The cast of Game of Thrones really knows how to get us to bring out the tissues––and that's even after we've somehow survived yet another emotional and gobsmacking episode.


Picture it: The moment Bran Stark, better known as the Three-Eyed Raven, waited for the Night King to approach him in the godswood. Protecting Bran to the bitter end was Theon Greyjoy, whose attempt to spear the iciest bad guy in all of Westeros proved fruitless.

But this doesn't mean Theon died without honor. He went to his death––in fact, he charged right at it––after Bran, a young man of few words, thanked him and called him "a good man."

Theon's death, beautifully acted by actor Alfie Allen, was a profoundly emotional one for fans across the world.

Allen's costar Sophie Turner, who plays Sansa Stark, the Lady of the North herself, soon paid tribute to him on Instagram.

Theon's come a long way from his days as Ned Stark's ward, but his life was an often emotionally and physically torturous one. He lived with the Starks after he was taken captive following the failed Greyjoy rebellion. He remained loyal to the Starks even after the war against the Lannisters began.

But his story took ever darker turns once he was captured, castrated and kept prisoner by Ramsay Snow, the bastard son of Roose Bolton. Along the way, Theon reacquainted himself with the Greyjoys and the remaining Ironborn, but never felt like he truly had a home, and often found himself on the receiving end of backlash amidst increasing political tension.

Yet, he saved many of our favorite characters more than once, and he returned to Winterfell, where he died a hero, a "good man" in the company of people who considered him family in a world of fractured alliances.

Turner's post hit us all right in the feelings.

He definitely did.

Tributes to Theon––and Allen's stellar performance––have also rolled in on social media.





Farewell, Theon. What is dead may never die.

If you've never seen the comedy classic, "Monty Python and the Holy Grail," there is a scene where Arthur, King of the Britons, encounters a black knight guarding a bridge. Arthur quickly figures out the stalwart knight will not let him pass, so the two do battle, with the king severely injuring his enemy in the process.

He cuts off all his arms and legs.

Yet the black knight persists, insisting his injuries are, "but a scratch."

Turns out this happens to people in real life, not so much with swords and knights, but with can openers and ice skates.

We are currently in a market that favors workers over employers – many workers feel empowered to seek out different positions and have reevaluated what they want in their careers amid the financial fallout of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Many workers left their jobs in search of greener pastures because they were ready for a change, and others were more than happy to leave behind toxic workplaces that only burned them out.

As you can imagine, they've become rather adept at noticing red flags during the interview process and beyond.

People shared their thoughts with us after Redditor taylortaylortaylorrr asked the online community,

"What is a red flag from an employer that people might not immediately recognize as a red flag?"

Computers are not everyone's strong suit. Generation z is now reaching adulthood, and they've had computers, smart phones, and iPads since birth.

For anyone in an older generation, this wasn't the case. Computers weren't even advertised for the home until the Superbowl of 1984, and even then it was priced at $2,500.

Come the turn of the 21st century, computers are a staple in the home, but the advancements in the last two decades have left some people scrambling to keep up. Things that might seem basic to some are shockingly uncommon to others.
