Will Tyrion and Sansa Die? Eerie Trailer


In the eerie trailer for Season 6,  the Hall of Faces at the House of Black and White shows the faces of the fallen Starks (Catelyn, Ned, Robb) and others like Joffrey —  as well as a few faces that were alive last we checked (Sansa, Tyrion).

Are Tyrion and Sansa there because all men must die (eventually), or is this foreshadowing? What do you think?

    I wondered if the teaser might be Arya dreaming? A bit like the strange visions she had when she went blind at the end of the last season. I’ll be sorry if Sansa and Tyrion die (at this stage anyway).


    I have wondered if Sansa (if she is in part based on mother and daughter Elizabeth of York and Elizabeth I of England) might be the younger more beautiful queen that Maggi told Cersei to watch out for.

    All the “show regulars” are pictured at the end there, not just Sansa and Tyrion, but also Daenerys, Arya, Jaime, and Cersei. Their promotions always seem to be “remember how much we’ve shocked and entertained you in the past? Well come back for more, and this was no exception.

    Don’t look too deep into it, it’s clear that the marketers didn’t IMO.

      Ha. Well, I just keep worrying about Jon Snow. I know that is ridiculous since his probably dead, or maybe not given all the hype. And, I know that book Jon may live even if TV Jon doesn’t. The thing that really caught my eye in the trailer was that it wasn’t Jon who is dead.

    (Watcher, Elizabeth of York was Elizabeth I’s grandmother; her mother was Anne Boleyn.)

    Definitely a dream sequence.

    Good to have you back, Jamie.

      Thanks! Well, we will see how this season goes. Blogging is a major time commitment (20-30 hrs/week) and I work full time, so I frequently suffer from burn out. This has been made worse because some newspapers and writers have stolen ideas from this website. (Hard to motivate yourself to blog when you think, “Oh, I’ll work 20 hours on this feature and then I’ll spend all Saturday afternoon writing DNC takedown notices after illegal websites steal it.” I had an illegal gambling site steal every article published here a while back. ) Fandom articles (or news articles) are not hard — they only take an hour or two, but I’m not that good at them. But, the longer features about history, which is what I think people like to read, take me 20-30 hours. So, it really grates if people steal ideas from them and don’t even link back. Anyway, enough grumbling, but that is why the number of history articles has fallen off in the last 1-2 years. It is also why I go on hiatus in the winter.
      The thing I should mention is that I love writing the articles and I love corresponding with people through the comments. This is why, in spite of myself, I keep this blog going and I keep publishing. But, the copyright issues have made me hold back when I have an idea that I get really excited about. Sometimes I write 3/4 of an article and just stop because I’ve gotten so demoralized because of the thefts in the past.

      A ‘deliberate mistake’ to test you out ME (and I NEVER tell fibs {ho ho})., Yes of course Elizabeth of York was Henry VII’s Queen.
