It looks like Lady Stoneheart is coming back after all. Oh yes, you read it in the title, you read it here and you will keep reading it since it was a major spoiler dropped by Ian McShane himself. Season 6 is widely suspected for being the season in which the dead come back. We know for a fact that Jon Snow will return, but a lot of people have lost faith in Lady Stoneheart’s vengeance. Well, it looks like we will be getting it after all.
Game of Thrones has reached the moment feared and hated by many. The book and TV series’ storylines are now at the same spot. Nobody knows spoilers anymore, there is no telling who will die after season 5 anymore and nobody knows what extra characters might come forth that will make the story juicier. Every little insight we managed to get our hands on is the courtesy of an actor or some really pesky people who made their way “behind enemy lines”.
So where is Lady Stoneheart in all this story? This is where McShane comes in and drops a spoiler so hard that you simply know what he is talking about: “I’ll give you one hint. I am responsible for bringing somebody back that you think you’re never going to see again. I’ll leave it at that.” Now let they hype begin.
There is no way McShane will have anything to do with Jon Snow, at least this is what fans believe for the time being. So it has to be Stoneheart. There is no other plausible solution since there is nobody in the series anymore who could have such a powerful storyline that could change the game at this moment. Unless it’s Benjen Stark?
Still, Benjen is not expected in this series anymore and Stoneheart is something that fans have been looking forward to and crying for ever since the day season 3 ended. And the truth is that there is nobody in the North who can disperse justice upon the Freys, so we need Stoneheart to come in and settle some scores, forcefully, brutally, deadly and beautifully.
What do you think? Lady Stoneheart is coming back? Because it surely looks like it. Everything fits, the season, the moment, the location. The stage is set for Catelyn Stark to walk the realm again, but in a more grim fashion than she has before.
