Meera Reed was a crucial character in Bran Stark’s storyline but where did she end up in Season 8?
With such a plethora of characters, Game of Thrones became one of the most sprawling and densely population fantasy worlds we’ve seen since Peter Jackson’s Lord of the Rings film series.
The world we visited each week felt real, lived in and the show’s character played a huge part in doing so.
However, as the final few seasons aimed to streamline the show, telling only the most important storylines, a lot of that dense and richly-populate world was lost somewhat as well as several of the show’s characters who were very much pushed to the periphery.
One such character was Meera Reed, played by Ellie Kendrick.
Who was Meera Reed?
We first met Meera and her brother Jojen way back in Season 3 of the HBO show and she became integral to Bran Stark’s storyline and helping the crippled boy get north of The Wall in order to find the mysterious Three-Eyed Raven.
As the show went on however, Meera’s role became less prominent as Bran’s story was nudged to the side in favour of more pressing matters. That was until Season 6 when the young Stark’s story started to take on more prominence and Meera, alongside Bran’s other travelling companion Hodor, got more of a chance to shine.
Meera helped stave of the Night King’s Army of the Dead in order to save Bran who had at this point become the Three-Eyed Raven himself, a mystical being who could see all of Westeros’s past and present.
When did we last see Meera Reed?
We last saw Meera at Winterfell in Season 7 when she and Bran went separate ways after finally making their way back south once again.
The last piece of information we have regarding Meera’s whereabouts as the final season came to an end this weekend was also given to us during her and Bran’s final meeting in Season 7.
Where is Meera Reed in Season 8?
After the pair return south of The Wall, Meera explains that she wants to be back home at Greywater Watch in order to be with her family when the White Walkers and the Night King’s undead army make their way south as well.
Therefore, we have to assume that the character was there during the events of Game of Thrones’ final season. It’ll be interesting to see if Meera has a different fate in George R.R. Martin’s books when he finally gets around to finishing the final two instalments in the series.
