For a couple of minutes there, we really thought Game of Thrones season eight, episode four – The Last of the Starks – was going to be a breather, an intermission, a break after last week’s Battle of Winterfell. But HA, NOPE because there’s still Cersei Lannister and her Golden Company – minus the elephants – to deal with.
Exasperated, I cry: It’s Meme Time, Babey into the void.

Dany’s *this close* to absolutely losing it after fucking Euron Greyjoy murdered Rhaegal then her voice of reason, her adviser, her friend, the sweet badass Missandei is killed. In last week’s The Long Night, Dany lost her entire Dothraki army as well as Ser Jorah Mormont. So of course, Cersei has Missandei beheaded by The Mountain in front of Grey Worm and Dany.
Missandei’s final word? “Dracarys”, the High Valyrian word for “dragon fire.” The – *gulps* – word that marked the end of her and Grey Worm’s slavery.
But it’s also synonymous with Dany burning a whole shitload of people so stay tuned for The Mad Queen.

Missandei’s last words basically told Dany to BURN CERSEI AND KING’S LANDING DOWN.

The newly-minted Gendry Baratheon, Lord of Storm‘s End proposed to Arya.
Arya said no.
Ayra saying no to Gendry took years off my life but made me proud nonetheless

Arya, rejecting Gendry’s proposal: “You’ll be a wonderful lord. And any lady would be lucky to have you. But I’m not a lady. I never have been. That’s not me.”

Jaime goddamn Lannister
Brienne and Jaime drunkenly banged and fans were joyous for about three seconds… then he ran back to his fucking sister.
Brienne was shattered.

Jon Snow told Tormund to take sweet Ghost north AND HE DIDN’T EVEN SAY GOODBYE TO THE PUP.
What the actual shit, JON.
Jon: Take him with you.
