5. Ned Stark Returns

Ned Stark

It’s not often that any fandom agrees on something, but do a survey of Game of Thrones viewers, and I’m pretty sure the vast majority don’t want to see Ned Stark return. The character was of course fantastic, and while it would be nice to take at least one dead hero off Sean Bean’s CV, a full blown resurrection for the headless leader of the Stark clan would be a huge mistake.

That doesn’t mean he can’t return in some capacity of course, and regardless of whether Ned returns as a vision or in a flashback which finally provides us with some answers about Jon’s mother, the character coming back with some major revelations during season six is an absolute must, and the more controversial they are, the better.
