Remember how upset you got when you reached the end of Avengers: Infinity War and you discovered that half of your favourite characters were wiped out at the click of a finger? Remember how painful it was to see Groot disappear?
Well, you have no idea how painful that scene truly was. But you’re about to!
Guardians of the Galaxy director, James Gunn has revealed Groot’s final line – the line he said to Rocket just as he bit the big one.
You may need tissues for this.
Yesterday, author Joe Green (aka @TheMoonBearMan) took to Twitter to ask Gunn what Groot’s final line was.
Surprisingly, Gunn answered…
Yep, Groot’s final line to Rocket, just before he died (again), was “Dad”.
Hits you right in the feels, doesn’t it?
It kind of makes sense that Groot would see Rocket as a father figure; after all, he has been looking after him since he became a sapling, but this confirmation kind of makes his death that little bit more heartbreaking. Rocket hasn’t just lost a friend, he’s lost a son.
And you thought Spidey’s death was hard to handle!
Someone pass those tissues around.
