The 'Game of Thrones' premiere included a sad nod to season 4 you may have missed
HBO Warning: Minor spoiler alerts for those who have not yet watched the season seven premiere of Game of Thrones.
If you watched the "Game of Thrones" season seven premiere Sunday, you might have missed the sad reemergence of two minor characters from season four: a farmer and his daughter. The first indication of this plot point came in a clip during the pre-episode "Game of Thrones" recap. The clip was from season four, episode three ("Breaker of Chains"), when the Hound (Sandor Clegane) and Arya cross paths with a farmer and his daughter in the Riverlands while making their way to the Vale. The farmer invites Arya and Clegane to spend the night in his home so that they can avoid the impending rainfall. While Clegane and Arya are being fed by the farmer, the farmer offers Clegane some silver in exchange for his help lifting a hand on his farm. Clegane instead decides to steal the farmer's silver the following morning despite the farmer's graciousness as a host, justifying his theft by insisting that the farmer and his daughter will be "dead by winter." In Sunday's episode, Beric Dondarrion and Thoros suggest that the Brotherhood Without Banners - which Clegane became a part of back in season six - spend the night in a house that happens to be the one Clegane robbed back in season four.
