Another season 3 character returns!

It’s an exciting week in casting news- we have yet another return of a season 3 Game of Thrones character confirmed!

We’ll tuck the character confirmation below a cut just to be careful but personally, I don’t think the return is that much of a shock.

Welcome back….


Edmure! Thanks to Los Siete Reinos for uncovering this latest scoop.
Edmure

Edmure Tully is returning to Game of Thrones in season 6! Tobias Menzies was seen filming at the Riverrun set.

Catelyn’s little brother was last seen at his ill-fated Red Wedding to Roslin Frey. He’s been a hostage of the Freys since then.

With the return of Edmure and the Blackfish, and a huge, beautiful Riverrun set, season 6 is shaping up to be a very Tully season!

      And YESSS!!! Loving how season 6 is shaping up thus far! The spoilers in the last few days have been fantastic. Would love to get any Richard Dormer, Paul Kaye and of course Rory McCann sightings soon.

    2. Edmure’s absence was my only concern about Riverrun, so his presence is excellent news. Now I’m curious about the Frey side of the Riverrun scenes. Maybe we’ll see Lame Lothar or Black Walder, or a new Frey? Perhaps Jaime will travel to the Twins first to acquire Edmure from Walder Frey, so he can use Edmure as a bargaining chip for Riverrun?

    3. Whoo! So pretty much everyone is confirmed back between the Tully sightings, the Martell sightings, and the Greyjoy sightings earlier in the year. Only Gendry and the Brotherhood characters are still unaccounted for. Someone better be keeping an intense internet watch on Paul Kaye and Richard Dormer for me.

    4. Hopefully, a flashback where after his bedding ceremony, he walks back into the Frey chamber and says, “Um…did I miss something?”

      Afeastfordances,

      Paul Kaye and no Richard Dormer would be much more interesting, if you get my meaning.

      …curse you all for getting the LSH train rolling again. I was so over that. >_<

      Lol.. I am in the same boat. I told myself if she didn’t appear in S5, the dream was over and now look at all this??

        Quote  Reply

    6. I sincerly dont care about Thoros or Beric returning (and I’m one of those glad LSH was cut and wish it will remain so)… but Edmure’s one is amazing news ! He’s one of my favourite minor characters and I cant wait to see what’s in store for him… the Riverrun arc is really intriguing !

    7. Right now, I’m as excited about season 6 of GOT as I am about THE FORCE AWAKENS. I’m happy with the direction both seem to be going in… now it’s just about execution.

        Quote  Reply

    8. This doesn’t point to LSH any more or any less, as far as I can tell. After all, Edmure has nothing to do with LSH, as of yet. Until the Brotherhood actors are announced to come back, nothing at all will point to LSH. Unless, you know, the actress is actually spotted on set.

      GeekFurious,

      At a guess, there’re gonna be more executions in Game of Thrones 😛

      That new trailer was just downright gorgeous. To think how pessimistic I was when they announced Episode 7 a while back… but I’ll be damned if Disney hasn’t made me a believer. :O

    12. What a click bait title. When I see a title like that I’m expecting a big name to be returning. When I saw the title I thought you were going to confirm Cheese boy’s return, but no. Instead we get Edmure. Tobias Menzies hasn’t been in anything since GoT, so he was probably begging to come back.

      Very disappointed.

      Ahem…

        Quote  Reply

    13. Arkash,

      Mine too. People usually give him crap because he attacked the Mountain, but Robb didn’t tell him anything about his plan, dammit. He can’t expect Edmure not to attack the Lannisters when they’re only a stone throw away from his castle.

    14. Tobias Menzies is such an incredibly underrated actor, I was completely blown away by his performance in Outlander.

    15. mau:
      I don’t care for Edmure, but I like tying the loose ends.

      There’s not much to his character, but he and the Blackfish had a nice chemistry together. The arrow shooting scene that introduced them is still one of the show’s most amusing. We’ll see if he has more to do than play comic relief this time.

        Quote  Reply

    16. Poor, dear, hapless Edmure. What a situation. The absolute prettiest of the Frey girls as wife, yet she’s a Frey, and he’s been a prisoner. Glad to see him back, tho.

