If you thought 2020 couldn’t possibly get any worse, think again because West World just killed off one of everyone’s favourite Game of Thrones characters in a truly heartbreaking turn of events.

WARNING: Spoilers ahead, read at your own risk if you haven’t seen Westworld Season 3 Episode 2. 

No, for real though. If you haven’t seen the episode, click away now.

Drogon, aka Daenerys Targaryen’s big boy dragon on Game of Thrones was one of the few characters left standing when the show came to an end. But unfortunately, he met his eventual demise on Westworld, thus reminding us that HBO will always rip your heart out eventually.

The crossover we didn’t know we needed, honestly.

In Sunday night’s episode of the show, entitled The Winter LineGOT creators David Benioff and D.B Weiss made a sneaky little cameo, alongside everyone’s favourite dragon.

The two creators are cast as lab technicians in the show, where they are shown wearing gloves and aprons and operating on some sort of dragon.

But no, it’s not the happy little family you wanted to see. Nope. The Game of Thrones creators straight-up destroy the poor dragon with some sort of saw. It’s brutal stuff.

Thankfully, before they annihilated my favourite dragon they implied that Drogon is a robot, which makes it slightly less brutal.

Naturally, Twitter went wild over the episode.

Is this HBO’s way of telling us that the entire Game of Thrones cinematic universe is all just a part of a fucking theme park?

Although some fans were speculating that GoT world fits within Westworld, it turns out it was all just a harmless Easter egg.

Westworld’s show creator Jonathan Nolan explained to The Hollywood Reporter that they aren’t recreating the Game of Thrones world within the show.

“We’re friends with both Dan and David, who are lovely human beings,” Nolan said. “They have been incredibly supportive and friendly with us as we were getting our show up and running.”

It turns out they weren’t the only GoT crew that were keen on a crossover episode, with author George R. R. Martin also particularly fond of the idea.

“George R.R. Martin (GoT author) as well. George has frequently pitched a crossover episode,” he said. “When the time came for Luke (Hemsworth) and Jeffrey (Wright)’s characters to be wandering around in the bowels of the Mesa, we could not resist.”

Season 3 of the beloved HBO show takes place in the year 2058, following Evan Rachel Wood’s character Dolores the robot as she makes her way through the human world. Episode 2 is currently streaming on Foxtel Now.
