With just a month left until the Season 6 premiere and plenty of secrecy still surrounding it, fans are eager to learn anything they can about the goings-on in Westeros. For months, HBO has been teasing Game Of Thrones audiences with sneak peeks and behind-the-scenes videos of the series.
The latest of these videos is filled with awesome interviews that discuss the process of making the GoT prosthetics. But in showing us how the magic is made, we might have also been given a glimpse at an important scene in the upcoming season.
In the video, we get to see how the makeup artists create and apply prosthetics to the White Walkers and their army of wights. And although the show has been shrouded in mystery, this video unveiled a key scene.
The last time we saw Bran, Hodor, and Meera, they followed a Child Of The Forest and entered the mouth of the cave where they meet the Three-Eyed Raven. One of the shots in this video shows what looks like wights tangled in the roots of the tree.
As far as we know, the power that reanimates the wights doesn't work in the weirwood tree. But if these scenes are any indication, that might not stop them from staking out the land and going after Bran.
As we saw in the latest trailer, Bran will have to face the Night’s King at some point, but it looks like it could be sooner than we expected. I guess we'll just have to wait a little while longer to find out for sure.
After an entire season of silence, I'm really looking forward to seeing Bran's storyline unfold. And facing the White Walkers soon after leaving the safe haven of the cave — which could lead to Bran warging into Hodor — would be an action-packed way to welcome him back to the show.
Be sure to watch HBO's video interviewing the skilled artists who help bring the magical Game Of Thrones universe to life and who turn George R.R. Martin's fiction into reality.
'Game Of Thrones' returns to HBO on April 24.
