It’s the end of a period: “Game of Thrones” is officially over. After a poorly rated final season, the series finale of the show aired on Sunday night, and fans definitely had thoughts. The very last episode of the series tied up some loose ends while still leaving many questions open to explanation. It gave us one key character death and even led to a new ruler.
But most significantly, it gave us all some hilarious memes and jokes to watch online so we couldn’t feel too heartbreaking about the show being over.
We first had to watch Tyrion’s most emotional journey yet, which wasn’t easy

Did you guys remember the acting of Tyrion Lannister (Peter) here. His acting, his emotions was so powerful. He was crying because he knows he tried his best just to protect his family but he failed.

The saddest part of Daenerys and Jon Snow’s scene was Drogon’s reaction

Jon killing Dany was emotional, but others found some humor
Dany: Lets break the wheel together.
— Heauxgan (@Matt_Hogan5) May 20, 2019
Everyone was confused about why Drogon didn’t kill Jon
Jon Snow: *Kills Dany*

Sam tried to be fair, but no one wanted to hear it

He also apparently invented plastic water bottles
So Sam had a plastic water bottle in the final scene where the heads of houses debated and made Bran king. pic.twitter.com/ALHSKb0bne

Sansa, queen of the perfect one-liners, shot down her uncle, and everyone loved it

the main theme of Game of Thrones finally became clear in the finale: the importance of breastfeeding to grow up big and strong pic.twitter.com/axazLAnW58

But the biggest moment of the night was when Bran decided he did want to be king after all, despite never having shown any interest in it
bran: i’m the three eyed raven now, i can’t be anything else, i can’t be lord of winterfell, i don’t want anything anymore.
tyrion: do you want to be king?

And users had thoughts about Tyrion’s name for him
tyrion: “everyone is just gonna call you ‘the broken’ now, like forever”
bran (thousand yard stare): ok

They really called that man Bran the Broken I- pic.twitter.com/9yH7dIVAzr
— Ramadan 'Reek (@TuhRxxk) May 20, 2019
Can't believe they really out here calling Bran "Bran the Broken".
Bran the Wise?
Bran the Time Traveler?
Bran the Raven Man?
Bran the Intense Eye Contact Mans?

Also, Brienne wrote about Jaime, and everyone imagined what she probably should have written

Viewers were left with a lot of legitimate questions
So where did Arya ride the horse? Why did longclaw blink? Who is the Azor Ahai? Why was Jon brought back to life?? who was the green eyes from Melisandres prediction? Why is there so many blanks for a shite happy ending?
— H1 Giantsbane (@H1Babyy) May 20, 2019
Things I will die wondering about:
– The Three Eyed Raven
– Azor Ahai
– The Faceless Men
– The Lord of Light
– Children of the Forest
– The Drowned God

Still, fans had to admit there were some good moments, like Ser Davos’ character development

And Jon and Ghost’s perfect reunion

This is basically true

Of course, Sansa’s new position as Queen of the North was what everyone wanted to see
— emma lord (@dilemmalord) May 20, 2019
Plus, at least the Starks ended up where they pretty much wanted to be

In conclusion, this will be everyone next week
