Twitter’s Best Reactions to GAME OF THRONES’ “A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms”

Warning: This post contains MAJOR SPOILERS for the second episode from Game of Thrones‘ final season. It also has a lot of funny jokes and people excited about a CGI-ed wolf.

Game of Thrones‘ second episode of season eight, “A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms,” didn’t feature anyone dying or being turned into a zombie, or even any dragons. And we loved it. We weren’t the only ones either. These are Twitter’s best reactions to highlights like Brienne’s knighting, Arya and Gendry’s intimate moment, the long-awaited but brief return of Ghost, Jon dropping a truth bomb on Daenerys, and more.

Did you tear up when Jaime made Brienne the first female knight in the history of the Seven Kingdoms? If not you might be the only one.

While Jaime and Brienne made fans cry, Arya and Gendry elicited very different reactions.

The part of the episode that garnered the best reactions was the unheralded return of Ghost, Jon’s direwolf who has been missing for roughly 17 seasons.

You would think being a Queen of people who hate you while an army of ice demons marches towards you would be as bad as it gets, but Jon Snow and the worst-timed conversation in history proved things can always be worse for Daenerys.

It’s too bad Daenerys didn’t get to hear Podrick sing. It definitely would have cheered her up.

Of course, a powerful episode focused on characters’ relationships comes with a catch – a catch the size of an army of the dead. And we know what that means for next week.

We have a feeling the reactions to next week’s Battle of Winterfell won’t be nearly as funny.
