Black Hole Event Horizon and Universe Entropy

    My 9 year old son just asked about how long the unverse will exist and aren't black holes cool.

    It set me to thinking, if we think of the event horizon as a place where time stops, and of the universe having finite entropy which eventually becomes zero over a very long time, what happens to the event horizon?, does the frozen/stopped time simply vanish into the ether or what?

    Might be a daft question, but maybe someone has an explanation?
