It's interesting to learn who hadn't even read the pages by that point. Hannah Murray (Gilly) said she hadn't received her scripts yet. "Mystery, would be a good word. We don't do hard copies anymore because of security but I think they're on their way." John Bradley (Samwell Tarly) read his scripts and gave this description: "Rich. Bursting with ideas. Game of Thrones has always been bursting with tiny details, and the first few scripts we've received are absolutely following that trend." GAH! SEND THEM TO US! Sam and Gilly just left The Wall on a journey to Oldtown so Sam can train to be a Maester. That's a long trip, so we're very curious to see what happens along the way -- and how it goes when they're back near Sam's old stomping grounds.
Conleth Hill (Varys) stuck with the one-word tease to dub the scripts "Amazing." Safe, but probably accurate.
Natalie Dormer (Margaery Tyrell Baratheon) couldn't comment on the scripts. "I haven't read them yet. I got them [Thursday] night. On the long-haul flight home I can sit and power through them. There will be no entertainment system switched on on that airplane, I will be reading five GoT scripts." Five of them, eh? There are 10 episodes to every season but maybe only the first five scripts are out -- or out for the people who are OK'd to read them. Sounds like Margaery at least lives to Episode 5! So that's something.
Maisie Williams (Arya Stark), perhaps wisely, also chose to avoid reading the scripts. "I haven't looked at them. I was like, 'I'm not about to look at them before Comic-Con,' because I'd be too tempted to say stuff. All we want to do is be able to say, 'By the way, this happens and it's so cool and I want to talk to everyone about it,' but we can't. It's harder for us than people think." We can imagine. Carice van Houten (Melisandre) did the same, saying of the scripts, "Zero because I haven't seen them. I was afraid to start to read them while I was here, I thought I'd spoil something." Maybe she'd say something about Jon Snow if she really knew what happened, or her face would give it away, especially if her character were directly involved.
Alfie Allen (Theon Greyjoy) had this one-word script description: "Unpredictable." That's not a bad tease... So much of Season 6 will be unpredictable in general, since Book 6 has yet to be released. We're excited (and nervous!) to see what happens next. At least we know Bran Stark will be back, and it would be nice to see Rickon Stark and Osha again.
One guy who has also seen the new scripts is GoT language creator/consultant David Peterson who is now working on translating more Dothraki language for Daenerys Targaryen's scenes in Season 6. As he told Zap2it:
I probably got the first scripts around this time last year, just like now I'm getting the first scripts for Season 6. I actually knew before that that the Dothraki were coming back, because I had corresponded with George R.R. Martin about his book. He had mentioned that they were coming back, so I thought, 'Well, if they're coming back in the book then they're probably coming back in the show sometime.'"
It's going to be a long time before we see any of this in action, but more teases should be doled out later in the year, with a great (we hope) trailer and the Season 6 premiere coming early in 2016.
