The noble Game of Thrones clan has seen little but woe during the first four seasons of the hit HBO drama, which returns Sunday (9 p.m. ET/PT).
Patriarch Ned Stark was beheaded. Later his wife, Catelyn, and their son, Robb, and his bride were murdered at the Red Wedding. Robb’s direwolf was killed, too. The man who killed Robb, Roose Bolton, is now lord of the family home, Winterfell, which, incidentally, was burned to the ground.
