Won his first melee when he was 13, knighted by Arthur Dayne (GOAT knight candidate) at the age of 15 after he proved himself on the battlefield.

If you were placing Drogo and The Mountain into a battle, you know the Mountain is coming with armor on. That's what you have to expect going in.. however, seeing the Red Viper destroy Gergor makes an interesting case for Drogo. With his speed he might be able to hit the soft spots of The Mountains armor like the RV did.

The things against Drogo are, the RV did this with a spear and stayed well outside of The Mountains reach. Drogo would have to get close, Drogo may have never been defeated but he definitely got nicked in battle before, and I imagine a nick from Gregor would be about as much a regular swing from someone lesser than Gregor.


i like drogo and all but the problem he will have is that his curved sword he uses is alot shorter then the viper's spear, and probably shorter then the mountain's sword as well. drogo will have to come in alot closer then the viper did and will be alot more susceptible to getting hit.

I love this show. The Dragon queen is sexy and Dinklage kills it. I hope we get into some action tonight after a calm first episode.

I'm so confused at what's going on. Too many characters. So many people look alike too.

I'll summarize the new characters.

The Brotherhood: These are the guys who gave Arya and her friends dinner. They are a group of knights that were sent by Ned Stark in season 1 to find The Mountain and kill him for pillaging villages and killing innocent common folk.

Their loyalty is to King Robert and Ned Stark. Even though both are dead they continue to travel the country side in their name trying to protect the common folk from both sides of the war. This explains why their name is The Brotherhood With Out Banners, because the leaders they were loyal too are dead.


Howland/Meera Reed: The Reed siblings are the two kids who met up with Bran Stark. Their father is Howland Reed. He was one of Ned Starks closest friends and saved his life during Roberts Rebellion. He was not introduced in the show but he was talked about.

His son, Jojen, told Bran that he has the same ability as him to see history in his dreams and enter the mind of animals. He told him he used his power to see that Ned Stark was killed. When he told his father Howland Reed, he was devasted about his good friends death, so he sent his children to find Bran Stark and protect him.

So if Jaime wasn't shackled and weakened from starvation, would it be safe to assume that he would've wrecked Brienne? Even without his armor?
