New Rumor Suggests Potential ‘Game of Thrones’ Season Six Plotline

By October 19, 2015

Full disclosure: I’ve only read the first Game of Thrones book. So I don’t know what I’m about to tell you means exactly. But I’m ok with that if you are. So…let’s get to it.


Fans of Game of Thrones want answers, and they want them now. What happened to Jon Snow? Is Jon Snow ok? And also, WHAT ABOUT JON SNOW??? While the fate of Ned Stark’s bastard remains to be seen (or will it? Hahaha, I’m kidding. Of course it will), there are still roughly 497 other characters on the show whose stories will continue in the upcoming sixth season of HBO’s massive hit. We’ll see the return of Bran Stark, Max Von Sydow will portray the Three-Eyed Raven, and Ian McShane will be awesome as only Ian McShane can. But what about everyone’s favorite swashbuckling duo of Jaime Lannister and Bronn? According to a report from ScreenCrush, there’s a chance they’ll be bringing a major storyline from the books to the small screen.

One of the bigger questions that’s lingered over the show for the past few seasons has been the fate of Edmure and and Brynden “Blackfish” Tully, both last seen exiting the banquet hall right before the Red Wedding ruined everyone’s lives forever. Rumor has it that Clive Russell, who played Blackfish Tully, has been spotted on the Game of Thrones set sharing a scene with Nikolaj Coster-Waldau and Jerome Flynn. This has led to speculation that season six will feature a journey to the Riverlands, home of the Tullys. This will perhaps be the long-awaited adaptation of a major storyline from A Feast For Crows and feature a big conflict between Jaime and Blackfish. As yet there has been no sign of Tobias Menzies, who played Edmure Tully, on set, but he has a role on Outlander and may be unavailable right now. This could of course lead to a Game of Thrones recasting, but nothing has been announced yet. As always, this is rumor stuff anyway, so take it with many, many grains of salt. Regardless of what storyline he’s involved in, Clive Russell was great as Blackfish back in season 3, so his return is certainly welcome news.

Game of Thrones season six will air sometime this spring on HBO.

    I would love if this storyline comes to fruition, as Feast offered up this plot-line and I’ve found it hard to believe it’s been ignored by David and DB this long. Do we have an air date for S6 yet?