      Except for that role of his in Outlander on Starz, you mean? The one in which he played a double role? Yeah. He must have been super bored.

    19. The Tattered Prince,

      Robb was one of the biggest boneheads in the series, and Edmure should’ve been the one criticizing him to be perfectly honest. No blunder of Edmure’s can match the blunders of sending Theon back to his father, breaking his marriage vows, and executing the commander of a large chunk of his army (and those are just the “big” ones).

        Quote  Reply

    20. Robb Snow,

      I’m of the opinion that introducing LSH any later than season 4 would be a really bad idea. As much as I would’ve liked to see her back then, introducing her now wouldn’t work, and I hope it doesn’t happen. That ship has sailed.

    21. Jeb,

      Think you need to check your facts about where tobias menzies has been since he was last in GOT!…have a quick look on IMDB….that’ll sort you out…lol

    22. GeekFurious,

      Considering that Star Wars is and will be always my first love and I’ve watched the new trailer for The Force Awakens maybe fifty times since it debuted last night, I’d say I’m slightly more excited for that movie than I am for anything else. 😉 But that Season 6 is even in the conversation is a testament to how much great news we’ve been getting about Game of Thrones lately. The new installments of both franchises look like they’re shaping up to be fantastic.

      And The Force Awakens is now less than two months away. Game of Thrones won’t premiere for another six months. That’s plenty of time to let the hype build and build. 🙂

      That being said, if some magical being offered me the choice between being able to watch Episode VII tomorrow or see all ten episodes of Game of Thrones Season 6 instead (or even just read the scripts) … I think I would choose the latter. At this point, I have a strong idea of what the story of The Force Awakens will be, and the long wait is almost over. With Season 6, there’s still so much we don’t know, and it’s much further away. The annual dark stretch between when filming ends and we starting seeing trailers and other promotional material is going to be rougher than ever this year.

    23. Jared,

      I love GoT, but Star Wars is just on a whole different planet (pun intended). That’s part of the world’s cultural DNA. And it’s clearly become a generational thing, passed down from one to the next, and we’re here to witness it happening. Just don’t screw it up, Abrams!

        Quote  Reply

    24. I am so happy for the return of one my favourite minor characters! I’m with you @RobbSnow with regards to Edmure.

      It makes me wonder Roslin is not pregnant in the show, is she? I recall that in the morning after the Red Wedding that Walder Frey gloated over the fact that Edmure had spent his wedding night in the dungeon? I’m confused?

      Another nice addition to season 6 would be to have Genna or Daven Lannister included. (Though this may be asking too much?)

      Lol, I was bring sarcastic. I’m delighted Edmure/Tobias is back. It might have been expected given the Blackfish’s return, but it’s good to have some confirmation.

      This season seems like there’s so much going on, which is a good thing really. There’ll be less KL of course, and I expect a lot of stories will interact/join (e.g. more than we already know about), but there will be less filler (although I rarely consider many scenes to be filler anyway).

      Seriously can’t wait. It sounds epic.

    28. The Tattered Prince,

      It’s just a name. 😛

      Don’t get me wrong though: I don’t hate Robb and I certainly don’t think he deserved what happened to him by any stretch. But the true root of his demise was not treachery by Walder Frey or Roose Bolton… it was his own stubborn pride and rash decision-making. He got a lot of sage counsel from his mother, Roose Bolton (who even admitted he wouldn’t have changed sides had Robb been less arrogant), and even Talisa on a few occasions… but he ignored them all and just basically did whatever he felt was right without considering all of the consequences.

      And sadly, he paid the price for it… along with his mother, wife, and many of the people who followed him.

      Then again, that’s what the entire Stark storyline has been about: the fatal idealism of its leaders (Ned, Robb) replaced by the cold pragmatism of its younger members (Sansa, Arya, Jon, and Bran).

    31. I don’t care much about individual Tullys, but good to see loose ends tied up. Now if only there was some news of Gendry…….

      Star Wars will always be my first and truest love too! 🙂 And if I were offered the chance of watching it tomorrow vs. all the rest of GoT till the last episode tomorrow, I would have to choose the former! Not even any kind of comparison! Lol!

