Why Missandei's death on Game Of Thrones felt particularly problematic

Dracarys: The Meaning Of Dany's Dragon Command In Game of Thrones Season 8

While the conflict between the Lannisters and the Starks has been the main focus of the show since the very first episode, the rivalry between the Lannisters and House Martell is also a major component, if only because it led to one of the most brutal moments the show had ever seen. Let's look at some of the options.

After they left Winterfell together, Arya told the Hound that she didn't intend to return home, so if she were to go down fighting, or perhaps even win in a bout with the Mother of Dragons and stick around to help clean up the mess, that would certainly make good on that promise.

Jaime's return to King's Landing was also significant given his character arc: After a season of rebuilding himself and his moral code, free from Cersei's grasp, he ultimately chose to abandon his friend and newfound lover Brienne of Tarth (Gwendoline Christie) to return to his queen.

Word of advice? Maybe stay off Twitter from next Sunday onwards until you'd had time to digest the episode for yourself.

Arya has shown us time and again that a quiet family life is not in her nature, and when Gendry Baratheon (Joe Dempsie) offered to take her hand and live out their days together as the Lord and Lady of Storm's End, she politely declined.

On Sunday, May 19 Game of Thrones will be coming to a close, and we can't wait to see who emerges from the gory battles unscathed to rule.

SEBIN agents had surrounded his vehicle outside the headquarters of his Democratic Action party in Caracas' La Florida district. The SEBIN used a tow truck to drag Mr Zambrano's vehicle away while he was still inside and then detained him.

It's hard to tell where the show will go from here, but we know one thing's for sure.

"Jon Snow is someone that she's fallen in love with", he noted, referencing the character's pulling away from Dany ahead of the war.

"The more we talked about it the more it seemed like the flawless end for her", Headey said.

When Ellaria is captured, so is her daughter Tyene, and the two are brought to King's Landing to suffer the cruel fate that Cersei has planned. And who could any of them better trust to protect them than the woman who single-handedly eliminated the biggest threat the world has ever known? We've long since given up expecting responsible representation from the show, but Missandei's death feels more sinister than just lazy writing - it feels willfully ignorant and uncaring towards fans who may identify with characters like her, as if the creators are shouting "You don't matter" with one fell swoop of The Mountain's sword. Hey, stranger things have happened this season.

Does this mean Sansa will end up on the Iron Throne when the series concludes next week?
