Missandei of Naath

Last Words: “Dracarys!”

How She Died: Beheaded by the Mountain after being captured by Cersei Lannister as a pawn in the deadly game of thrones.

Why Her Last Words Made An Impact: While some viewers believe Missandei’s final utterance to be wildly out of character – why would this woman advocate for the mass slaughter of thousands of innocents? – it triggered all the rage inside the Mother of Dragons. With the death of Jorah Mormont, the slaughter of her dragon Rhaeghal, and the execution of her bestie handmaiden, Daenerys Targaryen has lost almost everything. She’s certainly lost one of the last people who might advocate for sense, compassion, and mercy in the upcoming siege of King’s Landing.

In fact, Missandei’s last word most certainly stoked Daenerys’s fury to a boiling point. With three simple syllables, Missandei communicates it all to her friend and queen. Tear it to the ground. Burn them all. Little did she know that she was advocating for Daenerys to do exactly what her father, the Mad King Aerys Targaryen attempted to do before her, but dracarys, aka: fire, has always been critical to the Targaryen bloodline. We’ll just have to wait and see how literally Daenerys takes Missandei’s words in the next episode…