    32. mau: Gendry will return. This season, or in S7. I think it makes more sense to have him in S7.

      I’m actually pretty hopefully for his return. Especially with a certain someone returning to the Riverlands. But you’re right that it makes more sense for season 7.

    34. Hmmm. I wonder if this means we will finally get Lady Stoneheart. And I haven’t had a chance to read it yet but I just got “A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms” – since this season seems to be a lot of flashbacks I wonder if any of the stories in that book will be in this season?

      Those are really awesome stories, but no, nothing for this storyline except a few experiences/cameos from a small few who are still alive in this “current” time. Read them, read them, read them.

    36. Karsi,

      I seeeeeeriously doubt they would be. But you’re in for a treat. I’ve read the first two. My favorite thing about the Dunk & Egg stories is how GRRM was able to make them feel like they belonged in the ASOIAF universe, but gave them a more feel-good vibe ala traditional fantasy tales.

      Wow, seriously. I gave up hope for these FEAST story threads last season. But we should have listened and believed Benioff and Weiss last season. They smartly “delayed” these threads until they could be perfectly pared with their “Winds” payoffs.

      Kudos to them.

    39. Not sure if this has been mentioned yet or not but per Keisha Castle-Hughes’ instagram page she is in Almeria right now! This isn’t a surprise or a spoiler for us as we saw, courtesy of WotW, a bunch of dorne characters the other day enjoying a meal together. I thought it was note worthy though.

    41. I will never understand why those who obviously dislike D&D so much would bother continue to watch, much less come to a site which is a fan site for the show just to whine. There are certainly not above criticism, but the hyperbolic bullshit is, well…hyperbolic bullshit.

      (And yes, Jeb, I know your post was a joke. The Cheese-boy comment made that pretty clear…hahaha).

      Sorry for the li’l rant. Moving on…

      I wonder if I’ll want to smack Edmure as much this season as I did in season 3.

        Quote  Reply

    42. House Ray,

      I think the actor himself said that he was returning but there are no sightings I think. His all scenes should be in studio however, not here since I doubt Walder Frey would be traveling anywhere.

      The only retuning character I am waiting for now is Thoros. And maybe some other old brotherhood characters. There was a namedrop for Thoros last season and some new members of brotherhood seem to be retuning so I think Thoros could be quite likely to come back but maybe for only one scene or two so maybe they will shoot them later.

      Aye, and I’ve seen you say as much both here and on MakingStarWars for many months! And I think I’ve seen you on TVByTheNumbers as well.

      He may not have the red hair but Tobias transfer of Romes clutzy Brutus to Edmure Tully was a perfect translation of book Edmure

      Robb did make some mistakes along the way there is no denying that, but he was a great military strategist. Robb was in charge as the main commander of the army, and he ordered Edmure not to attack or engage the Lannister’s.

      Edmure disobeyed direct orders from his military commander. Robb as the commander is under no obligation to discuss his plans and military strategy with those under his command. In the army you follow orders, you don’t question or disobey your commanding officer. Jonos Slynt’s head was chopped off for disobeying direct orders. This is somewhat of similar situation.

        Quote  Reply

    54. Great news! Edmure is one of my favorite minor characters from season 3, probably because of Tobias Menzies’s performance (I didn’t really care about book Edmure).

      It seems that everyone now expects the return of LS, but she is definitely the character that I will not miss.

      It also makes sense to delay the siege of Riverrun. Season 5 was already crammed with storylines and I would rather see full scene, that happens later than a rushed one that happens at “right” time. But of course, book purists will always complain.

        Quote  Reply

    55. Not sure if I’m just paranoid, but with all these exciting inclusions, which are only what I wished for, I just wonder how they are going to manage to fit it all in ten 1 hour episodes.

