Game of Thrones Season 6 Poster Features a Favorite Son's 'Return'

Heavens to Hodor, Game of Thrones sure loves messing with us.

How else to explain that this Season 6 poster, obtained exclusively by TVLine, prominently features Robb Stark’s face?

Yep, the deceased King in the North graces one of the HBO series’ new character posters. (For the others, follow @gameofthrones on Twitter.)

As you’ll recall, Ned and Catelyn Stark’s son was killed in Season 3, a victim of the infamous Red Wedding massacre… so why is his mug on promotional materials for the upcoming season?

The short answer: We don’t know, aside from the fact that the faces of several dead characters (and living ones, too) also appear in a recently released teaser trailer set in the House of Black and White’s Hall of Faces. And, unless the three-eyed raven chooses to drop some knowledge on us, we probably won’t have any better of an idea until the drama returns on April 24 at 9/8c.

We’re sure you’ve got theories, so give the poster below a good look — and click through our gallery for more spooky faces! — then hit the comments with your thoughts.

    Hopefully it’s a flashback depicting Robb naming Jon Snow (stark?) his heir as it pertains in the books.

    Not loving this “dead people” marketing campaign. Much more interested in what’s gonna happen with the characters that are still alive.

    • I have to disagree. I think it makes people wonder and speculate more than any previous season teasing – at least the people in my environment. Plus: I’m still not over the red wedding and seeing Catelyn and Robb brings up all the emotions again :-)

  3. Drew R. says:

    Maybe rob will be stoneheart?

    • Kevin says:

      That would be ridiculous. Stoneheart should be the one from the books. Creepy and spooky would make this show even better

    • A fan of TV says:

      I hope not. Earlier promo had Catelyn in same context as Robb here, so if Stonegeart is coming I hope it will be her.

      • Walkie says:

        They aren’t going to use Stoneheart. The time has passed when they could. Also, the showrunners have been clear that they don’t find the character interesting or impactful to the plot.

  4. Viviana Danna says:

    Arya may be using the faces as she goes out for revenge!

  5. Jax&Juice's Girl says:

    One of the faces really looks like Catelyn Stark. I hope they somewhat bring this Lady Stoneheart character to life on the show!

  6. Amy says:

    Can someone name all the faces? I’m usually pretty good at recognizing the actors but there were 2-3 of the men that I didn’t.
