Warning: This story contains major spoilers for Game of Thrones season eight, episode six, The Iron Throne.
The last remaining Lannister was imprisoned by Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) following on from his decision to release his brother Jaime Lannister (Nikolaj Coster Waldau).
However, he was freed by the new king Bran Stark (Isaac Hempstead Wright) who also branded him the Hand of the King.
At the end of the episode, peace fell upon Westeros finally, as the merry band of men tried to figure out how on Earth they would rule.
Samwell Tarly (John Bradley), who is now a Maester, decided to write an historical account of the events in Game of Thrones, and named the epic book A Song of Ice and Fire.
Tyrion was tasked with editing the beast and he was keen to learn what was said about him.
However, Samwell had to deliver the crushing blow that he wasn’t mentioned, despite being one of the key figures in modern Westerosi history.
Furthermore, it was Tyrion who declared Bran should be king, labelling him Bran the Broken.
Despite not having a role in the book, it seems that plot point was actually foretold by Varys (Conleth Hill) in episode four when he started to conspire against Daenerys.
Reddit user Mishlis said: “Not only was Varys correct about Dany turning mad and burning down King’s Landing but he was also right when telling Tyrion, ‘The history books will not write about you’.”
They added: “Loved that scene actually, although it was played out as comedy, it had a deeper meaning, in my opinion.”
Despite Tyrion being written out of history, all of the important characters know his true worth.
Fans flocked to Twitter in outage at the sight as they believed another should have taken the throne.
One said: “Good thing @GameOfThrones is over because it would be lame as s**t having to watch Bran Stark rule King’s Landing.”
Another raged: “#BranStark ??…. really? We wasted our many years to see Bran The Broken (king)??”
A third commented: “Dude #BranStark should not have gotten that throne. He’s been so useless in the show.
“His potential was there but it was never used right. This season of #GameOfThrones has been so disappointing.”
Game of Thrones is now available to stream on Sky Go and NOW TV.