      If I’m not forgetting anything, these are the different plotlines that we will be following for season 6:

      North + Jon (probably should have a lot of time spent on this due to set up and importance)
      Dany + Tyrion (relatively decent amount because of the characters involved)
      Arya (same as last season I would assume)
      Kings Landing/Jaime/Riverrun/Brienne/Sansa+Theon (not sure about how they will interact but I’m assuming Kings Landing would not be featured as much as it used to and Riverrun would be mainly toward the end)
      Sam (???)
      Dorne (??? but i feel like not much time would be spent on this storyline)
      Bran (??? but if hes having all these awesome visions I hope the suitable amount of time would be spent on them to give the best story)
      Greyjoys (??????????)

      Would someone like to reassure me that I’m just paranoid and season 6 will not be too rushed and be awesome as predicted?

        Quote  Reply

    56. Pointy End,

      Sure. The key point here is your assumption that Jon will have a lot of time devoted to him. Unlike Dany, Jon already has an army. All he really needs is a. to get resurrected and b. to show up in E9 for the battle – maybe with some small scenes showing his no-longer-humanity. Any flashbacks relating to him could equally be classified as a part of Bran’s story.

        Quote  Reply

    57. Luka Nieto,

      Yeah, the wildings (plus whatever Watch converts remain after the wildings slaughter them for their new undead king). I’m assuming that Sansa will be gathering the Northern Lords, and Jon will just drop in for the final battle. (And hopefully won’t stay afterwards long enough to chat, either: this would put Sansa/Rickon squarely on the “concerned with human matters” and Jon on the “not really, no” sides, which is how I like them!)

        Quote  Reply

    58. Boudica,

      He didn’t order him to not attack Lannisters. He only told him to keep Riverrun. Then was suprised that Edmure didn’t guess that he shouldn’t fight Lannisters who were attacking his land.
      Edmure didn’t disobey any orders. His only sin was that he wasn’t a mind reader.

        Quote  Reply

    59. Yaga,

      It’s Dany who has an army. Most of the wildlings who managed to escape with Jon are women and children. And there aren’t even many of them. So unless more wildling men magically appear south of the Wall ready to rally behind Jon for whatever reason (would need to be explained), I can’t see how they can be considered ‘an army’. The Night’s Watch has like 50-100 men and they will obviously stay at The Wall, maybe Edd will go with Jon. There’s a lot of ground to cover in Jon’s arc before we see him in the big battle.

    64. I would expect Jon/Kit Harrington to feature more than Dany this season. We know episode 9 will revolve heavily with him and that Dany will be a prisoner for the first 3-4 episodes. We also know that Dany returns to Mereen towards the end of the season so I expect her story arc to be brief and of escape and possibly in the end her setting sail for Westeros.

      Jon on the other hand needs to survive/be resurrected, have the tower of joy explained (rumoured episode 5), unite the North and do battle with the Boltons/possibly white walkers in episode 9.

        Quote  Reply

    65. JonSnowed: have the tower of joy explained (rumoured episode 5),

      That’s a Bran vision, and there’s nothing that would suggest Jon is in any way involved, or that he learns about any of it this season. In fact, Bran’s actor, as well as Max von Sydow (the three-eyed raven), were on the ToJ scene (as sort of ghostly witnesses during the vision), but not Kit Harington.

        Quote  Reply

    66. JonSnowed,

      Tower of Joy will have nothing to do with Jon. That is for Bran. yes the storyline potentially involves Jon but not really required to push his storyline forward.

        Quote  Reply

    67. It’s fantastic that the north and the Riverlands are going to feature so heavily this season – I know some had their doubts!

      Delayed continuation like this (characters popping up again after 2/3 seasons) is one reason that will make GoT such a satisfying “single watch” (not literally!) experience once it is finished. I can’t wait to watch the whole thing with my son when he “comes of age”

      Edited to say: It is also great to have Edmure back just because he is one of the few genuinely “nice” characters in the series. Useless yes, but nice all the same.

      Jon on the other hand needs to survive/be resurrected, have the tower of joy explained (rumoured episode 5), unite the North and do battle with the Boltons/possibly white walkers in episode 9.

      Here let me change what you said abt dany ..

      Dany on the other hand needs to survive/free from the capture..have the prophecy about stallion explained with the hut burning scene…unite the dothraki and do battle with yunkai and possibly set sail to westeros ..

