“I think suffering a near death experience probably changes anyone, and that certainly has changed Sandor Clegane. He’s a more thoughtful person than he was when we last saw him, he’s probably more aware of his vulnerabilities, he knows how close he came to dying, and he’s really thinking about his past in a way that he never had before.”

Weiss adds:

“The unfortunate, ugly reality of the kind of pacifism that Ray is preaching is often suicidal when you’re in the middle of the kind of world that they’re all in. Something sad about the fact that this person who tried desperately to walk away from what he was is being given no real choice but to go full throttle back in the direction of what he really is, which is a killer.”
