Spoiler, spoiler, spoiler alert! If you’re not into ’em, don’t read ’em! And that means this entire post in particular, all you Game of Thrones fans. Because we’ve got some potential, hypothetical, possibly-maybe spoilers about to run amok on this page in regards to the upcoming fifth season. So if yours is a preference of blissful naïveté then kindly get the heck out of here before you ruin it for yourself, OK?
Now that we’ve got that nonsense settled (trust: we hate it as much as you, but Internet, so!)…
Word on the street is that a certain Faceless Man from season two may be making his return to the HBO series in season five — at least if an accidental slippery comment from a talent agent for Tom Wlaschiha is to be believed. According to SpoilerTV, the actor who portrayed Jaqen H’ghar, the Faceless Man of Braavos Arya previously encountered on her journey to The Wall, is set to reappear on the series, bringing the next chapter of the wee Stark serial murderperson to a start.
We’ve included the blurb in full:
“According to the German agency of Tom Wlaschiha, the actor is shooting a 2014 episode of the crime solving series Tatort entitled, ‘Borowski und die armen Kinder von Gaarden,’ and after that, in August, he’ll begin filming on Game of Thrones. The agency notes that Tom is in the main cast.”
If that’s the case, then this is yet another instance of the series deviating from the books in a way that’s sure to twist some A Song of Ice and Fire fan’s underoos into quite a bunch. We, on the other hand, are sort of excited if the rumor turns out to be true. We were a big fan of the Faceless Man’s original, well, face and wouldn’t hate them consolidating characters from her new journey into one that’s a bit more familiar.
What do you think of the news? Let’s hear it in the comments.
