Game of Thrones Season 6 is drawing near, and HBO has unveiled the premiere episode's title and synopsis. If you were hoping for some confirmed details or hints at what to expect, you'll be disappointed. But that won't stop you from speculating anyway, will it?
The Season 6 premiere episode is titled "The Red Woman," of course in reference to Melisandre, and the description offered reads only:
Jon Snow is dead. Daenerys meets a strong man. Cersei sees her daughter again.
While there isn't much to go on there, HBO also released a new synopsis of Season 6 itself:
Following the shocking developments at the conclusion of season five, including Jon Snow’s bloody fate at the hands of Castle Black mutineers, Daenerys’ near-demise at the fighting pits of Meereen, and Cersei’s public humiliation in the streets of King’s Landing, survivors from all parts of Westeros and Essos regroup to press forward, inexorably, towards their uncertain individual fates. Familiar faces will forge new alliances to bolster their strategic chances at survival, while new characters will emerge to challenge the balance of power in the east, west, north and south.
Between "The Red Woman" as a title, Jon's body stuck in Castle Black, the zombie experiments happening in King's Landing with The Mountain, and the cryptic scenes Melisandre and Jon shared last season — not to mention Melisandre's penchant for doing weird things like birthing shadow babies — it's not a stretch to think that maybe, just maybe, Jon Snow will be coming back from the dead this season, one way or another.
Is Jon Snow coming back from the dead?
'Game of Thrones' returns to HBO on April 24.
