“Game of Thrones” season 6 episode 6 “Blood of my Blood” has just aired and we saw the return of some beloved, and hated, characters such as Benjen Stark and Walder Frey. With the possibility of lasting for only two more seasons the show have hastily moved things forward and this time, a well-known character is possibly returning to well, you know, f— the King.
Yes, according to The Independent, Sandor Clegane better known as The Hound will return in the next episode, which coincidentally is titled “The Broken Man.” He is indeed a man and he was definitely broken by Brienne of Tarth but one thing is for sure, he was never shown to have actually died.
Judging from the injury he took, an ordinary man would have succumbed and became crow feed but Sandor Clegane is far from ordinary. The Hound was left for dead by Arya Stark whom he begged to end his life, but Arya left his battered body as he screamed “Kill Me!”
What are the chances that the former bodyguard of King Joffrey is still alive and roaming the Seven Kingdoms? Apparently it is very high, and it’s all thanks to Ian McShane revealing what his role will be in “Game of Thrones.”
Ian McShane is set to guest star in the show as a leader of a peace cult and according to him has nursed “a loved character who everybody thinks is dead.”
So which beloved character was injured so much that he needs to be nursed? So far the only character that fits the bill is Sandor Clegane who was beaten to a pulp by Brienne of Tarth over their custody battle for Arya Stark and no, they weren’t a divorced couple.
The Hound returning isn’t a farfetched idea considering that long dead people, presumably dead people and definitely dead people are coming back to life in the show, and even in other shows! “Game of Thrones” has definitely stopped the rise in body count although that doesn’t mean that they won’t make you think that they killed them already, those heartless jerks.
