Is Jon Snow dead? The full Games of Thrones Season Six trailer is here

Is Jon Snow really dead? What’s going on with the White Walkers? Has the Mother of Dragons finally got her pets under control? The full trailer for Game of Thrones Season Six  is finally here, and answers to our questions aren’t forthcoming.

First up, there’s the matter of Jon Snow, aka Kit Harington. At the end of Season Five we all saw him brutally murdered at the hands of his fellow Men of the Night’s Watch. But of course, the debate rages on as to whether or not he’s really dead.

The trailer opens by panning over his seemingly dead body, and a voice thought to belong to Ser Davos is heard saying: “He’s gone”.

However, many keen fans have pointed out that later in the trailer, Snow is seen laid out in full armour, perhaps in preparation for a ritual of some kind? And there’s also the matter of the loyal dire wolf.

In a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it clip, Ser Davos stands over Snow’s body with a sword, yet the wolf is seen nearby still guarding the body. Do we have a resurrection on our hands? Or is Davos simply making sure Snow doesn’t rise again as a White Walker?

The team at Vanity Fair are also holding out hope that Snow may fight another day, with this possible sighting of a very much alive Jon Snow on horseback.

They’ve compared it to this leaked snap of Kit Harington on set, and the evidence does appear somewhat compelling.

Of course, the White Walkers are seen raging onwards still, and it seems that after five seasons of warning, Winter is no longer coming; it’s here.

Now, over to Daenerys Targaryen, aka Mother of Dragons, aka Emilia Clarke. In the last season, she’d pretty much lost control of those fierce fire breathers, until one of them (the most rogue of the trio, actually) swooped in to rescue her from an attack by the Sons of the Harpy.

In the new trailer, we see her looking a little worse for wear, marching along a dirty road in what appears to be blistering heat.

Tyrion, who in the last season travelled to the Daenerys camp in a bid to help her take over the throne at King’s Landing, is also by her side, ominously warning: “We are in the great game now, and the great game is terrifying.”

With a dragon circling overhead, and the words of the High Sparrow echoing in the background: “Everyone of us is poor and powerless, yet we can overthrow an empire” - is the Mother of Dragons finally about rain down fire on the Seven Kingdoms?

 Game of Thrones will return to HBO and Sky Atlantic on 24 April.

Until then, let us know what you're most hoping to see happen in Season Six...
