How ‘Game Of Thrones’ Brandon Stark Could Bring Ned And Prince Oberyn Back To Season 5


The only thing more prolific than “Game of Thrones” pirating, is “Game of Thrones” theories.  So, Highlight Hollywood will offer you the latest.  After the horrific death of Lord of Winterfell Ned Stark, who was the patriarch of the unfortunate Stark family, fans have been talking about Sean Bean’s performance and losing the character in the first season for four years now.

Actor Sean Bean, who played Ned, recently spoke with Vulture, and was asked whether Bran’s possible connection with heart trees could mean a Ned flashback cameo in Season 5.  “Oh, yeah, yeah! And I’m his father, so that would be great fun! Just to go back to that for a while, it would be such fun to do”, the actor said. “It would be bizarre, but it would be great! So I guess if they’re going to do flashbacks, then yeah!”
Bean also went on to reveal a massive spoiler regarding Jon Snow’s parentage, “I’ve definitely got some unfinished business that needs to be resolved there. I’m obviously not Jon Snow’s dad. And you need that to be revealed at some point, don’t you?” added Bean.
“So Bran would kind of be the one having the flashback, and he would see Ned praying, right? And revealing those things? You never know what those guys are going to do with that. It’s got to be something special. But I’m into that. I certainly would be into that,” he said.

The Season 5 of Game of Thrones will be extensively shot in Spain, which will be shown as Dorne. The season will also have new characters (of House Martell), including The Sand Snakes – Oberyn Martell’s bastard daughters. With key plot lines and characters so close to The Red Viper, it might not be unwarranted to assume that the beloved character might pop up, even if it’s just a cameo.
Bran was told in the season four finale last month, titled “The Children” by the Three-Eyed-Raven, “You will never walk again, Brandon Stark. But you will fly.” Bran’s warging powers will enable him to travel the present, anywhere around the world, and most importantly Westeros, and also to the future and luckily for us, the past.  So, we could learn a lot from Ned Stark in flashbacks, as well as the intimate love that Prince Oberyn had for his eight daughter, ready for vengeance after the Red Viper was killed by The Mountain.

It's so lousy they'll reveal GRRM's not hidden secret before he does in the books. Seriously, fuck them and their fanfic.
leperheart 26th-Jul-2014 11:09 pm (UTC)
You can't really reveal something that's been plastered all over the internet for years.
patoplastico 26th-Jul-2014 11:12 pm (UTC)
yes, as a logical fan theory. Not the same as confirmation.
sustainablefuel 26th-Jul-2014 11:15 pm (UTC)
It's so lame tho, there are better things to get mad over tbh.
norringtons 26th-Jul-2014 11:07 pm (UTC)
seeing ned again would actually make me really happy. idgaf, i still miss sean bean. he was one of the few that could actually act.
smolderhotter 26th-Jul-2014 11:08 pm (UTC)
why does sean bean always have to die in movies and shows like duuuuuuuuuudeeee

I liked Ned, idgaf, he was a good person.
shift_from_here 26th-Jul-2014 11:19 pm (UTC)
He's in a new series on TNT.
smolderhotter 26th-Jul-2014 11:30 pm (UTC)
will he die there too?
shift_from_here 26th-Jul-2014 11:43 pm (UTC)
It would be funny, but I don't think so. Here

Ned is fucking awesome, fuck the game
littlehayzay 26th-Jul-2014 11:09 pm (UTC)
When actors refer to themselves as their characters, it's always a little off-putting to me.
truth_and_facts 27th-Jul-2014 11:44 pm (UTC)
Super duper late but YES!!! That shit is so irritating and quite frankly seems amateurish to me.
littlehayzay 27th-Jul-2014 11:49 pm (UTC)
I've actually noticed that the only people I've really heard do that are actors that I already didn't like.
kiwibutter 26th-Jul-2014 11:09 pm (UTC)
I can't with these Hollywood websites casualizing and sensationalizing a concept that's a lot more complex than they give credit for. They read that one interview of GRRM subtly mentioning the weirwood.net and they were like "OMG NED'S COMING BACK FROM THE GRAVE, BRB WRITING AN ARTICLE FOR COLLEGE KIDS TO SHARE ON FACEBOOK."

