Full disclosure: I was not a big fan of the Missandei/Grey Worm scene last night. We have house guests — who are strangers to us — staying with us this week. They moved in yesterday, and watching that scene in Game of Thrones was not exactly the most comfortable moment I have ever experienced.

Twitter had a good time, too, but Twitter was a little more graphic than I’d have liked. These are the tweets that made me the least uncomfortable, because much of what Twitter had to say last night put me in full-body cringe mode.

But, you know they don’t introduce that scene for no reason. It’s straight out of the Kurt Sutter playbook: Make us care about a character as much as humanly possible before killing him off.

Grey Worm is too good for this world, anyway.
