After the chaos of "The Long Night," this week ushered in "The Last of the Starks," which saw some of our beloved characters using the news of Jon Snow's birthright to suit their own ends.
It seemed this would be a quieter, more contemplative episode, and it was.
The poor creature didn't stand a chance, dropping into the ocean and disappearing beneath the waves––and people just about lost it.
Yes, Daenerys took a major hit this week, and right after losing Jorah Mormont, too. But Rhaegal's death wasn't the end to her terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day: Cersei Lannister had the Mountain behead Missandei of Naath, Daenerys's most loyal and trusted adviser.
And right in front of her and Greyworm, too.
There's one tiny silver lining: Missandei's last words were "Dracarys," a High Valyrian word meaning "dragon fire."
Did Missandei seriously tell her queen to burn every last person in King's Landing?
You bet she did!
Daenerys is going to go on a rampage next episode and we are here for it.
Tune in next week to find out how this show will manage to shatter our hearts even more!
