How thirsty are you for the start of "Game of Thrones" Season 6? It's coming in just a few days, but if you're drinking in every new bit of intel you may want to check out HBO's final promo before Sunday's April 24 premiere episode, "The Red Woman."

As you'll see, most of the footage is recycled. However, Entertainment Weekly -- whose critic got to see the premiere in advance, lucky sod -- added this intriguing detail:

"A little insider nugget: That very first shot in the trailer that arcs down on pre-dawn Castle Black? That's the very first shot of Sunday's premiere..."

Sounds like confirmation that the first storyline we'll follow in Season 6 will be at The Wall, even if it's not directly picking up from the final shot of the Season 5 finale -- Lord Commander Jon Snow lying dead (yes, DEAD) in a pool of blood at Castle Black, after being stabbed by members of his own Night's Watch.

Liam Cunningham (Davos) told TVLine his character will spend part of the premiere "moving" dead Jon Snow "around a bit." He teased, "It's like 'Weekend at Bernie's.'"

The premiere, written by showrunners David Benioff and D. B. Weiss, has the synopsis, "Jon Snow is dead. Daenerys meets a strong man. Cersei sees her daughter again." The title is "The Red Woman" but are we sure it's Melisandre? She probably has a role but the second trailer hinted to at least one other red woman out there, visiting Tyrion and Varys in Meereen.

As you probably saw, after the Season 6 premiere event, critics warned that the twists ahead in Episode 1 will shock even hardcore fans who have been speculating about what happens. We have all been warned.
