The newly released “Game of Thrones” teaser trailer does one thing right: It tickles the imagination and leaves it there.

[Spoiler Alert] The dream-like sequence, set in the House of Black and White in Braavos, is pretty dark and shockingly displays faces of favourite characters, some of them fans have not seen for a long time.

More shockingly, it shows dead faces of characters that were very much alive in “Game of Thrones” Season 5. Fans see dead faces of Arya Stark (Maisie Williams), Sansa Stark (Sophie Turner), Tyrion Lannister (Peter Dinklage), Jamie Lannister (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) as well as Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke).

The teaser does not give away much about what is going to happen in “Game of Thrones” Season 6. However, it does suggest that some of the previous characters such as Ned Stark (Sean Bean), Catelyn Stark (Michelle Fairley), Rob Stark (Richard Madden) and Joffrey Baratheon (Jack Gleeson) may make a comeback, now that Bran will be using his psychic powers and set the path right for a Stark revenge.

However, the teaser also means that very-much-alive and breathing characters of Season 5 might be dead. Everybody’s head is on the chopping block.

However, Jon Snow’s fate is a different talk-point altogether.

“The Long Night is coming, and the dead come with it,” says Jon Snow’s voice as his face appears.

Fans have long speculated his fate. Some believe he will be resurrected by Melisandre (Carice Von Houten), while some feel he will turn into a White Walker. What Snow says in the teaser is in line with “the dead come with it” option. It’s up to fans to decide if Kit Harington is coming back or not and even he does, in what form.

It is also possible that the faces shown in the trailer are all Arya Stark’s visions. HBO has increased its level of secrecy, not giving away anything. After all, Season 6 is one of the most anticipated seasons this year as the show is not taking material from George RR Martin’s “A Song of Ice and Fire.” The next book is still incomplete and the show had no other choice but to craft its own storyline.

“Game of Thrones” Season 6 will premiere on April 24, 2016 on HBO.
