    We Need To Talk About The Hound On "Game Of Thrones"

    #TeamHound

    In a show like Game of Thrones, where characters often have ambiguous morals, it can be tough to decide who the real hero is.

    HBO

    And when you find someone you like, they go and get their skull smashed in or something.

    Would you say the hero is Jon Snow? Daenerys Targaryen? Maybe Hot Pie is the one true hero?

    No, the true hero of Game of Thrones is the Sandor "The Hound" Clegane.

    First off, he's the only person (on the show, anyway) to say this about Joffrey out loud...

    HBO

    ...more than once.

    HBO

    He's the only person badass enough to deliver this line.

    And yet, despite his high level of badassery, he'll still make you laugh.

    HBO

    Like when he disapproved of Arya's training methods.

    HBO

    But even though he'd laugh off Arya's sword skills, he was more than willing to help her with her "list"...even though he knew he was on it.

    HBO

    Honestly, Sandor Clegane has given us many words of wisdom to live by.

    HBO

    He's intimidating as all hell. Remember when he dropped this burn on Bronn?

    HBO

    But just when you think he's an outright bastard, he goes and breaks your heart with the story of his disfigurement.

    HBO

    Or he says something about Arya that makes you think there's a good person underneath that gruff exterior.

    HBO

    And then that reminds you that these were his last words to Sansa, and maybe you tear up a little for your problematic fave.

    HBO

    So here's hoping that the true hero of Game of Thrones is still alive and well.
