WARNING: Spoilers for Game of Thrones! You've been warned.

In an interview with BBC Radio 1, Game of Thrones star Maisie Williams (Arya Stark) revealed that a character most of us had forgotten about will be making a return during this season.

Here's what she had to say to the interviewer when asked if we'd be hearing from her long-lost television brother Rickon Stark in Season 6:

"Yes, we will indeed... Oh no, I'm literally going to get off the air and someone's going to email me!"

We last saw Rickon in the infamous episode “The Rains of Castamere” — the Red Wedding — in Season 3, when the wildling Osha was escorting him and Shaggydog to House Umber in Last Hearth under the orders of Bran.

Art Parkinson, who played Rickon in the show, was seen in Belfast, Ireland with Game of Thrones cast members around the time that Season 6 was filming. In the latest episode, Theon also recalled our memories to the event that sent Rickon on the run in the first place — when he stormed Winterfell and claimed he had killed the Stark children. Combined with Williams' slip of the tongue, it sounds like we can indeed expect to see the youngest Stark back in action soon.

So what's Rickon been up to? Is Shaggydog still adorable? And where in the Seven Hells is Gendry?
