Game of Thrones Actress Reveals MAJOR Season 5 Spoiler

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Last month, actress Lena Headey posted a Game of Thrones spoiler on her Instagram page that left many fans irate.

Now, it turns out all that rage may have been for nothing as another GoT star made a contradictory reveal during a recent interview (spoilers lie ahead):

Michelle Fairley played Catelyn Stark for three seasons, until her character was offed during the famous Red Wedding scene.

In George R.R. Martin's books upon which GoT is based, Catelyn returns to the land of the living as Lady Stoneheart - a mute zombie-like creature hell-bent on avenging her departed family members.

Fans had hoped the badass undead Lady Stark would make her first appearance at the end of season four. When that didn't happen many felt certain the GoT showrunners would reveal the character early in the fifth season.

In a recent interview, however, Fairley basically crushed fans' hopes of ever getting to see one of the most screwed-over characters in TV history finally enjoy her much-deserved revenge:

"The character's dead. She's dead," Fairley told Entertainment Weekly. "You have to respect the writers' decision. They can't stick to the books 100 percent."

"They only have 10 hours per season and extraneous stuff gets lost along the way. 

Well, Fairley may have to "respect the writers' decision," but that doesn't mean we have to! This second death of Lady Stark has us feeling like the GoT showrunners pulled a Walder Frey-Roose Bolton style betrayal on us.

Oh, well. We're sure we'll forgive them in time for next season.

To relive the Red Wedding or any of your favorite GoT moments, watch Game of Thrones online at TV Fanatic.

and why should it matter if Michelle Fairly doesn't reprise the role? Apparently Lady Stoneheart doesn't even look the same so they could use someone else.


Obviously, "she's dead" does not mean Lady Stoneheart won't be appearing. It could mean that the character Lady Stoneheart is, literally, dead. Which she is. Duh.
