Make up? I mean, did you read the casting for Ser Arthur Dayne? Looking for a swordsman in his 30's-40's. So its not like they would be trying to make Ned look like he was in his 20's. With make up they could easily make Sean Bean look like he is in his 30's. I mean, maybe him coming back is just wishful thinking, but with the age they are casting (who is assumed to be) Ser Arthur Dayne, and with how Sean Bean has stated multiple times he would love to come back as a flashback, it seems like a distinct possibility. If they cast anyone else as Ned, I think show watchers would be pretty upset.
All that aside, I am with Team Stannis is alive. The only thing that makes me question it is the S05 E10 Beautiful Death poster. So far, all those deaths have been real. Why give Stannis one? If he really is dead, the show made his death quite unceremonious.
agreed. very nice!
binged season 5 over the weekend. Need more dragons.
I agree with someone's assessment before that the Sand Snakes were not used to their full potential, but **SPOILER** I think with their assassination of a certain princess ***END SPOILER*** they will have a bigger role in Season 6. Also Arya's training is going well, and maybe this is just because the season speeds by, but it seemed to me like in the books she takes a long time to get to the level she's at on the show. I picture her as a young adult in the books, while on the show, she's still very much a teenager. My imagination?
Does anyone have any idea when season 6 is coming out?
However, HBO has moved the starting month of their series shows plenty of times before, plus there's a thought that they may delay season 6 to allow GRRM's next book to come out first, so perhaps a June or even later start. Unlikely earlier than April, though.
The Starks find the direwolves in the year 300 AC (Aegons Conquest), Book 5 ended in the year 303 AC....

Well, this pretty much confirms it for me... It looks exactly how I envisioned it while reading the books.

Does anyone watch Preston Jacobs theories on YouTube (regarding the books)? They are very in depth and fun to think about, and regardless if there is a great deal of truth or only a load of tinfoil they are a lot of fun to think about and add a great deal of layer to the books. The detail he goes into is amazing.
