The ‘Game Of Thrones’ Cast Had A Field Day While Posting Their Own Finale Reactions


Warning: Game of Thrones spoilers will be found below.

The Game of Thrones finale left many questions to be answered and other assorted loose ends to discuss, along with Easter eggs and things that the episode did right. No matter how one feels about how HBO ended their decade-long fantasy epic series, it’s clear that people stayed invested until the very end. For that reason, fans took the ending of the series very personally, and one would expect hot takes to give way to thinkier responses in the weeks, months, and years to come.

The finale night itself, however, was sheer madness. Millions of people took to social media to air their reactions, whether they were delighted or disgusted, and although showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss said they’d be drunk and off-the-grid during the broadcast, the juggernaut’s cast made themselves highly visible with a variety of reactions. First up, Pedro Pascal (who played the late Oberyn Martell, a.k.a. the Red Viper) told folks to “[s]hut up, it was perfect.”

Maisie Williams, beloved to fans as Arya Stark, was “just here for the memes.”

The photos started flowing. Kristofer Hivju (Tormund Giantsbane!) leered at the camera while sandwiched between Gwendoline Christie (Brienne of Tarth) and his wife, Gry, to prove that “[o]nscreen and offscreen love” does exist.

Meanwhile, Gwendoline Christie posted an image of herself with Kit Harington (Jon Snow) that spoke to the finale’s several surprises.

In short order, Sophie Turner (Sansa Stark), Emilia Clarke (Daenerys Targaryen), John Bradley West (Samwell Tarley), Pilou Asbæk (Euron Greyjoy), Jacob Anderson (Grey Worm), and Joe Dempsey (Gendry Baratheon) all added to the pile. No matter how disappointing people found the finale, this ensemble cast shall be missed.
