Too many questions are begging for answers ahead of the "Game of Thrones" Season 6 finale episode. Who will die and who will live? And who really is Jon Snow. Thankfully, the hints are out there to shed light on these GoT mysteries.

When HBO teased that the Queen Mother, Cersei Lannister, will be tried by the court presided over by the High Sparrow one possible conclusion immediately floated around - it's end of the road for the scheming Cersei. And it could be as Tommen has already outlawed trial by combat, thereby denying his mother a sure ticket to escape death by way of Ser Robert or The Mountain.

However, it looks like Cersei will get the better of the High Sparrow and his army of Faith Militant. How exactly, a report by Deadline did not mention but a story published by the news blog site seems so sure that the character will stay on for more Game of Thrones segments to come.

Deadline said that HBO has signed up Lena Headey, who plays Cersei, to keep tormenting her GoT enemies possibly through the end of the show. Headey heads the pack of GoT actors that the show producer would want to stay for two more seasons.

"I hear mainstays Peter Dinklage (Tyrion Lannister), Kit Harington (Jon Snow), Lena Headey (Cersei Lannister), Emilia Clarke (Daenerys Targaryen) and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (Jaime Lannister) will all be paid north of $500,000 an episode for Season 7, which has been officially picked up, and Season 8, which is widely expected," Deadline reported.

The reported new contracts and salary bumps indicated that at the very least, Cersei will possibly outlive the High Sparrow. But as the report has clarified, there is no assurance that the Queen Mother as well as Tyrion, Snow, Daenerys and Jaime will not die anytime within Seasons 7 and 8.

In the same way, those still in negotiating phase with HBO have yet to be written off for the next two years. That would mean fan favorites Sansa and Arya Starks could still be part of the show right after the current season and therefore will not be slayed in "The Winds of Winter".

And as Jon Snow has been picked to remain part of the Game of Thrones core characters, his backstory is seen to get more attention and in GoT S06 E10 speculations are rife that Snow's real parents will finally be revealed.

GoT fan site Wiki Of Thrones reported that the actor who appeared as the young Ned Stark will surface anew in The Winds of Winter episode. "He (Ned) will appear again briefly in episode six before another significant showing in episode ten," the report quoted a recently published story as saying, which talked about Rob Amayo as the young Eddard.

In reappearing through Bran's vision, Ned is expected to discover the dying Lyanna Stark that perhaps would lead to the latter asking her brother to care for her newly-born son by Rhaegar Targaryen. The scene, if indeed will be shown, is seen by fans as the confirmation of the R + L = J theory or that Jon Snow has Targaryen blood and is the rightful heir to the Iron Throne.

Game of Thrones Season 6 Episode 10 (The Winds of Winter) will air June 26 on HBO.
