Dany turned conquerer.

Game of Thrones is over (well kinda, we still have prequels and spin-offs to come) and people are a little upset.

Recap - Episode - CNET - Rundown - End

It wasn't great. For a full recap of the episode, you can read CNET's finale rundown. If you just want to see who survived until the end, we've got that list ready to go too.

And if you want to see the memes and the straight fire from Twitter, read on.


Spoilers incoming!

So that was definitely an episode of television. I don't know where to start. Let's break it up by sections.

Opening - Episode - Dany - Entrance

The opening of this episode was strong. We had Dany turn up with an absolutely show-stopping entrance...

And after a bit of discussion and a walk through the carnage, Tyrion Lannister gave up his brooch. He didn't wanna be the hand/sheriff no more.

Scene - Tyrion - Lannister - Jon - Snow

Then there was a lengthy, but also pretty well-acted scene where Tyrion Lannister and Jon Snow reasoned out the pros and cons of absolutely stabbing Daenerys Targaryen in the back for her insane war crimes.

Jon Snow did the same tortured "what should I do with this moral quandary" face he's been doing for eight long seasons, and then he did what he always does: the right thing. In this case murder by loving knife in the belly.

Stabbing - Part - Drogon - Period - Which

That was bad enough (the stabbing I mean). Then the worst part: Drogon's mourning period. Which involved a lot of fire and a complete melting of the Iron Throne.

At this point, things seemed good. Good episode, decent-ish writing, good performances. This was the high point of the episode. The Dany death scene was great, Drogon's reaction was great. Sweet, we're getting the Jon Snow ending, right?


This is the point where things went off...
