Beric Dondarrion may have only played a small role in Season 6, but his character started to gain some steam towards the end of the season. Teaming up with The Hound and going on a hanging streak, fans of the book series couldn’t help but think about the similarities between this aspect of the series and the A Song of Ice and Fire book series by George R. R. Martin. Catelyn Stark may have been killed during the Red Wedding, but the book series has Beric Dondarrion bringing her back with The Lord of Light. Reborn as Lady Stoneheart, fans of the book series have been highly anticipating the emergence of this character in the HBO series. In the book, A Feast for Crows, Lady Stoneheart goes on a hanging streak with Beric Dondarrion and his Brotherhood without Banners group. With the onset of Season 7, fans are hoping to finally see this character introduced to the series, and there is no better time to have her appear than when the Stark children are finally starting to make a rise.
14. The Starks Unite
The series started off with the Stark family all together and happy in Winterfell, but they were all separated almost immediately. With Jon Snow leaving to go to The Wall and half of the Stark family heading to King’s Landing, House Stark was dispersed in all different parts of Westeros with fans wondering whether or not they would ever be reunited. With the series starting with all of these characters together, it’s only reasonable that the series would conclude with them back together again. Jon Snow and Sansa have already reunited, and Arya has already made it to The Twins. Bran is starting to head South, so Season 7 should include a few more Stark siblings getting back together. With Jon Snow being proclaimed The King of the North, it’s inevitable that the other Stark children will hear of his new rise to power. This should be more of a reason for all unite against their foes, and House Stark will once again be a force to be reckoned with.
13. Sansa and Littlefinger Unite
Littlefinger has always taken a special interest in Sansa Stark, ever since she first arrived in King’s Landing. Whether it was because she looked so much like her mother or because he was already calculating how he could use her to get himself seated on The Iron Throne, it’s difficult to tell. Yet he let his true feelings known in Season 6, since he told her of his dream of becoming King and her his Queen. Trying to coax her to go behind the back of his bastard brother, Jon Snow, it doesn’t seem like this is the last of Littlefinger’s scheming in regards to Sansa Stark. Fans already know that she has the capability of doing things behind her brother’s back, since she never even told him that she reached out to Littlefinger to bring in the Knights of the Vale during the Battle of Winterfell. Season 7 will most likely contain some sort of manipulation on behalf of Littlefinger, and quite possibly a collaboration with Sansa Stark.
