'Game of Thrones' Producer Talks Shocking Character Return (Spoilers!)

SPOILER ALERT! Don’t continue reading if you don’t want to know what happens on tonight’s episode of Game of Thrones.

A shocking reveal came during the Sunday (May 29) episode of Game of Thrones! Benjen Stark (Joseph Mawle) made his first appearance on the show since the pilot episode. You may remember, the character vanished after wandering North of the Wall.

“It’s hard for me to talk about Benjen’s return without getting into the nitty gritty of the adaptation process. But, yeah, season 6 is rife with Stark reunions! That’s another thing that’s been very heartening to track with the fans. The show is so sprawling and there are so many threads, but, at it’s heart it’s largely about this good family that was torn apart. So seeing some of them connect again (Jon, Sansa), (Benjen, Bran) was very satisfying to write and to shoot. And it was great to have Joe Mawle back with us – it must have been a trip for him to step back into the character after so long – but he’s also decidedly not the Benjen of season 1, so that was fun to explore,” co-executive producer Bryan Cogman told EW.

Game of Thrones' Hodor & Bran Eat Cake Together After 'Hold the Door' Episode

It looks like there’s no bad blood between actors Kristian Nairn (Hodor) and Isaac Hempstead-Wright (Bran) from Game of Thrones after the twist between their characters in last week’s episode.

In fact, the pair enjoyed a door shaped cake after the now-famous “Hold the Door” episode.

“Even after all he’s done to poor hodor. I’m still sharing my cake with @Isaac_H_Wright #love #gameofthrones,” Kristian wrote on his Twitter account.

“Even though Hodor may be gone, @KristianNairn isn’t getting away from me that easy… #HoldTheDoor #GameofThrones,” Isaac tweeted, along with his own photo. See them below!

Game of Thrones' Jon Snow Spinoff Rumors Not True

Kit Harington has not been approached about a Jon Snow spinoff after Game of Thrones, EW reports.

Many outlets began reporting that a spinoff was in the works, but the rumor has since been debunked.

“If that were to happen it would have to come from [showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss] really feeling something, or [author George R.R. Martin] really feeling that it was the right thing to do,” HBO’s Michael Lombardo said last month about the possibility of a spinoff with one of the characters one day. “Not knowing how this particular story ends, I don’t know. There are plenty of characters, secondary characters, [who] you could build a world around. We’re always going to be drawn to a strong creative vision. But we are not going to do that unless we feel their passion.”

Celebrities React to Game of Thrones' 'Hold the Door' Moment - Read the Tweets!

SPOILER ALERT! Don’t continue reading if you don’t want to know what happened on tonight’s episode of Game of Thrones.

On the Sunday (May 22) episode of Game of Thrones, we learned about Bran Stark’s psychic abilities that transformed teenager Willis into Hodor, the mentally disabled man he knows in the present day.

As Bran, Hodor and Meera are running away from the undead monsters and head through a secret door, Meera screams “Hold the door!” Hodor complies, and holds the door. Bran, however, is still mentally in the past, hears the phrase and wargs into Willis. Willis can be seen convulsing and repeating “Hold the door! Hold the door! Hold the door!”

Since the episode aired, celebrities have been tweeting about the chilling phrase.

Emilia Clarke Talks About THAT Fiery 'Game of Thrones' Scene

Emilia Clarke is opening up about stripping down and showing off her body in the latest episode of her hit show Game of Thrones.

SPOILER ALERT – Daenerys Targaryen escaped from the Dothraki captors and showed everyone who’s boss by emerging from an epic fire without wearing any clothes.

“It’s so exciting, very tingly-making. Every season I get at least one spine-chilling moment. I just stand up and I go, ‘I’m hearing what you’re all saying, but funny thing, I’m going to kill you all. I forgot that I have an ace in my back pocket and now I win,’” Emilia told Entertainment Weekly about the scene.

“I’d like to remind people the last time I took my clothes off was season 3,” she said. “That was awhile ago. It’s now season 6. But this is all me, all proud, all strong. I’m just feeling genuinely happy I said ‘Yes.’ That ain’t no body double!”

“Taking off my clothes is not the easiest thing, but with the magic of the effects, I don’t have to do a season 1 and go on a cliff and do it,” she added. “I’m in control of it.”

Sophie Turner Talks About That Big 'Game of Thrones' Reunion (Spoilers)

SPOILER ALERT! Don’t continue reading if you don’t want to know what happened on tonight’s Game of Thrones.

The latest episode of Game of Thrones wrapped up on HBO just a few minutes ago and Sophie Turner is speaking about that emotional Stark reunion between Sansa and Jon Snow (Kit Harington).

If you didn’t know, Sansa and Jon have not been in a scene together in years, since the very first episode.

“It’s such an emotional moment,” Sophie told EW. “She finally made it to Castle Black. And there’s this look where they’re just studying each other’s faces, with no expression. Then there’s this long embrace. It’s just awesome.”

“I’m most excited for the fact I get to see Kit and get to act with him,” Sophie said about filming season six. “Kit is one of my best mates and we had just one scene together in the pilot, where we’re waiting on the king. It’s like working with an older brother. I’ve watched his work over the past four years and I think he’s amazing. He’s so focused and dedicated.”

“People can kind of assume that Sansa’s very much like her mother and her mother wasn’t very fond of Jon,” Sophie added. “But Sansa is also different from her mother so she tries her best. She’s been through so much…She knows Jon is her older brother and Davos is older and wiser, but she’s probably been through more than both of them. She’s not just going to go along with other people’s decisions.”

'Game of Thrones' Author George R.R. Martin Offers 6th Book Status Update & New Excerpt!

George R.R. Martin just released a new sample from his upcoming book The Winds of Winter, which is the sixth book in the Game of Thrones seven book series!

HBO’s hit series had been modeled after each of the five previous books for the first several seasons, but this current season is the first that is actually ahead of the book series, as the sixth book has no set release date.

To those fans who believe the sample indicates the book will be out soon, George has a message: “And no, just to spike any bullsh*t rumors, changing the sample chapter does NOT mean I am done…Monkey is still on my back…but he’s growing, he is, and one day…”

The 6th season of Game of Thrones is currently airing on HBO every Sunday evening.
