Okay, the thing about the killer butterflies is from the books, not the tv show. But.... her island is the place I'm talking about Christopher. Naath.

From a GoT Wikia:


 QUOTE:
A large species of butterfly on Naath is a carrier for a horrific disease that makes the flesh literally slough off of a man's bones, but the Naathi themselves are immune to it. For centuries, would-be foreign invaders would end up succumbing to the "butterfly fever", and the Naathi say none maintained a presence on the island for more than a single year. It also deterred slavers for generations. However, slavers eventually realized that if they only stayed on the island for a few hours in quick raids and then departed with captives, they would not contract the disease - and better still if they attacked only at night, because the butterflies are only active during the daylight hours. Naath has still technically never been "conquered" by outside forces due to fear of staying too long and catching the butterfly fever, but otherwise the island's society has been severely damaged by frequent slaver raids.

The Unsullied are toast.

I was quite happy with the finale. It made sense to me. As killer of Daeneris Jon couldn't be king now matter how we all wanted him to be. My problems with this season were episode 1 and 2 in which almost nothing really happened...and how two dragons were so lame against the whitewalkers and only one dragon was so efffective against King's Landing. Also I would have liked Arya to kill Cersei in the crypt. I'm very sad to see this come to an end. Don't know what the spinoff series will be. Arya the little explorer ? I didn't remember anything about Naath ... Is the butterfly thing only in the books ?

Obviously the butterflies on Naath aren’t a factor in the TV show ‘reality’.  Why would Missandei offer to take the love of her life to a place that would kill him?

Cool story though...

While the pacing was off the past two seasons, with resolutions far too quick for my taste, I am ultimately satisfied. The very best tv has given us and I hope it inspires even better shows to come.

Yeah, if my biggest complaint was there wasn't an entire season between the penultimate episode and the finale, I couldn't have been too disappointed.
