Is it April yet? Is it?
The answer is, of course, no, but not for lack of wanting. The new year promises to be jam-packed with good TV, and though we love the holidays, we can’t help but dream of a time-turner or a time machine so we don’t have to wait anymore. But, alas, in the absence of those, we’ll just have to watch and re-watch the new tease. Oh, and speculate. Yes. Speculate.
If the tease is to be believed, the new season is all about…well, Jon Snow. The days when were were arguing about whether Jon was dead or not are long gone. HBO hasn’t come out and said it, but it wouldn’t spend all this time and effort to highlight a character we won’t see again. So Jon is alive. He’s coming back.
And he’s not the only one.
The only other character who gets significant screen-time in this admittedly short teaser is someone we haven't seen in a while: Bran Stark. And with the brothers taking center-stage this season, could this finally be the year we get our long awaited reunion?
Let's cross our fingers, and ask the Many Faced God, the Lord of Light and the Seven to have mercy upon us.
Game of Thrones returns to HBO in April 2016.
