HBO and Game of Thrones are always quite tight-lipped about the details of their productions.
The last time we saw Sandor "the hound" Clegane, Arya Stark had left him on the hill side begging for the release of death. Arya saw fit to rob him of his coins, and leave him to pass slowly of his injuries from the hands of Brienne of Tarth.
According to a recent interview with actor Ian McShane on BBC Radio 5, McShane discusses being "a former warrior who has renounced violence."
"He now leads this peace cult, wherever they are. But also, I have nursed a loved character, a much loved character back to life. And it reintroduces, I won't say him or her... but it's a much loved character, that everyone thinks has died.

While McShane will not come right out and state who he has nursed, the options are limited. This leads fans to believe that McShane may play a character known as Elder Brother.
Or, as some fans believe, could McShane play Meribald, which may take the story in a different direction?
