Sounds Like GAME OF THRONES’ Cleganebowl Won’t Happen This Season

After a Game of Thrones centered on a daring (and possibly foolish) trek beyond the Wall, Sandor “The Hound” Clegane managed to return safely. Because the Hound isn’t dead, or even undead, our dream of a Cleganebowl is still alive! We’ve been thinking about the final confrontation between the Hound and his meaner, older brother, Gregor “The Mountain” Clegane, since their short duel in the first season. And while the Clegane brothers may finally be in the same place in the upcoming season finale, it doesn’t look like our prayers to the Seven will be answered this year.

While speaking with Entertainment Weekly, Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson – the man who has portrayed the Mountain since season 4 – said that the Cleganebowl is something that he would like to see. “And for most of the fans, it’s something they’re all waiting for,” added Björnsson. “It looks like it’s going to go that way, but who knows?”

Björnsson also shared his belief that the Mountain would easily defeat his brother. “I haven’t seen it yet in my head how I would kill him, but somehow I would smash his head or kill him like that,” related Björnsson. “I think the fight would be quick rather than something long. I think people would be expecting a big fight but I would finish him really fast. It would be a surprise to people.”

Respectfully, we think that the Hound would put up a better fight than that. During their brief duel in the first season, the Mountain clearly had the advantage of size and strength. But the Hound is a ruthless fighter and we wouldn’t ever bet against him. Although to be honest, we’d be surprised if either brother walked away from the Cleganebowl alive. Is the Mountain alive now?
