HBO released a bunch of promotional stills for the upcoming sixth season of Game of Thrones on Thursday, and oh my god do they answer zero questions. Well, that's not entirely fair; there are some things we can glean from the photos before season six premieres on Apr. 24, like…

One of the commenters on ONTD noticed that the pattern on the barely visible cape in the bottom-left corner of Melisandre's still looks a lot like the pattern on the cape Sansa's wearing in all of her promotional images. If true, that would mean that the two characters will share the screen for at least one episode, if not the whole season.

Could Sansa be teaming up with Melisandre to seek revenge on every person who ever wronged her, raining a cleansing hellfire down upon the corrupt institutions of Westeros? I would be very into chaotic good Sansa. For more evidence of such an alliance, remember that the elder Stark daughter does have a documented history of resembling whomever she swears her allegiance to, and her middle-parted braid and billowing hooded cape do somewhat resemble a powder-blue palette swap of Melisandre's.

Off-topic, but why am I not more into Melisandre? I don't get it. She's a witch. She destroys patriarchal institutions. Her name is vaguely French. I should be so into her! And yet.

8. Cersei is forced to endure the humbling, but necessary, Florence Henderson period of growing out her hair because she is truly the people's queen (mother).
