As George RR Martin officially missed his deadline for completing the 6th A Song of Ice and Fire book, The Winds of Winter, on December 31st 2015, we now know for certain that the Game of Thrones TV show will be getting ahead of the books. This of course means we have absolutely no idea what is coming, and for the first time in the show’s five season history, fans of the books are just as involved in guessing the next events in the saga of Westeros as fans of the HBO show!
So, given that everything is complete guesswork based on clues in the cast lists and filming locations, and of course on what we’d really like to see, here are some predictions for season six. This contains spoilers for the previous seasons and books.
Jon Snow Revived
When we left season five, things were not looking good for Jon Snow. His stabbing also happened in the end of the fourth book, but because the fifth book focused on events in other locations, readers are also still none the wiser as to what happened next at the Wall. Given that Kit Harington who plays Jon Snow has been spotted in locations where filming has been taking place for season six, it is safe to assume the actor will be on screen, but of course, Charles Dance returned to play the corpse of his very dead character Tywin Lannister, so this alone doesn’t assure Jon Snow will be alive. However, the most popular theories around what will happen to him center around the fact Melissandre is also at the Wall, and we know from previous scenes in the books and show that followers of her faith can perform resurrections.
