Editor’s note: the following contains serious spoilers for Game of Thrones.
While the world laments the struggle having to go more than a year without Game of Thrones as its eighth and final season films, the show’s cast and crew are experiencing an entirely different sort of sadness. Series stars who have spent nearly a decade of their lives filming the epic fantasy show are now faced with life after Game of Thrones — and it’s an exceptionally emotional prospect. For actress Nathalie Emmanuel, who plays Missandei, wrapping the series and saying farewell to the GOT cast and crew warranted a tearjerker of an Instagram post, which, luckily for us, is littered with potential hints about season eight.
Grab your tissues and your tinfoil hats, because we’re diving deep into the implications of Emmanuel’s sweet-yet-devastating post. Spoiler alert: one of your favorite characters is almost certainly going to die.
