HBO’s hugely popular fantasy-drama show Game of Thrones is notorious for offing even its most central of its characters. Yes, the show just doesn’t shy away from its killing spree since it premiered in 2011. Flash forward to 2017 with seven glorious seasons now in, the show is still cavalier with its reputation. [Tread carefully: spoilers ahead!]
Perhaps its most heartbreaking (yet weirdly fulfilling) death this seventh season is that of the Queen of Thorns herself, Lady Olenna of House Tyrell: the last living person of its often cunning lineage has ironically been provided with probably the easiest and most pain-free of death sentence in the series — poison. Obara and Nymeria Sand, two of Oberyn Martell’s eight illegitimate daughters or also known as “The Sand Snakes,” met their tragic fate when Euron Greyjoy’s fleet attacked that of Yara’s. These deaths may have triggered an outpouring of grief among its fans, (especially that of Olenna’s) but these are nothing if compared to the forthcoming seventh season finale of Game of Thrones, which is now rumored to be laden with shocking deaths. So, who among them is finally getting their ultimate send off?
