So far, this season of Game of Thrones hasn’t had too many battles. Sure, there was the sister-abandoning boat disaster in episode two, but last night brought the full-on GoT violence that we all know and love.
In the last 15 minutes of the show, a long-awaited skirmish broke out between Daenerys’s and Cersei’s forces. There was fire, there was Drogon, and there was a lot of carnage.
Obviously, with such an epic battle, Twitter had a lot to say. Fans pointed out the irony in being worried about a wannabe-child murderer’s life or being cool with hundreds of soldiers dying, but freaking out about anything happening to the non-human characters. They shared their real-time reactions to the intense and bloody scenes, and showed that Dragon memes are surprisingly versatile.
