Rhaegal death: Here is how Daenerys’ dragon Rhaegal death happened on Game of Thrones Season 8, episode 4 and how fans are so devastated.
I can’t get over Rhaegal’s death. Nevermind that he’s a CG dragon, his last scene just strikes me as incredible cruel and cheap.
You have the swelling, triumphant music that suggests everythings fine only to watch him get skewered repeatedly.
That is a comment from a fan after watching Game of Thrones Season 8 episode 4 some minutes ago.
Rhaegal death: How Daenerys’ dragon Rhaegal died:
Daenerys’ dragon Rhaegal was shot and killed by Euron’s army during Game of Thrones Season 8, Episode 4.
Euron’s fleet secretly attacked Dany as she was making her way to King’s Landing. They killed Rhaegal in the process by shooting him in the chest and neck while he was flying around next to Dany.
Watching Daenerys’ dragon Rhaegal splash into the sea and drown was harrowing. He wasn’t turned into an undead zombie dragon.
Is Rhaegal dead?
Rhaegal is dead. Rhaegal death was confirmed by Brienne when she broke the news to Sansa and Jaime at Winterfell toward the end of GOT episode 4, She said:
“One of the dragons was killed.”
Drogon is Dany’s only remaining dragon after Rhaegal became the second of Dany’s three dragons to die Game of Thrones Season 8. Viserion died at the Battle of Winterfell after Arya killed the Night King.
