We all knew “Winter is Coming,” so it makes sense in Game of Thrones Season 6 that the Starks, who have been prepping for Winter FOREVER, will finally get some wins!
The Starks have never exactly fared well on Game of Thrones. Ned was beheaded. Theon betrayed them. Ramsey burnt down Winterfell. Cat and Robb and Robb’s pregnant wife and the Stark army were all brutally slaughtered at the Red Wedding. Sansa was raped. Jon was stabbed to death by the Brothers of the Night’s Watch, and left to bleed out in the snow. Not to mention, Sansa’s dead direwolf, Robb’s dead direwolf, Arya going blind, Bran being crippled, and all of the Stark children being scattered across multiple continents. It sounds even bleaker when you lay it all out like that.
But fear not (or at least fear less), the Starks may be due for a comeback in Season 6. The last book of A Song of Ice and Fire was going to be titled A Time for Wolves, the title has been changed to A Dream of Spring to avoid possible title spoilers like The Return of the King. Since the direwolf is the sigil of House Stark it seems like the Starks could be on the rise. Maybe it starts now, fingers crossed.