      I do hope that LSH comes back for the same reason why you mention it mainly because it will drive the point that …jon’s resurrection is nothing unique or special. ..and many characters came back the same way in the story ..

    70. Robb Snow,

      If you mean killing Karstark, I don’t consider that a rash decision (though the show might have made it look that way). If the Lannisters had found out that Kevan’s sons were killed and that his murderer wasn’t punished (and they would have find out, sooner or later), they might have responded by killing Sansa or another Northerner captive. And then Robb would have had to deal with the killed Northerner’s family.
      It was a no-win situation, basically.

      He didn’t order him to not attack Lannisters. He only told him to keep Riverrun. Then was suprised that Edmure didn’t guess that he shouldn’t fight Lannisters who were attacking his land.
      Edmure didn’t disobey any orders. His only sin was that he wasn’t a mind reader.

      Edmure was ordered to stay put and hold Riverrun, instead he decided to attack Lannister force nearby -> he disobeyed orders. It doesn’t get much clearer than that.

      I don’t know why Robb didn’t share his plan with Edmure, maybe he was afraid of possible Lannister spies in Riverrun and decided to share the information with only few selected ones. Could be that Robb just didn’t trust Edmure, the fact that he was ordered just to stay put and hold shows that he didn’t trust Edmure with more complex missions.

I’m loving the direction we’really headed, including more book material we thought might be left out, and tying up loose ends. On a side note

      Arya will run into Gendry when she is in the Riverlands at the end of this season for just a minute leaving a cliffhanger for their interaction for next season. Just my guess obviously

      That’s why I’m leaning towards LSH being included. If they knew she was cut, they would say it publically like they did with other characters. Of course it’s not a sure thing by any means, but look at the hints. In season 4 ep 1 (right after RW timewise) sansa mentioned that Catelyns body had been thrown in the river. If they knew back then that they wouldn’t include her, they would have left no doubt, like maybe saying she was burned or got a treatment ala robb. D&D specifying that cat was thrown in the river is a clear evidence, that (at least at that time) they left a spot open for LSH. So by season 4, they still hadn’t discarded the character, and that’s only one season ago. Furhermore there was a lot of talk about catelyn in that season, in both sansa, Jamie and Briennes storylines, as supposed to Robb who also died but was only mentioned ones by Jon in the very first episode. Then season five arrives, both Jamie and Briennes arcs moved away from the Riverlands, so I asumed that was proof that she was now cut. But now they are both confirmed to come back to that place (from Dorne and Winterfell no less!) the showrunners were stalling those two characters story in season 5, and now they’re going out of their way to bring them back. Additionally the news about the Riverlands plot seams to suggest that arc is being played out to the full with outlaws, freys, Riverrun siege, Blackfish and Edmure. The Riverlands plot at this point is very much Jamie and Briennes plot, and LSH is essential to that plot, their oaths to her is what brings them back together. Jamie is also confirmed to film somewhere else in the riverlands. Michelle Fairly was spotted in Belfast with Clive Owen who we know is coming back. There was that unknown special effects thing that they were gonna do in S4, pushed to S5 and that we’re now just getting in s6. They could very well have been waiting for Jon to be returned for that to have more impact. After all, Jon is a bigger, more important character. We have hints that he’s coming back in the middle og the season, and Riverlands plot is confirmed to be in the end. I know it’s been talked over and over many believe that ship to be sailed. But there is definately hints that she’ll be introduced by the end of this coming season.

      I doubt he would just say things like that without confirmation.

    75. yaaaaaaay! I am so glad to see that this huge subset of the story isn’t going to be ignored; that leaves a lot of hope for all of the untied ends dangling out there, like Gendry. If they aren’t ignoring huge chunks of the story we are more likely to see a lot of loose ends wrapped up.

      While I don’t care much for the inclusion of Belwas, Coldhands, and (at this point) LSH, it is a shama about Willas and Garlan. While I underdstannd the choice based on production reasons (similar to how there’s no Arianne, Quentyn and Victarion), looking back at (especially) seasons 3 and season 4, there was more than enough room and reason to include them as minor characters then.

