He was able to land his shot and Drogon flew down to the ground where Dany tried to remove the bolt from her dragon's chest/shoulder area.
That giant arrow was sacked at Daenerys's beloved dragon son Drogon, and the internet collectively went, "NOT THE DRAGON!" That's certainly the experience of actor Jerome Flynn, perhaps better known for his role as the salty-tongued sellsword Bronn in Game of Thrones.
Although they may have been fighting for opposing forces on this occasion, Tyrion and Bronn once forged a friendship that quickly garnered an enthusiastic response from Game of Thrones fans. Initially sworn to Tyrion, Bronn found himself in the service of Jaime Lannister after Tyrion became an enemy of the crown.
"I spent weeks on that sequence", Jerome Flynn, who plays Bronn, told HBO. So much so, that even his "postman won't speak with him". And also is imaginary. Fearing for his life, Bronn somehow managed to work Qyburn's Scorpion weapon created to take down the creature, firing an arrow direct into Drogon in the process. He unleashed spears at the fire-breather - managing to injure him in the process and create one of the most painful scenes in the episode. And that one particular sequence was some of the most exciting filming I've had. It's a whole dance going on.
The "Loot Train Attack" scene ended in a cliffhanger sequence that turned out to be totally badass. "He doesn't have total disregard for Jaime", Flynn said, "but he has a bond with Tyrion that's hard for him to ignore". And one fan's observation makes sense out of Tyrion's failures. "It's probably the coolest weapon I'm going to get to play with", he said. Additionally, if the duo were ever to lock swords, Flynn's assertion that Bronn is more fond of Tyrion than anyone else suggests that the man infamous for "following the money" could have some moral qualms about executing one of Cersei's most wanted.
What do you hope to see in "Eastwatch" and what do you think will happen as a result the remainder of season 7 of Game of Thrones?
