Killed off missandei episode

All the spoilers for HBO’s fantasy drama are ahead, I assure you. If somehow you are still behind, what were you thinking clicking on this article?

Game of Thrones actually had a fairly uneventful fourth episode, particularly given how insane “The Long Night” had been a week previously. Regardless, it did end with a big death, as Daenerys Targaryen met with Cersei to try to avoid battling on the streets in King’s Landing, particularly after Euron Greyjoy took down one of her dragons and captured Missandei.

It was clear very quickly that Cersei Lannister had no intentions of peace and ultimately decided to sacrifice Missandei in front of Dany’s delegation. It was a tragic moment and in many ways Missandei ultimately was a sacrificial pawn on a larger chess board.

For actress, Nathalie Emmanuel, however, although her Game of Thrones story has ended, the part and her larger love story with Grey Worm was life-changing for the actress. She shared a thoughtful nod back at her work on the HBO series through a touching post. You can check it out below.

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....

A post shared by Nathalie Emmanuel (@nathalieemmanuel) on

Prior to the release of Season 8 of Game of Thrones, Grey Worm actor Jacob Anderson talked about how the series is constantly keeping the fans guessing, not only in terms of who will die and how they will die, but also whether death is even permanent. Some characters, including but certainly not limited to Jon Snow, have already returned on the series.

Regardless, given there are only a couple of episodes left of the long-running fantasy drama, and given Nathalie Emmanuel seems to be officially saying goodbye to Game of Thrones here in her post, this ending seems permanent for the character.

Which is a shame, because Missandei was always the calm beside Daenerys Targaryen’s storm. She was also one of just a few actors of color on the show during the long eight seasons and she was one of the longest-running characters on the show. Although not a lead on Game of Thrones, her death should act as a catalyst for what is to come on the show.

Missandei saying dracarys on Game of Thrones 2019

Nathalie Emmanuel joined Game of Thrones back in 2013, during Season 3 of the series. Her arc had her becoming a world traveler and a loyal supporter to her queen, Daenerys Targaryen. During her final episode, Missandei went out in a way that still showed support to her queen, as her final line was, “Dracarys.” She also left behind her love, Grey Worm, and there was definitely a faction of fans out there hoping the two could realize their happy ending in a much warmer climate after all this fighting was over.

Unfortunately, as we saw last week, not everyone has shown such unwavering loyalty to Daenerys Stormborn in recent weeks as Grey Worm and Missandei did. In fact, this week it looks as if Varys trying to put the kingdom before his own personal safety may be his undoing. More on that and other Game of Thrones theories only at CinemaBlend. Game of Thrones airs on HBO on Sunday nights at 9 p.m. ET.
