It is amazing that Dany never even got to sit on the throne she wanted more than anything, I understand if lots of people will feel like the show did her dirty, but I thought that was tragically sad and beautiful at the same time. #GameofThrones

— lindsey romain (@lindseyromain) May 19, 2019

So, basically, R+L=J was pointless. Why did Bran say Jon needed to know the truth? Just to piss off Daenerys? Make it make sense. #GoTs8 #GameofThrones

Greyworm doesn’t play-play games.
Bran has all the cheat codes to the game.
Drogon: “F*ck y’all game…” #GameOfThrones
— Keith Murphy (@murphdogg29) May 20, 2019

This is a great point. I honestly believe I underestimated Drogon. I thought he was gonna go crazy and have to be put down. But he didn’t. He saw what the Iron Throne did to his mother, so he burned it down, took his mom’s corpse and flew home (I say he flew to Valyria.) https://t.co/KQnlrMdrcW

Tales were shared, and I LOVED it!
Fans had a lot to say, and much of it was fond farewell:

I remember watching Season 1 and 2 in 2013 in bed with subtitles on in case a loud sex scene came on. I spent a lot of time in bed then, and then through the show I discovered @WatchersOTWall and the amazing Twitter fandom. Something to focus on and somewhere to belong.
— Catháir (@Cathair96) May 19, 2019

I want to also point out that I am insanely proud of the Northern Irish talent that this show has produced and the tourism that it has brought here. It has helped shift Northern Ireland’s reputation from being sectarian violence and terrorism to the biggest TV show in the world.
— Catháir (@Cathair96) May 19, 2019

And more:

From there I watched YouTube videos, listened to podcasts and researched the history of Westeros. I began reading books about the symbolism and hidden meanings. I was blown away by the intricate storylines and intelligent foreshadowing…
— 🦄 Eureka🦄 (@shenaniganlife) May 19, 2019

A show along with thousands of others across the world. It made me feel like a part of something really special that I doubt I’ll ever find again. Since all that I found my way to @Axechucker recaps and even guest appeared on @motelsonmars reaction series…
— 🦄 Eureka🦄 (@shenaniganlife) May 19, 2019

So thank you for allowing me to be a part of it, thank you for sharing your heartfelt emotions and reactions and thank you for being along for the ride. Looking forward to the #GoT #seriesfinale and to sharing it once and for all with all of you

Amen.

There has to be a secret next episode where everyone blows up, right? How did Game of Thrones end with so many people alive?
— 5mash (@5mashed) May 20, 2019

The biggest twist of the episode was how Drogon apparently has understood symbolism and complex reasoning all this time. I guess no one ever asked what he thought of the ambition for the iron throne before.
— 5mash (@5mashed) May 20, 2019

As much as The Adventures of Pirate Arya would rule as a show, we all know that the deserving sequel is The Gay Prince of Dorne.

Here’s something from one of our long-timers:

supposed to keep her safe. To her show counterpart where she is r*ped by Ramsay. Sansa was who I saw myself in. If Sansa can go through all these horrible things, endure them and still be kind and thoughtful, wanting to help others, then so can I. Sansa helped me when I was
— sansa stark, queen in the north (@motelsonthemoon) May 20, 2019

I still feel like I am. Seeing Sansa survive them and find the peace, find her home and regain her identity, as a Stark, as a survivor. To see someone who was beaten and told she’d never amount to anything, to see her crowned and her people cheering for her, to see her happy
— sansa stark, queen in the north (@motelsonthemoon) May 20, 2019

she couldn’t do. Survive. Sansa Stark survived it all when others couldn’t & if Sansa can endure and survive even when everyone did their damnedest to ensure she didn’t, she did. She came out on top, and she freed her people in the process. Sansa Stark, the queen in the North.

Ten woulda been better than six. It is known.

#GameOfThrones would have been better served with greater care shown throughout the past couple of seasons. But the finale was as good as it was going to get at the super speed D&D ran toward it. So, I’m happy…ish.

The show was never meant to fulfill prophecy or expand on it. It’s too detailed, too much for #GameOfThrones. That can only be told to us from GRRM. Its WHY the books are better. So you can read it, absorb it, soak it all in.
— You have your Needle? (@TheLadyShelly) May 20, 2019

Sansa’s hair completely down (vs complicated looks of her youth & severe pinbacks of Winterfell stewardship) took my breath away.
Elizabeth wore hers down at her coronation to signal sexual purity, in open hostility to those who said her sexual abuse ruined her. #GameOfThrones

Drogon received best character development in this finale—exercising judgement when experiencing blinding anger and grief, destroying the symbol of power and the very source of evil, and choosing to mourn in solitude, now brotherless and motherless. #GameofThrones pic.twitter.com/eD16FCYdgu

November 24, 2010 – this is the date when for the very first time I heard about #GameOfThrones – I read an article and saw these 2 pics of Emilia Clarke & thought, wow, she is gorgeous, I must watch this. And months later I did, & felt in love with both Emilia/Daenerys & Series. pic.twitter.com/fsEdtHU8zJ

1/ Most hopeful scene from last night’s #GameOfThonesFinale was the table discussion near the end. Sanitation, construction— boring civic concerns that make life 1000% more liveable. That’s how it’s SUPPOSED to be. THAT’S why you step up to govern.

There was much speculation about the future of these characters…

Cersei Lannister, first and last queen of Westeros because let’s face it, those fuckers are never gonna elect a woman. :/
— Cersei Lannister (@Queen_Cersei) May 20, 2019

Oof.

So why is it considered a positive that Bran cannot produce an heir? History (real and Westerosi) shows that the most tumultuous time for a realm is the first succession. If there is a question of who the heir is, that’s likely to lead to factions and eventual war. #GameOfThrones

Someone laughed at me a few weeks ago for suggesting Jon would end up back with the Nights Watch. Thought the whole idea of the Nights Watch still existing to be completely absurd.

Oh and in my reality, the Hound landed in Blackwater Bay, drifted to shore, found that stupid dinghy Davos left for the Lannisters and ended up being the generally acknowledged but not legally recognized father of Sansa Stark’s eventually legitimized bastards. #gameofthrones

Game of Thrones could drag Jaime Lannister’s corpse out of that rubble, wash it off, do a five minute montage of his face, conduct a DNA test, cremate the body & never mention Tarth again, and I will STILL believe he waits alone on a rocky cliff island to reunite with Brienne.

In retrospect and overthinking it, Jon’s distant relationship to Ghost represents the temptation of the southern politics, with his dragon-riding tempting him Targaryen identity.
But when Jon embraced Ghost at the end, it nicely symbolized Jon embracing the North.

So that’s that. My last Twitter post is finished. I want to thank everyone at Watchers for their support, and want to thank all the Game of Thrones fans for their enthusiasm (on Twitter and in the comments section to these posts—I read ’em all!) and their love. Means the world to me.
Nine years ago when I begat Twitter posts over at our first site, Winter-Is-Coming, I never thought they would be so partnered to the viewing enjoyment of so many.
They were a lot of work, but ultimately rewarding; just combing through hashtags and feeds was like digging up buried treasure.
Oh, and here’s a final reward:
