Beware of spoilers!
But just when I thought I was all cried out, Missandei – gorgeous, lovely, totally non-threatening Missandei – had her head separated from her body under the weight of the Mountain’s sword.
Fans were not happy that Daenerys Targaryen’s right-hand woman and loyal friend had been killed off so brutally, projecting their displeasure at one Gregor Clegane for adding yet another shocking kill to his CV.
However, wanting to prove that it wasn’t anything personal, Icelandic strongman Hafthor Julius Bjornsson, the man behind the zombie villain, has shared an Instagram post explaining that he was just acting under orders.
Posting a lovely festive snap together – they could be a couple – the ginormous b*stard wrote: “So sorry. Cersei made me do it. Hope we’re cool!”
Ahh, he’s just a big teddy bear.
Not that I’d say that to his face because he’d used me as his toothpick.
The actress also bid farewell to her character on Instagram, in a much more heartfelt way.
“It’s been one of my greatest joys playing Missandei of Naath … The quiet and kind translator,” she wrote. “A brilliant woman who overcame so much suffering and found herself, her voice … and her one and only love.”
“Thank you for all the love and support … I know last night was pretty intense for some of you so I invite you to participate in my fantasy where I like to think that, right now … Missandei is sipping a rum on a beach somewhere in sky.”
However, her send-off on Twitter was a little more tongue in cheek – repeating her character’s last words (interestingly, this is what her last words – “Dracarys” – mean for the rest of season 8.)
And if that’s not enough for you, there’s a video posted by Jacob Anderson (aka Raleigh Ritchie aka Grey Worm) in which he and Missandei dance around on set to Ghost Town DJs ‘My Boo’.
Because why not?
They were meant to be together forever!
