Several shocking deaths happened in Game of Thrones season 8. We are yet to see who survives the end in the finale episode. Daenerys Targaryen almost died in the previous episode. But before Varys could succeed with his plans of poisoning the Daenerys Targaryen, he was sentenced to death by her.
Varys was not in the favour of Daenerys taking the Iron Throne after he got to know that Jon Snow is the true heir. He even tried to convince Jon Snow to take the throne. However, he refused as he had full confidence in his Queen. Well, we are not sure if he feels the same for her after what happened in the previous episode.
Sadly, Varys was right about the Dragon Queen even though he hoped that things would take a different view. Varys cleverly tried to oust Daenerys by poisoning her. If you are still wondering when this happened in Game of Thrones season 8 episode 5, you missed the big clue. But we are here to tell you everything about it.
Did you miss the clue?
In the beginning of Game of Thrones season 8 episode 5, Varys was seen talking to one of his “little birds”. The girl told him that Daenerys wouldn’t eat anything. Varys said that they would try once again at supper. The little girl was concerned about the enigmatic mission. But Varys calmed her down and said,
The greater the risk, the greater the reward.
Varys had a strong feeling that eventually Daenerys would turn into the Mad Queen. She has already seen a lot and after watching her another dragon and Missandei die in Game of Thrones season 8 episode 5, she wouldn’t be able to keep it together for long.
Well, fans were not happy to see Varys die, nor was actor Conleth. Still, he had the last laugh for vouching against the Dragon Queen.
