While her murder wasn't shown onscreen, a deleted scene revealed who really killed Daenerys handmaiden Irri in Game Of Thrones season 2. Game Of Thrones is based on a series of fantasy books by George R.R. Martin, which were renowned for their great characters, rich mythology and shocking twists. The HBO adaptation debuted in 2011 and within a few years it had become one of the biggest shows on the planet. Thanks to fantastic casting - including Lena Headey, Sean Bean, and Peter Dinklage - and a large budget, Martin's work was vividly brought to life.

Game Of Thrones featured some seminal TV moments, such as the shock execution of Ned Stark in season 1 to the infamous Red Wedding in season 3. The show eventually outpaced its source, with season 6 onwards made up of original material. Game Of Thrones came to an end in 2019, with the finale sharply dividing critics and fans. The final season was seen by many to be rushed and unsatisfying, though some fans were also happy with the ending and how it left the character. A prequel pilot called The Long Winter was greenlit and filmed, though HBO decided not to move forward with the series. Instead, another prequel show dubbed House Of The Dragon has been given a ten-episode order.

Following the death of Khal Drago (Jason Momoa, Aquaman) in season 1, Game Of Thrones season 2 found Daenerys, her khalasar and newly hatched dragons taking refuge in the city of Qarth. This is where she befriends merchant Xaro Xhonn Daxos - who proves to be quite untrustworthy. This season found Daenerys learning some painful lessons about trust and leadership. In episode 6 "The Old Gods and the New," Daenerys returns to her chamber to find her dragons are gone and kindly handmaiden Irri (Amrita Acharia) dead. Irri's true killer is never revealed, but a deleted scene revealed it was Doreah who strangled her.

Doreah (Roxanne McKee, Strike Back) was another of Danerys handmaidens, who disappears after this attack and is presumed dead. It's later revealed she betrayed Daenerys and allied with Xaro Xhonn Daxos, and in revenge, Daenerys locks them both in his vault to die. Irri's Game Of Thrones murder was probably cut to maintain the surprise of Doreah's betrayal, who reveals a sadistic side while she strangles the poor handmaiden to death.

Given the eventual reveal of Doreah's betrayal, it's not a major surprise to learn she killed Irri too, but this Game Of Thrones deleted scene at least confirmed it for curious viewers.
