Fans had very high expectations for the third episode of season eight of “Game of Thrones,” which aired Sunday, and luckily for them, The Battle of Winterfell was packed with intense moments, devastating setbacks, heartbreak, and triumph.
While the entire episode was more than worthy of the internet’s attention, it was the shocking ending that really had everyone freaking out. Arya Stark proved that she really is one of the most powerful people in Westeros, and despite staring off into the distance most of the time, Bran Stark played his own part as well.
The internet reacted to the twist with the appropriate memes and jokes that will make you want to rewatch the episode all over again. Check out some of the best moments of the episode in meme form, but beware: major spoilers ahead for anyone who hasn’t watched it yet.
