'Game of Thrones' Producer Talks Shocking Character Return (Spoilers!)

'Game of Thrones' Producer Talks Shocking Character Return (Spoilers!)

SPOILER ALERT! Don’t continue reading if you don’t want to know what happens on tonight’s episode of Game of Thrones.

A shocking reveal came during the Sunday (May 29) episode of Game of Thrones! Benjen Stark (Joseph Mawle) made his first appearance on the show since the pilot episode. You may remember, the character vanished after wandering North of the Wall.

“It’s hard for me to talk about Benjen’s return without getting into the nitty gritty of the adaptation process. But, yeah, season 6 is rife with Stark reunions! That’s another thing that’s been very heartening to track with the fans. The show is so sprawling and there are so many threads, but, at it’s heart it’s largely about this good family that was torn apart. So seeing some of them connect again (Jon, Sansa), (Benjen, Bran) was very satisfying to write and to shoot. And it was great to have Joe Mawle back with us – it must have been a trip for him to step back into the character after so long – but he’s also decidedly not the Benjen of season 1, so that was fun to explore,” co-executive producer Bryan Cogman told EW.

    AGAIN! Are your staff really that moronic? You can put DWTS spoliers below a cut but you can’t with GoT. There was no way, even scrolling at speed I couldn’t see Benjen Stark and Joseph Mawles name. You really are idiots aren’t you?

    He wasn’t missing since the pilot episode, but it was close, episode 3, I think.
