The second episode of the final season of “Game of Thrones” aired on Sunday and certainly did not disappoint fans who were looking to see more of Tormund, everyone’s favourite wildling who has proven himself to be something of a feminist.
Despite the fact that the Army of the Dead would be attacking Winterfell within hours, Tormund was only concerned about one thing: finding Brienne of Tarth. Some of his best moments of the episode included him telling a slightly uncomfortable story about growing up with giants and him cheering on Brienne during her moment of glory.
Of course, the internet reacted by creating some perfect memes and jokes about Tormund, Brienne, and basically the entire group at Winterfell, and some were too good to ignore. Warning: spoilers ahead for this week’s episode.
Tormund started off his most charming episode yet by literally tackling Jon Snow with a huge bear hug

Even though he came to Winterfell to deliver some bad news to Jon, he really only cared about one thing: finding, and wooing, Brienne

Tormund, aggressively horny as the world is ending, is the only relatable character on this show.

Tormund quickly realised that he had some competition in Jaime Stark, and his reaction was perfect

The internet could not handle Tormund’s absolutely wild story about where his nickname, Giantsbane, came from
Wow Tormund has a giant oedipus complex

While others were emotional about that moment between Theon and Sansa
Theon to Daenerys: hi
Theon to Sansa: I’ve missed you so much. You’re my best friend. I would do anything for you. You’re my ride or die. My cinnamon apple. I think about you all the time. I would love and die for you. You are my reason for living. #GameOfThrones

But everyone shared a similar dread that next week’s episode will be tough to watch
Part of me wishes they would just end #GameofThrones after last night's episode. It was so happy. And conclusive! The end! No need for battles! Everyone lives, right?? RIGHT!? ????????????????????????????????????????
