    The thought of "what if Pod stayed behind" kind of amuses me in this scenario. I just think it would be pretty awesome had Pod volunteered as Tyrion's champion and just obliterated The Mountain, leaving everyone shocked. I know that wouldn't make any sense though.

    He's already been an unsuspecting champion in the bedroom, I'd say let him have a go at the mountain.

    We haven't really seen Gregor kill anything besides horses. His abilities are massively overrated, imo.

    Sure, we haven't seen any, but what about all the tales of burning fields and slaying men and raping women and slaughtering children?

    That's kind of harsh to the four guys he butchered in the last episode.

    So today I overheard my boss and the president of my company (my boss's boss) talking about this show, the differences between the books and the show in particular. They're both in their 50s... It was surreal.

    Last episode didn't get 8.5 million viewers on the night it aired for nothing!

    I'm sorry but did you somehow miss the part where almost every single character in the show basically trouts their pants at the mere mention of his name?

    Which is moreso because of his size than him actually killing anybody. I forgot about him slaughtering people at the start of the last episode, you'll have to excuse me for my not so superior memory.

    Anyway, I say that as a book reader of all the books, and I don't retract my statement one bit. He's overrated.

    Well, one way to look at today is:

    "There's a new Game of Thrones next week!"

    Nah, Bronn wouldn't be fooled by a big guy. Big guy would be easy for someone like Bronn to kill. If Bronn's almost certain The Mountain would slaughter him, Clegane's reputation must be deserved.

    It's not just Gregor Clegane's size. For one, he's a remorseless psycho killer. We've heard the story of him burning his brother's face off because he borrowed a toy. We've heard how he raped and murdered Elia Targaryen and smashed her babies' heads against a wall. Last episode he was like "Who am I going to kill?" "Does it matter?" "Nah." People are afraid of him because he seems to enjoy raping and killing people. He's insane and sadistic. The book has a lot of pretty horrible stories of other stuff he did. One story says he killed one of his own soldiers because he snored too much.

    And he has a high position in the kingdom thanks to the Lannisters, which is even scarier, because he wanders around with a little army of like-minded people doing whatever he wants. Who has the authority to stop him? Ned Stark tried to have him arrested, and he killed the people sent to take him in. It's been nothing but rumors of war crimes since then. Recall in that joust scene, after decapitating his horse, he almost murdered Ser Loras right in front of the king and everyone. Who could get away with that kind of stuff except him?

    It's his size/strength plus his standing in the kingdom plus his lack of compunction that combine to make him a scary guy. There isn't a lot of on-screen or in-person stuff involving him in the show or the books, but in my opinion that makes him seem worse, because a lot is left up to imagination.
