I could use the next 4436 characters to express my distaste and utter disdain towards the final season of my favorite television show ever made. I could write about the character arcs and storylines that were robbed from me, the unnecessary love triangles and anti-climatic deaths that were bestowed upon me, and the landfill of water bottles and Starbucks cups that plagued the set (clean up your trash, Samwell Tarly).
But, alas, sometimes duty is the death of love. And it is unfair to slap a bad Yelp review on a delicious eight-course meal just because I am lactose intolerant and they served tiramisu for dessert.
Yes, thronies, I have made my peace with the ending and have decided to dissect the finale that D.B. & David made — not the one we expected them to — with optimism (and moderate sarcasm).
Bran: “I’m not the Lord of Winterfell…”
Tyrion: “you don’t want it?…”
Bran: “I don’t really ‘want’ anymore.”
*3 episodes later*
Dany, you are our queen. Now and always.
Bran, I don’t think many people will be bending the knee for ya, bud.
The Bran vote took the Internet on an emotional rollercoaster.
And Tyrion’s character arc served as the steady heartbeat for the finale.
Bran The Broken breaks through as the most talked about character.
Bravo and applause for GoT.
D.B. Weiss, David Benioff & the brilliant cast of Game of Thrones gave us 72 hours and 16 minutes of strong characters, epic battle scenes (and confusing incestuous relationships) over the past eight years. And sure, the past six weeks might have been BEYOND INFURIATING for some (me) as the character arcs and storylines we loved fatally crumbled into the ashes of King’s Landing without a proper burial…
But we must remember: What is dead may never die.
I, for one, will cherish the great memories this show gave us, the distractions it provided during an abysmal political climate, the beauty that is/was Khal Drogo and, Gods be good, I will never forget the beautiful, beautiful memes.
Without further ado, here are my favorite memes from the final episode of Game of Thrones:
Jon Snow : That's her decision, she's the queen

Thank you for Following The Throne with me this season. It has been a pleasure.
I’d like to say that this experience has not affected work productivity, but the alarming amount of unread emails I just discovered in my inbox says otherwise.
I am going to go now.
We leveraged Sprinklr Research to analyze real-time data from 25+ social channels and 350 Million web sources.
We aggregated all messages containing (“game of thrones” OR “#gameofthrones” OR “#got” OR #forthethrone OR “#gots8” OR “#gameofthronesseason8” OR “@gameofthrones”). We then applied an additional keyword search to analyze any mentions of the season eight characters and house names. These additional keywords are called “Sprinklr Themes” – allowing you to slice and dice your listening topic mentions, turning unstructured data into structured data.
We organized all of this “big data” by three different charts – the character with the most mentions plus #forthethrone, most mentioned character overall, and most loved/loathed character. This blog post also contains visuals that were powered by our Sprinklr Display product.
All data was gathered in the 24-hour window from 12 am Eastern, May 19, 2019 to 3 pm Eastern, May 20, 2019.
