More details of the duel between the Hound, Sandor Clegane (Rory McCann), and the Mountain that Rides, Ser Gregor Clegane (Conan Stevens). Gregor’s armor is also not the plate armor described in the seris. In fact, it seems a very literal take on the “plate over mail” armor often described in the books. Of course, in the series, this is generally describing the early to middle era of plate armor, particularly in the time span of the Hundred Years War. This looks like metal plates riveted over a hauberk of mail. Both Cleganes have plate reinforcements.
