Winter is coming and, after that, "Game of Thrones" Season 6 will be showing up in the spring. No one battles like GoT and it sounds like at least one doozy of a fight is headed our way in 2016.

Gwendoline Christie (Brienne) recently talked to The Sunday Times and dropped a little hint about a Season 6 scene she had been shooting in Northern Ireland. Here's a portion of the story, via

I've been fighting for three whole days, three entire days without ceasing or desisting. Really vicious, vicious, up-close, thuggish fighting." Who with? "I can't tell you. I could, but I'd have to maim you." Who won? "Again, it would be the last thing you ever knew."

Nice. Three days of shooting a vicious, up-close fight. Brienne was just seen killing (we think) Stannis Baratheon. Who is she fighting this time? Well, we don't know, but some hints were recently revealed via Watchers on the Wall.


Still here? Watchers on the Wall has been sharing daily spoiler updates from set, including one on September 10 about a massive battle being filmed in Northern Ireland. They thought it was for Episode 9, traditionally an action-heavy episode. In this case, the battle apparently includes Northern armies, featuring the Umbers, the Boltons, wildlings and -- dun dun dun -- Jon Snow! Yes, Kit Harington -- who recently dropped hints that he was returning -- was seen on location, along with Iwan Rheon, who plays Ramsay Snow Bolton.

Now add Gwendoline talking about Brienne being in a fight scene. All together, it has fans wondering if Brienne is part of this massive battle in the north. Maybe Brienne and Jon Snow fight Ramsay together. Who will have the honor of Ned Stark-ing Roose Bolton's son? If Sansa Stark and Theon Greyjoy aren't there to do it ... our vote goes to "Fat Walda" Frey Bolton. But Jon will do too. He can send Sansa's regards.
