We May Be in Mourning, But Pedro Pascal Is Just Fine

Two days out, and we still can’t stop talking of the brutal last two minutes of “The Mountain and The Viper.”  The fight itself was delightful, and the aftermath… well, even for a show with as violent a track record as Game of Thrones, it was capital B Brutal; not to mention hubristic — so hubristic, in fact, that if you listen hard enough, you can hear the mournful whisper of the fans, saying “If only, if only…”

Anyway, while the whole GoT fandom mourns (even book readers who knew it was coming still felt the acute sting of losing Prince Oberyn), it looks like actor Pedro Pascal is doing just fine: he even posed (shirtless!) with Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson (AKA The Mountain AKA Ser Gregor Clegane) and posted the pic on Instagram, alongside the simple caption: “Buds.”

We’re glad Pascal can find it in his heart to make light of the situation!  Hopefully, someday, we will too.
