But…. hook or by crook, I got the goods. This is it: the last ReTweet post of 2011. By next year, when season two begins airing, most of us will know who’s playing who—Hell, most of us will have finished A Dance with Dragons, so we’ll be plump full of knowledge and raring to go.
As usual these little gems of brilliance were taken from tweets hashtagged #GameOfThrones or #FireAndBlood (via my @Axechucker account, with help from @The_Rabbit01) for Game of Thrones‘ episode 10, the season one finale.
There are no spoilers here for anyone who watched the episode. If you haven’t—well, face Paco at your own risk.
The #FreeNed movement has now morphed into #AvengeNed, sort of how Operation: Desert Shield became Operation: Desert Storm, or how Operation: Just Cause was quickly transformed into Operation: Just Because. (That’s a Manuel Noriega joke, y’all. Why am I the only one laughing?) (Probably because I was the only one there.)
@TheRobbStark: @GameOfThrones We’re having quite a party…if that’s what you can call it…lots of war planning for #FireandBlood #AvengeNed
@theSamwellTarly: It is time as well to #AvengeNed. We do this by having nicer hair then everyone else. THIS IS THE WAY OF THE OLD GODS OF HAIRSTYLING.
@LadyAryaStark: If Joffrey reamins King.. the first two orders for Westeros are: Go Blonde and bed your sibling! #AvengeNed #FireandBlood
@Queen_Cersei: The Lannisters don’t hate the Starks. You are sheep to us, to be sheared and slaughtered and eaten as desired. #AvengeNed
@LordEddardStark: Butler for Stannis would really help with that #AvengeNed deal.
Aren’t you dead? You cannot avenge yourself! Silence!
And it wasn’t just fantasy characters with improbable Twitter accounts getting in on the spirit of things:
@Sporrej: For the next day I pledge allegiance to Targaryen #FireAndBlood. I hope Dany can help and #AvengeNed. #GameofThrones
@gusandleo: We must #AvengeNed or the Lannisters will pull out our toenails and wear them as jewelry. #CreepyFamilyIsCreepy
@Tlieso: If we don’t #AvengeNed the Lannisters will enforce an inter-family marriage law. How much do you love your sibling? #eew #IncestIsBest?
@PhleboTekGrrl: #AvengeNed or the Lannisters will *stop* paying their debts & start running up their credit card bills. #lame #allIgotrightnow
If it’s okay with you, I’m going to blame the Lannisters for my 401K as well.
So the usual preparations were made. Popcorn, cola…
@Queen_Cersei: #FireandBlood in 18 minutes. Got my spare panties ready.
@Dude_heydave: MOTHER FUCKING #GAMEOFTHRONES SOOOOOOO PUMPED
@israfel070: OH MY FUCKING GOD FINALE
@os1123: Will miss Sean Bean for the rest of the series. A eloquent actor who commands a powerful on-screen presence.
@TrevorDSmith: Winter is coming…to the end of the season #DownWithJoffery
@_jilly: Daughter has decided Petyr Baelish’s new nickname should be “Middlefinger” due to his sketchy factor
@GreenLanternJet: Time for the finale of the best show of 2011 — #GameofThrones. Should be an awesome hour of TV.
@lumamedeiros: I can’t believe that tonight’s episode of @GameOfThrones is the last one of the season. :(
@ReallyAlly: @Paco_ICEandFIRE I WON’T BE ABLE TO SLEEP OR EAT UNTIL IT COMES BACK
@PabloRomero_ Pablo: waaaaaaaaaaaaa final de temporada de @GameOfThrones OMG!!!! D:
… Lucy? Wait, no. Ricky?
@xoamelia: #gameofthrones had better bring the sex tonight. It’s the finale and I will accept nothing less than some serious incestuous fucking.
Well you, my friend, are in luck! Wait, does post-coital incest count?
@TheTVgal: Note to my family: If you call during the finale of #TheKilling or #GameofThrones, horrible things will follow. You’ve been warned!
@Vee115: #baelor episode broke my heart but I’m back for more! #shouldareadthebooks
@junehymn: 10 minutes until the season finale of #GameofThrones, which means it is That Episode. Well. That Other Episode.
@Nerderific: Season finale! Here’s hoping that at the VERY least Joffrey gets bitch slapped again by Tyrion. http://goo.gl/FVi4i
@katiebabs: I hope Rob cuts off Jamie’s balls.
@Paco_ICEandFIRE: OMG ITS STARTING!! N SO THE END OF HAPPINESS TILL APRIL 2012 BEGINS!
