The seventh season of Game of Thrones, the super popular fantasy television series featuring epic dragon battles and a whispering man named Littlefinger, finally came into everyone’s lives in summer 2017.
That meant that every Sunday night, people taking relaxing late-night strolls down the street could hear the pleasing sounds of summer: everyone screaming in horror as they react to all those life-altering twists.
It also meant that on this rollercoaster dragon ride of an adventure, people had a ball with the craziest moments online. Fans were invested all season long, which means social media feeds were steadily bursting with creative, cathartic and above all, hilarious Game of Thrones memes.
