The web is dark and full of spoilers for Game of Thrones season six. And while the following is—at this point—in the realm of rumor, you have been warned.


The Game of Thrones community blog Watchers on the Wall has a source claiming to have spotted a former cast member in Belfast, where the show is shooting. Not only that, this former Throner is said to be staying at the same hotel as the rest of the series’ ensemble. So…who could it be? Here’s a clue: you didn’t actually see this character die.

Jon Snow!
Nope. I mean, maybe. Kit Harington has been spotted in Belfast with Snow’s signature locks, but this is not a “Jon Snow Lives” item.

Stannis (the former) Mannis?
Nope. As far as we know, he’s dead to us and the show. (Shireen, we miss you!)

Barristan Selmy?
I know he’s still rolling in the books, but let it go, readers!

Catelyn Stark???
Pay attention to my clues, Lady Stoneheart lovers! We saw her die.

Syrio Forel!?
Not today.

Sandor Clegane ?
YUP! That’s the rumor. Rory McCann’s been spotted in Belfast. He has no projects on his announced docket that suggest he might be shooting something else. And we did NOT see the Hound bite it. Arya left him for dead, but…that’s a big “but.”

Could he come back to help a Sansa on the run? Or get payback on an blind Arya? Or open his own pub, where chickens are more plentiful than chatter?

Kristy Puchko wants you to know McCann plays a “little Scottish guitar” in his downtime.
