Game of Thrones S08E3 - THEON GREYJOY'S DEATH

  • Published on Apr 29, 2019
  • RIP
    Credits to HBO & George R.R. Martin
    According to, in the script for "A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms" after Theon volunteers to protect Bran in the godswood during the coming battle. Jon says he doesn't have enough men. That's when Alys Karstark says she'll be there too.
    "I'll go with him," Alys says to Jon in the script. "The Karstarks betrayed your House. Allow us to earn back your trust."
    The script says "Jon appreciates the girl's sense of honor" and he nods in approval. This entire exchange did not make it onto the final episode.
    In the script for episode 3. Alys again has several key lines of dialogue. When they hear wights starting to invade the godswood, the script says: "Alys is terrified but maintains her resolve. She motions to her men in the direction of the sound: follow me."
    The scene then continues with Alys and her men walking among the trees in the godswood, following a trail of footprints. The trail leads them to a small wight-child, and the group of fighters turn to find a way out. But through the trees they can see "small figures moving with them. Snippets, glimpses of other child wights." The wights descend upon a Karstark soldier, and Alys "turns and runs."
    On the show, she was near Theon in the godswood, but never had a dedicated moment on screen during the fight. However, according to an Instagram post by the actress, they actually filmed her death scene but decided to cut it out for the final episode. Not sure why HBO decided to do that.

    I always loved Daenerys but this scene made me realize how weak she is without her Dragons or someone protecting her.

    His death broke me. I would’ve loved to have seen Yara’s reaction to his death.

    Imagine in the books since we will for sure get a similar version to the night king Theon defends bran as he did in this scene but instead he manages to kill the night’(s) king ultimately redeeming himeself

    Was an amazing way to go out but would’ve been even better if he killed a white walker or two while defending bran, RIP Theon you redeemed yourself as much as you could

    Theon, Jorah, and Arya had the best story arc in GOT. I am still mad at how they wrote Jon and Dany in the season 8.

    Theon was seriously the most conflicted and interesting character in the show. Alfie Allen is so underrated.

    Anyone else think Theon should have killed the night king? He should have stood up and stabbed him instead of Arya coming out of the sky. Arya should have tried to kill him but gets stopped and Theon saves her and Bran. Arya looks in shock as she didnt fulfill her prophecy and mourns Theon. Another one of Melissandre's prophecies doesn't come true so she takes her necklace off and dies.

    No one ever called a Theon a good man. He was always either a disappointment or “not in the club.” But looking back at the earlier seasons, he was never a bad guy at all, especially by GOT standards. He never ordered the two kids and their family killed, his men did it without him knowing. Theon wanted to give the family a purse for there lose and only went along with the act out of stupidity. He’s a truly tragic character, that’s why he’s sadly, one of the most underrated/loved characters in the show. Also, looking at the bodies laid in front of him, Theon wins highest personal kill count.

    The only man who looked the Night's King in the face and said "fuck you." The man with no balls turns out to be the man with the only balls big enough to face the Night's King face to face. Theon Greyjoy.

    Yeah who would ever thought Theon would died so honorable in the end he was a true stark he knew by protecting Bran he most likely die and when Bran said he said he knew he was but he ran toward it to give bran more time and I think it did Arya got there just in time so Theon help kill the night king as much as Arya in my opinion

    Such a beautifully written arc, but I wish we could've seen Theon in the godswood while he didn't remember his name. They're really powerful moments in the book. Not even anything too important, I wanted to hear the tree whisper to him.

    Man this bit when he said Theon you’re a good man, made me cry. You felt it so deep that that’s all he wanted, to finally be good guy and do the right thing.

    Dull machete will Go to all the men Theon just kills. I don’t want to give to Theon because he was my favorite character and put an awesome fight and a sacrifice
    And the men Theon kills are all offscreen

    I wish Bran could have killed the NK with a special weapon given to him by the children. It would have made sense.

    The saddest thing is that Bran knew what was going to happen to Theon, that's why he talked to him the way he did and thanked him, because Bran knew those were the very last words Theon needed to hear.

    This is so unfair ... Theon died for nothing before ninja girl jumped out of nowhere to save one of the most useless characters in the show ...

    For what it’s worth, I wonder if It would’ve been any different had theon just stayed by Brans side.

    Brienne and co get swarmed but are completely fine yet theon gets penetrated by a god damn stick trough plate armor. What a mess of a show and what a shame to let this amazing actor die in such a stupid way.

    Instead of the Night King dying the way he did, they should've made both Theon AND Arya kill him.
    Have it go the way it did, but instead of the dagger being a one-hit-ko it should've injured him and then the night king injured Arya in their fight. Have the Night King almost kill her, but as he he' about to Theon impales the Night King on the same spear he was impaled by. The Night King then kicks Theon away and when he turns around Arya slits his throat with the dagger finally killing him. Theon then bleeds out from his wounds with a peaceful look on his face knowing that he protected the Starks and redeemed himself.

    This death stuck with me. Ned Starks death, dragon deaths, dany death, jorahs or any other death on the series never came close to the impact this one had on me.
