Jon (Kit Harington) can be seen standing in his Lord Commander garb in the teaser, his long hair blowing inthe wind as he stares ahead, looking worried – reminiscent of footage from his exit from the battle with the White Walkers, featured in season five episode Hardhome.’We watch. We listen, and we remember,’ the voiceover says, along with the shots of the fallen leader, who is widely rumoured to be returning this season.However, as the Three Eyed Raven says ‘the ink is dry,’ the video’s pace quickly changes and it cuts to a shot of Jon being brutally stabbed, calling back to the devastating season five finale.The unforgettable moment is followed by flashbacks to the deaths of Ned (Sean Bean), Catelyn (Michelle Fairley), and Robb Stark (Richard Madden), as well as when Arya Stark (Maisie Williams) goes blind.One of the few remaining Starks – Sansa (Sophie Turner) can be seen in the flashback, in the moment she shared a kiss with Petyr Baelish (Aidan Gillen).Her fate was left in the balance – along with Reek’s, originally Theon Greyjoy (Alfie Allen) – when fans last saw her, as she tried to jump to freedom from Ramsay Bolton (Iwan Rheon).
