New glimpses of 'Game of Thrones,' season 6 (pictures)

We've barely scratched the surface of winter, and new "Game of Thrones" pics are here to warm us up. Let's frantically dissect them, one by one. (Caution: possible spoilers definitely await!)

Caitlin Petrakovitz
Caitlin Petrakovitz studies the Marvel Cinematic Universe like it's a course in school, with an emphasis on the Infinity Saga years. As an audience expert, she rarely writes but when she does it's most certainly about Star Trek, Marvel, DC, Westworld, San Diego Comic-Con and great streaming properties. Or soccer, that's a thing she loves, too.

It looks like we're picking up with blind Arya exactly where we left her -- blind and still in training with the Faceless Men.

Great news: Reek and Sansa Stark are alive! While not exactly the reveal we're all waiting for, this is big news and makes us wonder where the unlikely duo is headed.

Samwell Tarly and Gilly are on a ship bound for Oldtown. Has he heard the news about Jon Snow yet? Actually, do we know the news about Jon Snow yet?!?

With a standing Bran Stark (wait, what?!?) is the Three-Eyed Raven, played by Max von Sydow. (If you don't know the name, you might recognize him from the opening sequence of "The Force Awakens.")

Brienne of Tarth has very little blood on her for someone who seemingly just swung the sword to kill Stannis Baratheon. (You know, another death we didn't technically see.)

Jaime Lannister sails home -- with his daughter?!?? Another questionable death potentially answered.

Having been left by Drogon, Dany was last seen being surrounded by Dothraki. And it seems she was dragged back to civilization against her will to face judgment -- perhaps by Khal Drogo's enemies?

A glimpse of Balon Greyjoy, played by Patrick Malahide. Could this be the season we get into the politics of the Ironborn and the Kingsmoot? Please say yes.

Surrounded by the Bolton's flayed-man banners, is Ramsey Bolton (nee Snow) maybe searching for his lost wife, Sansa Stark?

After her Walk of Shame, Cersei Lannister is comforted by her brother-lover, Jaime.

The High Sparrow, played by Jonathan Pryce, appears deep in thought. Perhaps because Cersei made a false confession and is about to try to rain fire on him?

The Onion Knight surveys...what? Where the heck did we leave him again?

The Red Devil, I mean Queen, herself rides through the snow after -- wait! Wasn't that the scene of Jon's death?! OH COME ON, HBO.

Is this Queen Margaery being "treated" by Septa Unella?

Both Bolton men appear interrupted. Ramsey's not known for his patience.

Yara Greyjoy of the Iron Islands stands tall, perhaps before she sets off to try yet again to rescue her brother Theon.
