Here Are The Saddest Game of Thrones Deaths, Ranked
The Hound (S8E5)
Sandor Clegane, better known as The Hound, died fighting his brother Gregor — better known as The Mountain — during Daenerys’s attack on King’s Landing in the final few episodes of the series. We all knew Cleganebowl was coming sooner or later, but I think we were all hoping The Hound, lovable cynic that he is, would somehow find a way to survive. His death was especially sad, though, because he realized the only way to kill his brother was by killing himself too, and in the one way, he was most terrified of: jumping off a tower into the raging fire below, bringing Gregor with him.