@msdeelightful49: Ashley!!! What’s have u watched now that ur done with that other show? #GameofThrones is spectacular You need to watch
@risaree: I have such a raging boner for #gameofthrones.
@elliott_murphy: @ChroniclesChris Have you seen it? Have you seen it? Have you seen it? Have you seen it? Have you seen it? #GameofThrones
@TAMQuiroz: Minutes away!! #Fireandblood blow my mind!!!!!
I do try.
A few people left—
@ttubach: @GameOfThrones I was honestly having a physical response last week. Felt awful. Heart pounding, jaw dropping. I’m back for the finale though.
@jaday76: I was angry! But I can’t stop watching it! RT @GameOfThrones: Anyone swear off the show after the execution last week?
Many did. Many returned. It’s crack.
@aurel_ska: IT’S ON!!!!!!! EVERYONE READY!?!?!
@MrsNicolaRain: I am one hour away from utter dejection #gameofthrones
@deemacca83: #gameofthrones season finale! If they have killed off sean bean I will be pissed off!!
@recycleanimals: #gameofthrones is the number one trending tv show on @getglue right now :D
@heath_downey: All snug on the couch with a brew, ready for the #GameOfThrones finale
@Private_pike: I’ve just realised that I don’t know any of the character names :-/
Shaggydog is really the only one you needed to remember up ’til today. I think you’re good!
@WiCnet: “And now it begins.” “No, now it ends.” #GameofThrones #FireandBlood
When I was reading the east coast feed and Winter tweeted this, I was like, “AHHH!! NO WAY!! TOWER OF JOY?! WOO-HOO!!”
What a dick.
@geeky_vixen: Photo: Watching #GameOfThrones with my direcorgi.
DIRECORGI! That sounds almost as cool as Direschnauzer. But I do not have an appropriate picture of my Direschnauzer. So a Direcorgi will have to suffice for now.
@Cakeoid: Shush! #gameofthrones time. Lets see if Sean Bean managed to sew his head back on. #doubtit
@sugarcube82: Is Ned dead?
Ned is dead. In fact, that’s how our scene opens…
@TheDarkPower: Noooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo !!!
@NiceQueenCersei: urgh…Stark blood.
@recidivicious: Oh man I was not ready to see that.
@NiseyMiyake: No doubt Ned Stark is dead then… Man, I was really hoping for a twist!
@vixtabooble: Fuckity fuckity shit fuck noooooooo gameofthrones arse. fuck. Not sure how much I can take.
Seven hells, Tourettes syndrome is no excuse to not enjoy a good show. You’re gonna take it and you’re gonna like it!
Sansa doesn’t like it though. THUD.
@Ill1illone: omg she fainted….. I looooooove Sansa…… Sophie Tuyrner ftw! all the kids have been so good.
So Yoren grabs Arya…
@ReallyAlly: Yoren, you are so epic.
@tribalmeg: Yorren’s so much better looking in the movie than he’s described in the book.
If that’s your type, sure.
@SACricketGirl: Stay strong, Arya. Stay strong, sweetheart…..He is cutting your hair for your own good
She can’t hear you, Cricket! Give a little whistle!
Meanwhile at Winterfell….
@Ill1illone: Isaac has been awesome, ppl think hes cute or whaever but hes got mad talent…
@thekeelo_g: Tonks is a weird looking chick
@iVigil: I just found out that Osha from #GameofThrones is also Tonks from Harry Potter. How did I not see that until now?
Not sure. Every time she appears on screen, Twitter gives a collective “TONKS!” screech.
@bibliotech: Hey, Rickon! I keep forgetting that he exists. #thelittleststark
@merder4ever82: Everytime I see Rickon, I freak out. I barely remember him. lol
@Ill1illone: art rickon rocks on!
@tribalmeg: Hey, Rickon does exist.
Rickon is not a figment of our imagination. He talks too. So perfectly emo! His signature killing move is the “say something completely depressing and then turn and walk away” TOTAL PWN.
Speaking of fatal things…
@SCHirst: It’s Shaggydog!!!!!!
@queenofcrows: YES! MOTHERFUCKING SHAGGYDOG!
@_susaramsch: Shaggydog looks really great. Shaggydog > Ghost
@Tlieso: I think Shaggydog is the prettiest (most handsome?) wolf after Ghost.
@AreOh: That wolf was looking at him like ‘nigga, say something else’.
I thought that too.
The news of Ned’s death hits Camp Stark, and it does not go over well at all.
