No matter how prepared you were for last night’s series finale of Game of Thrones, it still hit like a ton of bricks. While it may be too soon after Jaime and Cersei’s fate for that joke, the final episode really did deliver an emotional punch and fans won’t be getting over it any time soon.

It’s an amazing thing, actually, that this article can even be written, as I really did expect the internet to break last night. But here we are, writing, reading and for some of us, re-watching. So much happened and there’s so much to talk about, but the biggest death of the entire series was none other that Daenerys Targaryen. At the hands of her lover, Jon Snow, no less.

It was a moment you could almost see coming. You saw the look on his face last week as Dany was laying waste to King’s Landing. He witnessed her destroy an entire city and turn its people to ashes, all for what? Cersei killing her friend? Jon knew from her actions, and the fact that she knew Jon was the rightful heir to the iron throne, that Dany had to be stopped. He tried talking her down in the moments before her death, but had no luck. Having no other option, he feigned understanding her feelings and when he was close enough, he kissed her and thrust a dagger through her heart. So brutal.

Of course, the fans have now taken to Twitter to share their thoughts on the moment and below, you’ll find a sampling of what they’re saying:

Of course, the Dragon Mother’s death was just one of many moments that will be stirring up controversy from the show’s final season, and understandably so. I mean, seeing Drogon lay waste to the Iron Throne moments after, when we thought it would be Jon Snow who would melt? Edge-of-your-seat stuff right there.
