A leaked video showing "Game of Thrones" Season 5 finale has hinted a missing Season 1 character will return.
A video for "Game of Thrones" Season 5 finale has been making its rounds online, showing the return of Benjen Stark, missing since the Season 1's Episode 2.
Fans of HBO's epic miniseries "Game of Thrones" may expect some spoilers from a leaked video of Season 5's finale. The video has been traced to the German Sky's cable company website after it was uploaded on YouTube over the weekend.
While the video has since been taken down from Sky.at, it can still be viewed on YouTube, where it hints at several plot points fans have already been anticipating for the tenth and final episode of Season 5.
The video, which Huffington Post speculates may be fake or fan made, has hinted at the possible return of Benjen Stark, Jon Snow's uncle and Ned Stark's brother, who has been missing since Season 1 Episode 2 when, as the Night Watch's First Ranger, he bade Jon farewell to go on a ranging expedition.
As with the show, Benjen Stark disappeared from George R.R. Martin's books, as well, leading fans to speculate he may have fallen victim to the White Walkers. Rumors also swirled around Benjen Stark was the Coldhands character who led Bran Stark and his companions beyond the Wall, a theory Martin himself has shot down.
Benjen Stark had earlier promised to tell Jon all about his mother upon his return. If the spoiler turns out to be true, and the elder Stark shows up in Season 5's finale, then audiences may expect Jon Snow to finally learn the truth of his parentage, which according to fan theory points toward Rhaegar Targaryen and Lyanna Stark.
The leaked video also presages Cersei Lannister's eventual fall from grace, another chapter of Arya's life in the House of Black and White, while preparing audiences for bigger dragons come Season 6.
