This "Game Of Thrones" Character's Return Was Actually Really Upsetting

SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS.

Well, it happened. Despite all hope and fan theories, it turns out the Umbers really did betray the Starks, and Ramsay killed Rickon.

Deep down, we knew it would happen.

The moment Ramsay pulled Rickon out on a rope and suggested a "game", it was over.

BUT WAS IT REALLY NECESSARY?!

RIP Rickon Stark. You deserved better. You deserved so much better... #GameofThrones

Especially SHOWING US SHAGGYDOG AGAIN.

And making it seem, just for a second, that there might actually be hope.

BUT LOOK HOW CLOSE JON AND RICKON CAME.

IT WAS TOO DAMN MUCH.

The worst part is when you remember the last time we saw Rickon and Jon (and, um, so many arrows) together.

THEY WERE SO YOUNG! SO HAPPY! PRECIOUS CINNAMON ROLLS TOO PURE, TOO GOOD FOR THIS WORLD.

AND WHAT ABOUT WHEN BRAN FINDS OUT?!

BRAN IS GONNA FIND OUT AND HE IS GOING TO THINK ABOUT THIS MOMENT HIS WHOLE LIFE AND I AM NOT OKAY #GameOfThrones

Like, it makes zero plot sense for Melisandre to bring Rickon back, but also SHE COULD TRY?!

For real though, Jon Snow clearly didn't enjoy the experience of being brought back to life (as evidenced when he explicitly requested Melisandre to leave him dead if he died again), so he probably wouldn't wish it upon Rickon. He already mentioned burying his baby brother in the crypts, so it's safe to say we've seen the last of him.

You've taken Ned, Catelyn, Robb, and Rickon (not to mention most of the direwolves!)... that's enough now, OK, Game of Thrones?

PLEASE.
