What Does Game of Thrones Have In Store for Grey Worm and Missandei's Relationship?

When you think of Game of Thrones, chances are you imagine Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryen, or Cersei and Tyrion Lannister. However, there are plenty of characters who we love (or love to hate) just as much, even though they have far less screen time. Case in point: Grey Worm and Missandei.

With all the craziness happening in Westeros, we often forget how great a story this pair has. Grey Worm, who was once only known for his skills in combat, showed his soft side when falling in love with Dany's handmaiden and advisor, Missandei. And it seems their romance will play a part in the final season, though we're not sure to what extent.

When asked about the future of the couple's relationship, Jacob Anderson—the actor who plays Grey Worm—told Metro:

"We’ll just have to see. I think that that is quite a big part of that character’s story, his relationship with Missandei. So it’s fair to assume that’ll be a factor in the next season. But there’s a lot going on so …"

Anderson went on to recall his "heartbreaking" final moments on set, echoing the sentiments of so many of his fellow Game of Thrones cast members. "When you’re shooting for that long, I was ready to finish when we finished, but at the same time I’m really going to miss everybody I’ve been working with," Anderson said. "It was an emotional day. I cried. It’s been a big part of my life."

"Everybody kind of got a send-off," he added. "It almost feels wrong to talk about it because it was all so personal for everybody. It was lovely. It was a really nice way to finish things the way that we did."

The Office Writers Considered Making Michael Scott a Murderer, According to Greg Daniels

Greg Daniels is best known as the showrunner of The Office, a job that earned him two of his four Emmys. As reported by Screen Rant, the acclaimed creator dished in a recent interview with The Guardian about why the American version of the much-loved show almost wasn't made, along with a proposed plot twist for Michael Scott that forced Daniels to put his foot down.

"The UK version hadn’t finished airing and I’d never heard of it. My agent sent me a VHS tape of season one. It had a somewhat boring title so I didn’t look at it. He told me he wanted to show it to someone else if I wasn’t interested, so I popped it in. I watched the entire first series that evening," Daniels said.

As the show really got going after Steve Carell's role in The 40-Year-Old Virgin made him a household name, Daniels said some ideas in the writers room got too wacky for their own good. He recalled one particular instance, saying, “There were times where [the writers] would become enamored with a joke, and I'd have to put my foot down. For instance, they really wanted Michael to kill Meredith with his car. That was an early pitch, where he runs her over in the parking lot and then comes back, gets a tire iron and finishes the job. I was like, 'You can’t do that, that’s crazy!'”

Michael being a murderer certainly would have changed the tone of the show, so it makes sense that it never happened. Imagine the courtroom scenes we would have had to endure! The Scranton Strangler storyline would have paled in comparison.
