Game of Thrones Season 6 already has a lot of answer for but this news might have just pushed us past the point of no return.

Actor Ian McShane just revealed that his new character will be ‘resurrecting a fan favourite'. This is us rn:

Apparently, it's a one off episode - which is kind of ideal because McShane has probably already been beheaded by George RR Martin for revealing this info.

I am responsible for bringing somebody back that you think you’re never going to see again. I’ll leave it at that.”

Ian McShane, dead man walking

THAT YOU THINK YOU'RE NEVER GOING TO SEE AGAIN!? What does this mean?! Well, it's safe to say that we all agree Jon Snerrrrrr will be making a coming back via Melisandre. And we imagine the chances of McShane retrieving Ned Stark’s head from King's Landing and reattaching it to his body is high unlikely. So who else could possibly be getting a glorious comeback?!



Grey Wind The Direwolf

Because killing the Direwolves was a barbaric and unjust move, GRRM. How dare you. 

Probability of a return: 0%. Not looking promising.


Lady the Direwolf

You can take away our Crows, but you will never take our Direwolves!

Probability of a return: 0%. BRING BACK... MY DIREWOLVES!


Benjen Stark

Because if we can't have Ned, we'll have Benjen. *chants BENJEN! BENJEN! BENJEN!*

Probability of a return: 75%. We didn't ~actually~ see him die, but GRRM probably killed him off cause he was bored anyway so that makes for a perfect resurrection excuse. 


Oberyn Martell

Because ALL THE REASONS. Obvz.

Probability of a return: -78%. He's dead and gone kids. Didn't you see that episode?!


Shireen Baratheon


Probability of a return: 5%. Unless she rises from the ashes like a Phoenix, and becomes the one true Queen of the Iron Throne. 


But on a serious note, if it's not Lady Stoneheart... we'll kick off. 

Send us your theories, who would you like to see make a glorious comeback?
