Twitter Reacts To The Game Of Thrones Finale

And now our watch has ended (you knew that was coming). After eight seasons and 73 episodes, HBO's epic fantasy series Game of Thrones aired its series finale on May 19, 2019. While the final season remained divisive among some fans, the show's finale was still must-see television.

Hours before the finale aired, the show's stars shared heartwarming posts about their time on the mega-hit series, and actress Emilia Clarke was apparently afraid that Daenerys' character arc would make Beyoncé upset. "All I wanted to scream was 'Please, please still like me even though my character turns into a mass-killing dictator! Please still think that I'm representing women in a really fabulous way,'" Clarke told Variety, while discussing a meeting with the superstar. We're not sure how Beyoncé feels about it, but let's hope we find out one day.

However you might feel about the finale, it's over now, so that means the Twitter troops have issued their takes. Hop on your nearest dragon and let's take a tour of some celebrity Twitter reactions to the Game of Thrones finale.

Jessica Chastain

Everyone had their predictions on how Game of Thrones would end, and Jessica Chastain was no different. The Academy Award-nominated actress co-stars with Sophie Turner in Dark Phoenix, so she was a little partial on who she wanted to assume the Iron Throne. 

The Zero Dark Thirty star tweeted: "My theory: Sansa ends up on the Iron Throne Arya becomes the hand of the Queen Daenerys kills Jon Snow Arya kills Daenerys Tyrion continues to sh*t the bed And I miss all of it because I'm traveling. #gameofthrones @SophieT." None of Chastain's predictions came true. However, Sansa Stark did become Queen of The North, so hopefully Chastain is cool with that.

Roy Wood, Jr.

The Daily Show correspondent Roy Wood, Jr. is always good for a hilarious Game of Thrones take, and he didn't disappoint during the series finale. The comic didn't understand why Jon Snow had to be exiled to The Wall just to make Greyworm happy. "All they had to do was chop off Grey Worm's head and mount that sh*t on the back of Bran's wheelchair like a safety flag. Unsullied would've laid down immediately," he tweeted.

Greyworm even set sail to Naath, so realistically, Jon Snow didn't need to leave. "One time in college to get some people out my house, I pretended I got called to work. So everyone had to leave. And I sold it. Got fully dressed, caught the bus, all the way to the transfer station. Then caught another bus back to a safe and empty home. That's all Snow had to do," Wood wrote.

Zara Larsson

While Twitter was on fire — just like King's Landing — over how Game of Thrones wrapped, Swedish singer Zara Larsson took a minute to remind everyone that the show never does what we, the masses, are expecting.  

The "Lush Life" hitmaker tweeted: "Y'all really watched neds beheading, the red wedding, when cersei blew that green sh*t up, night king killing the dragon etc etc etc and act SURPRISED because it didn't end they way y'all thought it would????? I have to laugh."

Mark Hoppus

Jon Snow returned to The Wall and reunited with his loyal direwolf, Ghost, who he left with Tormund after the battle with the Night King. Blink-182's bassist and co-lead vocalist Mark Hoppus said what we were all thinking. "The part that angers me the most is JON SNOW SHOULDN'T GET TO PET GHOST AFTER SENDING HIM AWAY!" he tweeted.

Jemele Hill

Former ESPN host Jemele Hill let us all know how she really felt about Bran "The Broken" Stark being named king. "Bran ain't sh*t. Just pulled the biggest finesse move ever. He stared at people a whole a** season cause he knew he was about to be king. #DemThrones," she tweeted. "So Bran gets to be king, despite the fact that he just put his name on the group project and didn't do any work. #DemThrones," she added.


T-Pain is a first ballot Game of Thrones tweeting Hall of Famer. His tweets are always gold. After Jon Snow killed Daenerys, he let his followers know how he felt and what he would have done if he was Jon. "Bruh I'm so stuck right now. I didn't think sh*t was bout to go down like that. I mean. I prolly woulda smashed one more time if I knew the plan..." he tweeted.

He also had a message to those criticizing the series finale. "I'd love to see the scripts to these shows that all these ppl that are criticizing GoT wrote. We might be able to get some money if you're that much better of a writer than the ones that kept you hype for 8 years," the rapper said

His final tweet included a behind-the-scenes photo of the cast and a message to them: "Thank you guys for all the hard work and dedication to Game of Thrones. All the time spent away from your families and loved ones. All the sh*t we give you for just trying to please us all. Until next time."

Leslie Jones

Saturday Night Live star Leslie Jones doesn't just tweet Game of Thrones spoilers, she adds clips of the scene she's spoiling. You have to respect her commitment to ruin each episode. After Jon Snow stabbed and killed Daenerys, Jones tweeted a good question: "WHAT YOU GONE TELL THE DRAGON JON!! @GameOfThrones @HBO."

Luckily for Jon, dragons apparently understand symbolism, and Drogon took out his rage on the actual Iron Throne by melting it to the ground. "The Dragon said f**k that thrown [sic]!!..." the Ghostbusters star wrote.

Whitney Cummings

Comedian Whitney Cummings had a lot of thoughts about the Game of Thrones series finale. "Before y'all start trying to say GOT is 'bad writing'...the writers of it have a billion dollars and literally all of your tweets are misspelled. #GOT7," she tweeted.

"Please use the #GOT hashtag when complaining about the wrong person being in power because if you don't specify it just sounds like you're talking about the actual news," she added

Elizabeth Banks

After the ashes settled, and Bran was elected King, Ser Brienne of Tarth took a moment to sit down and update Ser Jaime Lannister's legacy in the Book of Brothers. She had quite a few reasons to leave a bad Yelp review, but in the touching scene, the noble knight ensured her love's greatest hits made the cut. 

Actress Elizabeth Banks was moved — really moved. "The only time I teared up was when #Brienne wrote what she done wrote. #GameOfThones," tweeted The Hunger Games star.

Pedro Pascal

Pedro Pascal, who played fan-favorite Prince Oberyn, had apparently had enough of folks bashing the Game of Thrones series finale, and he decided to let people know. "Shut up, it was perfect. #GameofThrones," he tweeted. So there you have it, guys. It was perfect. You don't want to have a trial by combat with Oberyn.

Patton Oswalt

Comedian Patton Oswalt went political in his tweets about the Game of Thrones series finale as he analyzed the newly-formed King's Landing council and its governing style. "1/ Most hopeful scene from last night's #GameOfThonesFinale was the table discussion near the end. Sanitation, construction — boring civic concerns that make life 1000% more liveable. That's how it's SUPPOSED to be. THAT'S why you step up to govern," he tweeted

"2/ I really hope we mature past this Governing-By-Personal-Drama-And-Vengeance that, while entertaining, is UNLIVABLE. Banking, government and police work should be BORING. That's the sign of an evolved society. Quietly planning, anticipating & getting it done," he added.
