Did The New Game of Thrones Trailer Just Confirm a Fan-Favorite Theory?
We know season 7 is going to be a big one for the Hound. Actor Rory McCann (who plays the character) said this was the most physically grueling season for him. Plus, the season 7 trailer may have just confirmed something big in the character development that we've all been waiting for. That's right, Cleganebowl is probably happening.
For those of you that don't know, Cleganebowl is the fan theory that at some point there will be an epic showdown between the Clegane brothers: Sandor "The Hound" and the now-zombified Gregor "The Mountain". The two hate each other, with Gregor pushing Sandor's face in the fire when they were children, and both happen to be two of the best fighters in Westeros.
How do we know Cleganebowl will happen? It's all about that short clip in the 2nd trailer released yesterday.
Although the sun obscures his face, we're pretty certain it's the Hound drawing his sword in the Dragon Pit outside King's Landing.
Why would they be fighting? We know The Hound is on the Starks' side now, as we see him fighting with Jon north of the Wall. The Mountain is obviously on the Lannister side, as he was zombified by Qyburn and basically made into a glorified body guard for Cersei.
The only thing we're not sure of is the timeline. The camera obscures the Hound for a reason, so it may be a flashback. Plus, we know the Hound is north of the Wall season 7, so how could he get to King's Landing?
Game of Thrones still has a lot of questions to answer.
