[Why was Rakharo killed in this episode?]
Pointless death if you ask me!
He doesn't die in the books . George RR Martin may be killing all of our favourite characters but he is doing it to serve a purpose. The north would have never rebelled if not for Ned Stark's death and Dany would have never found the power and courage to become who she is if she hasn't lost Drogo and her baby.
What purpose does Rakharo's death serve? Irri will get super pissed and sail out to conquer Essos?
