We all screamed with Oberyn Martell as The Mountain crushed his skull, along with all of our hopes and dreams. But now that a few weeks have passed, it’s not too soon to have a laugh about it.
Buzzfeed gave Pedro Pascal the chance to exact his revenge and indulge in a little food crushing therapy, which resulted in some hilarious gifs. Pedro does to blueberries, cupcakes, and a tomato what he should have done to The Mountain. But he spares the banana.
Click through to Buzzfeed for all of the gifs, it’s worth it.
On a little more serious note, Vulture caught up with Pedro at the Public Theater Annual Gala this week. Pedro had refused to watch the Season 4 finale of Game of Thrones in a “compromised manner,” so his reaction to the big episode has been a bit delayed. After finally getting the chance to watch it, he says that it was “astonishing.” He shares his favorite scene, and what he is looking forward to in Season 5:
Which parts did you enjoy?
Well, I thought the fight between Brienne and the Hound was, like, the most mind-blowing battle that I have ever seen — and that’s saying a lot coming from me. It was the most visceral … if visceral experiences can be surpassed on a show like that, I feel like it was by the end of the tenth episode. I was just absolutely breathless in excitement. And the amount of events that actually sort of exploded, one after the other, was just astonishing. It’s amazing to kind of see the show outdo itself in a way.
What are you hoping to see next season?
I’m really curious about everyone going to Dorne. I would love to see what happens with my character’s daughters. And I would like to go and see what beautiful things Indira Varma will be doing as Ellaria Sand. You know, in carrying my legacy, hopefully.
