** This post is dark and full of spoilers **
After defeating the Night King in an epic (and dark) battle, the gang on Game of Thrones went back to what they usually do—fight over the Iron Throne. This time around, Cersei Lannister made her way back into conversation and Daenerys had her sails set on King’s Landing with her beat up army and her remaining two dragons.
But, instead of having a normal entrance and welcome into King’s Landing, Cersei greeted Dany by killing off one of her children—Rhaegal—and then taking her most trusted friend and advisor, Missandei, right out from under her.
At the end of the episode, Cersei had Missandei displayed for her entire fleet of people in chains—a huge metaphor knocking Dany from being the “breaker of chains.” Missandei herself was once a slave before Dany saved her from a life of servitude. Cersei then had the Mountain decapitate her in front of everyone—includingher love, Grey Worm, and Daenerys, too.
Her last words left a lasting impression on fans—as Missandei screamed “Dracarys,” hoping Dany would just burn King’s Landing to the ground. Fans who watched the episode were just about as heartbroken and outraged as Grey Worm was watching his girl die right in front of his very eyes.
Me on the phone with the Game of Thrones writers after watching Arya reject Gendry, Jon getting rid of Ghost, Jaime leaving Brienne for Cersei, Rhaegal and Missandei getting killed and Dany starting to go mad all in the same episode #GameofThrones pic.twitter.com/TaCGE3ymzd

Missandei was the most innocent, pure character we’ve ever had, all she wanted was to support the queen that freed her from years of slavery and enjoy life with the man she loved, I have no sympathy anymore burn them all #GameofThrones pic.twitter.com/nf9DEAn8uG
