At Least One Dead ‘Game of Thrones’ Character Will Return for Season 6
Game of Thrones conspiracy theorists won’t pipe down until 2016 (and even then, probably never), but some spoilers are only too happy to smile for the camera. Take a break from your Kit Harington hunt, and check out which slain Game of Thrones star will assuredly return for Season 6.
You’re warned of Game of Thrones spoilers through Season 5 (and potentially 6) from here on out, but like Charles Dance, Nell Tiger Free isn’t hiding the fact that Myrcella Baratheon will make an appearance in Season 6, at least in some form. We last saw the character choking on her own blood, having been poisoned by Ellaria Sand and seemingly perishing in her uncle-father’s arms, though fellow Season 6 returnee Isaac Hempstead-Wright included Free in an off-set photo from Belfast:
We doubt that Free simply traveled to Belfast for morale, though like her on-screen grandfather, Free may well return in Season 6 to portray Myrcella’s corpse. Then again, we didn’t see her bethrothed Prince Trystane’s reaction to Myrcella’s mortal peril, and for all we know, the character carries a stash of antidote for just such an emergency.
Elsewhere of Game of Thrones Season 6, we know that casting has begun on a number of other new roles, several of which suggest we’ll follow Samwell Tarly on his departure from the Night’s Watch, while others seemingly confirm we’ll pick up with George R.R. Martin’s discarded Iron Islands subplots, and additional locations point to a number of flashbacks. Apart from a list of directors, debate continually rages as to whether Kit Harington’s Jon Snow will participate in Season 6, as while cast and crew deny it, story logistics seemingly confirm scenes set at The Wall in Season 6.
Game of Thrones will likely keep its other Season 6 secrets under wraps after that snoozer of a Comic-Con panel, but could Myrcella Baratheon return as anything but a dead body?
