2. BROTHERHOOD WITHOUT BANNERS
Since Arya escaped their grasp, Beric Dondarrion and his Brotherhood Without Banners remained in the background, almost forgotten, until the Hound recently encountered them while searching for the rogues responsible for massacring a small community of villagers, as well as the man who saved Sandor. It didn’t take long for the Hound to find his vengeance, but it led him to something unexpected.
The last time Beric and the Hound met each other, one of them died and returned from death. This time, there was just talking and, more surprisingly, hospitality and respect (for the most part), which is pretty rare in Westeros, when you think about it. Beric and Thoros speak of the threat to the North and of the will of the Lord of Light, apparently convincing Sandor to join them in their fight. If they are heading that way, there’s a good chance they’ll encounter Jon Snow or even Melisandre.
