As Game of Thrones fans, we are used to HBO playing games with our hearts, but you’d think on Valentines Day, they’d cut us some slack– well, no such luck. Those who were hoping for a trailer for the upcoming season of the award winning fantasy series were disappointed today when HBO’s promised teaser….well, simply teased us. We weren’t expected the video to drop until around 6 tonight, but, not surprisingly, the teaser was leaked early. You can watch it below
In the new teaser, HBO pulls at our heartstrings, showcasing some of the characters we have loved (or loved to hate) who have met their untimely demise. The faces of characters such as Ned Stark, his son, Robb, Joffrey Lannister, and most notably Jon Snow are showcased in the House of Black and White, along with memorable sound bytes from each character. Interestingly, some characters who are still alive and well are also featured as lifeless faces, such as Tyrion Lannister, Arya and Sansa Stark, and Ser Jorah Mormont. With no new footage from Season Six, the teaser is definitely not what we were hoping for day. HBO just loves to break our hearts!
