Game Of Thrones finale brought out some dramatic mixed reactions from celebrity viewers
***Warning: Contains spoilers for Game Of Thrones season eight.***
Game Of Thrones has officially ended after an eight-year reign as the biggest television show on the planet, but how did your favourite celebrities react to the finale?
After last week’s heated battle at King’s Landing, Cersei Lannister was killed after being crushed by the falling walls of the Red Keep – leaving the battle for the Iron Throne wide open between the surviving characters.
After being convinced to take a stand by Tyrion Lannister (Peter Dinklage), Jon Snow (Kit Harington) kills Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) in the throne room during a kiss embrace with a dagger.
As Drogon looks set to burn Jon alive, the dragon directs his flames towards the Iron Throne itself – burning it into a molten mess before flying off with Daenerys’ body.
The leaders of Westeros agree to bow to Bran, apart from sister Sansa who wants the North to remain independent from King’s Landing rule. He agrees, leading Bran to become Bran The Broken, ruler of the six kingdoms.
This decision, however, comes at the cost of Jon Snow – who is forced to return to the Night’s Watch, stripped of his titles and unable to have children in order to keep peace with the Unsullied following his crimes of killing Daenerys.
There has been some mixed reaction to the ending, with many viewers flocking to social media with their own little reviews.
Of course, some many famous faces – inducing former cast members – popped up amongst those with a lot to say.
Narcos actor Pedro Pascal, who played Oberyn Martell in Game Of Thrones, had a few words for critics.
He tweeted: ‘Shut up, it was perfect. #GameofThrones.’
YouTube sensation KSI, however, was seemingly more excited that the show was over than anything else.
‘Me knowing I don’t have to see Game of Thrones on my timeline anymore,’ he shared with a meme of someone getting into bed to sleep peacefully.
Diplo re-shared an old tweet that said: ‘maybe it was never about the iron throne but, the friends they made along the way.’
He was, of course, referring to the fact Drogon melted the Iron Throne after seeing his dead mum – Daenerys, of course – lying in a pool of her own blood.
Adding to his new tweet, with a picture of the Throne on fire, the American DJ added: ‘ And you all laughed at me. ‘
A shocked Ninja, ‘BRAN DUDE BRAN?!?!?!? BRAN?!?!?!?!?!??!?!?!?!’.
We see the famous online streamer made good use of his caps lock to get his point across, and he wasn’t the only one.
Comedian Kid Fury, tweeted, ‘Drogon ACTED’ while Grammy winner Cynthia Erivo shared: ‘Bran is a BADMAN!!! Always a word!!! Ruler of the damn 7 kingdoms!!! #GameofThrones’.
Camilla Cabello documented her night in watching the show with a glass wine and wrote on her Instagram: ‘IN THE GAME OF THRONES, YOU WIN OR YOU DIE.’
