Well, folks… it’s over.
The finale of Game of Thrones aired Sunday night, and, needless to say, there was a lot to unpack.
Twitter was buzzing with opinions about the series’ final hour and a half throughout the night, with fans sharing their thoughts on the finale’s biggest moments — including that [SPOILERS] heartbreaking death, the new ruler who was crowned, the returning character who inexplicably grew up to be hot, and a certain knight turned blogger.
Ch-ch-check out the best reactions (below)!

Seriously all I thought Brienne was opening that book to write her own entry and when instead she smiled and added to Jaime’s, I died, resurrected myself and decided to start my own country of all women, join me

So Bran gets to be king, despite the fact that he just put his name on the group project and didn’t do any work. #DemThrones

Queen In The North
Sansa Stark also made Westeros history by declaring that the North would be its own kingdom… which she would go on to rule, obvi.

But before that, she viciously shut down Uncle Edmure Tully’s candidacy to be the next king:

Long Live queen Daenerys
Naturally, quite a few people were upset with how Daenerys Targaryen was handled this past season; particularly in the penultimate episode, when she suddenly burned King’s Landing to the ground.
The Mother of Dragons didn’t fare well in the finale, either, as she was killed by Jon Snow after he received one “we should probs kill her now” pep talk from Tyrion Lannister. Like Drogon, fans were pissed:

But many found a suitable coping mechanism: to ignore Season eight Dany completely and give nothing but respect for THEIR (Seasons one – seven) Khaleesi:
Daenerys Stormborn of the House Targaryen.
First of Her Name.
Queen of the Andals and the First Men.
Khaleesi of the Great Grass Sea.
Breaker of Chains.
Mother of Dragons.
Thank you for an incredible 8 seasons #GameOfThrones ♥
