GAME OF THRONES Unveils Cryptic Season 6 Premiere Title And Synopsis

GAME OF THRONES holds it secrets close in premiere teases!

If there’s any show desperate to keep its secrets– despite the fact that they’re leaking all over the Internet– it’s Game of Thrones. So it’s no surprise that they’re not saying too much about the much-hyped Season 6 premiere.

HBO reveals that the episode will be called “The Red Woman.” The nickname refers to Melisandre, who is expected to play a major role in the Jon Snow saga this season. However, it seems unlikely that her big moment will come on that quickly, so perhaps the title is a bit of a red herring.

Meanwhile, HBO’s description for the episode is just three short sentences:

“Jon Snow is dead. Daenerys meets a strong man. Cersei sees her daughter again.”

Clearly, the show is still trying to convince people that Jon Snow isn’t coming back. While fans are probably hoping Dany’s “strong” man is actually Strong Belwas, the character was reportedly cut from the series, so who is she meeting up with? As for Cersei, expect more pain for the character because we know the daughter she’ll see again is long gone. Then there’s the biggest question of all: Besides some fateful meetings, what’s really happening in this episode?

The Game of Thrones Season 6 premiere, “The Red Woman,” airs April 24, 2016 on HBO.

In case you missed it, here’s HBO’s description for the entire sixth season:

“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.”
