Season 6 of Game of Thrones premieres April 24 on HBO. We are in mostly uncharted territory now, as the series has basically passed the books, storywise. (The new book in the 'Song of Ice & Fire' series, The Winds of Winter, was supposed to be out already but creator George R.R. Martin has let one or two deadlines slip.) So for the first time, Game of Thones fans who have and haven't read the books are in the same boat. Which makes the just-released S6 trailer all the more exciting. "I choose violence" intones Lena Headey's Cersei Lannister. Is Jon Snow really dead? (Probably not, or not for long. Watch the trailer, which is set to a cover of Chris Isaak's "Wicked Game" by James Vincent McMorrow (please no more covers of this song ever), below.
