      • Then why did you write it! I’ve read the books but a lot of peopel haven’t. This is just rude.

    • She won’t come back until the fourth season finale, she’s got plenty of time to work on other roles.

      • Maybe…maybe not, chronologically Lady Stoneheart awakens only a few days following the Red Wedding, we may see her in the final scene.

        • SPOILERS BELOW – MINOR IF YOU’VE READ THE ABOVE POSTS, MAJOR IF YOU HAVEN’T

          We’ll probably see her right away. They will want to bring Thoros and Beric back, actor-wise, while they still know they can, instead of waiting until next season when the actors may be involved in other things. They’ll probably use that as the cliffhanger this season, and bring her back (cast-wise) with the other Brotherhood mid next season if possible, once Davos gets Gendry back to them (which is my prediction, because it looks like Gendry will take over the role of Edric Storm).

  • “Daniel Hardman sends his regards,” said Louis before proceeding to slit Harvey’s throat.

  • First Varys and now Lady Stark. Someone on Suits must love Game of Thrones.

  • So she’s playing a cutthroat businesswoman…

  • She is the most underrated actress on Game of Thrones. I didn’t believe she would make a good Catelyn as a book-reader, but boy was I wrong. She has been so good and I am happy Ms. Fairley has something else lined up after last episodes.

    • I agree with this. Her acting blew my mind every time and most especially on the last episode. Her acting alone for me, made the Red Wedding feel like a punch in the gut, and I already knew what was going to happen since I read the books.

  • Her character might be killed off…..but……..looks like Game of Thrones may have a few surprises coming and I guarantee there is a chance she will be……Wink wink.
