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

HBO, @bweezerz/Twitter

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.

Don't tell mom!

Family secrets are a norm. Who doesn't have them? What's fun is figuring out who is keeping what from who? Normally it's dad trying and failing to keep things form mom. Let's face it, nine times out of ten, dad is the court jester trying pushing the line when mom is not looking. So dad is usually begging the little ones to keep a kabash on the events that transpire in mom's absence.
