Game of Thrones releases cryptic Season 6 trailer with 'dead' faces of Jon Snow, Tyrion and Daenerys

Game of Thrones has released an ominous teaser for Season 6, giving fans a dark and confusing insight into what is to come.

The trailer is set in the House of Black and White, where Arya Stark has been living, and shows a handful of the most prominent characters in the Hall of Faces - indicating that they are dead.

Ned, Catelyn and Robb Stark's faces are seen in the stone pillar, and King Joffrey. All died in previous seasons.

But then we see Jon Snow (will he be raised from the dead?) followed by Tyrion Lannister, Daenerys Targaryen and Bran and Arya Stark - who were all very much alive last time we saw them.

The new series starts on 24 April on HBO and Sky Atlantic.

And the teaser has done exactly what it intends - causing a flurry of excitement and confusion among fans who are questioning what will become of their favourite characters.

The characters are heard saying:

"The man who passes the sentence should swing the sword" - Ned

"I’ve won every battle but I’m losing this war" - Rob

"Show them how it feels to lose what they love" - Catelyn

"Everyone is mine to torment" - Joffrey

"The long night is coming and the dead come with it" - Jon

Ominously, the second half of Jon's quote about death is accompanied by a close-up of Tyrion's face.

But could the room full of Starks, Snows, and Lannisters be an Arya or Bran vision?

There’s no actual footage from the new season here. HBO is keeping everything secret and could pull off a few surprises since there are no more book clues.

Or is it simply a warning that everyone's head is on the chopping block now? As the saying goes, "All men must die"...
