I was wondering who you thought would end up being the champion for the faith in Cersie's trial.Who do you think will end up fighting Robert Strong?Also what do you think will happen?

I hope it's the hound who fights him.

First he will smash someone for the faith...I am guessing Lancel. This i think will put Cersi/tommon at risk. Maybe even be the vanenquor Eventually though it has to be Sandor/monk for the finish.

I was actually wondering if Lancel may be the one to fight him.Maybe he thinks it's the best way for him to repent for his crimes.

I really think both happen. Frankengregor pastes Lancel...maybe a few other people. Then Sandor hears word of his brother still being alive and sets out to settle all family buisness.

I doubt that it's Loras for several reasons, but mainly because Margery has chosen a trial by judges. I agree with it being Lancel though.

I like your thought process here, this is the main reason I hope Sandor is still alive.

its Lancel his religious conversion makes him likely to be chosen his distaste for Cersei makes him likely to accept the challenge besides how would Sandor get from the Quiet Isle to Kings Landing in time for the trial also How would Sandor know that Robert Strong is UnGregor when literally no one knows...I think that Sandor Clegane still lives but the Hound is dead, so dont expect to see him picking up swords anytime soon

Couldn't someone end up fighting him and lose and Sandor gets word of this and figures out it his brother,then he decides to go and fight him.

I like the Lancel idea for Cersei's trial.

Sandor can fight him later.

Maerge didn't choose trial by combat.

I'm going to guess Ser Theodan the True. But Ser Robert Strong will probably kill the pious fool.

Who will fight Robert the Strong is an interesting guessing game, but there's a possibility of background hanky-panky. Varys being behind the scenes has an interest. Does he want the incompetent Cersei to remain in charge or does he want her removed to sow further confusion? It's within his capabilities to neutralize Robert's handlers i.e. Qyburn & Associates and we don't know to what extent Robert can operate independently. He might fold like a string-cut puppet.

I feel a bit sorry for Lancel and his guilty conscience. Tyrion was a bit too rough on him, IMHO. Maybe a little envy snuck in there?

Well, I was thinking if that would be the likely exit, the way to kill off the characters of Lancel or Loras.

Because Robert Strong will kill them. They are not Oberyn. Although I give Loras more props then Lancel. However, Loras said himself he was good with a lance and his brother a better sword. Lance not needed here. They are not jousting.

Cersei is already on the Tyrell shit list. Margaery, and then Loras dies to her champion? Wouldn't be good for her even if she passes.

Lancel is one of her own. Her uncle/family will not be happy either. I would think now they'd rather not risk Lancel for her.

Not sure here. People will surmise what Robert is and hate her even more for not fighting fair with her "creature." Oh, it will get out in time.

Sandor seems best candidate still.

Yeah it seems like that dude was introduced to be fish food in the trial, but I've wondered to what extent Qyburn holds sway over UnGregor. Still, I don't see UnGregor being brought down at the very outset of Winds. The implication at the end of Dance was Cersei is gonna fuck some shit up before she goes down. I doubt she'll lose the trial.

And Sandor...doing both?

Fighting Ungregor and saving his bird? Spreading the guy out too much. I guess it could happen but that is a lot of screen time.

Osney and Lancel are her accusers, or at least that what it says in the book index of ADWD. I've always thought it would be Ser Osney Kettleblack who would have to face him.

I was thinking it would probably end up being Lancel too, he's with the Faith and they're prosecuting, he probably sees it as his duty/penance because of his role in Cersei's plotting, fits pretty well.

Of course, it could just as easily be some random fool from the ranks of the Stars and Swords who's just introduced for the fight and quickly dispatched to move the plot along like Oznak zo Pahl or Ser Vardis Egen were
