**SPOILER ALERT! DO NOT READ ON IF YOU HAVEN’T SEEN THE GAME OF THRONES SERIES FIVE FINALE**
Game of Thrones’ fifth season came to a dramatic conclusion last night and we still haven’t managed to scrape our jaws off the floor. There were shocking scenes, eye-watering realisations and deaths that we just didn’t see coming. I mean, we should have seen them coming – this is Thrones after all – but we weren’t expecting the show’s fifth run to end on so bloody a note. Did the showrunners forget that episode nine is traditionally supposed to be ‘the big one’?

As far as Stannis is concerned, I think we all knew he was never going to sit on the Iron Throne. So his death is fine. #GoT

Oh, and so did Myrcella.
Myrcella’s death really bothered me. I absolutely HATE what they did to Ellaria and the Snakes. Making them the bad guys infuriates me

While Twitter had something to say about Cersei’s walk of shame too,
And man. That Cersei walk of shame hurt. Even if you despise her, you have to admire her refusal to never be broken. She broke tonight.

Only #GoT could make you hate Cersei then make you beg them to kill the people who've done her harm.

never thought I'd feel bad for Cersei Lannister but damn. What a scene. Lots of credit to Lena Headey

One tweeter is already predicting what’s next for Cersei:
Cersei is going to kill everybody next season.

But it kind of already feels like there’s no one left…
Myrcella is dead. Joffrey is dead. Robert is dead. Renly is dead. Stannis is dead. Shireen is dead. …Help.

Game of Thrones returns next year. Yes. We’ve really do have to wait that long.
