Last night’s Game of Thrones delivered what just might be the most brutal and upsetting twist in the show’s seven year history. The epic fantasy series is infamous for slaughtering innocent people, but never quite like this. Even when we’re watching heroes get murdered at a wedding or a little girl burnt at the stake, at least it was the bad guys doing it. But on Monday, we saw Daenerys Targaryen, Breaker of Chains and Mother of Dragons, turn half of Kings Landing to ash.

Unsurprisingly, the episode has divided fans on social media, with some viewing her actions as a betrayal of a character who has always railed against tyrants, and others seeing it as the natural end point for a woman who, to be fair, has been mercilessly butchering her enemies for about five seasons now.

And how have fans been expressing all this? Through memes, of course.
