Name of the first episode of “Game of Thrones” Season 6 is now out. It’s been titled “The Red Woman,” and Melisandre (Carice Van Houten) will in all probability take centre stage. The reason is not clear, though.

[Spoiler Alert] Will it be to bring back Jon Snow (Kit Harington) from the dead? Clearly, Melisandre is in dire need to prove her worth again, especially after the death of Stannis Baratheon (Stephen Dillane), who she believed was the true king of Westeros. Stannis burned his own daughter on Melisandre’s intimation. However, that turned out to be “death” for Stannis.

A sneak peek video from the next season posted on the YouTube channel of Team Coco shows Jon Snow as a dead body. It has also revealed a possible clash between Ser Davos (Liam Cunningham) and Ser Alliser Thorne (Owen Teale). Davos, Snow loyalists and his direwolf Ghost appear to be protecting Snow’s body from an attack by Thorne and Snow killers. Thorne and company are breaking down a door.

This has again spurred fans to speculate on the fate of Jon Snow. Why is Davos so hell-bent in protecting Snow’s body? Is it for a ritual to bring him back? Will Davos finally have a say over Melisandre and force her to perform a resurrection? However, Melisandre is not seen in the room hosting Snow’s dead body. Moreover, it is definitely not known which one of the two groups will survive.

“The Red Woman” episode synopsis reads: “Jon Snow is dead. Daenerys (Emilia Clarke) meets a strong man. Cersei (Lena Headey) sees her daughter again.”

“Game of Thrones” has shown that resurrection is very much possible. Remember the fight between Sandor Clegane “The Hound” (Rory McCann) and Beric Dondarrion (Richard Dormer) in “Game of Thrones” Season 3? Dondarrion was killed by The Hound but was resurrected by Thoros (Paul Kaye). Later Melisandre met Thoros who showed her Dondarrion and explained his many resurrections, made possible by the “Lord of Light.” Melisandre was astonished to see him possessing such great powers.

Here lies the clue. Jon Snow is stabbed inside Night’s Watch and he is assumed dead. Melisandre, after abandoning Stannis, came back to Night’s Watch. So she is there, too. Fans would love to see Melisandre bring back Jon Snow in Season 6, look into his eyes and once more say those words: “You know nothing Jon Snow.”

“Game of Thrones” Season 6 hits screens April 24. It will premiere April 25 on showcase on Foxtel Australia.
