All About that Joke: Game of thrones Season 6 Episode 1
You may have known already that the sixth season’s premiere of our favorite TV series, Game of Thrones, will be on April 24, 2016. Entitled The Red Woman, most fans guess that Melisandre will be on the center stage. But will she?
Another Teaser Trailer: Synopsis
Thanks to the numerous extremely brief teaser trailers and stills, we all have been sitting restlessly waiting for the premiere of the fantasy TV series. The HBO has done a great job indeed of marketing the series – it is an intriguing synopsis now, as soon as the official trailer has been released.
What does come to your mind as you read the line: Jon Snow’s death, Daenerys’ man, and Cersei’s daughter? Yes, maybe the HBO is making a joke.
First things first, Jon Show had died. And then he was resurrected. We also have seen him dead in the HBO’s playful teaser trailers. Now we are told that Jon Snow is dead. Isn’t it too obvious? Should we expect another resurrection scene?
And about Daenerys who has always been surrounded by a bunch of men, she’ll have space for one more. And Cersei, who always gets what she wants, it is interesting to see the price she’ll have to pay this time.
A Vague Synopsis
Since all casts were sworn to keep the storyline a secret, there is no way Kit Harington, Emilia Clarke, or Lena Headey says something about the first episode of the sixth season. But the official synopsis does not help either.
Jon Snow or any other characters may die, but may survive too. Daenerys or any other characters may meet real people or bad ones. And Cersei Lannister may feel love again, or else get her family to pay her “debts” for her.
The Red Title
Now let’s address the funniest joke of the HBO: the title. It, this time, is The Red Woman, should tell the whole episode, so it is highly unlikely that we shall see Melisandre for 55 minutes. She is magical and all with her mystic flair, okay. But she cannot make us watch her, and only her, during the airing of the first episode of our cherished TV series.
Then, who does The Red Woman refer to? It may refer to Melisandre, but may as well figuratively allude to Cersei. The woman seems to have a red aura around her, denoting her leisure pursuit in bloodshed. Otherwise, the red may also refer to Daenerys’ dealing with her deceased husband’s tribe, who makes butchery such an artistic virtuosity.
Hang Onto Them
It is clear that we, the devoted Game of Thrones fans, are all on our own of misery. Reading the sixth novel, The Winds of Winter, will surely not help us. Filming the books does not mean that each season covers each book, neither does each episode cover each chapter.
Now we are all left to one option: hang on to the HBO’s jokes – trailers, stills, synopsis. And wait impatiently for the premiere to air.
