The 'Game of Thrones' episode 5 memes were better than the actual episode
Warning: This post will contain spoilers from Sunday night's Game of Thrones...
Last night's episode of Game of Thrones was not just the penultimate episode of the season, but it was the penultimate episode of the entire show. With so little time to pay off the journey we've all been on since 2011, they've been going all out with extra-long, extra-expensive episodes that more than show off their budget.
Check out the preview for next week's final episode:
Now that we're getting closer to the end, not everyone is happy. In fact, there are a significant portion of the fanbase who are feeling a little conflicted over how the show has turned out so far. Beyond those complicated feelings, however, there's something far more simple that we can all get behind: the memes.
Usually, quick-witted Twitter users provide some hilarious jokes and reactions to the last episode to be aired, and this week is no different. Check some of them out below (spoilers, obviously):
Varys placed his bets well
And set out to spread the good word
Fans hated to see him go
Tyrion's ideas were a little more left-field
Everyone was getting scared of Daenerys
Jaime Lannister: master of disguise
A tiny huge mistake
Cersei sneaking by
Dany doesn't hold back
It went way too far for some
Missandei looking down on this mess
Cleganebowl wasn't easy
It seemed like a good idea at the time
Not an ideal victory
Your Uber is here
Old town road
Best to temper your expectations
Sansa will have some words for Jon
But he knows (too late)
Drogon did his best
Daenerys on the other hand...
Where are Cersei's elephants!!
Bran got his HBO subscription
We're never all going to agree on what makes a great Game of Thrones episode, and the debate over the next week's episode is sure to go on for a long time. Saying that - the memes will always be great, and Twitter reactions will always be a fun place to turn to the morning after.
