Winter is here, and so are the memes. After the longest wait in series history, Game of Thrones is back for one last season, and the Season 8 premiere ‘Winds of Winter’ didn’t just shatter viewership, it inspired a massive outpouring of social media lulz. The premiere was a relatively calm episode for what’s sure to be an absolutely bananas and, no doubt, incredibly painful farewell season (just keep your filthy mitts off of Davos, you sons of bitches.) But that doesn’t mean it wasn’t jam-packed with WTF moments for the internet to devour and turn into comedy gold.
Game of Thrones is sure to bring of plenty of tears in the coming episodes, so for now, let’s lean into the laughs. From Bran becoming a total creeper, to Dany’s horrifying meeting with Sam, Jon’s complete inability to win any damn scenario, and Cersei’s surprise love of elephants, there was a lot to work with.
But let’s be real, Bran won the Game of Memes this week; an absolute unit of awkwardness and discomfort that managed to provoke utter befuddlement and WTF faces from pretty much every Winterfell citizen — all within the span of a single episode. We stan an all-seeing, all-knowing, all-skeeving king.
Without further ado, here are the best Game of Thrones memes of the week. For more of our latest Game of Thrones coverage, be sure to check out the links below.
