You can run, hide, avoid and close as many tabs as you want, but you just can't escape the numerous Game of Thrones spoilers and theories circulating on the web even weeks after the show's last season ended.
Warning: Game of Thrones Potential Spoilers Below:
As per latest rumours, Ned Stark – the patriarch of the unfortunate Stark family – who was beheaded in Season 1, might be seen again in Season 5 flashback scenes.
Actor Sean Bean, who played Ned, recently spoke with Vulture, and was asked whether Bran's possible connection with heart trees could mean a Ned flashback cameo in Season 5.
"Oh, yeah, yeah! And I'm his father, so that would be great fun! Just to go back to that for a while, it would be such fun to do", the actor said. "It would be bizarre, but it would be great! So I guess if they're going to do flashbacks, then yeah!"
Bean also went on to reveal a massive spoiler regarding Jon Snow's parentage:
"I've definitely got some unfinished business that needs to be resolved there. I'm obviously not Jon Snow's dad. And you need that to be revealed at some point, don't you?" added Bean.
"So Bran would kind of be the one having the flashback, and he would see Ned praying, right? And revealing those things? You never know what those guys are going to do with that. It's got to be something special. But I'm into that. I certainly would be into that," he said.
Game of Thrones' narrative has not had any flashback scenes as yet but that might change in Season 5 as the makers have already revealed that they plan to digress a bit from the books.
This also opens the possibility of Season 4's popular character Prince Oberyn Martell returning to the show by featuring in flashback episodes. Now, wouldn't that be something Oberyn fans would love.
The Season 5 of Game of Thrones will be extensively shot in Spain, which will be shown as Dorne. The season will also have new characters (of House Martell), including The Sand Snakes - Oberyn Martell's bastard daughters. With key plot lines and characters so close to The Red Viper, it might not be unwarranted to assume that the beloved character might pop up, even if it's just a cameo.
