Spoilers for the latest 'Game of Thrones' episode incoming, fam.

Look. It’s a simple rule of life that if you don’t want to piss off a lot of people, then don’t shoot everyone’s favourite dragon. Simple advice that can be applied to any situation? Want to nail that job interview? Don’t shoot the dragon. Relationship troubles? Stay away from shooting the dragon my dude.

So spare a thought for poor Jerome Flynn, a.k.a. Bronn on ‘Game of Thrones‘, who can’t even get so much as a “good morning” from his postman after shooting Drogon last episode with a 10-foot spear.

“I was surprised when watching [the battle sequence],” he told HBO‘s Making Game Of Thrones. “I spent weeks on that sequence, but I was on the edge of my seat, the adrenaline was running – they really nailed it. Although since the day the battle aired, I’ve been a little unpopular, I have to say. My postman won’t speak to me because I shot the dragon.”

He also gave a little insight into the Bronn-JaimeTyrion bro-triangle going on. Basically: he sees Jaime as his ticket to a sweeter deal, but has a bond with Tyrion that can’t exactly be broken.

“There’s an element of frustration in terms of how he’s being used [by Jaime],” he says. “Jaime is talking about Bronn as if he’s his right-hand man with this elevated status, but Bronn is still getting tasked with dirty work. Bronn even tells him to go back to King’s Landing, but he sticks around and then makes Bronn basically go on a death run; it pisses Bronn off. Nobody’s going to be happy to be told to ride through that battlefield with the dragon ahead.”

He calls Bronn’s relationship with Tyrion a “different kettle of fish”.

“He doesn’t have total disregard for Jaime, but he has a bond with Tyrion that’s hard for him to ignore. And the connection they’ve made with their sense of humour. If Bronn’s got a fondness for anybody in the world, I’d say Tyrion is probably close up there. He sees him as an underdog like himself.”

The only thing we know for certain at this point is none of this is going to end well – but with any luck, Bronn survives the wars and finds himself a big ol’ castle to settle down in.
