After watching the episodes, viewers discuss pivotal scenes on forums, with some recently debating Oberyn Martell final show on Reddit.

The showdown was an important part of the series as Oberyn hated the Mountain for slaughtering his relatives and raping his sister.

He had come very close to defeating his incredibly tall opponent, but was brutally murdered when he let his guard down, trying to get the Mountain to confess to his crimes.

It is this scene Game of Thrones fans agonised over on Reddit, with some claiming there was a huge plot hole to have been made when Oberyn’s skull was crushed by the Mountain.

One frustrated commentator opened the debate by suggesting Oberyn was too “smart” to be defeated by the Mountain.

They said: “If the mountain is alive enough to think and answer the question: he is alive enough to kill you. Therefore kill him.”

The person added: “What did you hope to accomplish: mountain telling you that Tywin gave the order in front of 300 people and inside of Tywin's city? You would never leave alive and the confession would be worth nothing.
