Ian McShane Will Resurrect Dead ‘Game of Thrones’ Character for One Episode

Like the similarly popular Walking Dead, Game of Thrones is a show I just can’t get myself hooked on. As a huge Lord of the Rings fan I understand the broad appeal and thought I would love it but I just…don’t care.

HOWEVER. The news in August that Ian McShane (of Deadwood!!!!!!!) was happy tidings, despite probably never watching the show even after he’s appeared in season six. But McShane has started spilling the beans about his role on the show.

“I am responsible for bringing somebody back that you think you’re never going to see again. I’ll leave it at that.”

How very Game of Thrones-y of you, McShane. Everyone on that show is always saying stuff that drives people nuts and then nothing is ever crazy enough for me to hear about later. Except the Red Wedding.

I guess my question is, what dead person could reanimate and turn into Ian McShane? Will season six copy the slick move One Tree Hill made years ago and jump years into the future with McShane playing an old Jon Snow?
