While traveling to the Twins, Sandor Clegane and Arya Stark encounter Ser Donnel and his outriders.[2] They manage to trick Donnel with their peasant disguises. When Arya asks Sandor why Donnel did not recognize him, Sandor tells her it is because knights are fools and it would be beneath him to look twice at some poxy peasants.[2]
