- Drogon featured in one of the most powerful scenes
- After Dany was killed, Drogon mourned over her corpse
- Drogon has been top trend on Twitter India all of Monday morning
Spoiler alert! The most powerful scene in the Game Of Thrones finale is Drogon burning down the Iron Throne with dragon fire, something which was heart-breaking indeed but gave rise to certain memes on Twitter. Drogon, Daenerys Targaeryn's last surviving dragon, trended on Twitter India all on Monday morning, particularly for two reasons - 2) for his symbolic burning down of the throne that was pretty much responsible for all great wars, all the billion deaths and lastly, Dany's transformation into the 'mad queen'; b) after Jon drives a dagger through Dany's heart, Drogon flew into the throne room and nudged Danny's corpse and billowed out fuming cries in grief.
Now, here's how Twitter reacted. "Drogon showed more emotions than Bran," read a tweet while another added: "Drogon should get a Best Supporting Actor nomination."

Twitter also agreed that Drogon mourning Dany's death made everyone's heart ache with pain.

Jon may have stabbed Daenerys, but it was her hunger for power that killed her.

Everything about the GoT finale was trash minus Drogon scenes.— Spice. (@Wes_sinceDay1) May 20, 2019
This was the most heartbreaking scene. Drogon trying to wake his mom.— Sammy (@SamKelvin5) May 20, 2019
Jon was ready to be roasted to ashes but Drogon went for that iron throne that caused all these.
Besides what's the need of killing whom his mom loved.

Seeing the Iron Throne melt into mere nothing, Drogon carefully picked up Dany and flew off through the broken walls of the Red Keep, leaving fans speculating where exactly he's headed. In one of the ending scenes, the King's counsel reveals that he was spotted flying East and East of King's Landing lies Valyria. While nothing can be said for certain but Valyria is the where the Targaryns and in turn, Dany ("of the blood of Old Valyria"), is from. In a very suggestive move, the makers perhaps hinted that Drogon is taking Dany back to her real home.
