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.
I still can't believe Dany blew a three dragon lead. How, my Lord? Euron shot Rhaegal like it was a preliminary round at archery camp.— Morgan Jerkins (@Morgan Jerkins)1557139853.0

They lit Rhaegal up like Denzel in Training Day— Dad (@Dad)1557112107.0
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.
Seeing Greyworm’s face as they beheaded Missandei was the most painful thing ever 😭😭😭😭#GameofThrones https://t.co/YlpjpddqLj— IG: michaelx_ (@IG: michaelx_)1557123291.0
daenerys freed missandei from chains, only for her to die in chains. she deserves so much better. https://t.co/WxeKs0Ts7n— DRACARYS BITCHES (@DRACARYS BITCHES)1557142754.0
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!
