The Walking Dead may pack conventions just as well as the world of Westeros, but there’s no denying Game of Thrones as the biggest show in the world right now.

So much of Game of Thrones Season 6 has already been spent unraveling one death or another, but it seems Season 5 will give us at least a few back. Pedro Pascal returns to Game of Thrones for a new animated featurette of the Season 5 Blu-ray, along with a number of other alum.
Despite its underlying presence throughout the series, sexual violence in Game of Thrones seemed to reach a fever pitch in Season 5, as one particular rape sequence galvanized an outcry from viewers.

Now that the first Game of Thrones Season 6 footage has debuted, fans wait with bated breath to learn which characters new and old will put in 2016 appearances.

TV resurrections certainly hit a boiling point over the last few days, between last night’s dumpster-diving Walking Dead, or this morning’s surprise Game of Thrones revelation, a proximity not lost on the former’s creative minds. The Walking Dead took a playful shot at Game of Thrones for torturing fans, but is the pot calling the kettle (or perhaps just taking the) black?
Game of Thrones has had a rough go of keeping Jon Snow's Season 6 status under wraps, admittedly putting up a better fight than some, but at long last, the ex-Lord Commander is risen. Game of Thrones has officially confirmed Jon Snow's return by a surprising new poster, along with an April premiere!

Where is the weight in losing a character only to believe they’re alive or resurrected? Whether or not you’re an active TV watcher, one look at social media over the past several months will reveal just how much of a trend major TV deaths have become this year.
