Twitter can't handle Lyanna Mormount's incredible 'Battle of Winterfell' moment
Warning: contains spoilers.
What can I say other than... WOW.
75 minutes of Game of Thrones at its absolute best. Epic deaths, heroic redemption and plot twists like you've never seen in Westeros before - it's safe to say that episode three of the season eight was one of the finest we've ever witnessed. And that's saying something, folks.
This episode was always going to be a heartbreaker - with fans taunted and teased with major character deaths in the slightly slower-paced episode two - but I don't think anybody was ready for what came next as the White Walkers descended upon pretty much every character we've ever loved.
While it took everything for me not to cry at the tragic demises of Jorah (damn I love that guy), Theon and Beric Dondarrion, it was another death that got fans teary-eyed - that of Lyanna Mormont (played by Bella Ramsey). A fan-favourite since she burst onto our screens in season five, the powerful little lady of Bear Island took epic death scenes to new heights as the Night King and his undead army assaulted the Stark family home of Winterfell.
Here is the heartbreaking moment that everyone is talking about:
In the savage battle of the living against the dead, she was snatched up by a giant wight, who crushed her to death in the most brutal of fashions. But, true to the heroic nature which fans have fallen in love with, she struck one final blow that will be remembered forever in the GoT universe, stabbing it in the eye, killing it stone dead. Huzzah.
The Twitter reactions, to say the least, were heart-wrenching...
Another twist in the tale was that Lyanna Mormount was actually brought back from the dead by the Night King as he revived the fallen to surround Jon Snow - thankfully though Arya's fateful intervention meant that fans weren't treated to undead Lyanna for long.
I don't know about you guys - but I can't wait to see what happens next.
Speaking of which, here is the AMAZING preview of episode four!
What the f*** has evil Cersei been doing while our heroes battle the dead in the north?
Will Dany ever get over the loss of her beloved protector Jorah?
All I know is, Game of Thrones might be the best TV show I've ever seen. Peace out.
