Game of Thrones season 6 is almost here and Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson aka The Mountain has teased the most popular ASOIAF fan theory after R+L=J- The Cleganebowl, on his Instagram account.
** Spoilers and speculation ahead **
Ian McShane has virtually confirmed the return of The Hound in a series of revealing interviews recently which has led fans to speculate a showdown between the Clegane brothers in a trial by combat, where Cersei will choose The Mountain as her champion and The Hound will represent The Faith.
Now, Björnsson has teased the showdown aka The Cleganebowl in an Instagram post where he uploaded a fan art depicting a fight between Sandor and Gregor Clegane, asking his followers- ‘Who would wanna see this fight happen?’ Check it out:
This is not the first time that a Game of Thrones star has teased an upcoming season on Instagram. In fact, Lena Headey trolled the fans by uploading an image of stones in the shape of a heart before season 4 finale, which led many to speculate the return of resurrected form of Catelyn Stark- Lady Stoneheart, which of course never happened. Considering that The Mountain is now Cersei’s personal bodyguard, I’d take this tease with a grain of salt!
