Fan favorite Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) is in danger of seeing her empire crumble in season 6. She was last seen in perilous circumstances, surrounded by a Dothraki horde, although Jorah -- and possibly a dragon or two -- may be coming to her aid. Macall B. Polay/HBO
Jaime Lannister (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) was last seen in Dorne and could have revenge on his mind. New trailers show him leading an army to the gates of the Sept and confronting the High Sparrow. Helen Sloan/HBO
The sadistic Boltons -- father Roose (Michael McElhatton, left) and legitimized son Ramsay (Iwan Rheon) -- look set to return to flay some more victims in season 6. But judging by new trailers, their army appears under attack from several fronts. Helen Sloan/HBO
Will a blind Arya Stark (Maisie Williams) continue her training after disobeying orders from the Faceless Men in Braavos? Mentor Jaqen H'ghar says she will get only one more chance. Macall B. Polay/HBO
The resurfacing of Balon Greyjoy (Patrick Malahide) gives hope to fans of the seafaring Iron Islands family that their story will be explored in season 6. Helen Sloan/HBO
Balon's daughter, Yara (Gemma Whelan), is one of the series' many strong female characters. She may be ready to seek vengeance on those who wronged her brother, Theon. Helen Sloan/HBO
Samwell Tarly (John Bradley-West) and Gilly (Hannah Murray) leave the Wall in season 6 so that he can train to become a maester. But as we've seen, there are few safe havens for anyone in Westeros. Helen Sloan/HBO
Two well-liked characters, Tyrion Lannister (Peter Dinklage) and Varys (Conleth Hill), will be seen in administrative roles, managing Daenerys' fragile empire in her absence. Macall B. Polay/HBO
The fiercely loyal Brienne (Gwendoline Christie) has so far failed to rescue Sansa Stark from the evil Boltons. But new trailers suggest she may still prevail in her quest. Helen Sloan/HBO
Bran Stark (Isaac Hempstead-Wright, left) appears here to be standing -- a marked improvement on his lower-body paralysis over the majority of the past five seasons. He's seen here with a new character, the Three-Eyed Raven (Max von Sydow). Macall B. Polay/HBO
