Warning! Major spoilers ahead.
The anticipation leading up to Game of Thrones season eight, episode three was intense. The week before the episode aired, fans were building theories for how they thought the battle would go down: Would the corpses in the crypt rise when the Night King arrived? Hint: True. Who would deliver the final blow? Hint: not who you were thinking. And, who would be left standing? Hint: more than expected.
The entire series has been building up to this fight between the living and the dead. Even though the living won this battle, they lost some friends (and enemies) along the way.
As per usual, the internet reacted accordingly. Actors and fans of the show flocked to social media to say their goodbyes when their favorite characters joined the Night King's army.
