‘Game of Thrones’ fan uproar over ‘The Broken Man’: We wanted Jon Snow back, but not this character

Game of Thrones” fans are in an uproar over the surprising resurrection of a character in Sunday’s episode, “The Broken Man,” which was written by Bryan Cogman and directed by Mark Mylod. Read just a sample of their harsh reactions below and then join the discussion in our forums right here.


Several weeks ago the show brought Jon Snow (Kit Harington) back to life, and now they’ve seemingly done the same thing with Sandor “The Hound” Clegane (Rory McCann). The Hound was last seen battling Brienne of Tarth (Gwendoline Christie) in the Season 4 finale when he was knocked off a cliff. For the past two seasons, fans assumed he was dead. Until now.

Do YOU agree with our readers that this is one resurrection too many? After reading a sampling of their comments below, be sure to sound off in our forums.

Atypical: The Hound is alive?!? Eh, okay I guess. Supreme waste of Ian McShane however.

Cobalt Blue: I don’t like characters coming back to life. Yeah yeah, we technically didn’t see The Hound die. In this case, his “return”’ diminishes the end of Season 4 which was quite effective. And, not that the Hound is a bad character, but it’s not like the show NEEDS him, or that it was suffering without him; it’s already hard enough to get all of the existing characters screen time.

mafro987: The Hound’s scenes were hit and miss.

Icky: Really don’t care about the Hound or his inevitable redemption.

BamaEd: Good seeing the Hound again, even though “GoT” is getting to soap opera levels of miracle reincarnations.
