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

Let’s get ready to rumbleeeeeeeeeeeee. Okay, maybe not quite yet, but the long-awaited, highly-anticipated Cleganebowl is coming. At least, according to the Hound. So, #GETHYPE

The Hound made his way to King’s Landing with Dany, Jon, and company to convince #TeamCersei that the Army of the Dead is real, and that the living better team up unless they want to become Wights/White Walkers themselves. And 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 theorized for some time that the two brothers would 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.


We’re sure that’s exactly how the face-off was treated in the writers’ room. Or, maybe the conversation went more like this:

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.
