Phew, got worried a bit there, nice comeback from Da Mountain! (crouching monkey hidden gorilla). Brute strength owns slippery & cocky oberyn.

I think tyrion won’t die.. Its a devastating death, both the mountain and the viper died at the same time. So devastating.. If really tyrion is sentenced to death, his brother jaime will run with him. Dessert kings landing for the life of his dear brother.

Oberyn should have lived through the entire combat. Tywin twists the concept of a trial by champions so that he can achieve his desired end, the death of his son, Tyrion. What rubbish!!! Long live Tyrion—he needs to kill his father and claim the throne. Period!!!! Now the big question is becoming whether the Night’s Watch can hold The Wall against the Wyldlings.

As much I liked Oberyn his hate already destroyed a lot of him. That is made clear by almost every sentence he spoke. And how he suffered. Because of that, the end of him is..perfect. He could finally unleashe all the hate in him and in pure irony of the author he even get what he wanted: the mountain cofessed his crime. How could the raging Oberyn continue from there without beeing killed from Tywin like a mad dog? Oberyns death (and life) make clear that relying on hate leads to self destruction I think that is the message we should understand. And even Oberyns death was brutal und painfull, at least he has no longer to suffer.

I relly hate this show sometimes. Rule one: if you like a character and they deserve their revenge then they’re going to die and you shouldn’t like them because they’re going to die and its going to crush you ( absolutely no pun intended seriously). I was emotionally and physically ill at the end of this episode. I also want to object to the characterisation of their flight as being ” even ” Oberyn absolutely smoked the mountain. Sure, there were a few times when he got hit or whatever but it wasn’t even. Oberyn made a fool of the mountain, that made it that much worse. R.I.P Prince Oberyn.

i was totally shocked at oberyn’s lack of not paying attention to see if he was actually dead. although i felt it was an even fight and tyrion should be let go. i doubt that will happen. hopefully he escapes some how. sansa and arya along with dany are the strongest women. they will eventually get their revenge

I have to be honest, this episode was insane… BUT about Tyrion and The Mountain’s fight, who knows what could happen? Here’s my prediction – Now, never have they went in to say what happens in a Trial by Combat if both characters die, and there is NO WAY The Mountain will live through that rule. I think that the day that Tywin stops completely ruling over might end, I think that if The Mountain dies as a result of the wounds that Oberyn gave him, then he may be overthrown in court. Never did anybody say what would happen if BOTH people die, so is it possible he could be overthrown? Think about it.. Hmm..

What are the rules of combat to judge the guilt or innocence of the accused? If both combatants die it seems the Gods have rendered a neutral verdict…

EXACTLY what I just posted up above, didn’t notice until now that you put it as well, but it’s true! Never have I heard anybody say anything about BOTH of the combatants dying, but it happened.. Like I said up above, maybe Twin will be overthrown for once? I don’t think Tyrion is going to die. And I certainly hope not!

Well the trouble is that Oberyn died first. Whoever dies first loses the combat. Even if the Mountain was dead, he died a few seconds too late.

Gruesome as it was, there was a beauty in the scene. Georges characters often meet fates that are a result of their weaknesses. This was no exception. His thirst for poetic justice overcomes him and he makes a grave, unintelligent mistake in the fight. Horrific but predictable.

That being said, it really did make me want to puke.

Can’t believe you don’t like Jorah, how much he has done for her is crazy!
The death scene was one of the most violent things I have ever seen, I couldn’t sleep.

I couldn’t sleep either!! That was INSANE I can’t believe what just happened… And Jorah on the other hand – I hate to see him leave Daenarys’ side to be honest, but I really can’t believe he was a spy either, I don’t think anybody saw that coming? What do you think will happen now? He’ll go to King’s Landing maybe? I kinda wonder how he would get there though..
