Game of Thrones' seventh season has officially ended, leaving fans with a long wait and a lot to process.
While this episode of the HBO drama was different from many other major moments in that viewers had already guessed plenty of what was coming, the way the show handled its crucial moments left fans in awe and made for some pretty epic television.
From romance to death to a full-on zombie attack, the finale pretty much covered it all, confirming theory after theory and leaving fans with even more questions to be answered in season eight.
Click through for five of the best moments from GOT's season seven finale — obviously, spoilers ahead.
Jon Snow's true parentage
Fans have been speculating for months that Jon Snow is, in fact, a Targaryen, and that theory was cemented during Sunday's finale when Sam and Bran put their heads together to figure out that Rhaegar Targaryen didn't actually rape and kidnap Lyanna Stark as everyone thought, but rather, the two eloped and married after Rhaegar had his marriage to Elia Martell annulled.
As a result, their son, Jon — whose real name was revealed to be Aegon Targaryen — is actually the true heir to the Iron Throne, usurping Daenerys, who was confirmed to be his aunt...prevnext
Jon and Dany get together
...which only made Jon and Daenerys finally getting together all the more uncomfortable for some fans, although there are still plenty rooting for the two Targaryen, whose family has a history of incest.
Throughout the season, Jon and Dany grew closer and closer after their first meeting, with Jon eventually bending the knee to Daenerys and pledging his loyalty to her as his Queen.
As Bran and Sam were making the discovery of Jon's true parentage, Jon also personally pledged himself to Daenerys, with the two getting together on the boat they were traveling on. It's safe to say things are going to get complicated when the duo find out that Jon is actually a Targaryen and the true heir to the Iron Throne, a seat Daenerys believes is rightfully hers.prevnext
Jaime leaving Cersei
During the episode, Cersei, Daenerys, Jon Snow and Tyrion came together to try and negotiate a truce to help fend off the White Walkers, because fighting over thrones doesn't exactly matter when there's an army of zombies heading your way.
While Cersei told the others she would help them, she was, naturally, lying, something her twin brother Jaime quickly discovered. He disagreed with her, and she threatened to kill him, but he called her bluff and left King's Landing.
With this gesture, it appears Jaime may have finally plucked up the courage to leave his toxic relationship, although we won't know for sure until Season 8.prevnext
With Arya seemingly on trial, Littlefinger thought he was safe until Sansa gave fans what they had been waiting for and turned the tables on Petyr Baelish, accusing him of murder and treason with some help from her siblings.
Sansa also brought up the fact that he had betrayed her father, Ned Stark, and turned other members of her family against each other and had been attempting to do the very same to her and Arya, something the sisters caught on to and used to their advantage.
Littlefinger's pleas for help were denied, and Sansa thanked him for all the lessons he taught her before Arya sliced his throat, giving him a painful and well-deserved death.prevnext
The Night King destroying the wall
After the Night King captured Daenerys' dragon Viserion in season 6 and reanimated him, fans knew something bad was bound to happen with the White Walkers now in possession of a zombie dragon.
The Wall had stood for thousands of years, but Viserion's ice-blue fire destroyed a massive swath in just minutes, forcing the Night's Watch to run for cover as the resurrected dragon did his worst.0comments
The dramatic ending has officially left the door open for the White Walkers to enter Westeros, and only time will tell how far they get in their mission.
