All men must die, but occasionally they crop up again, and so Ned Stark returns.
With all the hype and excitement surrounding Jon Snow, and his inevitable return, you might be forgiven for not seeing this one coming.
Obviously this means that there will be some flashbacks in series 6, spanning some 50 years (sorry Sean) which will give a new dynamic to the show.
A glimpse into exactly what made Joffrey the horrid brat he was would be interesting, and some more info on THAT Jon Snow/Targaryen rumour would be nice. Update on that below if you have been living under a Northern rock.
We have to wait until 2016 to see exactly how and where Ned Stark returns – but one thing is for certain, and that’s that it is a flashback.
Winter is coming, and I couldn’t be more excited.
