**Spoilers for Game of Thrones season eight, episode six “The Iron Throne” ahead**Game of Thrones has come to an end, with Bran Stark being named King of the Six Kingdoms and Daenerys Targaryen being murdered by her nephew Jon Snow.To perhaps some surprise, Tyrion Lannister survived the entire series and was named Hand of the King. We also see Tyrion at work, joined by Bronn (now Master of Coin), Davos (Master of Ships) and Brienne (Head of the Kingsguard) on the Small Council. After some debating over whether Bronn's money should be spent on brothels, Tyrion makes a familiar joke: "I once brought a jackass and a honeycomb into a brothel."We first heard Tyrion reference taking a "jackass and a honeycomb" into a brothel in season one. While a prisoner of Catelyn Stark and Lisa Arryn, Tyrion begins to make the joke before being interrupted. Then, in season five, while speaking with Grey Worm and Missandei, Tyrion attempts to tell the joke once again. This time, the Maesters returning to Meereen interrupt. Tyrion's last line, then, is a callback to a dirty joke that no one has yet heard. The Independent’s critic called the finale “misjudged and hammy”, and criticised the episode for “lacking emotional resolution”. Emilia Clarke, whose character Daenerys finally perished during the episode, has said “it was a f***ing struggle reading the scripts” but that the character’s final moments were “very taken care of… it’s a very beautiful and touching ending”.You can find a ranking of every character – from worst best – here.

Unless you've been living under a rock, you'll probably be aware that Game of Thrones ended on Sunday night. Following the show's tremendous success, it's no secret that the cast of the hit fantasy HBO epi-drama were paid pretty damn well. Pre season 8, the core cast members, including Emilia Clarke and Kit Harington, were all apparently making a rather decent $500,000 (£370,000) per episode, but reports have suggested top cast members bagged a rather handsome pay rise: an extra $200,000 (£151,000) per episode.
