What to Expect from Game of Thrones Season 8 Episode 5?
Leaks have been all over the place and bits and pieces of the leaked script tell us that the next episode of Game of Thrones will feature some major deaths. The episode is all set to take the events of Episode 4 forward. We saw that the episode ended with Missandei being beheaded by the mountain, but she makes one final request to the Khaleesi as she dies, she says Dracarys.
This means that in Game of Thrones Season 8 Episode 5, we are going to see the wrath of Daenerys. Given that she has lost two of her oldest aides in Ser Jorah and Missandei, as well as two dragons (one that fell to the Night King and another that was killed by Euron), she is going to show no mercy to anyone anymore and is going to burn down Kings Landing! A lot of characters are expected to die in this episode and the dragon queen is expected to be very, very angry.
