After the longest year of our lives, Game Of Thrones Season Six is finally upon us!

Yep, we can all stop googling Jon Snow clues because we’re at long last going to find out what really happened to our raven-haired Night’s Watch hottie!

We also can’t wait to see how ferociously pissed Cersei Lannister is, whether Arya Stark is still blind and if Sansa Stark really does manage to escape the despicable Ramsay Bolton – especially as she looks preggers in promo shots! And then there’s Daenerys Targaryen’s fate at the hands of the Dothraki to consider, not to mention what the future holds for witty drunken dwarf Tyrion Lannister!

But while there are so many questions to be answered, we can let you in on a few things going down in the lands of Essos and Westeros this season.

Read on if you dare…

This time it’s the game of girls!

The ladies are the ones to watch in Season Six, according to HBO programming president Michael Lombardo. “It’s the women we’re watching as the chess pieces move and it’s very exciting,” he says. Girl power!


Arya Stark (Maisie Williams)


Arya has been tough since the day dot, but Maisie – who jokes, “I play a serial killer and people call me a role model” – reckons she’ll be stronger than ever this season as she learns to live without her sight. “If Arya possesses one trait, it’s her incredible strength of spirit and resolve. There’s very little that can take her down. I think it will be her greatest test.”
