Even though the craze following May's Game of Thrones series finale has settled, the release of the last episode's script has stirred up the drama again. And it contains some important details that fans should know.
It's no secret that Game of Thrones fanatics were not incredibly happy with the season and its series finale. Many viewers had a lot of questions about why it all had to end the way it did. Mainly, why did Drogon melt the Iron Throne?
Many people wondered about the purpose behind Drogon's destruction. Why was this necessary? Well, the script contains all the answers and reads: "But the blast is not for him. Drogon wants to burn the world but he will not kill Jon."
After Drogon destroys the throne, the script continues: "We look over Jon’s shoulder as the fire sweeps toward the throne – not the target of Drogon’s wrath, just a dumb bystander caught up in the conflagration."
Watch this hot take on how the series really should have ended:
But some people still aren't satisfied with this answer. Why make one of the most vital scenes in the final season so confusing? Why make Jon Snow just a dumb bystander?

This prequel will take place thousands of years prior to the storyline that just finished, and will include the likes of Naomi Watts, John Simm, Miranda Richardson. So don't panic if you still have lingering questions about the end of one of the most talked about shows, ever.
