(WARNING: Major spoilers for the “Game of Thrones” season finale ahead)

Last season, “Game of Thrones” left its fans with one big thing to talk about: is Jon Snow dead or not? This season, they left them with way too many things to talk about. Every single minute of the show’s extended finale was loaded with moments designed to get fans pumped up for the big showdown coming up next year between the various factions still fighting for control of Westeros. Let’s get into them shall we?

First, there’s the most tragic of the many, many deaths that came in this episode. Margaery Tyrell is no longer with us.

Cersei destroyed her enemies with wildfire, but in the process she may have destroyed what little support she had left by bringing about Tommen’s death.

Samwell Tarly arrived in Oldtown, looking for more answers on how to beat the White Walkers. What he found was his little piece of heaven: The Oldtown Library.

Arya Stark appeared from out of nowhere and slit the throat of Walder Frey. It was a moment of poetic irony, as Frey suffered the same death his men brought upon Catelyn Stark.

Sansa made peace with Jon, but Littlefinger is back in her head, and she may not like the fact that her bastard brother is now King in the North.

And, of course, it was finally revealed through Bran’s visions that Lyanna Stark is Jon’s mother. That proves that Ned is not the father…it’s Rhaegar Targaryen.
