Fan Video Gives That GAME OF THRONES Moment the Re-Edit We All Crave

We all know by now that famous saying, right? “If you think this has a happy ending, you haven’t been paying attention.” We know, we know: Game of Thrones is a violent world where all men must die and those deaths — hoo boy — will they ever be gruesome and horrifying. That’s why we were all so crushed (whoa word choice, Lutes) when we saw (spoilers!) Oberyn Martell get himself good and dead-ed by The Mountain during Sunday’s episode of the HBO series, “The Mountain and The Viper.” In fact, no one can stop talking about it! Particularly not the Internet, especially those who felt personally violated by the loss of one of the best characters in Westeros.

We’re all so used to getting what we want out of television and movies. Satisfying endings where characters find true love and live happily ever after, following their hero’s journey to victory, vindication, and the end. We have been programmed to expect this — but George R.R. Martin doesn’t give a shit in that regard, and will kill your darlings (and his) to make his valar morghulis-ified point.

That didn’t stop YouTuber Ozzy Man from going the extra mile and re-cutting that final scene. Adding Hans Zimmer music and a few other teeny-tiny changes and suggestions, Ozzy Man has given the Internet a bit of a proverbial salve by denying the facts of what happened with a little bit of movie magic. (And the all-too-needed suggestion of MORE SER POUNCE.) It is, in a phrase, simply the best.

What else would you add to your own re-edit of the scene? Let us know in the comments.

    omg this made me happy <3 thank youuuu i didn’t want Oberyn to die he was a good man

  2. PJ Lowry says:

    The good guys don’t have to win all the time… but would it kill Martin to throw them a bone?

  3. book reader says:

    Read the books and stop being crybabys about what happened in the show!

    • Meerp says:

      No thanks, I’ll read the books after, or else I’ll end up over-analyzing the show and not enjoying it, then going online and being a douche to those who’d rather watch the show first.

  4. Jen says:

    Is anyone else bemused by the Inigo Montoya-ness of Oberyn’s confession mongering?

    • menchi says:

      “My name is Oberyn Inigo Montoya Martell. You killed my sister. Her name was Elia. You raped her, and killed her children. Prepare to die!”

  5. Oberyn didn’t WANT the Mountain dead until he got the confession! That was WHY he didn’t confirm the kill!

  6. Mel says:

    During that scene I quite genuinely felt myself fall into a nightmare. It did not seem real, like there must be a flaw with reality, there was something horribly wrong with the moment that not even my slight bemusement at the Red Wedding could compare.
    This really was EXTREMELY soothing.

  7. Still waiting for the edit where they replace the swords with lightsabers.

  8. This popped up on my social media pages twice before I worked up the nerve to watch it.  Now I’m glad I did.

  9. Charles says:

    I’m not sure Martin has “Happy ending” in his vocabulary.

  10. Kristen says:

    In a strange way, this made me feel better about the episode. Like the denial-part of my brain latched onto it and accepted it as reality. Yes, more Ser Pounce!

    • iria says:

      indeed i accepted it cause its game of thrones. but if they kill lord tyrion, they wont be forgiven! period!
