Season 3 brings with it the re-introduction of Salladhor Saan, a pirate friend of Davos who enjoys little more than the company of a good woman or two. He made his first appearance in Season 2's second episode, but then disappears completely for the remainder of the season... until he pops up again in Season 3's premiere.

Here he turns up to rescue Davos, who survived the wreckage on Blackwater, and helps take him back to the shore. It's a nice reminder of his existence which, heading into Season 8, it's very easy to forget about. He disappears again after this episode, comes back in Season 4 for another one-off appearance, and then is gone for good, apparently, barring a last-minute return in Season 8.

Salladhor Saan is Azor Ahai confirmed.
