Still think Benjen would make the best prologue.

Yes. Exactly. A reckoning must be made, important characters must meet their end and that prologue would set the tone for the entire book.

Other than it has to be either Gerion Lannister as a half-mad cartwheel instructor for Rickon on Skagos OR include a round of cyvasse in it.

Following that logic, some good choices would be Willas Tyrell, Gerold Dayne or someone at Casterly Rock. But I still think Cotter Pyke or someone else at Hardhome is the most likely scenario.

Happiest prologue ever.

But given GRRMs use of random non important characters in some of the previous titles such as Pate it could easily be someone new....who witnesses events or serves to recall important events that are occurring right now in the Seven Kingdoms or over across the sea....
If I had a vote though in the matter I'd wish for someone other than Benjen. I'm not really attached to him as a character and I don't care what he's up to north of the wall at this moment. I get that The Others are a big threat and all but its so uninteresting to me when compared to all the war and political intrigue that's going no in Westeros....

Danerys, gang-raped by Jhaqo's Khalasar after Drogon has left her behind.
Jon, being stuck in Ghost seing his own funeral pyre.
Tyrion, accidentally stabbed in a brothel (I think I posted that one before).
Davos, stranded in Hardhome after searching for Rickon in vain on Skagos.

I like this one, but no way it's going to happen.

It would also most likely remove a character before his narrative purpose has been fulfilled.

Aeron is a POV character, so it's not happening.

What if Benjen's purpose is to simply give the readers more information aobut The Others. It is believed he hid the cache of dragonglass Ghost found. Perhaps there are a few more things he can leave behind to help anyone who follows him.
