Another day, another Game of Thrones post. Each episode is now so eagerly anticipated the world over that as soon as it airs people get to work analyzing it, discussing it and, inevitably, making memes about it.
With the story 8 years in the making and rapidly (finally) nearing its conclusion, the excitement is palpable. This collection of memes are gonna spoil the latest episode for those who haven't seen it yet, so approach with caution if that's the case! For those that did tune in, you'll be in fits of laughter at the links and references that people manage to conjure in the magical medium of memes. And of course, if you're not a fan of the show, nothing will make any sense whatsoever.
So scroll down below to check out Bored Panda's favorite reactions to episode 2, season 8 for yourself!
It's fair to say that this episode attracted some mixed reactions, with plenty of character interaction building up the tension for the big finale. People really took to the several humorous moments throughout, however Arya suddenly initiating intimacy with Gendry left some confused and less than impressed.
To get a little more insight Bored Panda spoke to Christian, who runs the popular Facebook page Game of Thrones Fans, for his take on the episode. "For me, this season had a slow start working its way through, preparing us for something big to happen," he told us. "If i remember correctly, the third episode will have even better fighting scenes than the Battle of the Bastards episode had."
Christian seems to already be dreading the end of the series, looking ahead to developments after the final episode. "I am always thinking that the end is only 4 episodes away now, what will happen then?," he said. "I just hope as a fan that they will give us a lot of prequels and sequels to the amazing story that Westeros had to offer and I am sure that there are many people out there who wish for the same thing."
"In some way we wish for the show to always keep on living and never end."
"I think most of the talk from this episode are related to Aryas scene," Christian continued. "But for me, the best surprise from last night's episode was to finally see Ghost after some time. "I hope that isn't the end for him, maybe he will play some part in battle to come."
"One more thing about the episode that I really liked is that most of the characters were in groups sitting around the fire and sharing stories. There was a lot of interaction. And i don't think anyone died in this one, which is progress for sure!"
