Game of Thrones brought us yet another resurrection this week with the surprising return of fan favorite Sandor "The Hound" Clegane. With Jon, Benjen, and now our favorite chicken eating killer back is it possible that Westeros is starting to feel a little bit too safe? The Cast Beyond the Wall investigates this phenomenon along with the rest of the big reveals from this week's episode The Broken Man. Austin, Daniel and I give our initial reactions before diving into our scene by scene recap.
This week was another great table-setter that featured a little bit more of the classic Game of Thrones monologuing that's been lacking in the breakneck pacing of the season so far. Margery proves that she's got the High Sparrow handled in her own way and even sends Lady Olenna Tyrell back to High Garden. Further north, the Starks have apparently discovered a magical means of teleportation as they recruit what's left of the northern houses.
After suffering from a couple of lame storylines, it looks like Jaime's banishment from King's Landing might be the most interesting thing to happen to him in seasons. He's joined by Bronn as he's forced to retake Riverrun from the Blackfish. For those of you who may have forgotten, Brynden "The Blackfish" Tully, is Catelyn Stark's Uncle who escaped the clutches of The Red Wedding.
