This 'Game Of Thrones' Theory About The Hound Will Legit Blow Your Mind


With "Game of Thrones" "Battle of the Bastards" just days away, the fan theories are running wild. This latest theory, posted by Reddit user POL1T1CS, is unlike anything we've seen before.

This theory, which, like most theories, seems way far out there until you let it sink in for a few minutes, involves a character who just came back into our lives, Sandor "The Hound" Clegane.

Last we saw The Hound, he was chowing down with the Brotherhood without Banners, having just assisted in the hangings of the men who slaughtered the worshippers he had been living and working with.

Now, if you buy the following theory, it appears The Hound is going to play his most important role to date in "Game of Thrones."

Reddit user POL1T1CS begins his theory by pointing out the three cold openings -- when an episode starts with a scene rather than the opening credits -- we've seen on "Game of Thrones":


Now, what do all three cold openings have in common? The Hound.

POL1T1CS claims, if you believe the one prophecy, The Hound is actually Azor Ahai. According to POL1T1CS,

POL1TICS continues,

This theory holds Beric and The Hound will bump into Brienne and Pod, as all four appear to be heading north via a river. Many previously thought Lady Stoneheart would've already emerged at this point in season six, but based on the above theory, her inclusion in HBO's "Game of Thrones" seems increasingly unlikely now.

If The Hound uses the sword Oathkeeper to kill Beric Dondarrion, then this theory holds he will inherit his powers from the Lord of Light through the transferring of the flame of R'hllor. The Hound has already stated how much he admires Oathkeeper, and this would be an unbelievable bridge from the showrunners.

This is wild, sure, but George RR Martin is a crazy dude, and considering the transformation The Hound has gone through, would you really put this outside the realm of possibility?
