Game of Thrones: The Broken Man

Game of Thrones Season 6 Episode 07 The Broken Man

Sandor warns Ray that the Brotherhood will return, but Ray refuses to start a confrontation with them. After Sandor goes out to the forest to gather some wood, he returns to find the villagers slaughtered and Ray hanged. Angered, Sandor picks up an axe and marches off.

SANDOR: They don’t believe in your Seven. They’re from the Brotherhood. They follow the Red God.
BROTHER RAY: Aye, well, all are welcome here. Anyway, we got nothing for them.
SANDOR: Sure, you do. You’ve got food, you’ve got steel even if you say you don’t. And you’ve got women.
BROTHER RAY: What do you want to do? Fight them? Kill them? It’d be you against all of them. I mean, these people don’t know how to fight.
SANDOR: You do.
BROTHER RAY: I’m done with fighting.
SANDOR: Even if it’s to protect yourself?
BROTHER RAY: Violence is a disease. You don’t cure a disease by spreading it to more people.
SANDOR: You don’t cure it by dying, either.

Game of Thrones: Brother Ray’s speech

Game of Thrones Season 6 Episode 07 The Broken Man

At a gathering, a trio of men from the Brotherhood Without Banners arrives and attempts to extort the villagers, but upon finding out that they have no worthwhile possessions, they leave.

BROTHER RAY: I was a soldier once. All my superiors thought I was brave. I wasn’t. I mean, I never ran from a fight. Only because I was afraid my friends would see I was afraid. That’s all I was, a coward. We followed orders no matter the orders. Burn that village. Fine, I’m your arsonist. Steal that farmer’s crops. Good, I’m your thief. Kill those young lads so they won’t take up arms against us. I’m your murderer. I remember once a woman screaming at us, calling us animals as we dragged her son from their hut. But we weren’t animals. Animals are true to their nature and we had betrayed ours. I cut that young boy’s throat myself as his mother screamed and my friends held her back. That night I felt such shame. Shame was so heavy on me, I couldn’t eat, I couldn’t sleep. All I could do was stare into that dark sky and listen to that mother screaming her son’s name. I’ll hear her screaming the rest of my life. Now, I know I can never bring that lad back. All I can do with time I’ve got left is bring a little goodness into the world. That’s all any of us can do, isn’t it? Never too late to stop robbing people, to stop killing people. Start helping people. It’s never too late to come back. And it’s not about waiting for the gods to answer your prayers. It’s not even about the gods. It’s about you. Learning you have to answer your prayers yourself.

MAN: What are you doing here?
BROTHER RAY: Well, we’re talking about life. You?
MAN: Protecting the people.
BROTHER RAY: Well, we thank you for your protection. Who are you protecting us from?
MAN: Do you have any horses?
BROTHER RAY: No horses. No gold. No steel.
MAN: Food, then. Protecting the people is hungry work.
BROTHER RAY: I’m sure it is. You’re welcome to stay for supper, but we have hungry mouths here.
MAN: Stay safe. The night is dark and full of terrors.

Game of Thrones: Arya is attacked by the Waif

Game of Thrones Season 6 Episode 07 The Broken Man

Arya successfully secures passage back to Westeros by bribing a Westerosi trader, while walking the streets of Braavos. However, she is subsequently attacked on a nearby bridge and repeatedly stabbed in the abdomen by the Waif, who uses the disguise of an elderly woman. Arya pushes the Waif away, and barely escapes by jumping off the bridge and swimming away underwater. Surfacing, she feels her wounded stomach with her hands as blood covers them. She is then left stumbling through the streets, critically wounded, as many of the Braavosi merchants stare.

Game of Thrones: Yara and Theon

Game of Thrones Season 6 Episode 07 The Broken Man

Theon and Yara take the Iron Fleet to Volantis to take on supplies. Yara, who is enjoying a Volantene prostitute, tries to encourage Theon to regain his former identity and confidence, as she will need his assistance in retaking the Iron Islands from Euron. Yara then reveals to Theon that she plans to take the Iron Fleet to Meereen and forge an alliance with Daenerys before Euron.

YARA: You escaped. You hear me? You got away and you’re never going back. We’ll get justice for you.
THEON: If I got justice, my burnt body would hang over the gates of Winterfell.
YARA: Fuck justice, then. We’ll get revenge. Drink. Listen to me. If you’re so broken that there’s no coming back, take a knife and cut your wrists. End it. But if you’re staying, Theon, I need you. We’re gonna sail to Meereen. We’re gonna make a pact
with this Dragon Queen. And we’re gonna take back the Iron Islands. Are you with me? Are you really with me?

Game of Thrones: “House Stark is dead”

Game of Thrones Season 6 Episode 07 The Broken Man

Jon Snow, Sansa and Ser Davos are unable to secure the allegiance of House Glover, with Lord Robett Glover pointing out how Robb failed to protect his home from the Ironborn.

LORD GLOVER: You’re asking me to join your army. Who is fighting in this army?
JON: The bulk of the force is made up of wildlings.
LORD GLOVER: Then the rumors are true. I didn’t dare believe them. I received you out of respect for your father. Now I would like you to leave. House Glover will not abandon its ancestral home to fight alongside wildlings.
JON: Lord Glover.
LORD GLOVER: There’s nothing else to say.
SANSA: I would remind you that House Glover is pledged to House Stark. Sworn to answer when called upon.
LORD GLOVER: Yes, my family served House Stark for centuries. We wept when we heard of your father’s death. When my brother was lord of this castle, he answered Robb’s call and hailed him King in the North. And where was King Robb when the ironborn attacked this castle? When they threw my wife and children in prison and brutalized and killed our subjects? Taking up with a foreign whore. Getting himself and those who followed him killed. I served House Stark once, but House Stark is dead.
