Us too. Rickon has long lived on the "where the heck is that character" list along with Benjen Stark, Beric Dondarrion and Gendry. The synopsis for the upcoming episode of "Game of Thrones" Season 6 hinted that Ramsay could be bringing terror to the Stark kids once again.
Tonight, in Season 6, Episode 3, Rickon Stark returns to Game of Thrones and he's in hot water nearly immediately. Will he use Rickon to manipulate Sansa into coming back to him?
After killing his father and taking over as Warden of the North, Ramsay Bolton is dealing with the other major Northern houses and catching up on everything going on at Castle Black.
There's but one hope for Rickon's survival here - Jon Snow has officially left Night's Watch, which presumably means he only has one destination in mind, Winterfell.
First is Smalljon Umber, despite swearing allegiance to House Bolton, he did not or at least was not shown to bend the knee to Ramsay.
Could Ramsay's "gift" referred to in this promo be a captive Rickon? However, the two were separated when Bran told Rickon, played by Art Parkinson, to head for North.
Speaking with BBC Radio 1 Thursday, the actress tentatively confirmed that youngest Stark sibling Rickon would be appearing on the hit fantasy drama once again.
However, as shocking as the moment may look, fans aren't so convinced by the head's authenticity. Considering Catelyn Stark believed the wolves to serve as a protective force for her children, it's a pretty worrying sign of what's to come. "Rickon? Who the heck is Rickon?" you might be asking yourself. Arya (Maisie Williams) trains to be No One.
It is easy to miss that kind of detail with so much else going on, but if Rickon made it to the Umbers-and they are now standing behind Ramsay-that should make us all dread the darkness that may be to come for poor young Rickon and his direwolf. They were heading for the Last Hearth.
