(Warning: Minor Game of Thrones spoilers within.) According to savvy spotters at Watchers on the Wall, German actor Tom Wlaschiha, who played mysterious assassin Jaqen H’ghar in Thrones‘ second season, will appear in at least one episode of season five. On many shows, it would be easy to assume that a returning actor will come back in the same role, but since Jaqen was a magical face-shifter last seen doing this, it’s unclear whether that’s the case with Wlaschiha. Some book fans have speculated about Jaqen’s possible return to the narrative, while others suspect Wlaschiha will be playing an altered version of another one of Arya Stark’s mentors. Either way, the next season of GOT just got slightly hunkier.
