"The Long Night," the third episode of the eighth and final season of HBO's Game of Thrones, has taken social media by storm, shocking us all with some intriguing new plot developments (such as Arya Stark taking down the Night King) and some heartbreaking character deaths.


Among those we lost on Sunday night's episode: Ser Jorah Mormont, the exiled knight who pledged his loyalty to Daenerys Targaryen from the moment she became a Khaleesi, a queen of the nomadic Dothraki, in Season 1.

Fittingly, he died in her arms during the Battle of Winterfell, shortly after the Night King erupted into thousands of ice shards.

It was a sad end for one of our mainstays, and Emilia Clarke, who plays our Dany, paid tribute to her costar Iain Glen, who played Ser Jorah right to the bitter end.

These two have no doubt grown very close over the years, and Clarke shared a behind-the-scenes selfie of herself and Glen––still in his battle makeup––captioned with lyrics from Bonnie Tyler's 1988 hit "The Best."

Ser Jorah's death was one of the saddest moments from "The Long Night," bringing the story of a great knight's lifetime of service to a close.

Fans loved Clark's tribute, too.

Ser Jorah was a hero and don't let anyone tell you otherwise.

You bet he was, and don't forget the moment Dany's dragon came down to grieve alongside her!

Ser Jorah was at Dany's side from the very start––of course, you've been pretty invested in their relationship!

In a cast of such great characters, he immediately stood out.

No, we're pretty sure you're crying.

IT DEFINITELY DID.

Even HBO was emotional.

In a recent interview with People, Clarke shared that she and Glen became instant friends from the moment he comforted her following a mishap during her first day on set:

"The first day on set I fell off my horse and cried. I have the most visceral memory of the first day, it is Iain Glen calming the horse, calming me, and I was like: 'That is my friend for life.'"

Glen, for his part, revealed that he tried to make a farewell speech during his last day on set but that the "words didn't come out."

He expressed his gratitude for the experience:

"I've really enjoyed the journey as a whole. I loved going on the journey with Peter Dinklage, we had great fun doing that. But Daenerys and being by her side has always been my strongest association."

We'll miss you, Ser Jorah, but we're certain you're still watching over your Khaleesi.

Sometimes I think back to a teacher I had when I was a kid who demanded to know whether any of us were "raised in a barn" in response to crappy behavior. Namely littering. She hated littering. Can you blame her? It's a horrible habit and some people do it with no sense of shame. She dedicated much of her time to telling students to pick up after themselves and dispose of things properly. For that, I'm thankful.

But why didn't anyone else get the memo? The trash I see on the streets is obscene.

People had lots of thoughts to share after Redditor SneakyStriedker876 asked the online community,

"What seemingly uncivilized thing is commonplace in society?"

I love presents. I try to hide my enthusiasm, and I do my best to appease the greater public by saying "it's the thought that counts." But that is a WHOLE lie. I don't just love gifts, I love great gifts. And if you go rogue from my lists, please keep a receipt. It's just plain rude to divert from what the recipient has requested.

This thought process has emerged from experience. I have received some trash presents over the years and now I'm too old to pretend you just went crazy while shopping. Like... "do you even know me?!"

Redditor u/sulemannkhann wanted to hear all about the presents some of us have received that we prayed, came with a receipt, by asking:

What's the worst birthday gift you ever got?

I'm still on the fence about this whole extraterrestrial situation. I need more proof. Now I'm not naive enough to think that in this vast, endless universe only the human race exists. I just need proof, tangible, solid, didn't see it from my trailer through beer goggles proof.

I also need proof about the afterlife, another out there topic. Truth be told, I've never been that into this whole conversation. I've got enough daily problems on this planet, let alone worrying about making Will Smith's biggest hits into documentaries and not just popcorn/comedy space farce.

But let's compare thoughts...

Redditor u/ValencikHannibal197 wanted to discuss life beyond this planet, what do we really think? They asked:

What's the best theory on UFOs or aliens you've ever heard??
