Warning: Season 8, Episode 4 Game of Thrones spoilers ahead!
Just when we thought the Starks and other survivors of The Battle of Winterfell could maybe catch their breath, the Mother of Dragons had everyone on the move again in Season 8, Episode 4 of Game of Thrones. We now have a lot of feelings to process.
And, as usual, we’re turning to the internet to help us unpack it all.
Me on the phone with the Game of Thrones writers after watching Arya reject Gendry, Jon getting rid of Ghost, Jaime leaving Brienne for Cersei, Rhaegal and Missandei getting killed and Dany starting to go mad all in the same episode #GameofThrones pic.twitter.com/TaCGE3ymzd

First, Jon and Dany finally had the opportunity to “talk” about, you know, how they’re related slash how Jon has a better claim to the Iron Throne. It was tense, it was awkward, and Dany pretty much said: If you tell Sansa and Arya, this relaysh is dead. Jon, of course, told them anyway…and Sansa told, like, everyone.

Arya, on the other hand, stole Gendry’s heart, but has no plans on keeping it. She is not a lady, after all.

Before leaving for King’s Landing, Jon had the audacity to leave Ghost behind…? Not sure why such cruelty had to occur; however, here we are.

And yes—Brienne and Jamie are Facebook official. And we’re kind of like, why?
I cannot believe they allowed my girl Brienne to cry for Jamie and then Jamie to stoically remove her hands from his face and say brisk words before trotting away. MY BITCH BRIENNE!??! #GameofThrones

My girl Brienne outside in a housecoat. I hate dick. That's what dick does. It has you outside in the cold ass North in a housecoat asking a one handed dude where he's going.

And then…that Missandei moment.

tyrion keeps trying to play to cersei's humanity like she didn't blow up the mega church last year.

If your spouse said Euron Greyjoy was their favorite character, you’d have to immediately divorce right

The march to King’s Landing is on and we’re literally stress-sweating thinking about the upcoming battle. We won’t make any predictions yet, but if Ghost makes a miraculous return and ends up being the one to destroy Cersei and avenge Lady’s death (callback to Season 1), we wouldn’t be mad.
