"What the f*** do I do now" - fans react to Game of Thrones season 7 finale with jokes, memes, and gifs

TODO alt text

Game of Thrones season 7 has come to an end, my friends. Revelations were shared, plotlines were resolved, a great war was set up, and the somewhat breakneck pacing has led us all to this moment. So what did everyone think? And if you haven't been watching, what are some pithy reactions that you can steal to blend in when it's the hot topic at the office watercooler? 

We've trawled Twitter to find out, and collected the responses here. Read on to see the fan reactions. Oh, and it should go without saying, but SPOILER WARNING. We are talking about the season finale, after all.

One of the first big, dramatic moments in an episode chock-full of them was Daenerys' arrival at the meeting with Cersei via (what else?) dragon. Everyone was impressed save for Cersei, who ignored the whole flying lizard thing and focused on her rival's timekeeping instead. Of course, then the gang showed her what was inside their giftbox, and everyone quickly changed their tune.

Leading up to that fateful meeting, we saw several characters reunite and play catch-up, including Brienne of Tarth and Sandor "The Hound" Clegane. Both of them were pretty proud of how their protege, Arya Stark, has turned out.

Speaking of Arya, she and her sister Sansa finally - finally! - stopped leading the audience on and teamed up to end Petyr Baelish, AKA Littlefinger. While it seemed at first that Sansa was letting Littlefinger manipulate her into executing her own family, it turned out that the sentencing was directed at him, not her. Fans loved it.

Another big payoff was finally getting explicit confirmation of Jon's parentage. Yup, his father was a Targaryen, his mother a Stark. The all-seeing, all-knowing Bran laid it all out for Sam, who also revealed that Jon was born in wedlock, making him a legitimate heir and not a bastard at all. The timing on this revelation could've been better though, as Bran basically narrated while audiences watched Dany bone her nephew (not that she would know). Fans also pointed out that given his seeming omniscience, Bran could've told those around him of some slightly more pressing matters.

Of course, there's no way to talk about the season 7 finale without addressing the undead ice dragon in the room. Er, at The Wall. Well, that's gone now too... Y'know what, this was a bad metaphor. Point is, the Night King used his reanimated Viserion (who now spits blue flame) to destroy The Wall and begin his march south. It was undeniably cool to see and the zombie horde will be a major focus for season 8. That said, some couldn't help but notice a passing similarity to the World of Warcraft expansion, Wrath of the Lich King.

Now for us to patiently wait... ugh, two years?! I know an army of the dead probably isn't going to be the fastest thing in Westeros, but come on!
