Is Shae Back on ‘Game of Thrones’ Season 6?
Game of Thrones Season 6 is rumored to feature the return of several supposedly dead characters in Season 6. Could one of them be Shae?

Jon Snow (Kit Harington) is 99 percent confirmed to be returning, The Hound (Rory McCann) has been spotted near filming locations, and even a young Ned Stark is reportedly making an appearance. But the newest report out of Spain features Sibel Kekilli — and we did not see that coming!
Fan site Winter Is Coming has tracked down some photographs showing the actress who portrayed Tyrion’s late love interest on the Meereen set in Pensicola, Spain. Sibel is wandering the grounds with showrunner David Benioff and Conleth Hill, who plays Varys.

It’s worth noting that Sibel is dressed in modern clothing in these photos — but here she is in costume, which suggests she really is filming.
Winter Is Coming theorizes, and we happen to agree, that if Sibel is there for filming she isn’t really alive. Instead, she could be a hallucination of Tyrion, who is still dealing with the grief of killing both her and his father in the Season 4 finale.
In the A Song of Ice and Fire books feature Tyrion’s grief as a major character trait in the later books, but Season 5 largely glazed over the impact of his Season 4 actions (though apparently he grieved enough to win an Emmy, go figure).
If Season 6 does feature this plot point, it might make sense for Tyrion to start seeing Shae everywhere to better show the audience what he’s going through.

Whatever the case may be, one thing is clear: We know less about what’s going on this season than any season before it, and that’s pretty thrilling.
