As we ascend into 2016, anticipation only grows for the upcoming sixth season of Game of Thrones, itself the furthest beyond author George R.R. Martin’s published works yet. It had seemed increasingly unlikely Martin might publish sixth novel The Winds of Winter ahead of the HBO series, sparing literary readers some potential spoilers, though the author at least hints an update will arrive soon.

Season 5 in particular kept people out in the snow on several major figures, but at least one character we can count as truly, sincerely no more. So sayeth the word of an official book.

If Game of Thrones Season 5 had any notable crack in the facade, it was Jaime and Bronn’s ultimately arbitrary adventures in Dorne, a stand-in for a long-delayed book plot returning us to the Riverland Tullys.

The fifth season finale of Game of Thrones left both viewers and readers in the lurch, finishing the extent of published storylines for characters like Daenerys and Jon Snow.
