Game Of Thrones Season 8 hasn't been like every other season of the show. It has had its moments and while the whole package may not have been perfect, the ending was bittersweet nonetheless. The final episode of the last season of the series aired today and fans all over the world are currently discussing the series finale. While the season finale consisted of only one major character death, it is the scene after Daenerys Targaryen dies that truly caught our eye as her only surviving dragon, Drogon is seen grieving in the most fierce manner ever. The final season has had a lot of its focus on Drogon. He's Dany's biggest and the most powerful dragon who is named after her husband, Khal Drogo.

Drogon is shown to have been protective of Dany right from the start and we have to say, the CGI dragon had some of the best moments on the show in this final season. From giving that stare to Jon Snow in the first episode of Season 8 when he tries to kiss Dany to the big finale, as the dragon unleashes its wrath over King's Landing, we have seen it all.
Here's looking at Drogon' best moments on the final season of the show:
1. The Epic Stare:

One of the best moments from the first episode of the series was when Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryen took away to a secluded spot in the cold and icy Winterfell to steal a kiss. The duo enjoyed a Dragon ride but it was truly amazing when after kissing Dany, Jon opened his eyes, only to see Drogon glaring at him. It was an epic moment as we see an unsettled Jon almost squirming with fear. Game Of Thrones Season 8 Episode 5: Drogon Burns it All and Twitterati Thinks He Deserves the Iron Throne
2. The Wrath of Drogon on King's Landing
Ever since Dragons were introduced to the show, we were waiting to see them in their full battle mode and unfortunately, it was only Drogon who survived till the end but made it all worth with his attack on King's Landing. In the penultimate episode of the show, Drogon was like a fire hose, spitting fire like there was no tomorrow. The dragon gave Dany the power she needed to take down not just Cersei Lannister but the entire King's Landing to the ground. We bet he didn't even need the words 'Dracarys' to spit fire in this war!
3. Killing the 'Iron Throne'

Yes, the death of the 'Iron Throne' came at the hands of Drogon. Considering the Iron Throne is the main reason behind all the wars and betrayals that happened on the show, Drogon managed to do what even the humans on the show couldn't think of, destroy the very symbol of power that binds them all. The last of the betrayal was when Jon Snow stabbed Daenerys Targaryen before she could take over the throne. Mourning over the loss of his mother, Drogon is seen letting out a huge roar of anger and later burns down the Iron Throne, thus melting it with dragon fire in the final episode of the series. This scene is one of the best scenes of the finale and you truly feel Drogon's anger.
4. Drogon's final flight with Daenerys Targaryen

While the mother of dragons has always ridden Drogon with much pride and him being her strength, it was an emotional moment to see Drogon pick up Dany's body and take his last flight away from King's Landing. In the show, we later hear Samwell Tarly say that Drogon was last spotted in the East. It seems like the dragon may have now lost his purpose with Daenerys Targaryen no more.
