MANILA, Philippines – As the excitement over the season 6 premiere of Game of Thrones reaches fever pitch, a new teaser promo shows more thrilling footage.
"We deserve death, we all do," the High Sparrow pontificates, as plenty of new scenes flash quickly.
Drogon mightily soars above the khalasar who has captured Daenerys. This proves that Dany's dragon has, after all, survived its wounds from the uprising in Meereen.
Sansa Stark seems to be hastily running away in a snow-covered forest – presumably away from her husband, the abusive Ramsay Bolton. This comes after she and Theon Greyjoy, also a victim of Ramsay's cruelty, has jumped from the walls of Winterfell last season.
Brienne of Tarth is seen in similar-looking woods, preparing to fling her sword, perhaps at a bewildered Theon.
Wun Wun, who has been last seen at the Battle of Hardhome, charges through a gate of what looks like to be a stronghold at The Wall.
A cavalry charges in an epic-looking battle scene, while in the north of Westeros, the Night's King's threat looms larger and heads nearer south. Here, we see him grasping Bran Stark's arm, but we have yet to see if he suffers the usual ghastly consequences of, well, being frozen – or turned into one of them.
Unfortunately though, Jon Snow is nowhere to be seen in this new teaser, unlike the red band trailer.
Game of Thrones season 6 premieres on April 25, 9am in Asia (in simulcast with the US) on HBO and HBO GO. – Rappler.com