@_susaramsch: Uhhh, Cat, you don’t look well. :(
@PKGM: :( :( :( :( :( :(
@inkasrain: Tears in my eyes already :-(
@pwallacetn: 12 min in and I’m already crying
@mduh: I’m crying all over again! #imissned
@lucchaser: This is so fucking sad, I’m pissed the fuck off right now!!! #HB
Some brief levity was found in the fact that Robb was beating on a tree with his sword, and the tree was sort of winning.
@NiceQueenCersei: Robb hates trees.
@SCHirst: oh my ROFL! That tree!!! *dies*
@hrobins: Robb Stark is not having a good Father’s Day.
@tribalmeg: Thank you for pointing out that that shit will ruin a sword, Added Scene.
@bibliotech: That’s what I love about the Starks. Their calm, pacifist ways. #killthemall #dontmesswiththestarks
They didn’t start this fight, bro!
Back in King’s Landing, King Joff enjoys a merry day at court, jesting with the lords and ladies of his realm whilst hearing the dulcet notes of a bard who probably should have stayed at the Eyrie. Where it’s safer.
(And isn’t that saying something.)
@King_Bobs_Ghost: STOP STOP STOP NO MORE BLOODY SINGING #whatthecurtains
@Emmawhizz: He’s still better than the shite on Britain’s Got Talent.
@Aldoonio: king Jeoffery is the new Paula Abdul
@cdeminski: Someone should kill that songster…
@KwanaWrites: Worse song ever.
@stevedew77: “Your fingers or you tongue?” Ummm…is “coccyx” still in the mix?
And I thought “Cake or death?” was a tough choice.
The Joff. Beloved by all.
@madmechanic78: Fair play. Jofry is a right little bastard
Well maybe not all.
@feemcbee: I’d kill that stupid pixie-face little prick
@Emmawhizz: I hope blonde pointy nosed, boy king that looks like a man kids make out of stickle bricks gets all that’s coming to him.
@TheDenDon: Joffrey you wee wankstain!!
@Tlieso: At least Ser Ilyn sanitizes his weapons of torture. Mighty thoughtful of him.
@SamuelERobinson: Don’t do it, Wilko!
@cheesybones: Joffrey is like a mini Caligula and that’s saying something
@athena606: That’s what you want Sansa :p
Mmmm, not so much any more.
Joff takes Sansa on a fanciful tour of the castle walls…
@Ocean5ouL: “As soon as you’ve had your blood, I’ll put a son in you.” Joffrey is such a romantic (sick bastard).
@Moonbootica: oh thats just horrible, poor Sansa
@1Afshin: Joffrey , the most hated guy on the planet ATM
@Shayha: “My mother says a king should never strike his lady” *has someone do it for him* Lol.. ass hole
@ZGLow: God, Sansa is having the WORST fucking Father’s Day. #GameOfThrones
@Maxative: Watching Sansa get twated around the face was deeply satisfying even if I am starting to like her. AWESOME SEASON FINALE
@mherr1979: The Hound is in Kingsguard armor!!!
@CrystalMind_: i’m pretty sure i can kick joffrey’s ass.
@Le_Big_Macc: I could kill that bastard of a King.
@lessthanair: OMFG YES YES YES
@shannonpixie: The Hounds eyes already seem gentler!
@ReallyAlly: WHO GIVES A FUCK WHO IS KING. IT CAN BE SHAGGYDOG FOR ALL I CARE. JUST KILL FUCKING JOFFREY.
Sheesh, we’re working on it, Ally.
All hail King Shaggydog, first (and hopefully last) of his name.
@heynicki: Sansa can redeem herself by killing this lil inbred bastard in his sleep.
@jaypgunn: KILL JOFFREY FOR THE LOVE OF GOD
@AllanaWoods1: He should have let her push that prick off the side of the building #grrr #killJoffrey
@juliathetenth: Sansa, you should have pushed him when you had the chance!!!!
@wispa9: I always liked how the Hound kind of protects Sansa. :’)
That’s not all he does. If you read the SanSan fanfiction, that is.
@hoolita: Whoa did everyone see the death stare in Sansa’s eyes?! You kill that boy.
@JosephFinn: You’re an odd, complicated man, Hound.
@franquiz55: Jeffrey is such an asshole, that was just cruel showing Sansa, Neds severed head. I just want him to die.
@EnglishBob84: Holy shit, Joffrey is one evil fucker!
@queenofcrows: That’s my girl, Sansa. Keep your head up and one day you’ll kill them all. #justaprediction
@Jehefinner: And Sansa see’s the light.
@Ill1illone: I luuuuuve Sansa…… hearbreaking scene.. Sophie Tuyrner ftw! omg all the kids have been so good.
@Samantha12Jane: OH NO. Joffrey is trending!!! I don’t wanna know!!! I won’t until tomorrow!!!
@helenjosephine: Lord Joffrey needs to get slapped again.
That’s King Joffrey.
But because of the high demand, I give you: Achilles Last Stand!
@strangerbabble: Poor dead Ned. I would like to mount Joffreys head on that spike,as long it had reached his neck by travelling up via his ass.
Back at Camp Stark, Robb holds council with his most trusted men. And his mother. And that damned cackling Mormont woman.
@Aldoonio: Renly can bring peace to the 7 kingdoms… Robb can’t!
We always seem to get one or two Renly-loving tweets. Gethin Anthony did his job well.
@Rhaygar: King in the North! King in the North!
@pmsmrsmoose: The king of the north!
@NiceQueenCersei: All hail King Robb #yummy
I think you already have your bed full, your grace.
This was popular:
@zergbane: THE KING IN THE NORTH!
@lankeymarlon: THE KING OF THE NORTH
@brady_salz: DA KING IN DA NORTH
@bluegirl1878: The King of the North! Christ that scene gave me goosebumps
@ipopic: The rest of course was bloody brilliant. I got shivers watching Stark bannerman yelling “King in the North!”.
@ralasdair: “The King in the North!” That scene’s almost better on TV than on the page…
It was goooooood.
@la_revanche: THEON. AND. ROBB. SHAKING AND CRYING DFDJKGDFHKGHDFKSL #KINGINTHENORTH #BEAUTIFULBROMANCE #IGNORINGTHEBOOKSLALALALAAAAA
Dude. Did you just out-Paco Paco?
Catelyn had other company in mind…
@bibliotech: HATERS TO THE LEFT, IT’S CATELYN STARK TIME.
@Dinkologist: At least they have a spare Lannister capture to slap around.
@mherr1979: Jaime, stop flirting. Lol
@Aldoonio: Jamie Lannister never loses his charm!
@bibliotech: Everything needs more Jamie. Everyth–HOLY SHIT, DON’T MESS WITH CATELYN, SHE WILL MESS YOU UP.
@AudreeJo: Beat that asswipe with that rock Lady Stark! BEAT HIM!
@MamaMommyMom: ‘I do like a violent woman.’
Jaime does get slapped a lot, I’ve noticed.
@SCHirst: There are no men like me, only me. Oh yeah!
@ReallyAlly: OMFG HE IS SO SEXY
@ReallyAlly: CATELYN QUIT WHINING LIKE A LITTLE GIRL AND CUT OFF HIS BALLS AND SEND THEM TO CERSEI
@eserei27: I can’t help liking Jaime Lannister. I feel so dirty.
Welcome to the world of Ashley Hebert.
Speaking of damaged skanks, Cersei and Lancel just finished their “business transaction” (insert Westeros doggystyle joke as needed)…
@Jehefinner: Good grief, is there anyone Cersai isn’t shagging??
@Nimbusyosh: W8, who’s the queen fucking now?
@KimberleeVDW Is she slumping all her brothers? Chile!
@astrid26a: Now she’s banging another relative?!
@soleilani: Cersei you depraved piece of work. #smh
@pollywebster: Wow, Cersi is sleeping with another relative. Yuk!
@lucchaser: Like how old is he?!? He looks like 12
@LaureEve: What *is* it with Cersei and shagging her own family members? Christ on a bike.
Christ on a bike indeed!
@hillbl81: A Lannister always pays his debts, and has inappropriate relations with relatives.
@Drizzll: Gah…I want a boy like that…Get back in bed!!
I remarked to my wife that Lancel’s ass was smaller than our dog’s. She agreed.
Over at Camp Lannister, Tywin gives a grudging respect to Tyrion. A smidgen. And Tywin is not a happy man.
@Monica_G_: “THEY HAVE MY SON!” oh yes they do!
@vivaciousvirgo: Is this Papa Lannister’s way of apologizing to Tyrion? If so, it’s still insulting.
@mrsawesomesauce: WTF!!???? The teeny little Hand of the King!!!! Go Tyrion!! #thingsaregettingood
Tyrion is given all he has ever wanted: his father’s grudging respect. He’s told, however, that there is one thing he cannot have.
So naturally he decides he’s going to have it anyway.
@LaughingStorm: No whores at court makes for a dull court.
@katiebabs: Tyrion, you are one smooth mofo. Take me.
@SolomonGrundy2: @GameOfThrones Line of the night: He’s always been a cunt.
@Blaquemagus: Now why would he call his dad a cunt on Father’s Day?
@AryaSheWolf: Happy Father’s Day Tywin Lannister, you’re a cunt.
@mrsmina: This midget is getting the puss #gameofthrones~ ALL THE TIME!!!
@_susaramsch: Shae fan here!
@brigadeiro: NAO GDOATO DESSA SHAE G_G A DOS LIVROS É MELHOR
The only part I understood was G_G.
Shae the funny whore?
@les111280: Actually that was pretty funny Shae, so I guess you are Shae the funny whore.
@AltiusTendo: This casting of Shae is so so wrong. She’s supposed to be much younger and this actress is just… crap.
@tmvogel: I like the changes they’ve made to Shae.
@ReallyAlly: WHAT DOES A HAND NEED, SHAE? A BLOWJOB?
It couldn’t hurt.
@zeezaleez: It need the Dathraki storyline to pick up.
Back at the Dothrakis…
@la_revanche: i hate this maegi bitch so fucking much omg ;____________; #gameofthrones #wellthisisthepartwhereistartedweepinginthebook
@ReallyAlly: OMFG I SHIP DANY/JORAH SO HARD #FUCKTHEBOOKSIWANTTHEMTOGETHER #GameofThrones
@kippinsk: This sorceress is about to wake the Dragon…
@DaddyRunsALot: I love the way Mirri Maz Duur was written & is acted
@SarBEARODACTYL: This fate COULD have been avoided if Daenerys had a sassy gay friend… (Sorry, I had to.)
@mherr1979: Dany, still so naïve. Own your actions, girl.
@mikeypx: snooki fucked over the khaleesi
@stevedew77: Worst. Spell. Ever. Can I at least just get, like, bigger boobs?
@AltiusTendo: Bloody Mirri Maes Duur. Evil witch.
@SamanthaHamed: Her baby’s dead and her husband is braindead. Nice.
@SirGeoff82: Bitch Bitch Bitch Bitch! Your gonna get burned.
@_SaraLouise_: Soooo Drogo is a vegetable?
@Sir_Davidio: This is so sad. :( :( :(
@aurel_ska: Poor Dany;______;
@NiceQueenCersei: I wish that was me with Drogo. Just so i could molest him a little bit.
Well aren’t you just about the biggest skank ever!
@ReallyAlly: EMILIA CLARKE IS FLAWLESS
@athena606: @sourpurple OMG soooo sad :’(
@cone_eye: Make him a dragon omlette Blondie! That’ll wake him up
@Paco_ICEandFIRE: PLAY WITH HIS NIPPLE DANY! THAT ALWAYS GETS A REACTION OUT OF ME!! #ANDPARTSOFME
Sweet whispers and tender touches led to soft caresses which led to…
@wawoodworth: SHE JUST KILLED CONAN!
@SolomonGrundy2: You can’t tell me that Drogo is going out like a bitch?
@DeeDizzle123: WHY DO THEY KILL ALL OF THE COOL CHARACTERS?!?!?!
@PhilCiallela: No one is safe on this show. #KhalDown
At the Night’s Watch, the Wall is found weeping for want of Lord Snow…
@Melanie_RF: Jon Snow is flawless. I hear his hair is insured for 10,000 gold dragons
@NiceQueenCersei: I so want to join in the chase for Jon Snow. #comeheregoodlooking
WILL YOU STOP—
@mherr1979: This is awesome. Well done, boys.
@dontcare06: awww I love how they went after Jon the nights watch should be a boyband
@amarettosaurus: The Night’s Watch is seriously the most epic bromance ever.
@archersparadox: I wonder how much members of the Knights Watch masturbate. #probablyalot
@tmvogel:I like that they haven’t changed Samwell.
They have changed Samwell. Slightly. To better use John West’s comedic timing. I love how his voice climbs like five octaves when he’s scared. Six when he’s scared of Jon. Nine when he’s smacking into a low-hanging tree branch.
“Did we catch him?”
@Paco_ICEandFIRE: SAM + BRANCH + SCREAM = ME DEAD
@B_Joseph_G: Can’t stand Samwell Tarly, awful annoying character in the books and the series.
@TalmBot: My question is…how did they catch him?
I’m glad you asked this! You see, a pursuing host always has the advantage with regard to speed and stamina, as different riders can move to the fore in order to lead the pursuit, allowing the riders behind to “draft,” which gives—oh, wait, I guess that’s nullified by Sam’s presence.
The answer is: I don’t know.
@Gladiatorslady: The Oath of The Nights Watch gave me goosebumps……Robb & Khal have brought me to tears.
@WhatHappenedWas: I’m so confused. Is the brother on the Night’s Watch NOT the same brother who was proclaimed future King of the North?
So we join Grand Maester Pycelle in his King’s Landing Red Keep chambers… with a very familiar guest!
@ArleighTSL: Hey, look it’s Ros!
@tara_atrandom: Oh hey, Ros’ ass. Been a few weeks.
@Khalahd: Oh….is that how we see Ros again? So she’s Pycelle’s girl instead of a servant? Interesting….
@tmvogel: Oh, lord. Another sexposition scene.
@SueThePirate: ROS SEXPOSITION FTW!!
@Ch3rylC: I don’t think she is interested in what you are saying
@NOLAQueenD: how is it that HBO can get even paunchy Homer (of Greece) lookin MFers to be half naked in their shows?
@amheartles: Dont know whats goin on but am like the boobs am seeing.
@SSRDoug: How did Barry Goldwater get into #gameofthrones?
@Lils4reals: A girl cleaning her crotch. You never fail to amaze me
@xoamelia: The pubic hair is just not accurate on this show.
@SSRDoug: @xoamelia They spent all that money on CGI and not enough on mirkins.
Really, though, do they need the merkins? She looks red-headed to me.
@jacobite11: Somebody get Pycelle a slip for God’s sake…
@Sir_Davidio: Old man’s gotta stretch. It is known.
@weepwop: ewww old man stretching
@inkasrain: Oh, SO did not need to see that.
@Paco_ICEandFIRE: UM… IS PYCELLE GONNA DO YOGA NOW?!
@lessthanair: Roz gets more lines in season one than Sandor. Not cool.
He’s not much of a talker though, really. Hound’s a doer. They should have him… doing things!
@_susaramsch: Fine additional scene in terms of significance, if you ask me. Pycelle plays his own game.
@NOLAQueenD: how is it that HBO can get even paunchy Homer (of Greece) lookin MFers to be half naked in their shows?
@Paco_ICEandFIRE: WHAT?! THIS BITCH IS FAKING IT?! WTF?!!!!!!!!!!
@FJResto: WHAT? THE ? FUCK?
Relax. Homie got to run game.
Speaking of running game…
@tribalmeg: “When you picture yourself up there, how do you look? Does the crown fit?” Varys, you rock.
@creygor: “it’s hard for them to simper and bow without their heads” – HA!
@tara_atrandom: “Do you spend a lot of time wondering what’s between my legs?” God help me I’m starting to love Varys.
@Paco_ICEandFIRE: VARYS IS RIGHT. THAT WAS WEAK, LITTLEFINGER
@_centraltime: i would watch an entire series of littlefinger and varys being bitchy with each other.
@IndieGoPop: You two, just kiss already. Bromance with manipulation, my favourite
@ArleighTSL: Varys and Littlefinger….Westeros Spy vs Spy.
@seamaidens: Littlefinger and Varys are such a cute couple
@vivaciousvirgo: Fearing my gash?! LOL. #dead
Out to Arya, who has a lot less hair. Or less hair and a wig as well. Because that’s one bad wig. Possibly (up for debate) the Worst Wig Yet.
MEMO TO MAISIE WILLIAMS: Just hack that
That’s right. You’re chicken.
(And they say I don’t communicate well with children. Faaugh!)
@strangerbabble: Biter! #OhFuck
@saezutte: oh i see you mr. jaqen in the hood
@ikkiv12: Tomboys about to lay the smack down #gameofthrones
@NOLAQueenD: man, poke that fat fuck.
@GameOfThrones: “I’m good at killing fat boys. I like killing fat boys.” – Arya – Great little actress.
@tribalmeg: Arya is awesome. “I like killing fat boys. I’m good at killing fat boys.”
@Ms_Rena: Arya “I like killing fat boys” FLOVE her
@ReallyAlly: O HAI THAR JAQUEN
@shannonpixie: OMG HOT PIE YOU ARE FUCKING UGLY.
@lessthanair: OMG LOMMY AND HOT PIE. GENDRY. CRYYYIIINNNGGG
@_susaramsch: Hot Pie! He’s destined for greatness! #TeamHotPie
@ikkiv12: IT’S HIM OFF OF SKINS SEASON ONE !