It’s the most faithfull adaptation ever made in the history of film and tv, telling a long saga with such precission. Young Griff appears to be the only storyline they’re not adapting. And do you really blame them? I don’t think many showrunners would have included Dorne, Kingsmoot, the siege of Riverrun and most surprisingly The Mereneese Knot, that they are actually taking three whole seasons to tell. Opinion is opinion and your entitled to yours. But facts are facts, and claiming that the showrunners are not being faithfull in telling this story is just plain wrong.

      So unless more wildling men magically appear south of the Wall ready to rally behind Jon for whatever reason (would need to be explained), I can’t see how they can be considered ‘an army’.

      I think if more wildling men do appear south of the Wall, it would be fair to assume that they are men that Stannis’ men captured and the Night’s Watch were holding prisoner. When Jon asks Stannis when he is planning on leaving, Jon says that they cannot continue feeding Stannis’ men and the wildlings indefinitely. If the only wildling prisoners were Tormund and the half a dozen or so wildlings at Mance’s execution, I don’t see the problem in feeding them considering they just lost fifty brothers.

      I really doubt that they wouldn’t tell him, of course they could have told him but after the interview was taken. This is what I belive is true if LSH does end up in the show.

      Also Martin lying is something I don’t really belive, not on this subject. If he knew she was in he would simply not mention her and say some other character.

      But we will live and see, one thing tough is that this ”hype” will likely never die and there will be speculation this season and most likely the next one.

      During/after Season 5 I would’ve understood people’s reasoning that D&D were going to tell their own version of the story, with Jaime in Dorne, Brienne in the North, Varys in Meereen, Sansa in Winterfell, Stannis/Selyse/Shireen deaths, etc. If these people have been following production news for this season, however, they simply can’t stick to that. Basically all of the characters/storylines are going to be roughly in line with the books, and the only subplot excluded is, as you mentioned, Young Griff/Arianne.

      As you will have realized by now my S6-hype train is unstoppable at this point.

      Actually, I like your point.

      While I’m not that keen to see LSH for various reasons it would be very interesting to see if they can pull it off. What I would like to see though is Arya going blind, start warging/dreaming (hopefully her pack in the Riverlands) and see the dead body of Cat in the river. Maybe even through Nymerias eyes (like in the book if I remember correctly?) which will both tie up her warging abilities, the wish for her to go home and for the viewers to witness the resurrection of Cat….

      Just hopeful thinking? 🙂

Seems more likely now than last season, anyway. I can’t understand why some people say that D&D don’t love this story. Or why some people say that they don’t respect book readers. Excluding Young Griff, they are bringing everything hardcore book readers wanted!

      LSH, not so much. I don’t know, she is in my list of characters I’m glad didn’t make it to the show (along with YG, Quentyn and Arianne). No particular reason. Too many resurrections, maybe?

      On the opposite side are Victarion and (yes) Belwas. I think he’s funny, ok? It would be cool to have them on the show.

      The only way I could see her dead and yet her visions come true is that she gives her life (kiss of life-ish) to Jon, and he meets Arya again and walks the walls of Winterfell, and Mel’s soul in some way is inside Jon and that’s why she saw it in the first place…

      Not that I can even begin to speculate the circumstances under which it’s happening, but if the filming reports are correct (which I believe they are) then both Jaime and Brienne are at Riverrun, meaning their characters are already together. This is already different from the books, since they most decidedly were NOT together at the siege. So it’s definitely possible that the show has bypassed the LSH aspect and has forced them together in the same location by some other “instrument” (Blackfish maybe?)

      Assuming Gendry and Arya both survive the series, I could see Gendry being used as a way to give Arya a “normal” life in the end. Ned once told Arya she’d marry some lord, so it’d be just like Arya to contradict that and marry for love instead. This could be Gendry’s ultimate purpose.

      Unless Brienne will take Pia’s part..(which is kind of sad for Brienne ) i don’t see how she can be there waiting for Jaime to deal with his siege. Bronn fill Payne’s place.
      They film out of order so it’s possible Brienne just arives at the end of Riverrun’s siege (episode 8) and take Jaime to were he is supposed to be at episode 10, they have a gap at episode 9 they can make the travel in that time..

