Spoilers for Game of Thrones!
The sixth season of Game of Thrones is underway, and in an interview with Radio One’s Nick Grimshaw, Maisie Williams has confirmed that we can expect the return of a character we haven’t seen since season three.
When asked if we’d hear from Rickon – the youngest Stark – this season, Maisie first replied “maybe”, before confirming:
“Yes, we will indeedOh no, Im literally going to get off the air and someones going to email me!”
If you remember, the last time was saw Rickon was not longafter he and his brother Bran fled Winterfell with Hodor and Osha.
After the group encountered Meera and Jojen,Bran suggested that they split up. While he would head north of the Wall (to find the three-eyed raven) with Meera, Jojen and Hodor, he asked Osha to take his younger brother to theLast Hearth, where the Starks’ bannermen the Umbers would protect him.
We haven’t seen Rickon since, and we’re intrigued to see how they’re going to bring him back into the story.
Some are speculating that the preview of next week’s Game of Thrones could offer a clue…
Maybe the “gift” for Ramsay Bolton (who recently lost Sansa) is Rickon…
Let us know what you think in the comments!

Creator of the immensely popular Facebook page (and book, and website) ‘Humans of New York’, Brandon Stanton has made a living interviewing ordinary people.
Photographing the “humans” of New York first, but also 20 other countries, hisinnumerable stories have become somewhat of a cultural phenomenon. He has over 17 million followers on Facebook, and his posts regularly get over one hundred thousand likes.
Now, Brandon has used his vast influence to speak out on an issue that he feels must be addressed. In an impassioned open letter, he slams Donald Trump, describing his decision to do so as “a moral one”.
I try my hardest not to be political. Ive refused to interview several of your fellow candidates. I didnt want to risk any personal goodwill by appearing to take sides in a contentious election. I thought: Maybe the timing is not right. But I realize now that there is no correct time to oppose violence and prejudice. The time is always now. Because along with millions of Americans, Ive come to realize that opposing you is no longer a political decision. It is a moral one.
Ive watched you retweet racist images. Ive watched you retweet racist lies. Ive watched you take 48 hours to disavow white supremacy. Ive watched you joyfully encourage violence, and promise to pay the legal fees of those who commit violence on your behalf. Ive watched you advocate the use of torture and the murder of terrorists families. Ive watched you gleefully tell stories of executing Muslims with bullets dipped in pig blood. Ive watched you compare refugees to snakes, and claim that Islam hates us.
I am a journalist, Mr. Trump. And over the last two years I have conducted extensive interviews with hundreds of Muslims, chosen at random, on the streets of Iran, Iraq, and Pakistan. Ive also interviewed hundreds of Syrian and Iraqi refugees across seven different countries. And I can confirm the hateful one is you.
Those of us who have been paying attention will not allow you to rebrand yourself. You are not a unifier. You are not presidential. You are not a victim of the very anger that youve joyfully enflamed for months. You are a man who has encouraged prejudice and violence in the pursuit of personal power. And though your words will no doubt change over the next few months, you will always remain who you are.
While Donald hasn’t yet responded to this open letter, it has 1.7 million likes on Facebook, and has been shared almost 900,000 times.
Given Trump’stendency to hit out at anyone who dares criticise him, we’d imagine that Brandon has an angry retort to be looking forward to…

Exhibitingabout the worst customer service we’ve ever seen, the explosive row between a dog groomer and one of her clients (the owner, not the dog) has gone viral.
Gaz Egan had used a mobile grooming service, and they picked up his dog, as planned at 10am.
All well and good. It was when the time came for the dog to be returned, that things started to go wrong. As Gaz explained on Facebook, his dog was due to be returned at 1, sowhen it wasn’t back by 2, he called the business to see what was going on.
The groomer told him it’d be half 2, and then told him to come and pick up the dog himself. Gaz headed down to the headquarters, only to find that his dog wasn’t there.
The groomer, over the phone, refused to bring his dog back until he paid. Understandably, Gaz did not want to pay until he saw his dog, safe and sound.
The video he recorded (of what turned out to be a pretty explosive argument) has gone viral, with over 35,000 people sharing it:
Gaz did eventually get his dog back, only to find that her paw had been nipped.
The dog grooming business –Manchester Dog Spa & Day Care – has now been closed.

You might think that your parents are pretty cool, but unless they were packing you alcohol to take to school… well they’re not as cool as 17-year-old McKenzie’s mum…
The American teen took to Twitter earlier this week, explaining that she’d been pretty confused to find a Four Loko packed with her sandwiches…
(For those of us not in the USA, a Four Loko is a flavoured beer, popular among US college students).
It turns out, in her sleepy state, McKenzie’s mum had mistaken the beer – which actually belonged to McKenzie’s 23-year-old brother – for an iced tea, and sent her underage daughter off to school with it…
Luckily, McKenzie realised that this unusual lunchbox addition must be a mistake, and not a suggestion from her mum as to how she should spend her day…
Very responsibly, McKenzie disposed of the beer (instead of taking it and getting p*ssed at school), but her tweet has really captured people’s imaginations…
Her tweet has almost 100,000 retweets, and 230,000 likes..

Donald Trump really is quite a terrifying man, when you’re done laughing at him.
His way of structuring sentences is somewhat iconic, and along with his key phrases like ‘yuge’ and ‘great guy’ and his outlandish views when it comes to race and right and wrong, his version of popular film plots must be pretty outlandish.
Someone came up with the idea of #TrumpExplainsMoviePlots and, predictably, the funny people of Twitter totally ran with it.
Check out a few of our favourites:

The Penguins of Madagascar was a hit. Funny, it appealed to both kids and adults, and it had the voice of Benedict Cumberbatch.
Seriously, what more could you want?
Well, there was one brilliant running joke that we managed to completely miss. We won’t tell you what it is, as reddit user Michae1 has pretty much pointed it out for us.
See how long it takes you to get:
