We may be in the height of the dry season in Cape Town but you probably wouldn’t have guessed by looking at the dam…
So much Game of Thrones happened in this week’s episode that, once again, fans could not hold back on social media. In fact, almost every Thrones character began trending on Twitter when the fourth episode aired on Monday morning.
Needless to say, there are spoilers large and small beyond this point.
Again, let us restate this, there are spoilers large and small beyond this point.
First, fans were outraged, but not all together surprised, by what happened with Brienne and Jamie.

Jamie literally took Brienne’s virginity, made her fall head over heels, and then told her that he’ll always be more in love with his sister. The level of fuccboi! #GameofThrones

With the rising tension between Daenerys and just about every other character on the show, no one could resist a good “I told you so”.

Many are also deeply upset about Missandei and Rhaegal and what it means for Dany’s arc.
Everyone tonight after watching Missandei be executed in front of Grey Worm, rhaegal shot down, Varys conspire against Dany, Jon send Ghost away without saying goodbye, Jamie leave Brienne for Cersei, and Dany lose almost everything she has: pic.twitter.com/kTMeFeGRei

Whoever ends up as the true Mad Queen, we can all agree that things are going to go up in literal flames next week.
