Game of Thrones is coming. And the closer fans get to April – when the first episode of the sixth season comes out – the more theories and assumptions arise around the web, according to The Week.
For example, Tyrion is believed to be a Targaryen. The theory claims that Tyrion, portrayed by Peter Dinklage in Game of Thrones, is not the son of Tywin Lannister. Instead, he is the son of the Mad King Aerys II Targaryen, who had slept with Joanna Lannister.

Another Game of Thrones theory claims that Sandor “The Hound” Clegane could appear in season six despite the fact that he seemingly died at the hands of Brienne. Instead, The Hound could be living as a monk on the Quiet Isle. The theory also claims that Septon Meribald actually saved The Hound from the death.
Ian McShane, who is set to appear in season six, revealed that his mystery character is going to bring back an “unexpected character,” who is believed to be The Hound, according to The Week.

Another theory involving The Hound has some Game of Thrones theorists wondering if his brother Gregor “The Mountain” Clegane and The Hound will have a battle to the death. Fans also suggest that the brothers could face one another in a trail by combat: The Hound could represent the Faith of the Seven, while The Mountain would fight for Cersei.
There are also theories that there could be a second red wedding in Game of Thrones, a repeat of the marriage massacre that killed Robb Stark and his mother Lady Catelyn. It is believed that Lady Stoneheart (formerly Lady Catelyn Stark) would appear in season six and use Jaime Lannister to slip into a second Lannister wedding and avenge for the death of Robb Stark.
If you’ve ever googled Jon Snow, portrayed by Kit Harington, and Game of Thrones, you probably know that there are speculations that the character could appear in season six despite his death in season five, according to E! Online.
Another crucial piece of evidence has recently emerged on Instagram that claims Jon Snow could get “resurrected” in Game of Thrones season six. The Instagram picture was taken at the show’s wrap party, which included Kit Harrington himself.
However, it doesn’t add up since Kit Harrington said in an interview with Entertainment Weekly after wrapping up the season five of Game of Thrones, at the end of which his character died, that Jon Snow “is dead, he is done,” according to E! Online.
Film School Rejects confirmed a list of three Game of Thrones characters that appeared in the latest installment of Star Wars: The Force Awakens. The first one is Thomas Brodie-Sangster, who portrayed Jojen Reed, is titled as a First Order officer in Star Wars.
The First Order officer is sitting behind consoles in the background while Adam Driver’s Kylo Ren and Domnhall Gleeson’s General Hux are conducting very serious business on screen. Brodie-Sangster’s character says only one line: “We have an unsanctioned departure from bay two,” which he says at the beginning of the movie. So, Game of Thrones fans, keep your eyes open if you want to see a familiar face.

Jessica Henwick is another familiar face from Game of Thrones, who portrays Nymeria Sand in the fifth season. To not give away any spoilers, her Star Wars character appears closer to the middle of the movie as a Resistance X-Wing pilot.
However, her character in Star Wars appears for only about 10 seconds on screen in total, and says only one sentence of dialogue.
And last but not least, Gwendoline Christie, who portrays the warrior Brienne of Tarth in Game of Thrones. The actress appears as Captain Phasma in the latest installment of Star Wars as described by Film School Rejects.
