2. Clegane Bowl

In terms of Game of Thrones theories, you would be hard-pressed to find one that draws such a passionate response than the theory about Clegane Bowl.

Here’s the origins: Sandor and Gregor Clegane, known as The Hound and The Mountain, respectively, are brothers. They’re big, they’re bad, and they absolutely hate each other.

Both brothers were thought to be dead. Both brothers, in the sixth season, were revealed to be alive. And while The Hound was off farming his life away (with a character played by Ian “T*ts and Dragons” McShane), The Mountain returned to defend Cersei Lannister. (The Mountain also reportedly has the head of Joffrey Baratheon, which is kind of gross.)

While they may be apart, their hatred for each other hasn’t subsided in the least. Since war is coming to Westeros, the two brothers will face off again. And in terms of Clegane Bowl, that means these two huge men will be fighting, literally, onto the death.

As an aside, if you’re really interested in finding out about Clegane Bowl, just punch it into the search bar on Twitter. There are tons of competitions relating to Clegane Bowl, complete with betting pools. Not bad for two otherwise minor characters!
