It’s been only one week since Game of Thrones season 5 endedwith lots of character deaths and shocking scenes, but a lot of talk is alreadyfocusing on the next season. Since David Benioff and D. B. Weiss, the show’sexecutive producers and creators, already announced that they aim to finish Game ofThrones’ story in 7 seasons, it’s fair to believe that after a not-so -eventfulseason 5 they will really pick it up in the final two seasons.

At the end of May, news got out that the show had already beguncasting for next season, and a dearth of characters from the books would finally make their debut in the show, like Sam Tarly’s family and Theon Greyjoy’suncle, Euron.

The audience may also get another flashback scene showing theyoung Ned Stark and young Robert Baratheon. So basically the latter means that Brandon Stark’s returnis almost assured after his hiatus in season 5.

The character descriptions include a priestess mysteriously described as a "beautiful, intense, and magnetic" woman in her mid-20’s to early 30’s . Most of the bookreaders already started guessing who this character would be, but after anaudition video surfaced online, we can be near-certain that another priestess of theLight of God, R’hllor, will enter the world of Game of Thrones.

In the video, which has been since then taken down, Englishactress Tehmina Sunny (Argo, Children of Men) reads a scene in which a redpriestess, named Kinvara, visits Meeren’s interim rulers, Tyrion Lannister andVarys. The scene indicates that R’hllor, this most mysterious entity in thebooks and the show, has set his eyes on a new champion, namely DaenerysTargaryen, who fled the city on the back of her black dragon, Drogon.

Of course, a god’s blessing may indeed be a good thing inmost fantasy stories, but the same cannot be said when it comes to R’hllor, as theaudience has witnessed so far since season 2 of Game of Thrones.

Withoutspoiling anything for the non-viewers and non-readers, it's enough to say that there’slots of human sacrifice involved.

Game of Thrones has to spice up a little bit after a quitedisappointing season, especially since the adaptations of Dan Simmon’s Hyperion and NeilGaiman’s American Gods are about to also enter the TV-show realm in the nearfuture. Stay tuned for seasons 5 and 6!
