Yeah, we know it leaked, but some of us like our Sunday night rituals.
Things are always real on this show, but things just got REALLY REAL! A lot happened in what felt like the slowest episode this season. As has become the norm, some characters got burnt to a crisp by Drogon, someone got knocked up, a seemingly missing character is back in a serious way, and we learned some very interesting information on Jon's parentage. Here are our favorite memes and reactions - hopefully they'll help tide you over until Jon Snow's wight-fighting dream goes after the army of the dead!
Has your heartbeat slowed since last night's epic episode, "The Spoils of War?" We're still shook. The show's creators managed to pack an incredible amount of action into the shortest run time in Game of Thrones history. Twitter agrees; everyone seems to think it was, quite literally, LIT.
This season of Game of Thrones is not messing around. That epic meeting we were waiting for finally happened, as did a tearful reunion. Not one but two relatively crucial characters were eliminated from this freaky Westerosi game show of death - and the action doesn't seem like it's going to be stopping any time soon. Here's a selection of our favorite reactions to the exhilarating episode.
A photograph of Nic Cage with the first lady of Kazakhstan has gone viral, inspiring many clever Photoshop edits. The star was in the former Soviet republic for the 13th Eurasia International Film Festival, taking place in Almaty, Kazakhstan's largest city.
The photo, which features Cage in traditional Kazakh garb, adds a new layer of fun to a figure who is already basically a walking meme. Here are some of our favorite Photoshop memes, which feature everyone from Kazakh star Borat to the viral fur-coat clad Ikea monkey.
Things haven't settled down in Westeros since the season premiere. Last night's episode, Stormborn, included everything we watch Game of Thrones for: bloody battle scenes, tearful reunions, a steamy sex scene, and some big reveals. We're really going to see Dany and Jon meet, and Greyworm and Missandei finally did it. Naturally, Twitter users were not quiet during or after the episode.
Looking for a solid way to waste some time? The fine folks at Dorkly have come to save the day. Combining our favorite (living) Game of Thrones characters with the zodiac is a clever idea - though we have to admit, lumping Jaime and Cersei together as Geminis seems a little easy and unfair.
