Missandei’s death at the hands of the Mountain in the most recent episode of Game of Thrones was tough to watch. Thankfully, the two are a lot closer in real life, with the Mountain apologising for his terrible behaviour.

There’s been no shortage of death on Game of Thrones. In the Battle of Winterfell episode alone, Ser Jorah, Theon Greyjoy, Lyanna Mormont, Edd Tollett, Beric Dondarrion, AND basically all the Dothraki died, leaving audiences – mostly me – with warm, salty tears running down their faces.

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.”

It’s been one of my greatest joys playing Missandei of Naath… The quiet and kind translator. A brilliant woman who overcame so much suffering and found herself, her voice… and her one and only love. She represented so much for me, personally, that I have no choice but to carry the things she has taught me into my life going forward. Thank you to everyone who made it possible for me to play this part… this life changing part… there are too many to list… @emilia_clarke GIRL! I love you… SO much. I’ve loved playing your BFF for the past 7 years. Thank you for being such a wonderful person in my life and a source of light and laughter. The Bad Ass Boss Lady Warrior Goddess club will live on forever 😂🙌🏽 @raleighritchie…. Jacoooob! I literally cannot tell you what sharing the screen with you has meant to me. I found performances I didn’t know I had inside me, simply because you gave me so much to work against. Playing Missandei and Grey Worm’s journey has been so special. I couldn’t have asked for a more generous and supportive co-star… Also… We’ve been out in these streets together boiiii🤣😂 negotiating so much but always having each other’s back. Thank you for all of it… you have been a dear friend at every point. To the entire cast and crew… You will always hold a special place in my heart. The love and energy we shared will be hard to match. I feel like I hit the jackpot meeting and working with you all. I love you. To the fans of the show, and of Missandei… Thank you for all the love and support… It’s been a pleasure playing her for you. 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 somwhere in sky 😂… 🍹🌴 #andnowmywatchhasended #MissandeiofNaath #Dracarys #thankyouforsupportingme #RIPMissandei #isleofbutterflies #🦋 #illbeseeingyou

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!
