Game of Thrones season 7, episode 6 (opens in new tab) had a lot going on. But there was one grizzly moment in particular that had everyone running for the e-hills. If you’ve seen it then you’ll know what I’m talking about. If not, then continue on at your own risk – there’s an flurry of spoilers to come…
Three words: Zombie. Polar. Bear. If that’s not enough, then the guys and girls of Twitter have elaborated on the shock wintry attack in their own inimitable way. Bear with me…
Who saw that coming...?

That zombie polar bear fight was like watching The Revenant on LSD. #GameOfThronesAugust 21, 2017

Haven't we seen that bear before?
Good to see the polar bear from Lost still getting jobs #GameOfThronesAugust 21, 2017
Zombie polar bear! It's like The Walking Dead and Lost had a baby and named it #GameofThronesAugust 21, 2017
Not everyone was a fan, though. A paw CGI effort, perhaps?
Apparently they didn't allocate much of the budget for that CGI Bear sceneAugust 21, 2017
That zombie bear is the worst CGI this show had ever had by far #GameOfThronesAugust 21, 2017
I think someone needed to spend a couple more bucks on this polar bear CGI... #GameOfThronesAugust 21, 2017
