In all of the major deaths that the epic battle against the Night King brought about, Theon Greyjoy’s is the most painful of them all and fans aren’t the only ones who are feeling this.
Sophie Turner, who plays Sansa Stark on the HBO show, took to her Instagram earlier on Monday to offer tribute to her co-star Alfie Allen’s character. Captioned ‘ To Alfie and to Theon “You’re a good man” ‘ alongside a picture of Theon in tears, Turner’s post shares our pain of his death and has touched the hearts of the entire Game of Thrones fandom.
Although Arya Stark was the real MVP of the episode, fans are also raving about Greyjoy’s death and how his character has come a full circle. “You’re a good man, Theon. Thank you,” Bran Stark tells Theon Greyjoy as the two are surrounded by white walkers and the Night King is slowly walking towards them as they stand their ground beneath the Weirwood tree.
Without further ado, Theon jumped into the fray. The tears flowed freely down his cheeks as he knew that redemption was at hand. He was, after all, facing the dreaded Night King, who spared him thought before turning Theon’s weapon and thrusting it into his stomach and killing him.
He spent the last moments of his life correcting all the wrongs he had done and he actually served his purpose. He died as an honorable soldier, brother and friend fighting and dying for the very Starks he had wronged. Among all the reactions Greyjoy’s character got, his arc is incredibly redeeming and will not to be forgotten for a while. It may even be one of the most memorable deaths of this season.
Not only did Turner offer tribute to Greyjoy, but also gave a huge shoutout to Arya Stark on her Instagram story. Clearly, the fans aren’t the only ones raving about Arya’s victory over the Night King.
