Less than two weeks until the highly-anticipated Season 6 premiere of the show that has delivered phenomenal storylines and “oh my god” moments throughout its run. Yes, we’re talking about ‘Game of Thrones‘ and all its glory.
[If you haven’t seen the last season of ‘Game of Thrones’, don’t ready any further, there are MAJOR spoilers… or read at your own risk.]
Here are seven reasons why we’re excited for this cult hit to return to our screens.
1. JON SNOW’S FATE
Nope. No one talk to us. We’re still mourning over Jon Snow’s final scenes in the Season 5 finale. He was stabbed by his own men (so rude) and we were left hanging with the question – is Jon Snow still alive? Most likely not, but you never know with this show. We’re eagerly awaiting Jon’s fate.
2. THE RETURN OF BRAN
The last we saw of the younger Stark in the season four finale, he finally met the Three-Eyed Raven who appeared in his visions. The raven told Bran that he will never walk again, “but you will fly”. What could this mean? We need to know now!
3. THE WHITE WALKERS ARE CLOSING IN
We can almost taste the battle with the White Walkers. The bad news? They’ve launched an attack on Hardhome and completely overwhelmed the defenders. The worse news? They’ve resurrected the dead as wights (an army of dead) by the Night’s King. Uh-oh.
4. THE LOCATION OF DAENERYS
Where is our beloved Khaleesi? The last time we saw Dany, an entire khalasar had surrounded her in the Dothraki sea. Two of her dragons are chained up while the third had fled with her. Will she survive? Will the dragons survive?
5. TYRION LANNISTER’S NEW HOME
The end of Season 5 saw Tyrion fleeing to Meereen to join forces with Missandei and Grey Worm against his hated family, the Lannisters. Will Tyrion gets his revenge? We really love him and hope that he stays alive at all costs.
6. CERSEI’S WALK OF SHAME AFTERMATH
In what was one of the most powerful scenes of the Season 5 finale, Cersei had to endure a naked and exposed walk of shame after her partial confession of her incestuous relationship with her cousin, Lancel (but not with her twin brother, Jaime). We’re all wondering what’s going to happen in the aftermath.
7. A BIG BATTLE AHEAD
According to show runner David Benioff, Season 6 will have one of the biggest battle scenes in the show’s history. Yes, even bigger than “Blackwater”, “Watchers on The Wall” and “Hardhome” combined. DAMNNN! We need a moment.
The ‘Game of Thrones’ Season 6 premiere airs on 24th April on HBO in the US and 25th April on Sky Atlantic in the UK. Do not miss it!
