Jon Snow may have met his untimely demise at the end of last season, but rest assured that his death won’t go unavenged!
Game of Thrones actor Liam Cunningham stopped by Conan on Thursday night to reveal the first clip from season six. The new footage features Davos Seaworth (Cunningham) locked in a small room along with a handful of other men who were loyal to Snow while he was commander. Also in the room are Snow’s direwolf, Ghost, and, most importantly, Snow’s dead body.
As the men ready themselves to battle the Night’s Watch traitors who doomed Jon Snow to a Julius Caesar-esque fate in the season 5 finale, on the other side of the door, the same traitors are gearing up to break in and take the loyalists down. We see a few familiar faces among them, including Ser Allister Thorne and young Olly.
“I’ve never been much of a fighter,” says Davos before picking up a sword. “Apologies for what you’re about to see.”
Check out the clip for yourself below:
The new footage definitely serves to back up HBO’s confirmation that Jon Snow didn’t survive last season. With Snow indeed gone, we’re looking forward to finding out what transpires in the fight that’s about to go down between the loyalists and the traitors!
Game of Thrones returns to HBO on April 24
