Warning: spoilers ahead for Sunday’s episode of “Game of Thrones.”
HBO’s “Game of Thrones” gave fans a lot to talk about during Sunday’s episode, titled “Book of the Stranger.”

While several big reunions took place, we lost a fan favourite when Osha (Natalia Tena) gave her life in an attempt to take down Ramsay Bolton (Iwan Rheon). Plus, the episode ended in a blaze of glory as Daenarys (Emilia Clarke) got some major respect from the Dothraki.

But which moments had fans talking the most?

Social-media monitoring platform Brandwatch found nearly 60,000 “Thrones”-related mentions on Twitter during the one-hour episode and identified the moments when conversation peaked.

Here are the five most talked-about moments from the latest “Game of Thrones” episode:
