'Game of Thrones' Producer Comments on [Spoiler's] Shocking Return!

Spoilers! Don’t continue reading if you haven’t watched tonight’s episode of Game of Thrones.

Sandor Clegane, aka The Hound, returned to Game of Thrones for the first time since season four during the latest episode on Sunday (June 5).

“He was always going to come back, it was just a matter of how,” executive producer Bryan Cogman, who wrote the episode, told EW about The Hound.

He continued, “It was my favorite week on Game of Thrones because it’s a beautiful little three-act play. Very much on purpose it tonally doesn’t really feel like Game of Thrones until the end when everyone gets slaughtered. Ian McShane (Brother Ray) is a New Age ex-warrior with a painful history of violence, and he’s found his own flock trying to rebuild their lives. He sees Sandor as a candidate. He recognizes in Sandor a bit of himself. The Hound, apart from being grateful, starts to open up to him. He’s the first and only friend he’s ever friend in his life. And that was an interesting relationship to explore. The scenes have a light touch and gentleness and humanity and humor that you don’t find on the show – then the raiders ride in. The Hound is few miles away chopping wood and they come back and slaughter everybody, pushing him back into the cycle of violence.

'Game of Thrones' Season 7 May Feature Fewer Episodes

Director Jack Bender may have just confirmed the amount of episodes Game of Thrones season seven will feature.

During an interview with Vanity Fair, the director, who helmed two episodes in the sixth season, was asked if he would be back next season.

“I don’t know the answer to that. They’re only doing seven [episodes], and they’ve got their regulars who have done it forever. I know that I had a wonderful experience doing the show and I know that Dan and David are thrilled with the shows, but I’ve got this series I’m mounting for the beginning of 2017 based on Stephen King’s trilogy of books, starting with Mr. Mercedes…I haven’t been asked yet and I also don’t know what their schedule is going to be. But under the best of circumstances, schedule and everything, I had a great experience doing the show. If available and they wanted me to, I would love to do that,” Jack said.

Earlier in the year, it was disclosed there may only be 13 episodes left in the entire series, but numbers were never fully disclosed.

'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.
