This entire episode was fanfiction. Literally nothing happened like it did in the books. Even the fight was different. There was no using the light to blind the Mountain, no shields, Oberyn was jumping around like a fairy instead of fighting tactically...the end was surprisingly accurate though.
SPOILERS FOR MOUNTAIN'S FATE:
The venom turns the blood in Clegane's body black and any leeches that touch him die instantly. His piss is full of pus, and the venom eats a hole the size of a fist in Clegane's side. His screams of agony are so loud they can be heard in the entire Red Keep, and even wake several people up during the night. Qyburn states upon examining him that it is a wonder the man is still alive, to which Cersei Lannister replied,
"Gregor is a very large man. Also a very stupid one. Too stupid to know when he should die, it seems."
HE IS A VERY LARGE MAN. FOR HER.
He IS number wahn after all..
>Maybe I could take 'im. dance around until he's so tired of 'acking at me 'e dropped 'is sword. Get 'im off his feet somehow. But one misstep
>And I'm dead.
Sasuga, David and Dan.
would you rather:
die reasonably quickly by a devastating punch to the face and subsequent orbital pressure followed by obliteration of your brain case
or get poisoned, and die extremely slowly with necrosis eating your flesh, your blood turned toxic and black, your piss turned to puss and unimaginable pain throughout?
Let's assume going off of the books, the guy is nearing 8" tall and around 500 pounds, add to that the weight of his armour and the position of his hands around oberyn's face, it's possible that putting 600+ pounds of pressure on a guys face whilst squeezing it could cause the skull to simply give in.
You know how wouldn't have died fighting the mountain?
He would have saved all his smart ass remarks till after the mountain died.
baddest mother fucker in the show
But a longer reach weapon+speed?
Even Musashi Miyamoto ONLY draw was against a monk using a Jo, a 120-130 cm long baton made exactly to counter swords.
Even better if it's a fucking barren arena.
>i felt like it was more toward his father than the gods
his father is too calculated and does things for his own reasons.
Nature or God is more like the retarded kid who just acts out of chaos
they're cutting stoneheart and coldhands, aren't they?
This episode only had like 15 minutes of worthwhile development in total. I am so sick of this bullshit with daenerys holy fuck. Is she this lame and boring as fuck in the books, too? I'm just sick of her getting any screen time. I just don't care anymore. She doesn't do anything. 95% of the screen time her plot arc gets is fan service. Otherwise she's just walking around in the desert SJWing it up. Does anyone really give a fuck? I hope she dies next. Jesus fucking christ
She's "better" in the books, but she never ever does the holysaviorofdragonmother thing and since the start you can tell is going to backfire on her ass, DnD just made her really likable to the masses isntead of the mad targaryen cunt she is
>born in 1988
he's a big strong guy but with shit old man genetics holy shit he looks like he's approaching 50
Could he beat The Mountain?
No, because he's a useless cocksucker. He died for the same reason as Oberyn - being a prancing faggot and dancing too much, just from a different physical cause.
What GoT teaches us is that niggas that talk too much die fast.
If I recall correctly, in the books he doesn't do any of that crazy Donnie Yen acrobatic shit at all.
His fighting style is really cerebra, it's clear that his strategy is all about making the Mountain lose his composure and striking at weak points when his guard is down. Martin goes in pretty great detail to describe how Oberyn uses feints and pokes at Ser Gregor's shield and armor to get under his skin and leave him disoriented.
Is this accurate?
>outskilled jon snow
The faggot decided to fight someone wielding daggers while he had a bastard sword at as close range as possible.
He really could have just outranged and swinged at him if the choreographs werent so retarded.
Now imagine The Mountain in full plate in a open fucking place and using that giant sword of his against that faggot and his butterknifes.
>calling the FOOKIN LEGEND of gin alley a faggot
>uses a pair of daggers
>The mountain's sword is literally as long as he is tall
>The faggot decided to fight someone wielding daggers while he had a bastard sword at as close range as possible.
>He really could have just outranged and swinged at him if the choreographs werent so retarded.
Besides, the guy was thug and assassin. He was probably hitting niggas in the alleys, tight places, from the back, but sure as hell not in the knightly 1vs1s in full armor.
Wow, that fight was just like every time I play dark souls
>rolling and dodging all the boss' attacks
>ducking and weaving, getting hits in during their cooldowns
>get them down to a fraction of their HP
>get greedy and try to sneak in an extra attack to finish the deal
>they hit me
