‘Game of Thrones’ cast drops Season 6 bombshells in truth-telling game

These two have some things to say about season six.

Warning: Contains spoilers from Game of ThronesSeason 6.

LONDON As Game of Thrones has grown increasingly popular, the cast have become more and more secretive.

There’s the occasional vague hint or veiled reference about what may or may not be in store, but for the most part the actors particularly Kit Harington, for obvious reasons have mastered the art of silence.

Luckily, the folks at Yahoo came up with a way to get around their defences by organising a game of “two truths and a lie”.

The game which involved actors saying three statements; two of which are true and one which isn’t was played with Maisie Williams (Arya), Sophie Turner (Sansa), Isaac Hempstead Wright (Bran), Dean-Charles Chapman (Tommen) and Liam Cunningham (Ser Davos).

Chapman and Wright played it safe with set stories and Cunningham said that a character “will be silenced, that’s a truth” before realising he’d just messed up the core principle of the game but things got really interesting when Turner and Williams stepped up.

Here are the three statements Turner gave.

And here are the ones from Williams.

This is huge.

Assuming Turner and Williams aren’t completely lying to us with all of their statements (always a possibility, given the cast’s track record) they’ve just confirmed some pretty major plot points. Well sort of, anyway.

Let’s take Turner’s statements first. They’re all pretty big and they all could happen, but the second statement immediately looks suspect to us. Lady Stoneheart a.k.a. a resurrected Catelyn Stark has been absent from the show for the last couple of series, and many believe she may have been completely cut out.

Obviously we don’t know for sure, but our best bet is she won’t come back which, going by Turner’s statements, means a Ramsay Bolton death at some point in Season 6 (splendid news) and potentially some Arya Stark-style assassinations.

Speaking of Arya’s list, what about Williams’ statements? Well, first up, we think the second about her being in the trailer more than people realise is most likely true.

Obviously there were a few Season 6 trailers, but we reckon this is the one Williams was talking about.

And, more specifically, this moment at 1:14:

So if statement number two is true, which is the lie? No way of telling for sure, but we think Arya will go back to Westeros this season.

Her House of Black and White training storyline has been dragged out for awhile now, and it’s about time she put her skills to good use. If she does go back to Westeros it would make statement three the lie, which would tie in nicely with Turner’s statement about Arya crossing three people off her list.

So who might she cross off?

Arya’s original list in the show contained 11 characters, four of which are now dead. The remaining people are: Cersei, Walder Frey, Melisandre, Beric Dondarrion, Thoros of Myr, Ilyn Payne, and The Mountain. It’s worth noting, however, that in Season 6, episode three during one of Arya’s training sessions she only mentions three names: Cersei, The Mountain, and Walder Frey.

Could she really take out those three before the end of Season 6? It seems unlikely given they’re in different locations, but it’s worth noting that Arya doesn’t have to kill them herself, necessarily: if they die of other causes, they’ll also be crossed off.

Maybe she’ll take out one, and the others all of whom are likely to be involved in conflict in the near future will get taken out in other ways.

Whatever happens, if Turner and Williams can be trusted it looks like we’ll have some pretty big deaths coming up later in the season.
