Yes, Stannis is a complete [insert every horrible word you can think of here] but that scene at the end with Dany and her dragons… Wow.
We finally got to see the Mother of Dragons riding one of her babies, in the process leaving Tyrion, Ser Jorah and *what's his name* boyfriend to fend for themselves in the arena. Watch the scene below.
Of course, the internet went crazy for Khaleesi.
DRAGONS! DRAGONS! DRAGONS! DRAGONS! DRAGONS! DRAGONS! DRAGONS! DRAGONS! DRAGONS! DRAGONS! DRAGONS! DRAGONS! DRAGONS! . . . DRAGONS! #GoT— Steven S. Chang (@StevenSiboChang) June 8, 2015
It's amazing how Game of Thrones can make a dragon burning people the happy part of an episode. #GameofThrones— Jim Gaffigan (@JimGaffigan) June 8, 2015
Apparently there was a major NeverEnding story vibe.
Daenerys, Tyrion and Jon Snow's reactions were priceless.
How to Train Your Dragon was worth the watch. #GameofThrones— Daenerys Targaryen (@Daenerys) June 8, 2015
Fly to Westeros, Dany, we need the dragons. #GameOfThrones— Jon Snow (@LordSnow) June 8, 2015
She's inspired a lot of people to want to be like her.
when I grow up I want to be Khaleesi and rule the seven kingdoms and ride on the back of my dragons.— Hayley Rogers (@HayleyyRogers) June 8, 2015
But mainly people are really jealous.
Khaleesi gets to ride magic dragons and I get to ride the magic bus round Manchester, life is unfair— william henry (@WilliamHGough) June 8, 2015
Wish i was dany being able to ride dragons— Ell (@Ellie_mae_cox16) June 8, 2015
There's a lot of speculation as to who is going to ride Drogon's brothers.
Also, really, Dany should be the Queen. And who will be the other 2 to ride the other dragons? Jon and Tyrion. =))— Patty (@pattyrism) June 8, 2015
"So now that Daenerys is a dragon rider, who will ride the other 2 dragons?" -maybe Jon Snow, Brandon Stark or Tyrion? lalala~ #GoT— Rommel Porras (@r3mmel) June 8, 2015
The latest #GoTSeason5 episode got me like hope Tyrion learns to ride dragons soon.— Tanay Sharma (@JollyTanay) June 9, 2015
But not everyone was impressed with the CGI.
Shoutout to Game of Thrones' early 2000s-esc CGI. Serious, what's happened to it this season? Dance of Dragons was bad but this is terrible— Simon Jenkins (@SimonJenkins91) June 8, 2015
I hope the Lannister's don't find out that Daenerys' dragons are just cheap-looking CGI! #GameofThrones— Krister Johnson (@KristerJohnson) June 8, 2015
And it wasn't enough for people to forget about Shireen.
LETS RIDE SOME MOTHER FUCKING DRAGONS AND BURN OUR DAUGHTERS AT THE STAKE.— Cameron McAfee (@Mac_the_truck) June 8, 2015
Been waiting for 5 seasons for khaleesi to ride one of her dragons and here I am crying— Ej (@hatsonmats) June 8, 2015
All in all though, it was awesome.
