A “Game of Thrones” ("GOT") actress hinted that a character who has long been absent from the HBO series will be making a comeback in Season 6.

Spoiler alert! This article contains “Game of Thrones" spoilers. Read on if you would like to know what happens next before the new episode airs.

During an interview on BBC Radio 1, Maisie Williams, who plays Arya Stark, suggested that Rickon Star (Art Parkinson), may be returning soon.

“Ye…es. Yes? Maybe? … Yes, we will indeed,” Williams answered when she was asked whether Rickon will be part of the new season.

“Oh no, I’m literally going to get off the air and someone’s going to email me,” Williams continued. She joked that showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss may decide to kill off her character after her statements.

Comic Book Resources writes that Rickon Stark is that youngest child in the family who was last seen in Season 3. Rickon was last seen being ushered by Osha to House Umber to be protected.

According to MTV, some fans speculated that Rickon will be the gift to be presented to Ramsay Bolton (Iwan Rheon)in the promo video of Season 6 Episode 3, titled “Oathbreaker.” Rickon may be betrayed by House Umber or captured during a trip.

After Ramsay killed his adoptive father, Roose Bolton (Michael McElhatton), the loyalty of House Umber is expected to change as well. Rickon may be offered to Ramsay as a sign of Umber’s fealty. The sadistic Ramsay can then use the youngest Stark as leverage against Sansa Stark (Sophie Turner) and his other enemies. Sansa may return to Winterfell to save his younger brother, although Ramsay will also expectedly prepare some surprises for her.

Although Rickon will most likely be featured soon, his presence is expected to be short and temporary.

SheKnows states that although his return will be short-lived, he is expected to play a vital role at his age. His appearances in the series has been limited in the past. Considering how “Game of Thrones” can kill off any character, Rickon may be among those who will perish in Season 6, although he will help shape the story before being terminated.

“Game of Thrones” Season 6 Episode 3 will air next on May 8, 2016 on HBO. More updates and details are expected soon.