      First of all, WiC is just speculating why those two characters would be in Dorne – there’s nothing wrong with that. Second of all, I never said I believe that speculation. Lastly, you can’t refute that those actors are where they are, you’re just being biased against a fellow fan site.

    110. Yaga: Sure. The key point here is your assumption that Jon will have a lot of time devoted to him. Unlike Dany, Jon already has an army. All he really needs is a. to get resurrected and b. to show up in E9 for the battle – maybe with some small scenes showing his no-longer-humanity. Any flashbacks relating to him could equally be classified as a part of Bran’s story.

      dragonbringer: Here let me change what you said abt dany ..

      Dany on the other hand needs to survive/free from the capture..have the prophecy about stallion explained with the hut burning scene…unite the dothraki and do battle with yunkai and possibly set sail to westeros ..

      They are two of the top 3 characters, both will have a lot of screen time in season 6. They both have a lot to do this season. Obviously Tyrion or Peter Dinklage will also always have a lot of screen time.

      Jon isn’t just going to be resurrected and pitch up for the battle in the episode 9. There are a lot that needs to happen, just like Dany has a lot of things that needs to happen. The show has been really good about creating parallel events between Jon and Dany. I suspect we will once again see them in similar situations.

      Going by filming schedules so far, I suspect that Jon will again have the most screen time this season. I think Kit Harington has by far been doing the most filming, so far. It isn’t just the big battle scene, he is currently in Belfast again.
      But ultimately it does not matter we will always see a combination of Tyrion, Jon, Dany and Cercei getting the most screen time they are the lead characters in the show.

      I’m just considering the possibility that what we’re seeing/hearing about is totally adapted material that cuts into Winds, not AFFC. If they are doing it exactly the way it is in the books, then Brienne/Gwendoline has no real reason to be at the Riverrun set. Tent at night is an interior shot. But it seems we’re being led to understand that she’s there with Jaime AND Edmure and Blackfish, which does not happen in the books. I’m just saying it could be AFFC/ADwD, or it could be something totally adapted or fabricated in the same spirit.

    117. Bitches, Karma’s a bitch. What goes around comes around and LSH WILL return. There’s no way they will cut this MAJOR chance of revenge, A BIG BOOK CLIFFHANGER and a Red Wedding 2.0 without her. ‘First, we’ll get the girls back, and then we will kill them all’. Not even mentioning the many other references made…Jon Snow is just a distraction…

      It’s one of the most memorable parts of the book and yes, I know this is the series. But..including ALL characters from this storyline, all of them being in the right place and not including the most intriguing and tragic part of this storyline would be very very lame storytelling and an insult to all fans. Our hopes were up before, but excluding her now would be outright torture. I won’t stop watching, I love the series like I love the book, but I would be very disappointed.

      Right, and that’s very possible/probable. But that wouldn’t take very long to shoot, nor would she necessarily have to be on the very elaborate Riverrun set to accomplish it. I’m just interested to know if she’s an integral part of the actual siege itself, which her presence at the same time as Edmure Tully and Blackfish is making me wonder about.

      Robb Snow,

      Then again, that’s what the entire Stark storyline has been about: the fatal idealism of its leaders (Ned, Robb) replaced by the cold pragmatism of its younger members (Sansa, Arya, Jon, and Bran).

      Not sure Jon or Bran could qualify as pragmatic. Arya, sure. And Sansa’s working on it.

      I understand what you say, i thought of that too…but it doesn’t make sense…
      I may be wrong but Brienne wasn’t mentioned in the scene with the Blackfish, which was shot prior to Monday, and i suppose that Jaime can’t have the Edmure scene with Brienne. It would be like Brienne is a Lannister soldier for real, i don’t believe she would just sit and watch this.
      I think she has a very important reason to go to Jaime and to take him somewhere.

      Of course there are the spoilers of her in Riverrun set, but i am really confused with the shooting schedule, there are many actors in NI now, and they can’t all be in the same one or even two places….maybe they take turns on shooting because of last week’s delay?

