First off, let’s start off with the obvious: SPOILERS AHEAD. If you did not watch this past Sunday’s episode “Battle of the Bastards” and you do not want to be spoiled, stop reading now. 🙂
Alright, we warned you!
Last night, not one, but two beloved characters died: Rickon Stark and the giant, Wun-Wun. Wun-Wun was an integral part of Jon Snow’s campaign against the evil Bolton army. Not only did he fight bravely while being attacked by multiple men, but he rammed open the front gate of Winterfell despite being riddled with arrows.
And what did he get for his troubles? Ramsay Bolton killed him with an arrow — shot through the eye.
Of course, fans were bummed out. As such, they turned to social media to vent their frustrations:
Some have turned to drink
Others call it as they see it
Comparisons are made to other GoT Greats
Some declare Wun-Wun a superhero
…Or wish he’d followed in another superhero’s footsteps
Others hide their grief in humor
…or made terrible puns
Others, meanwhile, distracted themselves from Wun-Wun’s death by focusing on other parts of the story…
Like Sansa’s badass take-down of Ramsay Bolton was celebrated by all:
Twitter last night was united with joy for Sansa, and grief for Wun-Wun and Rickon. Though many on Twitter had to ask:
Regardless, we can’t wait to watch next week’s season finale! We can’t see how it can get any more intense than “Battle of the Bastards,” and we’re waiting with bated breath!
