Will Lady Stoneheart be making an appearance in "Game of Thrones" Season 5

There have been several rumors going on about what or who is going to be making appearances in Game of Thrones Season 5 along with how much of the book's story-line is going to be added to this iconic show.

Latest of the rumors is about the book character of Lady Stoneheart. Lady Stoneheart in the book is the reanimated corpse of Lady Stark (Catelyn). Her Corpse was brought back to life by the Brotherhood without Banners with their leader Beric Dondarrion. In a Feast of Crows, she led the brotherhood on a mission to exact revenge for her family.

Michelle Fairley, the actress who acted the show's version of Lady Stark recently had an interview with EW. Here is what she had to say about the character.

EW: There was a lot of online conversation. I heard third-hand that you were basically told that it’s not likely to ever happen. Is that accurate?
Fairley: Yeah, the character’s dead. She’s dead.
EW: Do you have a preference at all — do you think Catelyn’s arc should end where it ended, or would you be into the resurrection idea?
Fairley: You respect the writers’ decision. I knew the arc, and that was it. They can’t stick to the books 100 percent. It’s impossible — they only have 10 hours per season. They have got to keep it dramatic and exciting, and extraneous stuff along the way gets lost in order to maintain the quality of the brilliant show.

Alexander Graves also said that Lady Stoneheart was never planned for Season 4. Here is a full quote:

They [showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss] have such a challenge adapting the books into a really focused television experience. It’s very hard, it’s very complicated, it’s much harder than they’ve been given credit for, I think — and they do a brilliant job. But to bring back Michelle Fairley, one of the greatest actresses around, to be a zombie for a little while — and just kill people? It is really sort of, what are we doing with that? How does it play into the whole story in a way that we’re really going to like? It just didn’t end up being a part of what was going to happen this season. And finally one [more] reason: In case you didn’t notice, a lot happens this season … To add that in is something they opted out of. But what’s funny is that it was never going to be in the season, yet it took off on the Internet like it was going to happen.

What do you think, should Lady Stoneheart make an appearance?
