Game of Thrones star hints about major reunion in season 7

Contains spoilers for Game of Thrones season 7, episode 1

Showrunners have already promised that the seventh season of Game of Thrones will bring together characters who have never met. But one of the actors recently teased that there will also be at least one overdue reunion.

Jerome Flynn, who plays the sellsword-turned-knight Bronn, told Variety that the return of Tyrion Lannister (Peter Dinklage) to Westeros could make Bronn rethink his allegiance. "He's never going to put all his eggs in one basket for sure," Flynn said. "I think an interesting–it looks likely with Tyrion coming over with Daenerys (Emilia Clarke) that the lines will be blurred for him, possibly. But what he's going to do about that I have no idea."

Bronn and Tyrion go way back to season 1, when Bronn agreed to be Tyrion's champion during his trial by combat at The Vale. The two became good friends and Bronn accompanied Tyrion to King's Landing, where he served as Tyrion's bodyguard. However, things took a turn in season 4, when Bronn told Tyrion that he wouldn't serve as Tyrion's champion in another trial by combat, this time against the Mountain.

Since then, Tyrion has traveled across the Narrow Sea and found new purpose as the Hand of Daenerys. Meanwhile, Bronn has buddied up with Tyrion's brother, Jaime (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau). He taught Jaime how to fight again after losing his hand, and Bronn traveled with Jaime to Dorne to rescue his daughter, Myrcella. Bronn also accompanied Jaime to Riverrun to help end the rebellion of "Blackfish" Tully.

However, Tyrion is officially back in Westeros, and could soon cross paths with Bronn again. There's a chance that Bronn feels guilty for abandoning Tyrion during his time of need, but Bronn isn't prone to regret. Still, there's no denying that he and Tyrion have a great rapport and a long history. Seeing Tyrion so passionate about something might be enough to make a convert out of him.
