‘Game Of Thrones’ Star Jacob Anderson Admits The Show ‘Could’ve Been Better’ In Terms Of Diversity

‘Game Of Thrones’ Star Jacob Anderson Admits The Show ‘Could’ve Been Better’ In Terms Of Diversity With the final season set to kick off on Sunday, “Game of Thrones” will be coming to an end without having adressed its oft-criticized diversity problem; for years, the show has been dogged by complaints regarding its lack of diversity, primarily when it comes to the show’s lead characters. On Friday, “GoT” actor Jacob Anderson

Warning: Spoilers ahead for Sunday night's episode of Game of Thrones!

The Battle of Winterfell may be over, but no one on Game of Thrones is safe yet. Case in point: Sunday night's episode saw Daenerys's army finally reach King's Landing to confront Cersei - only to have the Dragon Queen lose her most trusted and beloved advisor. During the invasion, Dany's translator and advisor Missandei is captured by Cersei and Euron Greyjoy's forces. In case we didn't remember how brutal Cersei can be, we're reminded of it when she has Missandei beheaded in view of everyone. Just before her death, though, Missandei shouts out a word that we've heard before, and it's incredibly significant.

Everything 'Game of Thrones' actors have said about the series finale

Everything 'Game of Thrones' actors have said about the series finale As ‘Game of Thrones’ prepares to premiere its eighth and final season on April 14, 2019, we look at what some of the show’s top stars think about the finale. Emilia Clarke (Daenerys Targaryen) © 2015 Home Box Office, Inc.In an interview with British online newspaper The Independent, Clarke said she was so surprised by the script she walked around “for three hours, aimlessly” after reading the finale. In an earlier interview, with the Herald Sun, the English actress said, “People will scream and people will say, ‘That’s exactly what I wanted.

Missandei shouts "Dracarys!" which is the command in Valyrian that we've heard Dany use before when she's commanding her dragons to unleash their fire. Missandei has been there before to witness the badass destruction the dragons have wrought, notably in season three when Dany freed the Unsullied and commanded her dragons to destroy a cruel group of slave masters. It's a word that belongs to Dany and her dragons, and in using it, Missandei uses her last breath to declare her loyalty one more time.

There's also the potential for a message in Missandei's use of the dragon cry. Up until now, Missandei has been Dany's closest advisor, and it's possible she was giving advice one last time with her final shout. By using the "dracarys" call, she could be signaling to Dany to treat Cersei the way she's treated enemies in the past: by burning them to the ground. Unfortunately, it might be a little harder for Dany to do that these days. Not only is she down two advisors (losing Missandei now and Jorah in the Battle of Winterfell), she's also down two dragons, with Rhaegal's death at the hands of Euron Greyjoy's fleet. Whether or not Dany is able to follow her friend's final advice, it's a bittersweet callback to the history these two women shared and a reminder of just how closely tied their stories have been.

Tyrion's Final Line on Game of Thrones Is More Significant Than You Might Think.
Game of Thrones is no stranger to throwing subtle callbacks to previous seasons into the show's dialogue, so it's no surprise that the final line uttered in the series finale is one that holds a more significant meaning than fans may have initially thought. During the episode's final moments, Tyrion sits on the Small Council alongside Bronn, Brienne, Ser Davos, and Sam as they discuss their plans to rebuild King's Landing and whip Westeros back into shape now that a new king has been chosen. Always one to prioritize, Bronn, the new Master of Coin, mentions rebuilding the brothels that were were destroyed when Daenerys torched the city.
