The sixth season of “Game of Thrones” is about to end. The long-awaited “Battle of the Bastards” is set to play out in next week’s episode. Will Lady Stoneheart be brought in to save the day?
Everyone has been gearing up for the upcoming Battle all season long. Jon Snow and Ramsay Bolton are finally going to face off to decide the fate of the North once and for all. Ramsay is the current Warden of the North. He wants to keep ruling over Winterfell. Jon, on the other hand, wants to take it back for the Starks. But Jon’s army is hugely outnumbered. Could the resurrected version of the Stark matriarch step in to ensure their win?
According to Collider, Lady Stoneheart might still make an appearance before the series ends. Last week’s episode “No One” reintroduced the Brotherhood Without Banners. Beric Dondarrion and Thoros of Myr showed up once again after two seasons of absence.
Dondarrion said they are headed North because “cold winds are rising” there. He talked of a “great evil” they need to face off with. Collider thinks they might have another reason to make that trip. Everyone assumes he was talking the White Walkers and their army of the dead. But could he have been referring to Ramsay as well? Could the Brotherhood be heading north to help Jon Snow’s offensive? Could Lady Stoneheart have been working in the background all this time? Could she have rallied the Brotherhood to her cause? Collider thinks it might possible. But this has yet to be confirmed.
MTV did point out that there might be a problem with this theory. “If Lord Beric Dondarrion is alive, then there’s no Lady Stoneheart. Plain and simple,” MTV said. In the books, Catelyn was resurrected as Lady Stoneheart after Dondarrion gave up his life for hers.
