A Familiar Face Might Return From The Dead In ‘Game Of Thrones’ Season 7

[This post is dark and full of potential Game of Thrones spoilers]

Death is not the end on Game of Thrones. Just ask Jon Snow. But he’s a main character, and had a magical red priestess helping him out. The same can’t be said of a certain bad guy who’s rumored to reappear in season seven, which premieres this summer, despite being brutally murdered in season six. Don’t worry, it’s not Hitler, er, Ramsay Bolton. The little birds at Game of Thrones fansite Watchers on the Wall noticed that David Walton, who played Red Wedding orchestrator Walder Frey, updated his acting agency’s resume to “Game of Thrones (Series 1, 2, 6, & 7).” How is that possible? Didn’t he…?

He did. In the season six finale, Arya disguised herself as a servant girl using a mask she stole from the Hall of Faces, and fed Walder Frey his numbskull sons, Black Walder and Lothar, in a pie. She then slit his throat, killing him the same way her mother was murdered. Good times. So, how could Walder Frey possibly return next season? He won’t, technically, but his face might.

As Watchers on the Wall notes, “Though Walder may be dead, at least his face will be present in the new season. With David Bradley present, we can guess that Arya will continue to use her Faceless talents in season seven.” This jives with the alleged season seven leak on Reddit, which claims Arya will finish what she started and “kill all of the remaining Freys.” A Girl wants revenge.
