REST IN PEACE, EURON GREYJOY
FIRST EPISODE | Season 6, Episode 2, “Home”
FINAL EPISODE | Season 8, Episode 5, “The Bells”
HIGH POINTS | Earning the title of King of the Iron Islands, commanding his massive fleet of ships to several key victories, delivering Ellaria Sand to Cersei Lannister and winning a promise of marriage from the queen, finally bedding Cersei after demanding a reward for his many accomplishments, taking down Dany’s dragon Rhaegal (!) with a few incredibly well-aimed scorpion blasts.
LOW POINTS | Killing his own brother Balon to earn aforementioned title, getting turned down cold when he first proposed marriage to Cersei, taking his own niece Yara hostage and taunting his nephew Theon with insults like “cockless coward,” losing Yara while he was busy romping with Cersei.
CAUSE OF DEATH | Fatally stabbed by Jaime in a duel to the death… but he snuck in a mortal blow of his own, and died claiming, “I’m the man who killed Jaime Lannister.”
EPITAPH | Yes, Euron was possibly the biggest jerk in all of Westeros, but let’s give him this: The man sure could sail a boat.
