Well y'all, we did it. It's been eight long years, but now our watch has ended. *Deep exhale*
No matter what you thought of the final season (and the final episode), we really do have to give this dumb show credit for bringing us all together, week after week, year after year. SORRY, I have to get a little mushy! I mean, this was literally the longest relationship I've ever been in. But now, let's get to this recap.
To be honest, I came across a few leaked spoilers about the finale beforehand, so not all of the events shocked me in real time. At this point though, didn't we all just throw our hands up and expect to be a little disappointed? It was mostly a happy sign-off for all our favorites (unless you were still really rooting for Dany), and though it may not have been the ending we wanted, it was the one the characters needed (and hey, at least Jon finally got to pet Ghost!).
Before I desperately start searching for a new obsession to chase away the Sunday scaries, here are my thoughts.
1. Wonder if the opening credits are going to show King's Landing IN RUINS.
2. OK guess not. Let's get this over with.
3. This must be reaaally awkward for you, huh Tyrion?
4. OMG look that guy's back! This is horrible I'm actually really mad.
5. Big Pompeii energy.
6. Fuck you, Grey Worm.
7. Oh I KNOW y'all didn't just pull your weapons out on my man just now. PUT THAT SHIT AWAY.
8. Poor Ser Davos. He just wants everyone to chill.
9. Ugh. Grey Worm really had to do it. War, what is it good for?
10. Where's Daenerys? Does she even feel guilty?
11. Wow. Lots of silence. That's how you know it's serious.
12. Tyrion's really going to look for Cersei right now??
13. How does he even know they're down there? I mean yeah he told them the escape plan but she could have gotten crushed like ten times on the way down.
14. OK, this room doesn't look nearly as bad as it should...
15. Not the hand!!!
So Jamie and Cersei could have lived if they moved a little to the left?

17. All those bricks but that Lannister bone structure survived. Respect.
18. Peter Dinklage is truly the real MVP of this show. Give him all the Emmys.
19. Ugh the Dothraki are celebrating!? I hate them all now.
20. Kill everyone Arya.
21. How did Grey Worm get there before Jon?
22. OK I'M SO MAD AT HER BUT THIS WAS SICK:
23. Why did they have to do this to me? Why did they have to make me hate the Khaleesi???
24. Having a dragon as your hype man really adds to your speeches.
25. Liberated... is that what you're calling it??
26. I'm sorry did you just say..... the war is not over?
27. BITCH DID YOU JUST SAY WINTERFELL??
28. OK yeah she doesn't seem very remorseful.
29. Tell her, Tyrion!!
30. AWP the Unsullied know there's about to be some drama. They stopped pounding their spears real quick.
31. God, Arya, where did you just come from?
32. Where is Dany even walking to?! Her new rubble?
33. Jon really has the nerve to ask Arya, "What happened?" YA GIRLFRIEND AUNT HAPPENED, JON.
34. Gotta hand it to Tyrion, he knows his priorities: wine.
35. He's realllyyy still saying she's not her father?! DID YOU JUST SEE WHAT HAPPENED?
36. "Sometimes duty is the death of love." SAD but yeah, kill her, Jon.
37. DAMN DROGON, DIDN'T SEE YOU THERE.
38. Wow Dany, there it is. The Eames chair of your dreams.
39. You're really gonna need to hire a construction team now. Can the unsullied lay bricks?
40. It was really unhealthy how much y'all talked about fallen enemies as children.
41. Oop, that feel-good story didn't have the effect you thought it would.
42. Who's doing Dany's braids now that Missandei is gone tho?
43. "YoU ArE mY qUeEn."
44. OOF THERE IT IS.
45. That was a very elegant blood drop.
46. IT HAD TO BE DONE, JON.
47. Oh shit, Drogon is not gonna be happy with you..
48. OK OK MY HEART
Okay, but this hit a little too hard#GameOfThrones pic.twitter.com/Kgcq3m84PT

61. Damn, Gendry looks good. How did we not get to see his and Arya's reunion?!
62. Well, this is awkward.
63. Who even is this guy?!
63. a) Ooooh it's Edmure Tully. The guy whose wedding was being "celebrated" during the Red Wedding. Totally forgot about him. Guess Arya freed him when she killed the Freys?
64. Sooo embarrassing omg.
65. LMAO SANSA.
