Production on Game of Thrones Season 6 continues in Northern Ireland, as the crew builds a new castle set. The set hints at a certain plotline coming in the new season, so beware that SPOILERS ARE COMING.
As Watchers on the Wall reports, Instagram user Jamcall captured photos of the new location. The photos reveal the outer façade of a castle being built on a riverfront. The castle has a drawbridge and the trout sigil of House Tully above the entryway, marking it pretty clearly as Riverrun, the seat of House Tully.

So how does this tie into the events of Season 6? Previous rumors hinted that – after a season long detour into Dorne – Jaime Lannister (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) would be getting back to his storyline from the novels. This has Jaime abandoning Cersei in her hour of need, and heading to the Riverlands to lift the siege at Riverrun. While the filming location is not officially confirmed, these photos certainly seem to suggest that Jaime will be paying the Riverlands a visit.
Game of Thrones returns to HBO in 2016.