@CocoNicodemus: Ok WOW. King Robert’s bastard son, the black smith, is beyond fine. Catchin up on the last episode of #GameOfThrones. My bro got me hooked.
@ScienceFiction: I like Arya’s new ‘do.
@shortstuff106: Arya! Your hair!
@sourpurple: I wish the age difference between the actors wasn’t as weird as it is because I ship Gendry and Arya so bad in the books.
@Sir_Davidio: Arry is SO DAMN CUTE.
@_jilly: Gendry and Arya – the destiny begins!
@elliemae782: Arya is a bad ass! She’s going to be A OK!
Back at the Wall… ’tis time for a Ranging! Northward bound! But… not before the Old Bear gives Jon an earful.
@DePhrank: “are you a brother of the nights watch or a bastard boy who wants to play at war?”
@tribalmeg: Great Ranging is totally badass. Great scene there. This is probably the best episode yet.
@_centraltime: EPIC MUSIC.
The time has come. Funeral pyre!
@JrDreadOnline: Oooh hold on.. the funeral pyre…are we going to see what I’ve been waiting to see?! OOOH
@mherr1979: Hold on to your butts, people
@SCHirst: Poor, poor Jorah, Dany is such a tease.
@beng1978: Jorah is much hotter than Drogo #justsayin
@silkskinned: THOSE WHO WOULD HARM YOU WILL DIE SCREAMING Dany for President 2012
@ArleighTSL: “But it is not your screams I want. Only your life.” Daenerys Targaryen
@ReallyAlly: YOU WILL SCREAM, BITCH
@Khalahd: Only death can pay for life….Mirri taught her this. An life there shall be.
@yourfavblogger: The women are more ruthless than the men! Sheesh!!!
@mikeypx: BOOM. take that snooki.
@chocolategirl1: Daenerys Stormborn of House Targaryean.
@angelus788: Finally Khaleesi being ruthless!
@ReallyAlly: JORAH BE QUIET AND GET IN MY PANTS
@NiceQueenCersei: Khaleesi barbeque? #ohno
@NiceQueenCersei: oooh…witch burning? thats even better
@whathappen2Dan: Burn the witch
Fade to black…
… Fade in:
Twitter had the expected dracosplosion.
@Paco_ICEandFIRE: FOR A SECOND THERE I THOUGHT THE EPISODE ENDED! I WAS GONNA START FREAKING OUT
@TataniaRosa: Oh they are so beautiful
@DanceWithBecks: @GameofThrones …. I just nerded… EVERYWHERE!!!!!!!!! #multiplenerdgams
@lmeller: OHMYGOD #GAMEOFTHRONES LAST EPISODE WAS AMAZING I’M SPEECHLESS BEST TV EVER!!!
@SCHirst: That scene just gave me goosebumps. Wowser.
@Rebekah__: Oh my god…. so much awesomness!!!!!
@gsusjones: She is the Dragon Queen!
@matchingwits: Shit. Just. Got. Real. (With). (Mother). (Fucking). (DRAGONS).
@Kel2708: gameofthrones damn good
@DePhrank: …and she’s the dragon’s daughter. Nice!!!
@mBlitz: Nice Dragons! #Game

@Bi50N: That was one strategically placed dragon…
Hey, it was a Venus de Milo thing, alright?
@woody459: oh #gameofthrones was awesome 2nite what an intriguing ending….!!!!
@ManxJools: Brilliant. Thats all I can muster, just Brilliant.
@StoneyboBoney: @RBLeMoyne That final scene was EVERYTHING I WANTED. Well, no, because everything I want would have been S2 starting right after
@JoeZed: GameOfThrones FUCKING EPIC. That’s how u conclude a season with the greatest cliff hanger, ever. #Outstanding #DaenaerysTargaryen
Ad we fade out with the echoing hiss of screeching dragons sounding off in the early dusk. So bloody good
CGI team. Time to take that bow. For that and the Twins, especially. But mostyl for the dragons who were perfect.
@joannsvh: #gameofthrones theme is now available on #iTunes. Thank you for the music, Ramin.
I got it on iTunes. It’s great. Next to the opening credit score (which will always have a special place in my heart), my favorites are “Victory Does Not Make Us Conquerers,” “To Vaes Dothrak,” and (not shockingly) “Fire and Blood.” I was a little disappointed they did not include the quiet, mournful score they rolled credits with at the end of episode 9.
