Season 8 of Game of Thrones has not started and there is another death

Game of Thrones It is a series that has us accustomed to being ridiculously violent, bloody and even cruel with its characters (and some would say even with the audience). But there is a death that we did not expect to see, one that seems to have crossed a limit that until now we had not taken into account: they have killed the poor cat of the series.

Do you remember the cat? Perhaps you have forgotten, but if you are a fan of the kittens, it is likely that the image in which the cat climbs to the bed of that child who was also King, Tommen Baratheon, during that uncomfortable scene in which Margaery will soon come to mind. Tyrell tries to seduce him. His name was Ser Pounce, and Cersei Lannister has killed him.

This has been confirmed by David Benioff, one of the creators and responsible for the series, in an interview with Entertainment Weekly, assuring that both Cersei and the series had good reasons to assassinate the poor pussycat.

"Cersei hated the name 'Ser Pounce' so much that, after the death of his son, he simply could not let him live for longer, so it occurred to him to have him executed in such a horrible and cruel way that we could not show it in the Serie".

This is not the first time that a poor little animal dies at the hands of a human in Game of Thrones. In the first season we saw how Dama, the wuargo wolf of Sansa Stark, died at the hands of her father Ned by order of the Queen. At least that death was "merciful", unlike that of poor Pounce, who in the case of Cersei comes to me so horrifying ways in which he may have died that I can not help but bother, even when I prefer dogs. We also have the death of the dragon of Daenerys, killed by the King of the night, but I'm not sure if I should consider him an animal, let alone human leader of the White Walkers.

As for the production of the series, those responsible felt that it was easier to remove the cat from history because "it was difficult to work with him" (as with any animal), also saying, as a kind of macabre joke, that "Cats always have a plan in hand," as if he wanted to stay with the iron throne at the end of the story.

There is a ridiculous theory that said that at the end of Game of Thrones Ser Pounce would be the true Azor Ahai, the hero who will save the world according to prophecy. But after his horrible death, I now expect him to return as the new Cat King of the night and conquer everything that exists from the north of the Wall to King's Landing.

Yes, especially King's Landing. [Entertainment Weekly vía Polygon / Mashable]
