It's been a particularly trying off-season for Game of Thrones fans, since the show's producers haven't released nearly as many details as they have in years past. The show eschewed a longtime tradition of revealing the full cast for the upcoming episodes at Comic Con, although we have been getting a number of casting reports and set photos as filming continues on Season 6. Since the show has caught up with George R.R. Martin's books, there isn't much we do know about the season. Last week, new cast member Elie Haddad shared a photo on Instagram that featured a page from an upcoming episode's script, which reveals new details from Game of Thrones Season 6. There will be potential SPOILERS below, so read on at your own risk.
While we don't know what role Elie Haddad is playing, the scene shown on his script page features dialogue between two Dothraki soldiers. At the very end of Game of Thrones Season 5, Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) was surrounded by a horde of Dothraki soldiers. While we don't know what happens directly after she becomes surrounded, this scene features these two unidentified Dothraki characters uttering crude remarks about the "Khaleesi," including 'I bet she gets nice and pink when you pinch her.' One of them then says, "I'd like to know what a Khaleesi tastes like," to which another character replies, "Good. You can suck my d--k."
Watchers on the Wall reports that the word "khal" is also seen in the scene descriptions, and the word "Missandei" was also spotted. Missandei, played by Nathalie Emmanuel, is one of Dany's advisers. In the ninth Season 5 episode, The Dance of Dragons, Dany was surrounded by The Sons of the Harpy, when her missing dragon, Drogon, finally returned, as she escaped certain death by riding on the back of her dragon. In doing so, she left Jorah Mormont (Iain Glen), Tyrion Lanister (Peter Dinklage) and Missandei behind in Meereen.
With Missandei's appearance in this script, it seems clear that she may have reunited with Daenerys, but it isn't clear if Jorah and Tyrion Lannister are present in these scenes as well. Since these soldiers referred to Daenerys as Khaleesi, it's possible that she may be ruling a new Dothraki army, but we don't know for sure. It isn't known what episode this script is for, or how far into this upcoming season this episode takes place. We do know, however, that this season will also bring back a slew of characters who haven't been seen in quite some time. Bran Stark (Isaac Hempstead-Wright) is returning back after a one-season break. Brynden Tully, a.k.a. The Blackfish (Clive Russell), who hasn't been seen since the Red Wedding at the end of Season 3, is also returning, along with Gemma Whelan as Theon Greyjoy's sister Yara.
New characters include Ian McShane in an unspecified role, Pilou Asbæk, who has been rumored to be playing Euron Greyjoy, the uncle of Alfie Allen's Theon Greyjoy and Max von Sydow as the Three-Eyed Raven. Richard E. Grant and Essie Davis are portraying members of a theater troupe who are putting on a play about famous figures in Westeros, with James Faulkner, Samantha Spiro and Rebecca Benson portraying the father, mother and sister of Samwell Tarly (John Bradley).
