“Game of Thrones” has superceded being labeled as a cultural icon — the show has created a cultural movement around it and has taken us all hostage.
The show, which has returned for its eighth and final season, was met with tons of excitement, anxiety, fear and, after some very funny interactions, laughter.
In full throttle, the show caught viewers by surprise on Sunday evening when it revealed everything it did.
And as we’ve come to expect, Twitter was nothing short of the place to be. From memes to reaction pictures and videos, GoT audiences proved you can’t escape the show.
So we’ve compiled 15 of the best reactions, memes, photos, videos and references that came out of Sunday night’s premiere.
As a note: SPOILERS AHEAD. SOME SWEARING MIGHT BE INVOLVED. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED.
We’re excited to see where the rest of the season takes us. But we’re also incredibly sad to see the show go.
After an incredibly successful run, “Game of Thrones” gave us the opportunity to gather around the TV (or laptop or phone or tablet) to watch something as people, collectively — how often do we get to see that in a time where a single season of a show is available to us with a couple of clicks?
