Warning, spoilers for Game of Thrones Season 8 and the series finale ahead!
After nearly a decade of anticipation and a lot of fan theories, the season finale of Game of Thrones aired last night, Sunday, May 19th. And we have a LOT of thoughts. While most fans were hopeful the series would deliver a satisfying end to the epic saga, the finale—and Season 8 in general—were extremely divisive.
From Tyrion’s continued string of bad ideas, to Jaime’s final decision to return to Cersei’s side, to Dany’s arguably clunky turn into the Mad Queen and surprising death at Jon’s hand, many feel that Game of Thrones failed its most major characters. And all season long, they’ve generated some pretty solid (and scathing) memes about the show.
Here are some of the angriest Game of Thrones memes from the final season.

So what was Bran doing while warging during the Battle of Winterfell? What did Varys's letters do? How did the city react when they found out Jon killed Dany? Why wasn't there a battle between Jon and Grey Worm after he killed her?? The writers: #gameofthrones #GOTFinale pic.twitter.com/TgpEBwcZk3— Heather (@HGPHeather) May 20, 2019
Farewell, Game of Thrones. Our Sunday nights will never be the same.
