Warning! Some spoilers ahead.

If you're still processing all of the epic, literal breathtaking moments from the most recent episode of Game of Thrones, you are not alone. 

A lot went down during the long-awaited Battle of Winterfell, so just in case you need a humorous break from all of the critical analysis, try this on for size: A wax museum in Ireland is getting totally roasted for its, well, not-so-great Daenerys figure. 

The museum unveiled the wax figure last week, and while it was probably well-intentioned, GoT fans are less than enthused about this particular interpretation of the beloved character.

Welp, the highly anticipated Battle of Winterfell episode of Game of Thrones has aired.

For weeks, fans have been obsessing over how this major battle would end up taking shape. What would happen to the corpses in the crypt when the Night King arrived? Who would deliver that fatal last blow? Which of the living would be left standing? There were so many questions and not nearly enough answers.

It definitely did not disappoint.

After all, anticipation for this episode has been building throughout the series' eight-season run.  Even though the living won this battle, some fan favorites didn't make it out alive. But really, if you weren't expecting people to die, you've clearly been watching the wrong show all these years.

Everyone's favorite queen, Emilia Clarke, shared this sweet sentiment on her Insta after the episode aired.

Ser Jorah Mormont (Iain Glen) died protecting the woman he pined after for an eternity, Daenerys Targaryen. Clarke posted a photo of the twosome smiling together, with Glen still in costume. It was definitely an emotional moment watching Ser Jorah die in Dany's arms, even if his love for her was never exactly reciprocated. 

In case you feel like reliving that harrowing moment, here you go:

So. Many. Emotions!

One fan summed up the intensity of that whole scene on Twitter: "Ser Jorah’s watch over Daenerys has ended. His loyalty and love for her made his loss very difficult. Never have I lost it over a character on Thrones as much as him."

But maybe we should switch gears to something a little less... heavy.

Considering the popularity of Daenerys as a character, it makes complete sense that people and institutions alike would want to commemorate her brilliance. She's a fan favorite for sure, so any tribute to or about her needs to be very carefully crafted. 

So, a couple days ago, the National Wax Museum Plus in Ireland did something that was rather interesting.

For weeks, the museum in Dublin teased something major related to Game of Thrones on its social media accounts. They seemed to be working on new wax figures of some of the show's most iconic characters, including none other than Miss Daenerys herself. It was a whole thing.

What in the world could it be?!

On April 24, the museum hinted that the big reveal was coming soon. Another Instagram post suggested that the new figure could be Jon Snow, Cersei Lannister, or the (long dead) Joffrey Baratheon. Without a doubt, the museum was trying to build up a lot of buzz for its latest wax figure.

And then the world got... this.

Yeahhh, that definitely does not look anything like Daenerys. We're not sure it could pass as someone who's even a distant relative. The face, the hair, the demeanor... it's just all so not right. The figure may be sitting on an iron throne, but it is most certainly not the Daenerys we all know and love. Who approved of this?!

Fans were equally appalled.

"At least you tried," one fan told the museum over on Twitter, adding in the viral Daenerys sarcastic smirking meme for good measure. 

Another person wasn't quite as kind, saying: "This epic fail made it onto our news here in New Zealand. The wig even looks cheap af. How did all the people involved in making this not stop it from being shown to the world?" 

There's just so much going on here that it's hard to know where to start.

The museum has kept its posts about the lackluster Daenerys figure on its social media accounts, so it must be sticking by the creation, even if fans aren't really having it. But maybe they should take the constructive criticism to heart and reconsider the making of any future GOT wax figures. Just a thought.
