Game of Thrones Season 6 got us all pretty anxious with its recent Hall of Faces teaser. The mysterious dungeon of sterilized, masks taken from the dead, included the faces of character who had not yet died in the show. Game of Thrones is getting pretty implicit about every character’s life being danger.
Capitalizing on this sense of trepidation, HBO has released a new series of character posters for the upcoming Season 6, featuring even more faces. 17 characters in total make their ghoulish appearance, with some surprising inclusions. They are Tyrion, Daenerys, Jon Snow, Sansa, Arya, Jaime, Cersei, Daario Naharis, Melisandre, Oberyn Martell, Tormund Giantsbane, Nymeria Sand, Joffrey, Robert Baratheon, Catelyn Stark, Ned and Robb Stark
Game of Thrones Twitter page has tweeted a few of the individual posters with memorable quotes from the subject characters. You can see a few of them below!

For me, some of the surprising inclusions are Tormund and Nymeria. In Tormund’s case, it’s hard to tell what further role he’ll play in the story after the events of season 5. Will we see him continuing to lead the Free Folk?
Also Nymeria Sand. Again, after what transpired in Dorne last season Doran Martell might not tolerate any more subterfuge from the Sand Snakes and Cersei’s bloodlust is sure to escalate when she learns of Myrcella’s death.
What is the meaning of all this? HBO why you so cryptic?!
Hopefully we’ll still get a proper trailer between now and when Game of Thrones Season 6 premieres on HBO April 24th.
