The highly anticipated series finale of “Game of Thrones” aired on Sunday night and the ending was just as divisive as the rest of season eight has been. Although many fans felt the finale didn’t exactly live up to their expectations, there were still so many moments worth talking about.
One of those moments was when Ser Brienne of Tarth, who was now Lord Commander of Kingsguard to Bran the Broken, sat in front of the Book of Brothers (the book that highlights the achievements of knights in Westeros) to complete Jaime Lannister’s life story, which is titled “Kingslayer.”
It was an especially powerful scene since the last time Jaime and Brienne were together, she lost her virginity to him and he left her to be with his sister, Cersei Lannister. Plus, this moment was seemingly a callback to a season-four scene in which Jaime and Brienne stood near the book and Jaime told her, “It’s the duty of the Lord Commander to fill those pages. There’s still room left on mine.”
Although viewers were able to read the kind words Brienne wrote about Jaime, fans couldn’t help but imagine the things she could’ve written or done instead.
Here’s a look at some of the best Brienne jokes and memes from the final episode of “Game of Thrones.” Of course, there are some major spoilers ahead.
A lot of people imagined what Brienne should have actually been writing in the book and it was straight out of ‘Mean Girls’
