David Benioff: “Benjen was so important in the early episodes. He’s an important character who just disappears. It’s one of the mysteries that’s been out there for several seasons and we’ve been looking forward to bringing him back.”
Dan Weiss: “Coldhands Benjen obviously had a lot to do with the Three-Eyed Raven over the past several years since his disappearance and he’s got a bit of window into Bran’s purpose.”
Benioff: “Bran had to absorb the history of the world, the entire history of the world in imagery. They talk about the Three-Eyed Raven, it’s not just a title that you get. There’s a part of him that’s no longer Brandon Stark but is the Three-Eyed Raven and the Three-Eyed Raven is not entirely human.”
Benioff and Weiss also talk about Arya Stark’s future as she decides not to take Lady Stork’s life and Daenerys’ speech from the last episode. Check out more in the video below.
