All the people of Kings Lansing are there to watch the fight.  Tyrion sees Prince Oberyn and he is drinking and he tells him he should not drink.  In walks Gregor Clegane and he is a giant.

The proceedings begin, the battle will determine Tyrion’s guilt or innocence.  The fight begins Prince Oberyn does a lot of showing off and then tells Clegane that he is the brother of the women Clegane raped and murdered.  He wants Clegane to admit that he killed his sister and her children.

Prince Oberyn stabs Clegane and as he stabs him he continues to accuse him of killing his sister’s children.  Instead of finishing him off he pulls the sword out of Clegane and tries to get him to admit he killed his sister and his sister’s children.

As Prince Oberyn walks around Clegane, Clegane grabs Prince Oberyn and gets on top of him,  he pushes Prince Oberyn’s eyes out and then puts his skull between his hands as he admits he killed and raped Prince Oberyn’s sister and his sister’s children and he squashes Prince Oberyn’s head like a ripe peach.  Yuck!!!

Tywin Lannister stands up and says, “The Gods have spoken – Tyrion Lannister you are guilty and sentenced to death!”

The END!
