It’s well worth watching this supercut of all the Game of Thrones season six trailers we’ve seen so far. For one thing, it’s the most Thrones you’re going to get to watch in one go before the show makes its return later this month. But, spliced together like this, it also gives you a bit more time to mull over what might be coming up.
Bear in mind, though, that when you get to the end of the trailer and hear those whispered words from Jon Snow – “All that time I was gone, it was as if I went to sleep for year. And when I woke up, the world’s fallen apart” – they are actually from the promotional clips from season four, not from the season six trailers (this is, after all, a fan-made trailer, courtesy of YouTuber ControvT).
Having said that, it’s also worth remembering that this dialogue never appeared in the series itself, just in the trailer, which could just mean it was a cunning piece of foreshadowing from showrunners David Benioff and DB Weiss.
Could we hear those words again in season six? You have to admit, they sound extremely fitting when it comes to that twist we’re all hoping for…
“All that time I was gone, it was as if I went to sleep for year. And when I woke up, the world’s fallen apart…”
Game of Thrones returns on 24th April on HBO and Sky Atlantic
