The latest Game of Thrones episode, The Broken Man had lot of exciting scenes and as usual we are back with our detailed analysis of the episode in which we share with you the minute details that you might have missed in the episode. We would like to call it the Game of Details. Even the latest episode has lot of minute details which you might have missed. So without any further delay, we will straightaway dive into the details.
1. Gods aren’t done with you
The Broken Man saw the return of the Hound and he seemed to be a changed man and he didn’t display any of the traits of the old Hound. Septon Ray was the only man with whom we saw the Hound interacting and their interaction was interesting as there might have been a subtle hint about what is going to happen in the future (yes, we are talking about the Cleganebowl). While talking about how the Hound almost died multiple times, Ray told him that the Gods weren’t done with him yet.
This wasn’t the first time someone said this to the Hound. The Hound fought with Beric Dondarrion and after the Hound won, Beric had something similar to say to the Hound.
It seems that all the Gods are interested in the Hound.
2. The Riverlands and the Dothraki Sea are the same place
The Hound and others are supposed to be somewhere in the Riverlands but on closer inspection, you will realise that you have already seen the place before.
In the last season the same location was used to shoot the scene in which Daenerys was captured by the Dothraki. Both the scenes were shot at Binevenagh, which is a mountain in Northern Ireland.
3. Arya Stark is left-handed
We know that Arya Stark is left handed and the show has made it clear to us many times about this.
However, Reddit user rolldownthewindow noticed that in the latest episode Arya Stark used her right hand to do all the things. She used her right hand to throw the bag of coins on the table, to lift them up and when she was stabbed, she used her right hand to apply pressure to the wound instead of her dominant hand.
This makes us wonder if we really saw the real Arya Stark in the episode or was it a continuity error as Maisie Williams is right handed and they simply forgot.
4. Arya Stark had already seen the face of the old woman
We saw Arya Stark casually strolling through the streets of Braavos as if she hadn’t aborted a mission and quit the Faceless Men. While standing on a bridge, she met an old woman who turned out to be the Waif and she got stabbed multiple times. However, an interesting thing to note is that Arya had already seen the face before in the House of Black and White. So the face wasn’t completely unknown to Arya.
5. The parallel with the Red Wedding
Arya Stark was stunned when she was suddenly attacked by an old woman, who turned out to be the Waif. The Waif stabbed Arya multiple times before Arya managed to escape by jumping off the bridge. This scene reminded many fans of the infamous Red Wedding, where Talisa Stark was killed by a Frey by stabbing her in the same fashion.
6. Jon and Sansa have camped near the place where Stannis had camped
In the episode, when Jon Snow, Sansa Stark and Davos Seaworth arrived at the camp, Davos informed them that Stannis had camped at the same place. This might not seem to be of much importance untill you think about the horrible scene from last season where Shireen was sacrificed to the Lord of the Light. It was this place where she was burned alive and Davos Seaworth is going to find about it very soon. In the trailer for season 6, we had seen a scene in which Davos was standing alone in the snow and when you see the image, you will realise that it’s the same place where Shireen was sacrificed.
7. The parallel between Arya and the Hound
Reddit user Et3rnauta has made an interesting observation about the situation in which Arya and the Hound are right now and the situation in which they were in season 4. Here’s what he had to say:
“In the last chapter where Arya and The Hound were together (S4E10), Arya was searching for vengance and The Hound was left bleeding to death; and in this chapter, The Hound was searching for vengance and Arya was left bleeding to death.”
