Brace yourselves — ‘Game of Thrones’ spoilers are ahead. A leaked, alleged preview video has made its way around the internet before the show’s season 5 finale, and it possibly reveals that a major character is returning! Click to WATCH!
The Game of Thrones season 5 finale is likely going to go down as one of the most exciting and shocking in TV history. Just hours before the June 14 finale, an alleged preview video was leaked onto the web that teases the possible return of a character we haven’t seen since season one! Watch and prepare for your jaw to drop to the floor!
And the person is… Benjen Stark! The video that was possibly leaked is the “Previously On” segment shown before each episode. The alleged preview features past clips of Benjen (Joseph Mawle) and Jon Snow (Kit Harington) from season one. If you’ll remember, the last time we saw Benjen was when he headed North of the Wall. He has not been seen or heard of since.
Now this video could be an exquisitely made fan video. Something to get the fans riled up before the finale. However, it could very well be real. The video was allegedly pulled from the website Sky, a German cable company, Vanity Fair reports.
If the video is real, it appears that Benjen maybe did find a way to survive North of the Wall all these years. It wouldn’t really make sense to feature a past scene with Benjen and Jon if Benjen wasn’t coming back at all. If he does return, the fandom is going to go NUTS! The last words Benjen said to Jon were, “We’ll speak when I return.” About what?! We have so many questions!
In addition to this possible epic return, there is one thing that is for sure happening in the finale — Cersei’s nude walk. The sole Lannister sister (Lena Headey) will be shaved completely, stripped naked and forced to walk from the Great Sept of Baelor to the Red Keep. Eugene Simon, who plays Lancel Lannister, dishes on the big, controversial scene.
“It’s one of those scenes that’s so extraordinarily massive when it’s actually put on the screen,” Eugene told Huffington Post. “I saw enough to know the way Cersei falls is cataclysmic. A lot of very big adjectives have to be used to describe a scene that big.”
HollywoodLifers, do you think this leaked video is real? Do you think Benjen Stark is coming back? What are your predictions for the finale? Let us know!
