A very interesting character seems to be returning for season seven of Game of Thrones, Watchers on the Wall reports. This news is especially surprising considering that the character's departure from the show seemed very final. But the actor's official resume has been updated to include season 7, so it seems to be solid bet he'll be returning in some fashion. Spoilers ahead, you have been warned.

The character apparently returning in season 7 is Walder Frey. The weird thing about this is that Arya cut his throat last season after feeding him a pie made out of his own sons, which seems like a pretty final exit. But actor David Bradley, who plays Frey, has had his United agents profile officially updated to include season 7 of Game of Thrones.

It seems unlikely we'll be seeing the real Walder Frey, barring a miraculous resurrection worthy of Jon Snow. More that likely, Arya will imitate him using her Faceless talents. It could also be possible he'll be returning via flashback or as a White Walker. 

Whatever happens with Frey, this only builds up speculation more. What capacity do you think David Bradley will return in? Are you looking forward to seeing more Walder Frey, whatever form he takes?