      With the reintegration of House Frey, House Tully, House Greyjoy, Yunkai, Bran&Co and Osha&Rickon into the story next season, at this point Gendry and the BWB are only loose ends left. Which is very impressive.

      Technically speaking, the brotherhood is not a loose end for the show. I don’t know about the books, but based on their presence in the show we don’t really expect anything of them – unlike Gendry and his boat. On the other hand, I’d love to see them return.

      That deserves a spin-off!

      Well, I will be the first to congratulate you, ser Edd, on being the lead in the far northern storyline for S6. Although, I must warn you, your character could get the ax prematurely once Tormund finds out that you and Wun Wun have been with his woman.

      Yaga,

      It’s Dany who has an army. Most of the wildlings who managed to escape with Jon are women and children. And there aren’t even many of them. So unless more wildling men magically appear south of the Wall ready to rally behind Jon for whatever reason (would need to be explained), I can’t see how they can be considered ‘an army’. The Night’s Watch has like 50-100 men and they will obviously stay at The Wall, maybe Edd will go with Jon. There’s a lot of ground to cover in Jon’s arc before we see him in the big battle.

      You’re forgetting that Wildling women are warriors as well.

    124. Matt,

      Unless D&D change places with the writers/producers of “The Young and the Restless,” I just can’t see the reason for a Gendry return being to tame (or, to paraphrase your words, “normalize”) Arya, followed by a wedding under the weirwoods in Season 8. To me, that would eviscerate five seasons of Arya’s plot line/character arc.

      Speaking of the Riverlands, has anyone caught wind of a Pod(rick)cast lately?

    125. dragonbringer,

      Of course that every resurrection is special and unique. It’s not like that happens everytime and it’s some sort of standard thing. Since show is very into doing parallels wit Daeny and Jon. I wouldn’t be surprised while Daeny will came out of that hut unharmed. Jon might be surviving pyre with the help of magic or something that makes people around drop to their knees. In this particular case will result in both of them being showcase as saviours and Dothraki and Wildling bowing down to them. Acknowledging their strength. While I would prefer something different than Jon and pyre, but it’s within the realms of possibilities.

    126. Matt,

      that is a beautiful & even possible scenario. i mean some of the characters must survive so that we can see how people live in the realm, after the main ending battle, in ASoS. why not arya & gendry ending up together? i love the idea!

      They are very good, you should give them a try, the action is quite better then the avarage TTG, and of course the typical Borderlands humour, wich is very well done!!
      It combines drama and comedy very well in my opinion. 🙂

      GeekFurious,

      That new trailer was just downright gorgeous. To think how pessimistic I was when they announced Episode 7 a while back… but I’ll be damned if Disney hasn’t made me a believer. :O

      Disney isn’t making Episode 7. Lucasfilm is. Disney is just the executive producer… the money bags. They are not the creatives.

    129. Ser Gerold Dayne: she told Arya about people she would kill and how the two of them will meet again.

      Unless the Arya eyes that Mel looks into when they meet again are Nymeria’s, just before she gets her throat torn out. Could conceivably happen before Arya herself sets foot back on Westeros.

    130. Why is it that, for every “complaining book purist” post, there are ten posts complaining about book purists? Just once I’d like to read through a whole thread without seeing that phrase (or some euphemism for it) used once.

    131. I have a friend whose been an extra on the Riverrrun set in NI the past week and he has said Jamie, Braun and Brienne are all there at the siege of Riverun. Along with Edmure confirmed here it has to mean LSH is making an appearance in episode 9 or 10 in season 6!

    132. I’m fucking elated!!! I’m so glad the Riverrun story is happening this season. I’m thinking S6 is going to be the best yet with all these Tullys and Northerners!

    133. Nice! Welcome back! Are we getting anything with David Bradley? I don’t think that the third season of “The Strain” has started filming yet so he should have time for “Game Of Thrones”…

      Dude, he was in his shift (i.e. a nightshirt type thing) in the book! How has that translated to ‘naked’? You perv 😛

      Sou,

      Because McCann is reported to be back this year, by this website.

      And also because it is so heavily implied the Hound still lives in the books, it’s like being hit around the head with a clue-by-four. 😀
