We are still a few months away from the Game of Thrones season 5 premiere but that doesn’t mean the news won’t keep rolling in. But, be forewarned that there may be possible spoilers in this post! You have been warned!
When we last saw Roose Bolton and his army, he was marching to Winterfell with his now-legitimate son, Ramsay, and Theon Greyjoy. Now, a fellow character who was seen briefly with Ramsay last season seems to be getting more screen time for this upcoming season. Do we all remember Myranda (pictured above)? I know I do, we first saw her in season four helping Ramsay hunt down a girl in the woods. I bet she’s starting to sound familiar now. It has now been confirmed that her role will increase from the two episode rank from season 4 to now four episode for season 5. Hey, a jump is a jump, right?
Now, this is where it is getting a tad bit tricky. We have heard that showrunners, D&D, are going to start diverting from the books in the upcoming season and with Myranda’s storyline, we are now seeing how they are going about this. It seems she will be taking over for the role of Jeyne Poole who does not exist on the show but she is Sansa’s childhood best friend in the books.
According to LatinTimes:
Season 5 will feature the Bolton’s marching on Winterfell and attempting to control the territory due to Roose Bolton’s newly appointed Warden of the North title, and though the group is poised for war, they are also making some less bloody political moves. Ramsay Bolton, under the direction of his father Roose, will be ordered to marry Arya Stark, the seemingly last remaining heir of Winterfell.
Now, us fans know that Arya has not been back in Winterfell since season 1 and at the end of season 4, she was heading to Braavos and it seems, at this time, no one has any idea where she is headed. So, how does this configure with the Bolton storyline? Don’t worry, I got you covered.
This will prompt the Bolton’s to create a fake Arya, in the book series the role of fake Arya Stark and future bride of Ramsay is played reluctantly by Jeyne Poole, although it seems that in the TV series, this deceitful scheme will be played out by Myranda.
Now granted, this makes sense because with Game of Thrones already having one of the largest ensemble casts on television, there was bound to be a few characters cut and combined eventually. I think this will be interesting though. Granted, I was not too crazy about Myranda in season 4 but I am curious as to where they will take her character for the upcoming season. Also, with Myranda technically already being in a relationship with Ramsay, could we maybe see a different side to Ramsay? Hmm, what does everyone else think?
