Blackfish. Is. Back.

Los Siete Reinos and Watchers on the Wall reported that actor Clive Russell is returning to "Game of Thrones" in Season 6 to play Brynden Tully, aka the Blackfish, which will have huge implications for the show.

As far as we know, Blackfish escaped the Red Wedding in Season 3, but we haven't really heard from him since. Reports indicate Tully will be defending Riverrun from a Lannister siege, which will include Jaime Lannister and Bronn.

This is pretty significant news since the siege storyline is a big part of George R.R. Martin's novel A Feast for Crows and was completely ignored in Season 5. Instead, Jaime went to Dorne to save Myrcella, and we were all like, "What?"

With the addition of Jaime, the Dorne storyline completely changed from the books, and also ... "What?"

The siege also hints at the appearance of another character fans have speculated about for a while: The wickedly talented, the one and only, Adele Dazeem Lady Stoneheart.

Stoneheart is a zombified version of Catelyn Stark who has yet to appear in the show. At this point in the books, Jaime has already heard about her exploits hanging people. We also learn Walder Frey's heir was hanged by a group of outlaws, thought to be the Brotherhood without Banners, aka Stoneheart's men. So you really don't want to be a Lannister right now.

Big things are coming ...
