Take this one with a grain of internet salt but over at the IMDB page for Game of Thrones season 2 we’ve noticed something exciting and terrifying. Terrifyingly awesome, that is! Listed under the credits for Game of Thrones season 2, Episode 10 we see none other than the name of actor Sean Bean who plays Eddard Stark, warden of the North, father to heroes and beloved lord of Westeros. Take a look for yourself:
This could be one of many things: an IMDB editor messing with us, a simple clerical error or it could indeed be confirmation of a guest appearance by Sean Bean on Game of Thrones season 2! We’d already speculated that he’d return this season in the form of a flashback, dream or some other “non-living” version of himself. We hope these rumors are true, honestly and it would make a lot of sense for him to return not once, but every season as far as we’re concerned! The novels actually portray vivid flashbacks to previous wars and hallucinogenic visions/dreams that include Eddard Stark so it would be simple, and true to the novels to include him in season 2.
Sean Bean is Coming. It’s only a matter of when.
