Is John Snow dead?
Have the White Walkers taken over?
Will Daenerys Targaryen conquer Kings Landing?
These are just a few of the questions that avid fans were awaiting the answers to last night when the premiere of Games of Thrones Season 6 hit the screens in the UK.
As the haunting music boomed through the television, the excitement built for the long awaited new series.
The opening was just what the fans had ordered…John Snow lies dead in a pool of his own blood as his dire wolf howls in mourning.
As the story line continues, Princess Sansa and Reek are seen running from wolves, but Brienne of Tarth saves them in the first heated battle of the season. Brienne then lowers her sword and swears a vow to Sansa.
In Kings Landing, Cersei Lannister is greeted with the news of her daughter, Myrcella’s death, which viewers saw as the last season ended. The first murder of the season happened in Dorne where Prince Doran is stabbed by Ellaria Martell, this is quickly followed by the murder of Trystane his son.
The story then heads over to Marine where Tyrion Lannister is ruling, dramatic music builds and screams grow louder as he walks towards the harbour to find all of boats ablaze. Is this the work of The Sons of the Harpy?
Most female fans idolise Daenerys Targaryen, but unfortunately as the plot continues we find out that the Dothraki have taken her. However, upon tells them her identity she is banished to the Dothraki widow’s keep. How will she survive?
Meanwhile back at The Wall, Sir Davos has managed to protect John Snow’s body. As the episode draws to a close we see Melisandre, commonly known as The Red Woman, taking off her necklace and changes into a bedraggled old woman. As one of the least dramatic endings to an episode, fans still have hope that John Snow will be revived.
