Let's Show Some Appreciation For the Battle of Winterfell's Tiniest Badass, Lyanna Mormont
Warning: Serious Game of Thrones spoilers ahead. Proceed with caution.
Let's all raise a glass to the tiniest Game of Thrones badass, Lyanna Mormont. Going into the Battle of Winterfell, we were hopeful about the fate of the mighty leader of House Mormont, but alas, Lyanna met a cruel end during season eight's third episode.
Lyanna protected Winterfell castle with her whole heart, even after being cast aside by a giant wight. She came face-to-face with the giant once more, and as her body was crushed in its hand, she plunged a dagger into its eye. A small but powerful lady, indeed. When the Night King raised the dead in Winterfell, Lyanna walked again, but we'll always remember her as the intimidating leader who stood up to Jon Snow.
Fans could hardly handle her heartbreaking death, although this is far from the first time the GoT writers have killed off a child — Shireen, anyone? Ahead, see a few of the reactions to Lyanna's departure. She served the North well.
