GoT season eight, episode three - what a rollercoaster of emotions! At over an hour long, the episode made us feel everything.
Some of our favorite characters died, some survived, but most importantly, the Night King was defeated!
Game of Thrones fans were so shocked and moved by the episode that they went on social media to share their experiences as soon as it was over.
Some viewers agreed that it must have been the best episode in entire GoT history. Others felt so exhausted that they seriously considered calling in sick today.
But it wasn't just the plot that made them feel like they were in the battle too.
A lot of viewers complained about one surprising thing that the show's creators must have missed. Or did they?
If you're a hardcore Game of Thrones fan and are still recovering from last night's thrill, this page is for you.
Spoiler alert if you're not caught up yet!
We're officially half way through the final season of GoT.
One viewer, Jennifer Moorby, even called it "the best cinematic experience" ever.
Amanda Denise agreed, "The best show ever and tonight was the best episode out of all the seasons!!"
Hannah Bradley: "I think I almost peed myself 4 times because I couldn’t pause the tv at my hotel. Worth it."
Rochell Dickey: "My nerves are still bad! I feel like I had fifteen Red Bulls and 5 cups of Starbucks! I need a drink! ??"
Holly Paramapoonya: "I feel like I just fought the damn battle I’m so tired."
Christy Blank: "I’m emotionally exhausted. I may take tomorrow off."
Laurentee Shirley said, "Anyone else just happy that fewer people died than you thought??? Cuz my list of deaths was long and this actually wasn’t so bad ?"
Did you notice how little dialogue there was in the episode?
Overall, the episode left its viewers shocked like never before. Here are some of the best responses to the rollercoaster that episode three was.
Another viewer, Adam, replied saying, "It will be, some might say, a game of thrones."
No one will ever forget Arya's biggest moment.

Lyanna’s death was heart-breaking.

We're still thinking about the secretly intense scene with Bran and Theon.

But Arya’s incredible last-minute performance was so unexpected that once the show was over, fans flooded Twitter with memes.

But where was Cercei when everyone was dying?Her appearance in the third episode was doubtful before it even aired. We know that she was busy holding her ground at King's Landing, but still…
This one wasn't so funny when we watched the scene unfold.

The Night King and Bran's stare-off was super intense.
Bran and the Night King really did this for like 4 minutes. #GameofThrones #DemThrones https://t.co/zXhx3TfpsF— cowboy beWAP (@cowboy beWAP)1556505577.0
But there was one more thing that drew the viewers' attention and it wasn't part of the plot. Well, not really.

Not just in tone, but in the lack of light too.
The episode is very suspenseful but also, I can’t see shit. It’s too dark. #GoT— Saeed Jones (@Saeed Jones)1556501396.0
Turns out, turning up the brightness of the screen didn’t help.Kendalle Valoreyne Skorek: "I know I was yelling for those damn dragons to light shit up so I could see better and I had my brightness turned way up. ?" Others even tried turning all of the lights in their room out.
And some tried even more drastic measures.Like Kiser Ryan who "literally had to pause and adjust [his] TV's brightness, contrast, color settings and turn off every ambient light in the apartment to see what was happening. Now everything else is too intense..."
Britney Baker-Pittendrigh: "Watched on phone... shot brightness to highest LOL."

Thank goodness Beric Dondarrion was there with his sword.

Erael Maika Orinday Alegre: "[…] Let's thank Milessandre for lighting up our screen."
I would like to thank Melisandre for increasing the lighting in this episode by 100 #GameofThrones #GoT https://t.co/ngIQ5tHaDO— Nora Dominick (@Nora Dominick)1556501735.0
The darkness certainly added tension.
Mona Hasan: "They were fighting the army of the dead, were you expecting sunshine?"

Some fans were thankful that they couldn’t see the scary parts!
Best part of this episode is that it’s so dark I can’t really see anything to make me too scared. #GameofThrones #BattleOfWinterfell— Jackie Baum (@Jackie Baum)1556501445.0
