The Hound is definitely back in “Game of Thrones” Season 6. Is it time for ‘Cleganebowl?’
The most recent episode of “Game of Thrones” Season 6 gave way to the return of Sandor Clegane and for a moment, everyone thought that he has finally given up his violent ways. Fortunately, though, that wasn’t the case as his little piece of heaven was mercilessly destroyed by the Brotherhood without Banners. As he picks up an ax one thing is for certain, the Hound is back.
So what does this mean for the whole “CleganeBowl” theory? Well considering that Septon Ray left us hanging, (get it?) it seems that him sending Sandor Clegane as the Faith’s champion is now unlikely. However, some of Ray’s views might have rubbed off on him, sure he’s back to his old ways but this time, he isn’t killing people due to orders, he’s killing to protect the innocent, probably.
If The Hound did become a crusader for justice, chances are he will eventually find his way to King’s Landing where, by the looks of things, Cersei Lannister and Gregor Clegane are making quite a ruckus. The timing of his return in “Game of Thrones” is too good for it to be coincidence and many others see it too.
The ‘CleganeBowl’ subreddit’s more than 10,000 subscribers believe it that the brothers will slug it out eventually. Memes abound for the epic rematch between the Clegane brothers’ that will definitely end with one of them being six feet under.
While the whole theory of him being sent by Ray as the Faith’s Champion to fight in Cersei Lannister’s trial by combat, was just that, a theory, there is no proof that he will not fight Gregor Clegane in such a manner. There is still a possibility that he will be called upon to confront his brother as champion .
This time though, there is still a shortage of clues regarding Sandor Clegane’s activities after the slaughter of Ray’s commune. The trailer only shows him hacking the head of a man, possibly a member of the Brotherhood without Banners.
In any case, the rematch between the Cleganes will be one hell of a fight. We already got a teaser way back in season 1 when the two crossed swords at the Tourney of the Hand.
A zombified Gregor or a newly revitalized Sandor who will triumph in the much awaited ‘CleganeBowl’, The Mountain or The Hound? Watch Game of Thrones season 6 only on HBO.
