First ‘Game of Thrones’ Season 6 Clip Has Davos Defending a Dead Jon Snow

First ‘Game of Thrones’ Season 6 Clip Has Davos Defending a Dead Jon Snow
After months of waiting, HBO finally released the first footage from Season 6 of Game of Thrones with a new trailer last month, confirming numerous times that Jon Snow (Kit Harington) is actually dead. The end of that trailer featured Liam Cunningham's Davos Seaworth in a room with Jon Snow's corpse, apologizing for not being a fighter before drawing his sword. The trailer then goes to back. Many fans were confused about what might happen next. Thankfully, Liam Cunningham appeared on TBS' Conan last night, where he shared the first clip from this season. And it shows exactly what happens after the trailer cuts out.

In the original trailer, we could see that Davos was in a room with Jon Snow's corpse, along with his direwolf Ghost and a number of Night's Watch brothers. After the trailer debuted, some fans thought that Davos was actually going to kill Ghost, or possibly behead Jon Snow. As it turns out, all of those theories were wrong. The actor previously teased that there are "certain parties" in Castle Black that don't want Jon Snow's loyal followers around, and this scene shows who those "certain parties" are.
This clip shows that after Davos draws his sword, the Nights Watch brothers around him also do so, as they turn to face the door, waiting for none other than Ser Alliser Thorne (Owen Teale), who orders one of the Night's Watch brothers to start breaking down the door. Unfortunately, we don't see what will happen after the door is breached, but it's clear that Davos will defend the corpse of Jon Snow, along with his loyal followers. This should provide quite the interesting dynamic at The Wall in Game of Thrones Season 6.

Davos Seaworth was first introduced in the Season 2 premiere, and he's been by Stannis' side ever since. We saw in the trailer that Melisandre (Carice van Houten) admitted to Davos that the great victory she saw in the fire was all a lie. Now that their leader Stannis is dead, it will be interesting to see what will happen with Davos and Melisandre, and how long they actually stay at Castle Black.
Before the clip, which you can watch at the 1:49 mark below, Liam Cunningham revealed that author George R.R. Martin told him a secret that nobody else on the show knows but, unfortunately, he didn't spill the beans about this secret, thanks to the "network snipers" that were in the audience.
