So, today’s episode was something…and I say that with fumes of rage coming out from my ears! Game of Thrones season 8 episode 4 can be summed up in one word – disappointing. Sure the episode had its moments of laughter, heartbreak, and anger, fans from across the world are pointing out some of the things that downright enraged them.
1. Ghost didn’t even get a proper goodbye.
Dammit, Jon! The direwolf has unflinchingly been by his side, lost an ear fighting with the dead for him and not only does Jon not pet him but also doesn’t give him a proper goodbye, in a way abandoning him. Fans are right being pissed at Jon!
GHOST LOST HALF AN EAR AND LOOKS ABSOLUTELY WRECKED AF AFTER FIGHTING JON’S STUPID WAR AND YOU’RE TELLING ME THAT JON COULDNT EVEN SAY GOODBYE TO THE GOODEST BOY IN ALL OF WESTEROS???????? #GamefThrones #ghost #GOT pic.twitter.com/nMSQR1aCSI

Ned Stark: "You will train them yourselves, you will feed them yourselves, and if they die, you will bury them yourselves."
Not give them away after they risked their lives protecting you over, and over, and over again.

Ghost, charged towards White walkers on the front line. Survived.
Didn't even get any acknowledgement by his owner, no proper good byes not even a "good boy".

2. Missandei died the worst possible death – in chains.
One of the most loyal followers the show has seen till now, Missandei’s death was truly a letdown! It would have felt much better if she died by a crossbow pierced through her from one of Euron’s ships. But watching her die a prisoner was incredibly heartbreaking. Also, a woman of colour taken as a prisoner and executed while in chains – her death might be the beginning of a big controversy surrounding people of colour.
Missandei's story is what happens when the writers can not imagine a world where Black characters are fully developed so…not surprised

3. No one saw Rheagal’s death coming!
Just when we thought that Dany’s gonna reach Dragonstone and kick some ass with two of her dragons, while she admires them flying (totally misleading, tbh), a crossbow appears out of nowhere and boom! Rheagal’s dead. What is this life?!
Rheagal death really hit me like I lost family… like wtf yo pic.twitter.com/ZSsFgA9PrH

Rheagal deserved suuuuch a better death than that. I’m fucking PISSED

So rhaegal made it through the long night and a whole army of the dead only to be killed by Eurons smelly looking fleet of unwashed ass? I AM FUMINGGGG #GamefThrones

4. Jaime is the worst fuckboi in the history of all fuckbois.
There were just too many things wrong with Brienne and Jaime’s narrative. First, Brienne was lowkey virgin-shamed. Second, just when their romance (which has been building up since season 3) saw some light, Jaime left her to get to Cersei. No matter what his intentions were, a man leaving an unconventional and “masculine” woman for another traditionally appealing choice sure did enrage many.
The fact that Tyrion shamed Brienne for being a virgin (D+D’s writing always hits new lows when I never think it can) and publicly embarrassed her…I hope he dies a painful death! But of course even though he is “a good guy” a woman’s body is up for public discussion to him pic.twitter.com/00uc5j783W

if brienne and jaime have sex simply because tyrion mocks her for being a virgin i will kill d&d

5. Dany’s total disregard for common sense.
Anybody in their right minds would want to rest, take a vacation, and, for God’s sake, sleep for some good hours after battling the most dangerous villain the show had to offer. But that’s just not Dany’s way! Even after Sansa, Varys, and Tyrion advised her otherwise, Dany was so unbelievably arrogant that she completely ignored their counsel. The result? Missandei, Rheagal, and probably a handful of their remaining army dead.

Sansa: we should wait. Have the men rest.
Dany: NO CERSEI IS GETTING STRONGER AS WE SPEAK. WE CANNOT WAIT.
*Later, Dany gets ambushed, Rhaegal dies, Missandei gets captured and executed, her ships destroyed*

*Daeneys gets washed*

6. Jon and Sansa can’t keep a secret.
The two letting out on the secret of Jon’s true parentage even after swearing not to is hilariously the most relatable thing ever!
Jon: don’t tell anyone. Swear it.

Ned Stark : *keeps a secret for 20 years, takes it to the grave*
Jon : Swear you won't tell anyone.
Sansa : I Swear.

Jon: Swear you won’t tell anybody I’m the real heir to the throne.
