Game of Thrones Theory: Have We Seen The Last of The Hound? Maybe Not!
A character that “Game of Thrones” fans love to hate, and hate to love is Sandor Clegane. It would appear that his character is dead, but that might not be the case.
At the end of season four of the show Sandor Clegane (the Hound) faced off against Brienne of Trath and looked like he fell to his doom. He asked Aria to kill him to put him out of his misery, but not one to let go of a grudge, Aria decided to let him suffer.
Did he suffer? Or is it possible that the Hound is still alive? Maybe he’s still wandering Westeros waiting for his big moment.
What would that big moment be? Facing off against his brother, Gregor Clegane aka the Mountiain, aka the Mountain that Rides, aka Franken-mountain.
There has been a popular theory that these two brothers will face off against each other in one final battle that either ends one, or both their lives. Search for it online as the Clegane Bowl. They believe that Cersei will use Franken-mountain in her trial by combat, and that somehow the Hound will be his opponent. A lot would need to happen in order for this to take place, but that’s the jist of it.
We saw that the Mountain was brought back to life. The Hound has said before that he’s the only one allowed to kill the Mountain. Also don’t forget about the Lord of Light bringing people back to life. When the Hound was taken hostage by the Brotherhood without Banners Beric Dondarrion told him that the Lord of Light was not finished with him yet. So even if he did die, maybe he was brought back to life all Galdalf style because he had unfinished business.
Also, there are reports that the actor who plays the Hound, Rory McCann, was spotted in Belfast. So there’s that.
