Game of Thrones season 6 episode 6: It looks like we will finally get the Tower of Joy reveal: Independent UK

Young Ned Stark returns in Game of Thrones season 6 on Sunday night, and you know what that (probably) means *POTENTIAL SPOILERS AHEAD*.

Actor Robert Aramayo is confirmed to appear in episode 6 ‘Blood of my Blood’ on IMDb, while a recent hometown hero story on him in the Hull Daily Mail confirmed: ‘He will appear again briefly in episode six before another significant showing in episode ten.’

Given the Tower of Joy scene was cut infuriatingly short in episode 3, it stands to reason that the next time we see Young Ned he will actually be inside the tower.

I probably don’t have to tell you how important this is, and how it will probably shape the final season of the show (though there’s an explainer along with secondary theories on it here if you need them).

Fingers crossed episode 6 sees Bran witness his father learning Jon Snow’s true parentage and making his promise to Lyanna, and the episode 10 appearance is related to something else, or comes as Bran manages to get the news to Jon of his true identity.

However, given how brief a look at the Tower of Joy we got in episode 3, it’s possible the show will again cut the flashback off early. This could be down to Bran struggling to control his visions without the assistance of the Three-Eyed Raven, or simply because he is interrupted by pursuing White Walkers.

The trailer for the episode indeed confirms that, despite Hodor’s sacrifice, Bran and Meera won’t be home free yet, and when matched with the original season 6 trailer, it suggests that it is Bran’s uncle Benjen Stark, who we last saw guiding Jon Snow to the Wall seasons ago, coming to their rescue.

Neither the trailer nor the episode synopsis ('An old foe comes back into the picture. Gilly meets Sam’s family. Arya faces a difficult choice. Jaime faces off against the High Sparrow') references the Tower of Joy, but HBO nearly always omits the episodes' biggest moments from these.

Bran’s subplot has become incredibly complicated this season, with the time-travelling elements adding weight to several popular fan theories.
