Spoiler warning for the finale episode of Game of Thrones, "The Dragon and the Wolf." If you proceed without watching first, don't say we didn't warn you.

Game of Thrones is done for another year. I'm sorry, I know, it's a terrible thing to realize. But it's true, it's over for 2017, and boy oh boy did it go out with a bang. The Season 7 finale was powerful and terrifying and momentous and relevatory.

And that means Twitter reacted in a big way. Yeah, people were pretty affected by the events of this episode, from Sansa Stark being a freaking bosto a long-awaited consummation -- that's timed with an incredible revelation, and more. What were the best reactions to the episode? Oh, we have you covered right here.

First off, let's just rip the Band-Aid off -- fans were here for Sansa and Arya Stark putting it hard to Littlefinger.

Speaking of big moments, how about that Jon Snow revelation, huh? It's official -- his real name is Aegon Targaryen, and by all rights he is the king of the Seven Kingdoms. Whoa. Oh, and while that was all being revealed he ummm ... got busy with his aunt. Whoops.

Yup, goosebumps over here, too.

So ... how about that undead dragon and the Wall coming down?

Rumor has it we won't get the last season until 2019. That's ... problematic for a fanbase who just got annihilated for 80 minutes.

Yup, life is awful. Thank the old gods and the new we can just rewatch that incredible Sansa Stark scene on repeat until then.
