I believe we only see his actions through Tyrion’s eyes—namely, the raising of the chain that destroys Stannis’s fleet and traps the sailors in the burning waters (and, in a sense, contributes to Davos’s near-death).

It is worth noting that during Tyrion’s second trial by combat—the one in which Oberyn and Gregor Clegane fight—Bronn previously refuses to champion Tyrion because the cost wasn’t sweet enough. This implies that Bronn understands when he might be outmatched or defeated.

I think that Bronn refused not only because it was the Mountain, but because he had not much to win from Tyrion anymore. Let’s not forget that Bronn is an opportunist. In the Eyrie, he was a common sellsword. He saw Tyrion Lannister in needs of help. In his mind it’s like “Lannister = Money, Power” and helping Tyrion (and surviving of course) is a game-changer in his modest life. It means gold, power, women, life in KL…

More than the difficulty of the opposition, what makes him refuse is the lack of incentives. He is now a knight, with all the gold and women that the title implies, so why would he ris his life for Tyrion ? Friendship ? Come on…

He might not mean that Bronn thinks he would lose againt Gregor, his arrogance could well make him think the opposite.

I could agree with this.  I feel Bronn is a man who hasn’t truly found his limits yet.  He can be shrewd, cunning, and pragmatic, but he does have a touch of arrogance.  Arrogance tends to be born of a lack of failure.  However, even an arrogant man may weigh risks and rewards when choosing a course of action.

That said, Bronn does like Tyrion, and does regard him as a friend.  But Bronn always comes first in Bronn’s mind.  That’s where their two paths diverge.

Such ‘friends’ tend to end up in the boneyard of lost players.

In Blackwater, when the Hound enters the pub he and Bronn almost throw down in, he walks in with another guy…like, they were tight or something…tight enough to go get a drink together before a war.
So…who the hell was that guy?
Did the Hound actually have a friend?

Sandor Clegane and Bronn Blackwater. Two of my favorite personalities of the series. TY for reviving this thread!
