Here Are All the Best Memes From ‘Game of Thrones’ Series Finale
Which is your favorite?
In its final season, Thrones made everyone mad, so the memes have been great—particularly for the last episode, which aired Sunday.
To recap: In the series finale Daenerys (Emilia Clarke) won the Iron Throne only to go full Hitler (you never go full Hitler) and freak out on Tyrion Lannister (Peter Dinklage). Tyrion was imprisoned and that’s where Jon Snow (Kit Harington) visited him.
The last living Lannister managed to convince Jon that Dany had lost it. Jon knifed her—lovingly—in front of the Iron Throne, which her last dragon, Drogon, proceeded to torch into slag before grabbing his dead mistress and flying away.
The remaining heads of the houses all assembled to designate a new King, and after a silly suggestion they create a democracy then an impassioned speech from Tyrion, they chose Bran the Broken (Isaac Hempstead Wright). To the displeasure of many fans, of course (see below).
Jon Snow was consigned to the Nights Watch and a chaste life in the cold wastes, Arya Stark took off for lands unknown, and Sansa became Queen in the North, choosing to remain independent of her brother’s rule.
All this plus previous events like Jaime Lannister (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) sleeping with Gwendoline Christie’s Ser Brienne of Tarth before abandoning her for his sister/lover Cersei (Lena Headey) led to plenty of fodder for cranky fans.
Check out some of the funniest, dumbest memes to come out of the whole mess.
Maybe Dany would’ve been better off if she’d asked for the manager, as the first tweet below says. Except she became the manager… and that didn’t work out so well.

Sansa won the popular vote but Bran had the electoral college.
