'Game Of Thrones' Fans Are Sounding Off About The Series Finale's Twists And Turns—And It's Truly The End Of An Era

Warning: There are major spoilers ahead for those who haven't seen the "Game of Thrones" finale.

The Game of Thrones series finale came and went, and audiences are still picking up the pieces (and their jaws) off the floor to assess what they witnessed.

After we watched Daenerys (Emilia Clarke) begin her descent into madness by leading the massacre at King's Landing at the end of the penultimate episode, Jon Snow, the true Targaryen heir did what he had to do, much to our chagrin.

"You are my queen, now and forever," would be the last words Daenerys would hear before Snow plunged his sword into her gut. Ouch.

Devoted GoT fans were even more gutted than Daenerys after realizing the epic adventure that had captivated them since its premiere on April 17, 2011, was over.

Some thought the Mad Queen's death was justified.

But that didn't mean it was easy to watch, nor was it expected.

"Bran the Broken" became the King of the Six Kingdoms (after Sansa insisted on ruling the North independently.) So how did everyone feel about that?

For starters, people didn't stand for it.

Some found it predictable.

Despite the outcome, emotions ran high knowing this was the closing of an epic chapter.

Discussion immediately followed as the credits began to scroll.

Here are some of the best reactions to the final episode.

There was plenty to say.

This world cannot be over. We must see the rising of a new dawn.

HBO adamantly stated there will never be a season 9, but a sequel or prequel series taking place in Westeros is not out of the realm of possibility.

A spinoff, tentatively titled The Long Night, is in development and will begin filming this summer. The series will star Naomi Watts and Josh Whitehouse, and will co-star Naomi Ackie, Denise Gough, Miranda Richardson, Jamie Campbell Bower, Sheila Atim, Ivanno Jeremiah, Georgie Henley, Alex Sharp and Toby Regbo.

Gender roles have evolved over time, which includes the roles of spouses in a "traditional marriage."

While the concept of traditional marriage is actually quite modern and differed in cultures around the world, most people envision the homes of sitcoms like Father Knows Best and Leave It to Beaver from the 1950s and early 1960s when they think of a traditional marriage.

If your life were a book, what would it be called? Everyone's story is special and unique (yeah it's cheesey but it's true), though we all have some experiences in common - like aging, or periods of depression, or newfound success.

A tanning addict who admits to soaking up sun without using protection for decades talked to Press Association about how a pink pimple on the end of her nose turned out to be sunbathing-induced skin cancer.

Her nose had to be covered using a radical technique known as a reconstructive skin flap, involving three operations in May and June, after Laure Seguy was diagnosed with skin cancer. She blames her tanning addiction and has now drastically overhauled her relationship with the sun.
