Warning: This article is dark and full of Game of Thrones Season 8 spoilers.
For real Game of Thrones fans, there are two shows every Sunday night: the episode itself, and the post-show commentary on Twitter. GoT fans have been waiting with bated breath for the Battle of Winterfell, and the events of last night did not disappoint. So, we rounded up the best memes to come out of last night’s episode — otherwise known as a detailed look inside the heads of everyone watching last night.
The Battle at Winterfell, in addition to being a highly climactic moment for the characters involved, was no small feat for the cast and crew. To kick things off, the Twitter account @thronesfacts posted about what it took to shoot these battle scenes — and author Roxane Gay, after watching said scenes, had one small addition.

It’s true — while the production value was impressive, it was a little dimly lit for a battle determining the fate of nearly every major GoT character. Here are some more reactions to the scene’s lighting, the battle’s casualties, that epic Arya moment, and predictions on what will come next for the Starks. Enjoy!
