“When you play the Game of Thrones you win or you die.” While apt in the season one age of Sean Bean, as we head into season six of the smash hit HBO show, the statement doesn’t seem to hold nearly as much water.
For those who need a refresher (spoilers abound, but really, it’s been more than five months so no complaints, please), at the end of season five, commander of the Nights Watch Jon Snow kicked the bucket at the hands of his fellow Nights Watchmen. Conveniently, Melissandre, priestess of the Lord of Light who has been known to raise the dead, arrived at the Wall just a little bit before Snow’s unfortunate demise.
Speculation about Jon Snow’s fate has been rampant in the months since the season finale, and now HBO has revealed the first poster for season six, adding coal to the GoT hype train, which is now officially departing the station once again.
