The Best Memes and Reactions From Episode 5 of 'Game of Thrones,' Because Things Just Got Way Too Real

Season 8, Episode 5 spoilers ahead!

So, um, things got a little crazy on Sunday night, don't you think? While many of us were disappointed with the lack of utter devastation in Episode 3 "The Long Night" (though it was still a fantastic episode), with Episode 5 "The Bells," we all quickly learned we should be careful what we wish for, because I don't think any of us were hoping it would go down like that

To put it simply, Daenerys lost her damn mind and burned the entirety of King's Landing to the ground — including many, many innocent men, women, and children. While we all knew Dany was about to go cray on Cersei, I don't think any of us expected her to go rogue quite like she did. Thinking about it still sends a shiver down my spine. 

In addition to the mass destruction, we also saw many main characters reunite, fight (or embrace) and ultimately die (Varys, The Hound, Cersei, Jamie, the list goes on...). Arya also continued to be a badass, somehow surviving every ounce of dragon fire  and receiving divine intervention in the form of beautiful white horse. Ugh, Arya — literally what would we do without you?

Whether you feel betrayed by a character you so deeply admired, or are still recovering from watching 500,000 people die and an ancient city crumble into a pile of rocks and rubble, the "good" people of the internet sympathize with you and have given us hilarious memes to help us laugh/cry the pain away (or at least ease it a bit).
