An intense trial by combat between Gregor Clegene and Oberyn Tyrell is the highlight of this dramatic episode. Aptly titled The Mountain and the Viper, it is not only one of the most gruesome death in the series history but also one of the most heartbreaking.

Oberyn’s needless taunting, instead of killing the Mountain when he had the chance, becomes the death of him and foreshadows an unlucky fate, albeit much less gruesome, for Tryion Lannister.
