Stone Men do not need to breathe? [closed] - A Man in White Long Sleeve Shirt with Hands Together Praying

When Tyrion is pulled under water by a Stone Man in the attack scene in Game of Thrones (Season 5, episode 5), it appears that the Stone Man does not need to breathe -- Is it implied anywhere that this is the case?

This is when Jorah and Tyrion are attacked in a boat and Jorah gets exposed to the disease. Tyrion falls overboard and is pulled under water by a stone man who appears far below him, and does not seem to need to breathe.

Best Answer

This scene does not imply that Stone Men cannot breathe.

In the scene in question we see multiple Stone Men jump from the rocks above the boat--two into the water and two into the boat directly. Jorah and Tyrion (but mostly Jorah) fight the Stone Men off, knocking them repeatedly into the water after the Stone Men repeatedly jump or climb into the boat. When Tyrion finally falls into the water, he is grabbed from below by one of the Stone Men who had fallen into the water previously. He is grabbed about ten seconds after the most recent Stone Man is knocked into the water. I was able to hold my own breath for the entire 90 second duration of the scene without much trouble. By contrast, the Stone Man who grabs Tyrion could have been holding his breath for as little as ten seconds, depending on which of the Stone Men he was. That he grabbed from below and pulled Tyrion down suggests that Stone Men tend to sink and cannot swim well--the fact that the Stone Men Jorah kills do not float to the surface supports this--but the scene in no way implies that Stone Men do not need to breathe... In fact, Tyrion's survival suggests that the Stone Man who had him, let him go for some reason--most likely because he drowned.

Can stone men breathe underwater?

Since it mentions here that the stone men are dead, covered with the greyscale disease and acting like animals, the stone men play a bit like a group of involuntary undead infected like zombies and no zombies do not need to breath and can travel distances while submerged without oxygen. @MCUAndYouFilmBlog ....

What happens if a stone man touches you?

Greyscale, also known as "Prince Garin's curse", is a dreaded and usually fatal disease that can leave flesh stiff and dead, and the skin cracked and flaking, and stone-like to the touch.
