SAN DIEGO, June 1, 2014 – After waiting two weeks for a new episode, “Game of Thrones” fans will be rewarded with nothing less than an epic duel to decide the fate of Tyrion Lannister.
There are several storylines in the episode Sunday night, and we know it’s important to find out what is happening to Sansa Stark Lannister, and The Hound and Arya. But fans want to get right to what should be one of the highlights of Season 4: the trial by combat between The Mountain, Ser Gregor Clegane, and The Red Viper, Prince Oberyn Martell.
At the end of the last episode, Prince Oberyn stepped forward and told Tyrion he would face The Mountain on his behalf, because it offers him the opportunity to avenge the murder by Glegane of his sister, Elia.
As Oberyn’s lover Ellaria Sand says so well in the preview, “You’re going to fight THAT?” The Mountain is the biggest, meanest SOB in Westeros. It will be no cake walk for Oberyn to set things right, but if anyone can do it, it’s the Dornish prince who is known as a formidable warrior himself, and a very smart one. It will take ever bit of Oberyn’s wit to defeat the might of the Mountain.
