Game of Thrones Season 8 Episode 4 Dracarys

Estevan Macias, Staff Writer

After the huge war fans had to endure last week we are still reminded that with 3 episodes left, someone still has to be on the throne. This episode is a great reminder of that and we are now prepping for the end. As we triumph over the heartache and insanity of last episode lets get into this one with SPOILERS AHEAD of course.

Heartbreaks and New Stakes

After the battle has been won we get a farewell to the soldiers we lost during it.  In a nice funeral scene we even see Arya seeming to be sad, an emotion she hasn’t expressed in a long time. We then see Danerys rewarding Gendry by making him Lord of Storm’s End which is most likely her trying to create another ally. The Gendry fanfare keeps going as we even see him propose to Arya after the fact. Arya denies him as that isn’t who she is, leaving Gendry alone. That’s not the only heartbreak as Brienne confesses her love for Jaime and both embrace until Jaime shows he still cares for his sister and has unfinished business. After Bran reveals Jon’s true identity to the last of the Starks.

Who is the Mad Queen?

As Danerys has lost many supporters, with even Varys not believing in her anymore, we begin to question if her sanity is okay. This continues as we an attack towards King’s Landing takes out her dragon leaving her with only one left. With a failed attack we get a shot of Cersei standing atop of her golden castle. Next to her is Missandei taken hostage from the battle and being used as a negotiation ploy. As Tyrion tries to negotiate with Cersei we know she is not one for surrendering and without bending the knee to her we say bye to Missandei with her last words being “Dracarys”. We are lastly given a shot of a frustrated Greywurm and ticked off Daenrys which brings the question will she go mad queen onto King’s Landing? We’ll just have to tune in next week to see.
