** Spoilers and speculation ahead **
The official synopsis for episode 6 of Game of Thrones season 6 says that ‘an old foe comes back into the picture’. Some fans are guessing that the ‘old foe’ is the fan favorite character ‘The Hound’ but we think that Sandor Clegane will not feature in the upcoming episode – Blood of my Blood. Instead he may return in episode 7- The Broken Man as the title is more suited to the way his return is hinted in the books. Also, he is not really a ‘foe’ but more of a good guy in a bad world.
We think that the ‘old foe’ is Walder Frey and he has already been confirmed for a return this season and was also featured briefly in the trailer for season 6. It will be interesting to see how his story pans out after he architected the Red Wedding with the Lannisters and the Boltons which saw the deaths of Robb, Catelyn and Talisa Stark. He is also in Arya Stark’s list and if Arya does head back to Westeros this season, we might see her get the revenge she wanted.
Sunday’s episode will most likely feature return of another long lost character. You can read about it here.
