Game of Thrones is finally over and you know what that means: your Sunday nights are finally free! But also, we know who won the much-coveted Iron Throne, and frankly it is not who you think.
Everyone’s been under the assumption that either Jon Snow or his aunt/lover Daenerys Targaryen would win the Iron Throne at the end of this series, but not so much. Instead, Westeros’ resident bird-boi Bran Stark slid into the Iron Throne (though it was melted by Drogon during the final episode, so it’s really more symbolic!), and will presumably have a long and successful reign making everyone extremely uncomfortable and
warging taking prolonged naps while everyone does his job for him.
As we know, Bran has no “claim” to the Iron Throne and ended up being elected as King by everyone on this show who didn’t end up dead. Which is kinda weird considering he’s shown no real interest in ruling and spends most of his time as a literal bird. And honestly, fans are not here for this turn of events and the vibe seems to be equal parts “really…him?” and pure rage.
Behold, some tweets that you might find relatable if you, too, are in a state of shock and confusion about Bran freakin’ Stark ending up on the throne when he literally did nothing other than get himself marked by the Night King for eight freakin’ seasons (it’s fine, I’m not bitter).
