After 10 years of anticipation and wait and a lot of fan theories, the season finale of Game of Thrones aired last night, Sunday, May 19th. And we have many thoughts. While most fans were expecting the series would give a satisfying end to this amazing story, the finale—and Season 8 in general—were remarkably divisive and not up to the mark at all.
From Tyrion’s continued string of stupid ideas to Jaime’s final decision to return to Cersei’s side, to Dany’s arguably silly turn into the Mad Queen and unexpected death at Jon’s hand, many feel that Game of Thrones failed its most important characters. And all season long, they’ve made some pretty solid memes about the show.
All in all, it was a disappointing end to a beautiful story.

So what was Bran doing while warging during the Battle of Winterfell? What did Varys's letters do? How did the city react when they found out Jon killed Dany? Why wasn't there a battle between Jon and Grey Worm after he killed her?? The writers: #gameofthrones #GOTFinale pic.twitter.com/TgpEBwcZk3
