Game of Thrones may be bringing back two characters long thought to have been left for dead and, while the return of Isaac Hempstead-Wright’s Bran Stark may not be a surprise for Game of Thrones fans, another returning favorite might shock fans more than expected. Jason Momoa has been hinting that his own character, Khal Drogo, might be returning to the Game of Thrones saga as well.
Game Of Thrones Will Be Bringing Back Khol Drogo, If Jason Momoa Is To Be Believed
When last we saw Khal, he was being put out of his misery by Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke), after having gone through hell and back at the hands of a rather spiteful and deceitful witch. It was thought that Drogo was gone, never again to be seen on Game of Thrones, but recent Instagram posts from actor Jason Momoa would seem to predict a return of that Game of Thrones character. The posts, two screenshots from the most recent episode of Game of Thrones, shows Daenerys standing up to her Dothraki captors, refusing to accommodate their insistence that she bear children for the tribe.
“My baby holding it down… that’s right baby you tell him!” Momoa captioned one picture, proving that he still stands by his on-screen spouse.
The images show Clarke’s Game of Thrones character defying the Dothraki, declaring that she was “wife to Khal Drogo, son of Khal Bharbo. And I will bear no children, for you, or anyone else.”
What has stirred the hopes of Game of Thrones fans is the way Momoa has captioned the images, adding his own salutation that would seem to imply his return to the series. In the first screenshot, Jason ends the caption by stating, “Miss u see u soon,” implying that he might very well be returning to the sets of Game of Thrones. Adding further fuel to the fire, Momoa ended the caption to the second image with “ALOHA DROGO,” which, in Hawaiian, means hello or goodbye.
Game Of Thrones Actor Isaac Hempstead-Wright On The Return Of Bran Stark
Isaac reveals that Bran will be an entirely new kind of character as he returns to Game of Thrones this season. He says long-time fans of Game of Thrones may already have some idea of what to expect from an older and wiser Bran, particularly if they recall the special talents the character had as a boy. Having grown up, those talents and gifts have become a part of who Bran is as a young man, says Game of Thrones‘ Hempstead-Wright.
“So when he gets there, finally, it’s an opportunity for him to completely immerse himself in this new kind of character,” says the Game of Thrones actor. “He’s got his own calling and his own sense of self, and his own very important place in the world of Westeros.”
Isaac says Bran will be powerful in his own way, but won’t be the ambitious sort of character, eager to make his play for the throne. Instead, Bran will embrace nature and peace, using his abilities to bring stability to the war-torn lands. Hempstead-Wright says Bran may be the key to ending war and bringing a new era to Westeros, which he suggests may tie in with a new direction for Game of Thrones as a whole.
“Game of Thrones has always been this vast, sprawling network of story lines that maybe cross for one second and then shoot off. But this season they’re all starting to look like they’re coming back toward a central focal point and pave the way for epic, epic things,” says Isaac.
Game of Thrones airs tonight on HBO.
