Game of Thrones Creators Explain the Dark Dany Twist You Truly Hated


These episodes have, collectively, given us more "holy s**t" moments than most TV shows combined, so what about the final one?

After Jamie killed Cersei's new lover Euron Greyjoy, he tried to lead her to safety through a secret passage but when their path was blocked with rubble, he comforted Cersei as they awaited their demise together and were ultimately killed by the Red Keep's collapse.

Headey says her reaction that final scene was "mixed" at first.

After being collected from his chambers, he was brought to Dany, where she waited with her single remaining dragon, Drogon, and let rip with a "dracarys".
