8 Best Game of Thrones Season 6 Fan Theories!

Unless you’ve been held captive by the High Sparrow and his band of sanctimonious goons for the past eight months, you know that Game of ThronesSeason 6 will premiere on HBO this season.
For the first time, even book readers are mostly clueless as to what might be in store, as most of the storylines in David Benioff and D.B. Weiss’ acclaimed adaptation are past the point where that George R.R. Martin has reached in his ongoing series of novels.
Obviously, the big question on everyone’s mind is whether or not Jon Snow is truly dead.
Naturally, the Internet has some interesting theories about the newest Lord Commander of the Night’s Watch – as well on just about every other character that probably survived season 5.
So check out our list of the best Game of Thrones Season 6 predictions in the gallery below.
But be careful – spoilers are coming:

1. Coldhands Rides Into Our Lives

Coldhands Rides Into Our Lives
Coldhands is a mysterious (and probably undead) character from the books who assists Bran and Hodor in their travels. Reports from the set indicate he’ll make an appearance in Season 6. A common fan theory is that Coldhands is the reanimated version of Benjen Stark – Ned’s brother and a member of the Night’s Watch who has long been missing and presumed dead. GRRM has shot this theory down – but he’s also been to mislead his audience just for fun.

2. Clegane Bowl: Clash of the Badass Brothers

Clegane Bowl: Clash of the Badass Brothers
The huge, terrifying brothers of the Clegane family – Gregor and Sandor – both had brushes with death way back in Season 4, but we didn’t actually SEE them expire, and since GoT loves a good death scene, that probably means they’re still alive. Sandor was left for dead by a pissed-off Arya Stark, whereas Gregor was revived by Qyburn after his fight with Oberyn and now seems to be serving as Cersei’s personal badass. The brothers have plenty of reason to dislike each other, and many fans believe they’ll do battle this season.

3. Lady Stoneheart: One Pissed-Off Mother

Lady Stoneheart: One Pissed-Off Mother
Book-readers have been awaiting the emergence of Lady Stoneheart since season 3, when Catelyn and Robb Stark were both cut down at the Red Wedding. For the uninitiated – Lady Stoneheart is Catelyn Stark in vengeful zombie form, and it’s hard to believe GoT producers would pass on such a cool character. The actor who plays Thoros of Myr is returning for season 6, and many believe he’ll see him bring Catelyn back to life.

4. Jon Snow’s True Parentage: FINALLY Revealed?!

Jon Snow's True Parentage: FINALLY Revealed?!
Let’s get this out of the way right off the bat: Jon Snow is definitely coming back in Season 6. He’s too important for the show to go on without him. Many fans believe the book AND the show have been hinting for years that Jon in the illegitimate son of Rhaegar Targaryen and Lyanna Stark. It’s unclear how his parentage might lead to his resurrection, but many believe Jon’s royal blood will motivate Melisandre to bring him back to life.

5. Daenerys + Jon + Tyrion = Winners of the Great Game?

Daenerys + Jon + Tyrion = Winners of the Great Game?
They may well be the three biggest fan favorites in Westeros, and in Season 6, they might finally team up. In Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire books, three “dragonrider” are foretold in a prophecy. Obviously, the Khaleesi has three dragons – and many believe Jon and Tyrion will ride the other two when she torches Westeros and takes her place on the Iron Throne.

6. The Ultimate Pie Prank

The Ultimate Pie Prank
That Red Wedding was pretty brutal, eh? No surprise that all these years later some folks are still pretty angry about it (See: previous entry on Lady Stoneheart). And this is Westeros we’re talking about, so you can expect the revenge to be grisly and brutal. Many fans believe a scene from the books in which a Stark bannerman kills some Freys, turns them into human pies, and feeds them to the unwitting Freys and Boltons will be brought to life this season. We love it.

7. Ned Stark: Back From the Dead?!

Ned Stark: Back From the Dead?!
Believe it or not, there’s talk of the writers taking us waaaaaay back to season one by reintroducing Warden of the North himself, Ned Stark. Don’t worry, the show’s not gonna jump the shark by having some ambitious maester figure out a way to re-attach severed heads. Instead, we’ll likely get Ned in flashback form. Internet sleuths have determined that he’ll be played by English actor Sebastian Croft, and the flashback may offer some insights into the identities of Jon Snow’s mother and father.

8. Tyrion Will Get Drunk and Say Something Witty

Tyrion Will Get Drunk and Say Something Witty
Hey, we didn’t say ALL of these theories are gonna blow your mind. We decided to play it safe with this one by prognisticating that everyone’s favorite imp will toss back a gallon of vintage and cut his rivals down with some withering bon mots. Even in Westeros, there are certain things you can rely on.

Someone is leaking the plot of every new ‘Game of Thrones’ episode — and HBO is trying its best to stop it

Helen Sloan/HBOWarning: Spoilers ahead for “Game of Thrones” season six. The internet is darker and more full of spoilers than ever these days — and “Game of Thrones” is no exception. But the problem that has arisen in the last several weeks has nothing to do with spoiler-filled discussions of the episodes after they air. A man known as the “Spanish Spoiler” is uploading videos to YouTube in which he details the entire plot of the upcoming week’s episode. But he’s doing it two full days before HBO airs the show. In each video description, the mysterious YouTuber writes the following disclaimer (roughly translated using Google): I cannot put spoilers for the 3rd episode of the 6th season of Game of Thrones, because HBO forbids it. But we can always count predictions, theories, and make analysis of what will happen. And who knows, maybe guess everything. Nothing about the Spanish Spoiler’s descriptions is guesswork. Multiple plot details were revealed to be accurate for the first two ep…

Here's the script for episode 6:[ These are translations from FD(Freaky Doctor)'s videos on Youtube ] Content may or may not be 100% accurate, I’m just translating what Friki has posted.

The last episode is the longest episode of the season and the longest episode of the entire series so far clocking in at 81 mins according to IMDB

Friki starts his video with explaining he did a livestream for episode 7 because he is on vacation and can’t dedicate himself to edit a video while on vacation (valid reason)

We start in Kings Landing, where we are in the dragon pit where not everyone who was in the north is present. Friki says Dany will bring the unsullied and Dothraki incase that Cersei has a trap for her and places her armies outside Kings landings doors ready in case of a trap. Jamie and Bronn oversee KL’…

Why Is Westeros So F*cked Up?

There comes a moment in the fifth season of Game of Thrones (and I believe the third book of A Song of Ice and Fire) when Lord Varys, of all people, possibly reveals what the entire series is all about. In pleading with Tyrion Lannister to hold on to hope at the lowest point of his life, Varys asks him to imagine a world in which the strong do not prey on the weak, and where the neverending political intrigue and blood feuds are left behind. This being the shifty Varys, such lofty words are best taken with a grain of salt. Still, his suggestion makes one wonder: Is A Song of Ice and Fire ultimately the story of a long, bloody transition from a feudal, monarchical system to some kind of proto-democracy, in which all castes have a voice, and the nobles and the various religions must yield to the rule of law? In other words, can the game of thrones finally end, replaced by a civilization that actually works? This leads to another question, a far simpler one: Why is Westeros so hopelessl…
