    WARNING: Plot details from the Game of Thrones Season 7 finale, The Dragon and the Wolf, lie ahead.

    ‘Let’s get ready to rumbleeeee’ – OK, maybe not quite yet, but the long-awaited and highly-anticipated Cleganebowl is coming. At least, according to the Hound.

    The Hound made his way to King’s Landing with Dany, Jon, and company to convince Team Cersei that the Army of the Dead is real, and that the living better team up unless they want to become Wights/White Walkers themselves.

    At that meeting, Sandor ‘The Hound’ Clegane came face to face with his zombie brother, Gregor ‘The Mountain’ Clegane. You know, the brother who burned the Hound’s face, in effect instilling a lifelong fear of fire in him.


    Fans have theorised for some time that the two brothers would eventually face off in an epic fight called Cleganebowl.

    With this King’s Landing confrontation and only one season left for the series, Cleganebowl is as close to becoming a reality as ever.

    ‘Remember me? Yeah, you do’ the Hound said to his brother in the dragon pit. ‘You’re even fucking uglier than I am now. What did they do to you? Doesn’t matter. It’s not how it ends for you, brother. You know who’s coming for you. You’ve always known.’


    ‘Just as Euron is not someone to wait his turn, the Hound is not somebody who is going to let this person, or thing, or whatever he is now walk by him unchallenged,’ show runner D.B. Weiss said of the Hound’s motivations in HBO’s Inside the Episode.

    Now, all this isn’t a guarantee that Cleganebowl is going down. But, we can’t imagine that the Hound would talk all that shit and not follow through.

    So, Game of Thrones fans, brace yourselves for impact.
