It’s the end of an era: “Game of Thrones” is officially over. After a poorly rated final season, the series finale of the show aired on Sunday night, and fans certainly had thoughts.

The very last episode of the series tied up some loose ends while still leaving many questions open to interpretation. It gave us one major character death and even led to a new ruler.

But most importantly, it gave us all some funny memes and jokes to look at online so we couldn’t feel too sad about the show being over.

Take a look, and, of course, know that there are major spoilers ahead:

We first had to watch Tyrion’s most emotional journey yet, which wasn’t easy^tfw

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

Jon killing Dany was emotional, but others found some humour

Everyone was confused about why Drogon didn’t kill Jon

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

He also apparently invented plastic water bottles

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

Viewers couldn’t help but notice that Robin Arryn looked pretty different

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^tfw

And users had thoughts about Tyrion’s name for him

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

Arya went on quite an unexpected journey

At least there was justice for Sansa

Viewers were left with a lot of legitimate questions

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

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

Plus, at least the Starks ended up where they pretty much wanted to be^tfw

In conclusion, this will be everyone next week
