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…

The show, based on music from the hit HBO show, is described as a “music and visual experience that will bring the Seven Kingdoms to life on a scale never seen before.” The USC marching band kicked off the event, marching through the streets of Hollywood while playing the “GoT’ theme, to the delight of the hundreds of fans and to the chagrin of cars in traffic. https://www.instagram.com/p/BI3Un2gDKKe/embed/captioned/?v=7 Inside the venue, Bran Stark himself, Isaac Hempstead Wright, introduced “Game of Thrones” composer and tour mastermind Ramin Djawadi. RELATED HBO Confirms ‘Game of Thrones’ Will End With Eighth Season Djawadi explained the idea for the tour came from the TV show’s creators. “We were in the studio together reviewing some music and one of them said, ‘I would love to see this live. I want to full orchestra. I want to see a choir.…

There’s a new heir to the Iron Throne, and nobody on ‘Game of Thrones’ noticed

Tommen has a new successor. Good luck getting anyone in King’s Landing to care, apparently. Caution! Spoilers immediately ahead for Game of Thrones Season 6, Episode 2, ‘Home.’ Go watch it, it’s a really good one.  The body count in Westeros is really starting to pile up — and the return of oneresurrected Lord Commander doesn’t begin to make a dent in the numbers. In Season 6’s first two episodes, three of the Seven Kingdoms’ most powerful leaders have been usurped and unceremoniously tossed on the scrap heap: Roose Bolton (along with his wife and hours-old heir), Balon Greyjoy (last of the participants in the War of the Five Kings and the last of the leeches burned in the fire by Melisandre) and Prince Doran Martell of Dorne (that guy in the bathrobe and wheelchair). But the most important death is the one that barely got any attention: the poisoning of Princess Myrcella Baratheon, sister to King Tommen and official heir to the Iron Throne. She was the last Baratheon in Westeros — leg…
