Clues surface suggesting major book character coming to Game of Thrones

Only two episodes remain in season six of Game of Thrones, and it sounds like we've got a major return coming. Episodes nine and ten of this season are respectively called "Battle of the Bastards" and "The Winds of Winter." One of the actors from episode eight, "No One," recently alluded to some major spoilers (there's your warning) on Twitter. Uproxx reports Icelandic actor Jóhannes Haukur, who plays renegade Brotherhood Without Banners member Lem Lemoncloak (one of the baddies who attacked Brother Ray's encampment of poor church-builders), recently tweeted out some potential heavy duty revelations for the series.

Since his character died, it's safe to say Haukur doesn't have to worry about HBO calling him back for more episodes. He recently caught some negative backlash in response to using the B-word in his tweets. Nevertheless, episode eight and Haukur's tweets suggest that we'll finally be seeing the debut of Lady Stoneheart. In George R. R. Martin's book series, A Song of Ice and Fire, Lady Stoneheart is the reanimated corpse of Catelyn Stark. Haukur has been linking lots of articles about the undead matriarch, but he ultimately can't flat out say whether or not she'll be appearing on the show, especially since his character died at the hands of the Hound and the Brotherhood in "No One."

Last episode, we got to see the return of Thoros of Myr and Beric Dondarrion. Thoros is the Lord of Light priest who brought Dondarrion back to life multiple times, even after his big trial by combat loss against the Hound. In the books, Dondarrion gives his life to resurrect Catelyn Stark from the dead. Since it's been so long since she died and Dondarrion's life was so twisted after multiple resurrections, Stark comes back with her injuries unhealed—slashed throat and all. Her character is only able to whisper, but she assumes command of the Brotherhood for the sake of getting revenge on all those who betrayed her family, which includes the Lannisters. We'll just leave this out here: Brienne of Tarth is carrying a sword with a gold Lannister hilt, which Lady Stoneheart wouldn't be happy to see.
