Game of Thrones season 5 left things in a pretty bleak state by the time the credits rolled on the finale. Most of the show’s primary plots were left wide open, with some in particular ending on excruciating cliffhangers and big questions that won’t be answered until George R. R. Martin releases his next novel, The Winds of Winter, or the show returns for its 6th season next spring (whichever comes first). Seeing as how Martin hasn’t set a release date for his long-gestating novel, the only hope Game of Thrones fans have of getting some resolution to the gut-punches of season 5 is to wait for the new season. Nobody other than Martin and showrunners D.B. Weiss and David Benioff truly know what season 6 will have in store, so until then we must rely on rampant, occasionally baseless, speculation. Here are 10 reasonable predictions for what season 6 might have in store.
10. Dorne Will Actually Be Interesting
Part of the buzz surrounding season 5 prior to release was that we would finally get to see the southern kingdom of Dorne. Season 4 was notable for adding several Dornish characters, including the charismatic Prince Oberyn, so naturally it was assumed that Dorne would be just as interesting . Unfortunately, it quickly became apparent that Dorne was a pretty boring place, as the plot had little in the way of payoff or excitement. This is all likely to change in season 6; partly because the writers are likely aware of the criticisms and because the Dornish pretty much incited a war by the end of season 5. That seems like a pretty good recipe for Dorne to not be an utter snoozefest next time around.http://screencrush.com/files/2015/06/GOT510_112414_HS__DSC12611.jpg Source: screencrush.com
