A flashback scene of Hodor will be featured in “Game of Thrones” Season 6, according to a new report. The next season will also focus on how the Tyrell’s will react to some of the events in King’s Landing.
Olenna (Diana Rigg) will confront her son Mace Tyrell (Roger Ashton-Griffiths) in one of the scenes in the next season, WatchersOnTheWall reported. The Queen of Thorns will be angry with the Mace for not doing anything about Loras (Finn Jones) and Margaery (Natalie Dormer) being kept in prison by the High Sparrow (Jonathan Pryce).
Mace will be returning to Westeros in the next season, after his mission in Braavos to negotiate with the Iron Bank on loan terms is completed. The House Tyrell will now reportedly order their soldiers to travel to King’s Landing in order to safeguard their interests.
The report also stated that there will be a flashback scene of the Stark family as the next season will reveal the origin story of Hodor (Kristian Nairn). The report said that the producers have already cast an actor to play a young Ned Stark (Sean Bean) for “Game of Thrones” Season 6.
In a previous interview to TheHuffingtonPost, Nairn talked about a fan theory about Hodor being an agent of the White Walkers or is somehow related to them. The actor suspected that his character may have been traumatized after seeing something in the crypt of Winterfell. He also believed that it is possible that Hodor could be connected to the White Walkers and may be a big part of the plot when winter finally arrives.
According to Nairn, the name Hodor may mean something to the White Walkers. His personal hope, however, is that the name Hodor could be connected to dragons and he wants to see his character control a dragon using the word Hodor.
The Watchers On The Wall report also stated that rumors about Ian McShane playing either Randyll Tarly or Aeron Greyjoy in “Game of Thrones” Season 6 are not true. The actor is said to be having a scene with a group of outlaws in the next season and he is expected to have very little screen time.
