With Season 6 of Game of Thrones starting in a few days, I've decided to write a short article just listing my hopes for the upcoming season.
My first hope is about one of my favorite characters Jon Snow, the Season 5 finale shocked me, and I'm sure it shocked you fans too, where we see Jon get betrayed and stabbed by some of his fellow Night's Watch brothers. In the Game of Thrones clip that was aired on Conan it shows Davos Seaworth, Ghost and a few Night's Watch brothers who are loyal to Jon, seemingly protecting his body from the mutinous Night's Brothers. My hope is to see Jon Snow get revived by the red priestess Melisandre, and to see some of the mutinous Night's Watchmen get what they deserve like Alliser Thorne who was probably the mastermind in the mutiny.
My second hope is again about Jon Snow where I want to see Jon Snow's true mother to be revealed, I'm sure I'm not the only fan who wants to see this. I believe in the R+L=J theory where Jon Snow's true parents are Rhaegar Targaryen and Lyanna Stark, Eddard's sister. We know in Season 6 there will be a Tower of Joy flashback scene where we see some of the Targarygen kingsguard, maybe we will get a scene that might tell the truth of Jon Snow's true mother this season.
My third hope for this season is to see the Stark's get their revenge on the houses that have betrayed them in previous seasons, like the Bolton's and Frey's. There will probably be some northern lords who will like to avenge the Stark's. So the north remembers, I do hope to see either the Bolton's and the Frey's fall this season. Winter will come for the enemies of the Stark's. I do also hope to see the Lord of White Harbor Wyman Manderly be introduced. I would like to see Roose Bolton and Walder Frey be killed off this season. I feel like the writers will keep Ramsay Snow alive this season.
My last hope for the new season is about everyone's favorite Lannister, Tyrion. I would like to see how Tyrion's story develops more, he will probably be ruling Mereen in Daenerys' absence as at the moment she's a hostage of the Dothraki. Tyrion will most likely release Viserion and Rhaegal, in the trailer Tyrion says 'Dragons do not do well in captivity. Which is true, as Viserion and Rhaegal are pretty vicious to Daenerys. At the end of the latest trailer we see Tyrion in the crypt where Viserion and Rhaegal are. It will be the most likely conclusion to it. I would also like the theory about Tyrion actually being a Targaryen to be true, where he's the son of the Mad King Aerys Targaryen, not Tywin Lannister. I do hope that Tyrion will one day ride one of Daenerys' dragons, maybe he could ride Viserion. Then Jon Snow could ride Rhaegal. I love speculating things for Game of Thrones and my excitement levels for the new season are through the roof!
Let me know in the comments your hopes for Season 6!
