What happened to the Hound in Game of Thrones?
The Hound, played by Rory McCann, is a popular character in the HBO series “Game of Thrones” (GoT). He is a ruthless warrior, loyal companion and a man of few words. But in the final season of GoT, the Hound’s fate is left largely unknown. Here’s a look at what may have happened to the Hound and his ultimate fate.
The Hound and Daenerys
In the lead-up to the Battle of Winterfell in Season 8, the Hound teams up with Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) and her forces. He fights bravely in the battle, but is left wounded and unable to continue. It is unclear what happened to the Hound during this time, as his fate was left largely unknown.
The Battle at King’s Landing
Later in the season, the Hound makes an unlikely alliance with Arya Stark (Maisie Williams) and helps her in her mission to save Bran (Isaac Hempstead-Wright). The two eventually make it to King’s Landing, where they join forces with the forces of the North and the Unsullied in the battle against Cersei Lannister (Lena Headey).
The Hound likely fought bravely in the battle, but his fate is once again left unclear. It is unclear if he died in the fighting or was taken prisoner by Cersei.
What We Know
We know that the Hound is still alive at the end of the series, since he is briefly seen in one of the final scenes. But what happened to the Hound during the course of the war is largely unknown. It is possible that he died in battle, was taken prisoner by Cersei, or has simply gone into hiding.
The Future of the Hound
Most fans agree that the Hound will likely continue to have a major role in future GoT stories. It’s possible that he will still be alive in George R. R. Martin’s planned book series, and he may even appear in a potential HBO spinoff series.
Until then, we can only speculate about the Hound’s ultimate fate. Whatever happened to the Hound in Game of Thrones is sure to have been a thrilling adventure.