Like, no, Ned Stark isn't coming back. I don't know why the fuck Oberyn was in the headline because he doesn't have any more use in the story or any relevance to the Old Gods. And how insensitive do you have to be to spoil two big character deaths in one headline? Not everyone is up-to-date with the show.
agatharuncible 27th-Jul-2014 06:55 pm (UTC)
ia with most of this... sure, ned can come back in flashbacks but why the fuck would bran have flashbacks about oberyn?

as to the spoilers, lol. just lol. considering all the hype surrounding ned's death in the show a few years ago, I think most people will have at least heard of his death. oberyn's death got a bit less hype but it was still all over the place.
redwings 26th-Jul-2014 11:16 pm (UTC)
lol like this show cares enough to use bran tho
galaxized 26th-Jul-2014 11:16 pm (UTC)
it won't happen because d&d get off to robbing fans of any joy
carverhawke 26th-Jul-2014 11:24 pm (UTC)
i'm not even excited for this season after the arianne news
soul_amazinn 27th-Jul-2014 12:15 am (UTC)
What news?
hocus_pocus 27th-Jul-2014 12:42 am (UTC)
she's been cut (along with quentyn presumably) and her heir status has been given to trystane

RIP sun princess and frog faced prince
agatharuncible 27th-Jul-2014 06:55 pm (UTC)
what the actual fuck

do you have a link or something omg
carverhawke 27th-Jul-2014 12:43 am (UTC)
apparently they're omitting her from the season and making her brother the heir to sunspear instead
erised_mirror 27th-Jul-2014 01:46 am (UTC)
me too. I haven't even gotten to that part in the books yet but imo it's just so wrong to cut the only possible female heir in the story and replace it with yet another white dude.

Don't even know is Tystane is supposed to be white or not, lbr probably not, still don't care, I'm pissed. This show has taken a regrettable turn. Season 1 was so good :(
agatharuncible 27th-Jul-2014 06:57 pm (UTC)
no, he isn't. if he's arianne's brother he'd be as white as she is and it's pretty obvious she isn't. idk what the ethnicity of the actor playing him is.
pigeon_poop 26th-Jul-2014 11:26 pm (UTC)
i swear the only people who get pissy about GoT are ONTD users
kimoto 27th-Jul-2014 12:30 am (UTC)
Nah you forget most of the book readers.
piratesswoop 27th-Jul-2014 01:41 am (UTC)
lol have you never been to westeros.org?
punkylana 27th-Jul-2014 05:04 pm (UTC)
lol not really
nanacon 26th-Jul-2014 11:26 pm (UTC)
Don't even care. Though I'm really enjoying Bran's chapters in Dance with Dragons. I'm super intrigued with Brynden Rivers. I want to read more about his life and why he's hanging with the children of the forest! What happened between his time at the wall and 'now'? I need to knooooooww!
slaughtermatic 26th-Jul-2014 11:31 pm (UTC)
less this more how Brandon Stark could snatch that throne from lesser bitches already
ke77we 27th-Jul-2014 12:41 am (UTC)
I'm just here for some Harrenhaal flashbacks, Lyanna/Rhaegar, and giving cutie pie Isaac something to do. He's a really good actor when given the material.
by_venoms_sting 27th-Jul-2014 12:41 am (UTC)
I was so confused about the title of this post until I relized they were talking about bb Bran and not Ned's older brother.
roguezombie 27th-Jul-2014 12:45 am (UTC)
Same. I was excited for a split second when I thought they might do a flashback to the tourney at harrenhal.
erised_mirror 27th-Jul-2014 01:48 am (UTC)
lmao SAME! I'm just so used to one being Brandon and the other just Bran.
nicenicegirl 27th-Jul-2014 01:57 am (UTC)
i really wouldn't mind flashbacks i'd rather they do scenes like that than throwing in all of the random sex scenes. altho i'm sure they'd manage to show a flashback sex scene.
hateistoodark 27th-Jul-2014 02:05 am (UTC)
Show us Viserys too
