The latest season of Games of Thrones has already gotten off to an electric start, with fights, escapes, flashbacks, and everything in between. Even the whole Jon Snow debacle was settled, finally giving fans closure over the character’s mysterious fate. So what’s next for the show now that all the big storylines are wide open? Well, how about the return of an old character?
Note that there are spoilers ahead.
According to Maisie Williams, who plays Arya Stark, Game of Thrones is finally going to reveal what happened to Rickon Stark. Don’t remember who that is? You’re not alone—he was last seen all the way back in season three when Theon Greyjoy captured Winterfell. Many people believed Rickon had been killed by Theon along with his brother Bran, but we already know that not to be true.
Luckily, Williams says we’ll see Rickon pop up in season six though she doesn’t provide any details as to what part he’ll play in the ongoing saga. Who knows what he’s been up to after all this time? If Rickon is indeed going to show up, it stands to reason that we’ll also once again see Osha, who helped Bran and Rickon escape Theon’s clutches.
