Game of Thrones season 6 is just a few weeks away and Sansa Stark, Jon Snow, and Arya Stark themselves have revealed massive spoilers on what to expect: who lives, who dies, and how the latest season is the best of the series to date.
As reported by Cinema Blend, Sophie Turner, who plays the tortured Sansa Stark, revealed to EW that she will be one of the season’s highlights, and fans can expect more out of the series for its latest installment.
She stated, “I mean this season there’s like so many shocks, it’s massive, it’s the biggest season yet. And just like in terms of character development, so many people’s storylines, I’m so excited for. I’m so excited to see Alfie’s one this season. It’s going to be good.”
The last fans saw of Sansa was when Theon Greyjoy, played by Alfie Allen, was able to rescue her out of Ramsey Bolton’s hands. Since Greyjoy’s character had been silent these past few season, it looks that his comeback may have a significant role in Game of Thrones season 6.
Turner continued to shed light on Sansa’s destiny. “It was amazing because the past five seasons, it feels like it’s been building up and up to that. You can only suffer so much before she finally gets her, the respect that she deserves,” reports Independent.
Since the latest season will not have any book reference as George R.R. Martin has not yet completed the sixth book, fans have no idea how the story might push through. Since HBO has enticed series’ fans about killing off major characters such as Jon Snow, who will die this season, then?
When Emilia Clarke, the actress who plays Daenerys Targaryen, was interviewed by E! Online reporters, she stated, “Legitimately, this season almost killed us. Like, it is epic. Like, it’s huge. It’s insane. It’s silly.”
The actress’ statement gave rise to the presumption that other major characters may be killed off during the season. In fact, Game of Thrones season 6 spoilers gave a more in-depth look at who might have a big chance of dying this April.
What We Know So Far
With respect to Arya Stark’s character, actress Maisie Williams revealed that her character may also be experiencing major changes in her role in the season. She stated, “I feel like a lot of people were watching that [Game of Thrones Season 5] going ‘What’s going on why is Arya still sweeping floors?’ And I was kind of like that too when I was reading the scripts like, ‘Why am I still sweeping floors?’” She further revealed that Arya may continue her journey to uncharted territory.
With respect to Jon Snow, actor Kit Harington revealed that despite several speculations, “All I can tell you is Jon Snow… is dead. He died at the end of last season.” However, when he was prodded as to whether his spirit will live on in season six, he responded, “Who knows? We’ll have to wait and see. It’s going to be a very exciting season.”
Despite the actor’s revelation, which was also seconded by HBO programming president Michael Lombardo last year, Harington was spotted filming in Belfast. In fact, he was seen wearing a leather armor inscribed with the House Stark design. Because of such sightings, speculations arose that Jon Snow may partake in a huge battle to gain control of Westeros.
It was also reported that Jon Snow’s Stark bloodline may be something more than him just being a Stark. Fans speculated that he may be linked to the Targaryens.
With respect to Margaery Tyrell’s character, actress Natalie Dormer hinted that her character may be able to escape the dungeon in Game of Thrones season 6. When she was interviewed on “The Jimmy Kimmel Live,” the host asked her why she was filming in Spain if her character would only be seen inside dungeons. She then responded, “Well, there are dungeons in Spain.” Did she just hinted that Margaery would finally be out?
With respect to Tyrion Lannister, played by actor Peter Dinklage, may be revealed as a Targaryen. This theory first emanated when it was reported that the mad king Aerys II Targaryen once had carnal relationships with Joanna Lannister. This gave rise to speculations that Tywin Lannister may not be his true father.
Since it was also theorized that the three heads of the dragon would be revealed by season six, will Tyrion be declared as one of them?
Another report suggests that The Hound may be back. During the previous season, the character was last seen stabled by Brienne. However, he was only wounded and left for dead. It was not specified that he actually died from the stab wound. A fan even suggested that Septon Meribald may have been the one to save The Hound from death.
It was also reported that Lady Stoneheart, or Lady Catelyn Stark, may also be back in season six. This theory surfaced when a rumor suggests a “Red Wedding” to occur in the latest season. From previous seasons, it was shown that Robb Stark was murdered during a similar event. This marked a possible opportunity for Lady Catelyn Stark to have her revenge on Jaime Lannister.
Last but not the least, Mark Gatiss, the actor who plays Tycho Nestoris, may not be able to participate in further seasons of the series. He was allegedly asked by Jon Snow to find Stannis. A theory says that since the actor would not be able to join the cast, his character may not be able to survive the journey.
