As viewer anticipation continues to amp up for the season six premiere of the ever popular fantasy drama series Game of Thrones, many fans who have watched the show religiously on HBO, and perhaps read all five of the completed novels by George R.R. Martin, have been left pondering just where show-runners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss plan to take their series in the absence of a sixth novel from Martin. Furthermore, many viewers might be a little perplexed regarding the fate of Jon Snow after the first teaser trailer dropped for the new season, and raised further questions about one climactic moment from last year in particular.
Thankfully, the cast and crew of the series is always on hand to discuss just where viewers can expect to find their characters next, and Natalie Dormer, who plays the always alluring Margaery Tyrell on the show, just may have nodded towards where her recently imprisoned queen might find herself very soon.
As featured in the video seen above, Dormer was relatively forthcoming on a recent late night appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, where she revealed that she had spending quiet a bit of time in certain dungeons in Spain while filming her parts of the next season of the show. Unfortunately, the actress was unable to divulge any further information regarding the ultimate status of fellow cast-member Kit Harington’s Jon Snow, as Dormer claims she only ever reads the portions of each script directly involving Margaery Tyrell.
Potentially, shooting Dormer’s scenes in a locale as exotic as Spain might suggest that viewers will find Margaery imprisoned in Dorne later this April, something that would suggest that the longstanding rivalry between the Lannisters and the Martells is far from over, and will be once again be prominently featured in Game of Thrones‘ season six overarching storyline. As for Jon Snow, it would appear as though Dormer knows just as much as any of us, leaving his life in the balance of the series’ scripted fate for now.
It would be intriguing to see Margaery overcome imprisonment, and perhaps form some kind of allegiance with the Martells of Dorne, though it is of an equal possibility that Dormer’s character may soon languish and die in her foretold Spanish dungeon. But wherever Dormer and the rest of the cast and crew of the fantasy franchise end up, it would appear as though showrunners Benioff and Weiss will be in charge of how the characters get to wherever they’re going – as the original A Song of Ice and Fire novel series’ author George R.R. Martin continues to become distracted in the writing of those books.
Game of Thrones season 6 will premiere on HBO in April 2016.
