GAME OF THRONES: Season 6 ‘Event’ Promo & Ep. Titles: Past & Present Collide [HBO]

Eddie Eyre Luke Roberts Game of Thrones: Season 6

Games of Thrones Season 6 Promo. HBO‘s Game of Thrones: Season 6 TV show promo entitled ‘Event’ has been released. There is new footage in this promo: Arya jumping out of a building in Braavos, Jon Snow’s dead eyes being closed, The Red Woman getting undressed, two knights in Targaryen armor standing in front of a tower, etc. It was the two knights and the tower that were absolutely the most intriguing images of the promo, seen in action during the last trailer. That tower has to be the Tower of Joy (from the books) and if that is true, those knights are two of three heralded knights that serviced the Mad King on his Kingsguard. These Kingsguard knights: Oswell Whent, Gerold Hightower, and Arthur Dayne, were assigned to tower guard duty by his son Rhaegar Targaryen. The two knights, played by Eddie Eyre and Luke Roberts, are listed under different character names, a common ploy of Game of Thrones producers to throw off the curious.

Here is the bigger question: If this is the Tower of Joy in the promo i.e. a flashback and those are Robert Baratheon’s men that the Kingsguard fight, is [spoiler] deleted [spoiler end] there as well?  He was one of the five men sent to the tower to retrieve Lyanna Stark. Will [spoiler] deleted [spoiler end] make an appearance on Season 6 of Game of Thrones?
