As Game of Thrones draws to a close, it’s unavoidable that certain characters will have to face their ultimate ending. When there are so many people who want power, it’s inevitable that some will have to be killed in order for any sort of satisfying conclusions to be drawn. But last night’s episode was an absolute bloodbath.
As Daenerys made her invasion on King’s Landing, we knew that it was going to end badly for someone. But the death toll was higher – and more main character focused – than anyone expected. As fan favorites and those that we love to hate crumbled alike, viewers were left wondering what would become of the Game of Thrones world post-battle.
With just one episode left, it seems that people are pretty sure who the ultimate survivors (and victors) will be. But with so many shockers in this week’s episode, only one thing is truly clear – we must expect the unexpected.
