The Game of Thrones finale was undoubtedly was one of the most-watched television events ever, finally concluding one of the densest and complex fantasy stories of all time.

As a result of her violent behaviour and lack of remorse, Jon Snow personally murdered her in the throne room of the Red Keep.
