All the Secret Shots You Didn't Catch in That New 'Game of Thrones' Trailer

By Cindy Davis | Game of Thrones | March 9, 2016 |

Holy shit, that Game of Thrones trailer HBO released yesterday is dark (and full of terrors). I mean, literally dark. Without a closer look and shining a light, you’d have missed quite a bit. So, just for you, I cruised through the frames at a slower rate, and with the help of a photo editor, brightened what our naked eyes couldn’t see (there are a few crazy fast, gif-worthy moments, too). Let’s check out what was going on under cover of darkness, or speeding by too quickly to catch.

I also asked Genevieve Burgess (who has an uncannily encyclopedic memory of the books) to check behind me and add any notes she might have. Thanks Genny!

Here lies Jon Snow. For exactly how long,

Only Kit Harington knows.

Davos contemplating…likely the remains of Shireen’s pyre (*sob*).

Another burned body,

got6d.jpg

An army approaches; someone is advancing on the Boltons.

Melisandre (crying?) with Davos, probably mumbling about Jon being the chosen one.

got6e.jpg

Daario and Ser Jorah looking for Daenerys.

got6f.jpg

Jorah finds the ring Dany dropped.

got6g.jpg

Daenerys being “escorted” somewhere by the Dothraki (Dany is being escorted back to Vaes Dothrak, as she was supposed to be after Khal Drogo’s death to live out her days with the Dosh Khaleen, the widowed Khaleesis who live there. —Genevieve Burgess)

got6h.jpg

She looks up and sees either Jorah (if the shot immediately following is related), or Drogon (who is briefly seen later in the trailer).

got6i.jpg

High Sparrow.

got6j.jpg

The Greyjoys massing. (You can see a bit of the tip of the Kraken on the banners. And I’ve been to that location, it’s by the Carrick-a-Rede bridge in Northern Ireland. — Genevieve Burgess)

got6k.jpg

Indeed, I caught a better screencap and there’s the Greyjoy sigil.

Drogon.

got6l.jpg

Lancel Lannister (who was speaking to Cersei and the Mountain, when she says, “I choose violence”).

got6m.jpg

I think this could be the Tower of Joy flashback scene, among them young Ned Stark and Howland Reed. Here, they’ll encounter Ser Arthur Dayne.

got6n.jpg

Looks like Alliser Thorne behind the bearded guy. Confrontation at the Wall? — Genevieve Burgess

The waif is…

got6o.jpg

beating the crap out of…

got6p.jpg

Arya.

got6q.jpg

Margaery

got6r.jpg

Someone on horseback swings a fiery mace at

got6s.jpg

the approaching figure.

I’m unable to make out the banner markings here. (The only red banner I can think of off the top of my head is Stannis’s former banner. But the battle is probably against Bolton, given the earlier image of a flayed man being burned on the battlefield. Someone is rallying the remains of Stannis’ troops? — Genevieve Burgess)

redbanner.jpg

Theon is recaptured, presumably by Ramsay’s men,

got6v.jpg

and someone pushes his face under water. *Edited to add, as pointed out by John W., this may be Euron Greyjoy being born again from the sea.

got6w.jpg

Cersei and Jaime seem to have made up.

got6x.jpg

Brienne attacks someone;

got6y.jpg

presumably killing him. (This also looks like Stannis’s troops helmet to me. — Genevieve Burgess)

got6z.jpg

It looks like Dany may have had her ring returned.

got6aa.jpg

The Hall of Faces.

got6ab.jpg

Melisandre is disrobing yet again, and I hope she’s not making a shadow baby with Jon’s corpse, but I wouldn’t put it past her.

got6ac.jpg

It does look like a woman’s hands touching Jon.

got6ad.jpg

Is this Arya?

got6ae.jpg

Why?

Arryjump.gif

Euron Greyjoy (Pilou Asbæk) (Given the setting of a rainy bridge, this looks like the show is going to confirm the suspicion from the books that Euron killed Balon. Of course, Euron paid a Faceless Man to do it for him, and many suspect that’s where J’aqen Hgar ended up, but obviously the show had other uses for him. — Genevieve Burgess)

got6af.jpg

Tormund Giantsbane (Directly behind Tormund is a shield bearing the Bolton sigil. Why on earth would Tormund be fighting the Boltons and who would be leading him to do so? HINT HINT. — Genevieve Burgess A corpse? A reanimated corpse might want to rally some troops. — Cindy)

got6ag.jpg

High Sparrow with Margaery

got6ah.jpg

Not sure who this is. (Looks like Sparrows in Kings Landing, maybe. — Genevieve Burgess)

got6ai.jpg

Arya blind.

got6aj.jpg

Sansa on the run.

got6ak.jpg

A gloved hand reaches for…

got6al.jpg

Longclaw.

got6am.jpg

Turns out that gloved hand belongs to…

longclawgrab.jpg

Davos, who’s with Jon’s corpse,

got6an.jpg

as is…Ghost. Because of the wolf’s dirtied up bottom half, I wondered for a moment if Bran had warged into Summer and somehow gotten to Jon, just to be with him when he *died.*

Kudos to the editor, who managed to bring in allusions to just about every Jon Snow lives theory (Melisandre, Longclaw, Ghost). Now, all we have to do is endure the long wait until April 24th.
