The author, who penned the books on which the HBO original series is based, told Time magazine he pushed for Michelle Fairley's character to return following her Season 3 death. She avoided destruction by Joffrey, Cersei, Littlefinger and Ramsay alike - becoming a fan favourite in the process - and now she will either make or break her half-brother Jon Snow's reign in the North. "I think that is probably unlikely", Bloys told the publication. "We know for a fact he's not ready for this, the old Three-Eyed Raven said to him, 'You're not ready.' And so I think season seven is about Bran having to come to terms with that and use his powers carefully". However, since it has been confirmed that the show's eighth season will be its last, fans are now curious if they will ever get to see more of the hit series through spinoffs in the future. Now she sits the Iron Throne herself, her enemies dead and her most loyal followers - Jaime and her fearsome undead bodyguard the Mountain - are by her side. "David and Dan made a decision not to go in that direction in their story, pursuing other threads". Possibly on the theory that it would be a little tricky to lure Michelle Fairley back to the show, only to trap her in the make-up chair for hours at a time for brief cameos, Weiss and Benioff skipped the character. "And you guys will not be disappointed", she said.

"He could teach him about the Lord of Light, because I don't think Jon believes in anything apart from human integrity, so Beric could teach him that there is a goal behind everything, that there is a greater objective", says Richard Dormer, the man behind Beric's eyepatch. Instead of showing up for her trial, in one of the most powerful scenes of Game of Thrones yet, she "burns them all". It's a lot like an office baby pool, but there's a lot more bloo-actually, yeah, it's like a baby pool.
"It's very safe to say everything is on a bigger scale", he shared. But the stage is set for confrontations we've been anticipating for years. Perhaps most importantly, his identity as the son of Ned Stark's sister Lyanna and Daenarys' brother Rhaegar Targaryen was revealed - although not to him.
