The intense drama and shocking conclusion to the battle between the Mountain and the Red Viper justifiably overshadowed the setting. Seriously though, how awesome was the arena that they fought in?
I have not read far enough into the books to know if there are any more trials by combat coming to King’s Landing. It would seem Tyrion has already played that card one time too many times.
I need more of the King’s Landing combat arena in my life. It is far too splendid to be a one off set piece. I’d like to suggest to the producers some real world alternative uses for their grand construction.
The arena would obviously make a great venue for the next big UFC fight. How much more excited would you be for the Weidman vs Machida fight if the octagon was set in the middle of the floor, on top of the dual Lannister and Baratheon sigils. Dana White could sit with Lord Tywin and compare who has more money and power. Floyd Mayweather is the consummate showman. I'm sure he’d relish fighting...
