If any character on Game of Thrones has a 100% approval rating among viewers it’s Bronn… or rather he had unanimous support before last week’s explosive “The Spoils of War,” where he got behind Qyburn’s scorpion and fired a shot into the side of Drogon. Because even if you still love him despite almost killing a dragon at least one person was not okay with it, actor Jerome Flynn‘s mailman.In a post-episode interview Flynn did with the show’s production diary “Making Game of Thrones,” where he discussed how much fun it was filming the sequence and how he felt when he saw it all come together, he dropped this little nugget into just how much some people love dragons.
“I was surprised when I was watching it. I spent weeks on that sequence, but I was on the edge of my seat, the adrenaline was running–they really nailed it. Although since the day the battle aired, Iâ€™ve been a little unpopular, I have to say. My postman wonâ€™t speak to me because I shot the dragon.”
We understand why people have such strong feelings about Daenerys’ dragons (because they’re freaking dragons), but that postman is way out of line. What was Bronn supposed to do? Just sit there and wait to go up in dragonflame?Way out of line.If we had a chance to speak with Flynn we’d tell him how impressed we were by his marksmanship with a weapon he clearly had very little time to train with, especially because Flynn really did fire it on set.I mean, nobody has successfully brought down a dragon in over 150 years. Who wouldn’t want to talk about that?
