Warning: This post contains spoilers for season seven of Game of Thrones.
In “The Queen’s Justice,” a lot of real stuff went down. Bran Stark reunited with his sister Sansa in Winterfell, Olenna Tyrell dropped a knowledge bomb right before she voluntarily sipped on some poisonous wine, and of course, Jon Snow had a shaky meeting with Daenerys Targaryen about how everyone’s going down because the dead people are coming. But through it all, there were some deliciously funny moments, from Samwell Tar’s explanation for Jorah’s miraculous cure to Ser Davos’s Jon Snow intro.
The internet threw a party for every notable moment in the episode. See below for the very best memes.
