Warning: this article contains major spoilers for episode four of Game of Thrones season 7.
So! We've just about got our breaths back from witnessing a truly epic episode of Game of Thrones. It was already known that tonight's showing was going to be the shortest of the season, coming it at around 50 minutes, and that clearly didn't prepare us for what a barnstormer we were in for (because we were good and didn't spoil it by exposing ourselves to those leaks).
Well, it seems everyone watching was floored by what they saw too, as seven seasons of dragon tension was released on a battle field of quivering Lannister troops.
Of course, more than that outrageous ending went down, and Digital Spy kept a track on the action online as people reacted to what they saw. Here's what everyone was saying...
Straight off the bat, Bran "Three-Eyed Raven" Stark was continuing to be his weird self, and people were not here for it:
Oh snap, Bran just outcreeped Littlefinger. #GameofThrones

There was FINALLY a Stark reunion between Bran, Sansa and Arya – and people couldn't deal with it:
Been waiting on this stark reunion for 6 seasons omggggggg #GameOfThrones

It’s crazy how the Stark children have changed. They don’t even know each other anymore. #GameofThrones

Arya took on Brienne in a sparring match and it was GoT gold:

Arya and Brienne's sword play was amazing, watching Arya dance around with a blade never gets tiring #GameOfThrones

But then – it finally happened...
In scenes that could hardly be believed, Daenerys came soaring into battle on Drogon, flanked by an army of Dothraki:

You've gotta give it to Daenerys. She talks a big game and backs it up. #GamesOfThrones

We can all surely agree it was an epic episode. The best ever, perhaps? Some people certainly thought so:
I know people get hyped up when there is a new episode but you got to admit this was the best Game of Throne episode ever #GameofThrones

#GameOfThrones tonight was undoubtedly the most mind-blowing television episode I've ever seen. Wow.

But with huge questions to be answered on what state Jaime Lannister is in – and with the episode being 10 minutes shorter – the cliffhanger was a cause of many viewers' frustration:

HOW ARE THEY JUST GONNA END THE EPISODE LIKE THAT!?! 😤#GameofThrones
- marissa (@marissamhh) August 7, 2017
