Game of Thrones is a battle between families — and sometimes even leaves family members on opposite sides (*cough* Tyrion). So we totally understand how the most recent dragon battle could pit people against one another IRL. In just one example, the actor who plays Bronn says his mailman is very upset about the whole Drogon thing. And as huge fans of Game of Thrones, we totally get it.

In the Game of Thrones, Season 7 episode “The Spoils of War,” we got to see Drogon attack the Lannister loot train as the Lannister forces made their way back to King’s Landing. It was a stunning and amazing scene (this behind-the-scenes video tells you how they pulled it off), which culminated in Bronn (played by Jerome Flynn) shooting Drogon down with a huge arrow shot out of a cannon-type contraption. Understandably, all of us dragon-lovers were immediately angry with him. And apparently so was someone close to Flynn.

Flynn recently told HBO’s Making Game of Thrones about reactions to the episode, and that scene in particular:

Well, yeah! You can’t just shoot a dragon and think we’ll be okay with it. Luckily, it appears like Drogon will be fine, but in Game of Thrones, one really never knows what’s going to happen next. For the mailman’s sake, we certainly hope Drogon is okay.
