The Cain of the House of Dogs got a thread, so why not this tarnished Abel? Rory McCann became one of the show's most popular characters and best anti-villains/heroes, while still being a pitiable and even occaisionally terrifying murderous wreck. He also has one of the more interesting character arcs in the show so far, ending up in a three sixty from his previous position of loyal thug to filthy rich and corrupt nobility at the height of its power who terrorizes young girls to grudging but sincere champion of an orphaned girl with no family or material wealth. The fact he was basically Arya's third father figure in the show also acted as a nice illustration of how bad her situation's got, as was his meeting with his foil Brienne in the Season finale. So, (book spoilers) Spoiler do you think Martin was teasing the character's return in his books or just giving the character an ambiguous ending with the suspiciously tall, limping gravedigger on the same Quiet Isle that holds his supposedly untamable horse? And do you think the show will have McCann return? I could see it going either way, though I feel the book's scenario could be the finale to his arc.
