Oh. My. God.

Game of Thrones’ seventh season went out with a bang, scoring huge fan-satisfaction points. “The Dragon and the Wolf” both came too soon and offered moments that the series’ most loyal viewers had been waiting years for.

Spoiler warning: Stop here if you haven’t watched season 7, episode 7 of Game of Thrones

Here are five of the biggest moments in the finale, several of which are the biggest moments in the series so far:


1. Sansa and Arya Kill Littlefinger

Sansa got major redemption after all the shade that haters on social media have thrown her way over the course of this season, sentencing Littlefinger to death for all of his crimes. That’s right, Lady of Winterfell — you own that moment! And Arya carried out that sentence with glee. You just wonder what was going through the minds of the Lords of the Vale: They’re both terrifying and awesome at the same time!

Worth noting, too, that Bran was sitting back there, so it really was the three siblings making this moment happen.


2. The Summit of King and Queens

As if Dany’s epic arrival on Drogon wasn’t enough to cause Westerosi jaws to hit the floor, when Cersei and her team see the wight for the first time, the horror and dread — and Qyburn’s morbid fascination — are palpable.

After initially agreeing to support the cause, Cersei later, naturally, vows to betray the alliance. This move is directly out of her father Tywin’s playbook, you may recall.


3. Jaime Leaves Cersei

No. 2 above leads to this moment, Jaime on the road of honor — we’re assuming that, true to his word, he’s going to support the efforts to battle the army of the dead, right? He’s not off to Lys for some R&R.


4. The Dragon and the Dragon

Dany and Jon get together at the very same moment that Bran reveals to Sam that Jon is Targaryen, and Sam reveals to Bran that he might have missed the part where Jon isn’t a bastard.


5. Ice Dragon Viserion Destroys the Wall

Guess one of our burning questions was answered: Ice dragons breathe ice — Wall-destroying ice, that is. Or was it blue fire? Guess season 8 will tell us…
