"Who would pass the Bloody Gate?"
―Donnel Waynwood to Petyr Baelish[src]

Donnel Waynwood is a recurring character in the fourth season, debuting in "First of His Name". He is played by Alisdair Simpson. Ser Donnel Waynwood is a knight of House Waynwood and serves House Arryn as the Knight of the Gate, commander of the Bloody Gate.


Season 4Edit

Ser Donnel is at the Gate when lord Petyr Baelish and Sansa Stark arrive. Littlefinger introduces Sansa as his niece, Alayne. Donnel believes him and lets them pass.[1]

When Sandor Clegane and Arya Stark reaches the Bloody Gate and Donnel orders them to stop, Sandor tells him who they are expecting ransom for reuniting Arya with her aunt Lysa Arryn. After Donnel explains that Lysa died three days ago, Sandor is left in shock while Arya bursts out in laughter, because of the irony.[2]
