Winter is coming. Or, well, summer is coming, but in Game-of-Thrones-land, it’s always winter.
In typical HBO form, the name for the first episode of season 6 and the synopsis have been revealed, and strangely enough (wait, is any of this strange at this point?), they seem to contradict themselves. Why do we say this? Well, the first episode will be titled “The Red Woman,” which seems to be a clear allusion to Melisandre, the only red priestess we know. She’s also the one fans have long-assumed would bring back Jon Snow from the death.
Because Jon IS dead. The synopsis is clear:
“Jon Snow is dead. Daenerys meets a strong man. Cersei sees her daughter again.”
Maybe the people in charge of writing these were instructed to use as few words as possible? Give as little detail as they possibly could while still somewhat explaining what the episode was about?
Either way, Game of Thrones season 6 is almost here. The speculation is almost over. And although Jon Snow seems to be dear for sure, the title for the first episode has to be a good omen. Right? RIGHT?
Game of Thrones returns to HBO an April 24th, at 9/8c.