Some people are harder to please than others…
@Nick_Morgan: Not exactly a mind blowing finale.
@Xo_Adrienne_Xo: Never watching @GameOfThrones again, u went too far taking Ned n Drogo #fireandblood Wat were they thinking
@loulastar: #GameOfThrones… #worstendingever?? Yes!! Huge thumbs down.
You know, you present a strong argument, but I’m still gonna go with the ending to Dallas as Worst Ever.
I’d say most of the people were quite impressed. Or you know, experiencing other emotional states.
@StoneyboBoney: EH MEH GHEEEEEED! #GameofThrones. Just… HELL TO THE HOLY SHEEP. That’s some damn fine tv, folks. I’m all up in it in the am.
@heyDian: OH. MY. GOD. THE FINALE’S ENDING WAS AS EPIC AS THE BOOK’S ENDING. BRAVO #GAMEOFTHRONES! BRAVO! annafdd WHEN IS THE SECOND SERIES?!?
@mrslikewhoa: ON. POINT. season 1 finale was EPIC.
@Jessnika: @GameOfThronesUK wow what an ending
@ZenaRo: @GameOfThrones we need one more hour!
@katcalbes: Time to read the books! :) RT @BrandiMiller: HOW are we expected to wait until SPRING 2012?!?!?
@beng1978: This series was SO good and the books just get better!
@Obi1mcmurphey: Still can’t stop thinking about the dragon scene in #gameofthrones. Total badassery. #awesome
@ipopic: #gameofthrones producers must have something against making characters bald-Syrio,Tywin and now Dany all kept their hair as opposed to books
@ipopic: Tyrion as Hand of the King is just one of the reasons why I can’t wait for second season.
@lucysheridan: All very well but where is winter and when the hell is it coming?! It’s later than Jools Holland
@jenslamb: I actually think I prefer the TV series to the books, which is unusual for me.
BLASPHEM—well, actually, it’s close.
@Owsler: Every character beat in #gameofthrones is pure joy. So rich and only 10 hours. 2012 can’t get here soon enough.
@lucysheridan: Nice one Series 1 #Gameofthrones – worth every single one of the 55 MILLION dollars! Holy shit that was good
@josephglass: Aw man that was good! Gonna have to read the #GameOfThrones books now. No way I can wait for the next series!
@MagicStick: Aw fuck. I can’t wait for season two now. Decision made. I’m reading the books.
@majorbisho: The @GameofThrones finale was immense. @HBO did an amazing job with the cgi there.
@Alisa_Luciana: Wow, HBO, why don’t u just take my fucking soul &sell it for crack money while you’re fucking at it. On quite the roll here.
Fucking HBO! How dare they?
@BleakHarvest: To all those that loved the show, please take some time to enjoy the books and prepare for A Clash of Kings!
@alecbojalad: I’ve not tweeted about #gameofthrones today so here goes…there has never been a better first season of televison. Never.
Honestly, it’s neck-and-neck with Firefly for me. Though I feel almost too close to the production I’m not sure I’m 100% biased. I change my mind on a daily basis.
@GreenLineBand: #gameofthrones season finale was so sick.
@Spacecadet570: GAH why must i wait a whole year to see more! thats such a long long time!
And now a message to Charlie Sheen:
@michaeljkremer: @charliesheen who wants #tigerblood if you could have #dragonblood? #gameofthrones finale
@Shilarra: I need to hibernate till spring waiting sucks
@StoneyboBoney @txvoodoo I cannot believe how long I have to wait for Season 2 OH MY GOD NOOOOOO! #GameofThrones #itstotallyworthit
@MichelleMiles: GameOfThrones Best show. Ever.
@fangstokill: ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ GameofThrones
I couldn’t have said it any better, Fangs.
@Sir_Davidio: I bet all my followers are SO PUMPED that I won’t be tweeting about #GameofThrones #FireandBlood for a whole year.
Mine will be pumped I won’t be retweeting this stuff for another year. I spoiled the dragons to my boss at Daemon’s TV. She was not pleased.
So is there anyone with one burning question we all have in mind for next season?
@AryaSheWolf: @GameOfThrones Will the Hound get more lines? :( #littlebird
Really? That was the burning question?
(I would request scenes, not lines. He’s the strong, silent type!)
Come on now. Any more?
@kyle_sommers: Who’s going to play Stannis? Better question: who will be Strong Belwas?
That is an interesting question, but not necessarily a better one. Better question would have been: Who will play the Tickler?
(Get Joe On The Show!)
Seeya next year, my Tweeples!
