Warning: Minor Spoilers if you have not seen “Game of Thrones” season seven, episode four.
In this week’s episode of “Game of Thrones,” Brienne and Podrick have a bit of sparring time with swords in Winterfell — and it turns out Pod is still truly terrible.

Fans noticed that poor Podrick┬áhasn’t seemed to pick up anything after all of his time spent training with Brienne, and are roasting him for it on Twitter.

Podrick and Brienne have been travelling together since season four, and within that time Podrick’s fighting abilities haven’t made much of an improvement. Time to step it up, Pod.

Here are some of the best tweets about Podrick’s shortcomings:
