Episode 9 – The Broken Man

In this episode, we talk about “The Broken Man,” Episode 7 and the reappearance of a couple of favorite characters. We have Sandor Clegane, in his first appearance since the end of Season 4, in the Riverlands with the smallfolk building a church with Brother Ray (played expertly by Ian McShane). Brynden “The Blackfish” Tully makes his first appearance on screen since the Red Wedding and parlays with Jaime Lannister, who arrives in the Riverlands with his right hand man Bronn, who himself was back for the first time since the end of last season. We also talked about Sansa’s mystery letter and the attempted murder of Arya Stark in Braavos. Then, in previewing Episode 8 – entitled “No One” – we discussed how Arya leaves Braavos behind and how the Riverlands plotlines might resolve themselves.

Thanks as always for listening!
