Will Jon Snow meet a long lost relative in Game of Thrones Season 6?

We’ve heard a lot of juicy rumours fresh off the mill surrounding Jon Snow in Game of Thrones season 6 – but the guys at  Squareeyed have come across one that is (somewhat) new.

Yes, the latest Thrones set scouting report from Watchers on the Wall includes a delicious new detail on the possible whereabouts of Jon Snow. It looks like he’ll be re-teaming with his long-lost sister.

Nope, not Daenerys Targaryan (L+R=J is still just a theory, for now, after all), and not Arya either — although that would be fun — but Sansa (Sophie Turner)!

The bad news is, it doesn’t appear this’ll be a cheerful family reunion at all.

According to their rumours, the Northern Ireland set for this week featured Jon Snow and Sansa Stark in an intense outdoor scene at the Winterfell set with Ramsay Bolton (Iwan Rheon), Petyr Baelish a.k.a. Littlefinger (Aiden Gillen) and a giant. Wow. What a moment that will be.

As much as we wish for Sansa (or anyone, for that matter) to never have to see the likes of Ramsay or Littlefinger ever again, here we have it.

Apparently in the scene being rehearsed, there’s a “great deal of tension” between the group before the giant tries to make its way into the castle gates, leaving everyone scrambling to fend it off.
