The last time we saw Ser Davos Seaworth he had come up with an idea to assist his King, and with the help of Shireen, had penned a letter to the Iron Bank of Braavos. In this week’s preview we learned that not only will he cross the Narrow Sea with Stannis to visit the city, we’ll see the debut of Sherlock’s Mark Gatiss as Tycho Nestoris.
Davos and Stannis will come face to face with the new character, and in an interview with Access Hollywood, Liam Cunningham says that working with Gatiss was a delight. “He’s a fantastic actor. … So to be in a scene with him was an absolute joy, an absolutely a privilege.”
Liam also speaks more about Davos’ “eureka moment” and what we can expect to see because of it.
“Stannis quite rightly says, ‘Who have we got on our side?’ and I point out a couple of the banner families, and he basically looks at me and goes, ‘That’s it? You need to redouble your efforts.’ However, with very little to go on, we’ve lost everything. We’ve lost… 30 ships that we got off Salladhor Saan. Our coffers are extremely diminished, so the only way to do this is to go to the people who finance the Lannisters, who are financing King’s Landing, and that involves getting in touch, somehow or other, with the big guns, with the Lehmans. … as in the bank that went bang here. Lehman Brothers. Goldman Sachs. That’s actually who we’re gonna have to go and see. Something’s gotta be done, so we’ll have to talk to the powers that be in Braavos, which is, of course, going to be one of the most impressive sights that we’ve seen on this show, and we’ve never seen it before.”
