The Hound Has “Always Known” He Would Kill The Mountain
When The Hound makes the statement: “You’ve always known,” one reddit user took the theory of Cleganebowl to a whole other level. This fan predicted that since The Hound is able to see visions when he stares into fire, he had one as a child.
He theorized that a young Hound looked into the flames and saw a glimpse into the future — a future that has him killing his older brother.
“When he told his brother what he saw, Gregor became enraged and tried to kill him with that fire. Gregor never attacked Sandor over a toy, he tried to kill him to prevent the vision from coming true,” wrote the reddit user. “So, Gregor has been rage killing ever since because he knew he was invincible to all but Sandor. Sandor has been avoiding the flames ever since not just because of the trauma of being burned, but because the visions he saw there caused everything between the brothers.”
The final season of Game of Thrones premieres Sunday, April 14 at 9 p.m. on HBO.
