"They have no idea what's going to happen."

You can say that again, Bran.

HBO has finally released the first teaser for season six of  and our boy Jon Snow (Kit Harrington) is front and center. But don't expect any insight into the fate of the fallen hero—or even any footage of the new season. Instead, get ready to relive Jon's brutal death, along with all the other misery that's befallen the people of Westeros in the last five seasons. Seriously, those poor, poor people.


With Jon the main focus of the teaser, HBO continues to play with our emotions over whether the beloved character will return—and how, if he does. Harington's standing tall—bloodied, but tall—in the first print ad for the new season, and he's been spotted in Spain (one of GOT's filming locations) looking very much like his alter ego. Add in the fact, reported by Pedestrian, that the network didn't include Jon Snow in an email promoting their "Honour The Fallen: The Memoriam Collection" toys and you've got the perfect recipe for a flurry of fan theories.

The actor's done a good job of keeping fans guessing, as well. "I've been told I'm dead," he said after the season five finale. "I'm dead. I'm not coming back next season." And HBO president Michael Lombardo is sticking to the story as well, telling reporters, "Dead is dead is dead is dead. He be dead...everything I've seen, heard or read, Jon Snow is dead."

Like Bran says in the teaser, we have no idea what's going to happen. Is it April yet?
