Maisie Williams, about the only Game of Thrones cast member willing to throw caution into HBO’s ‘DON’T TALK ABOUT SPOILERS!’ wind, has revealed that the youngest Stark, Rickon, will feature later in season 6.

Asked if we would hear from him in this batch of episodes during a Radio 1 interview, she said: “Yes, we will indeed... Oh no, I’m literally going to get off the air and someone’s going to email me!”

If you’ve forgotten who Rickon is, he was the Stark boy who Bran asked wildling Osha to keep safe with House Umber while he went off on his dangerous warning journey (sleeping in a tree is dangerous, okay).

it’s already been theorised that we will see Rickon in the very next episode - ‘Oathbreaker’ - which, in the trailer, sees two representatives of the Umbers bring Ramsay Bolton a “gift” (very possibly Rickon).

And just when we thought all of the Starks were finally out of immediate peril.

What's less clear is who the 'Oathbreaker' in the episode will be. You can read about the candidates here.

The element of the episode fans are most excited about however is the teased Tower of Joy flashback, the consequences of which could be huge for the show and its eventual ending.
