This article contains spoilers for Game of Thrones season 8.
Game of Thrones fans who are still reeling from the divisive series finale had an opportunity to immerse themselves in the show’s production one last time on Sunday with HBO documentary Game of Thrones: The Last Watch.
One highlight came during Kit Harington’s reading of the last episode, when he learned that Jon Snow kills Daenerys.
If you haven’t seen the scene, here’s a quick refresh:
The internet quickly pounced on Harington’s reaction, turning it into a meme. Seeing him cry because of the scene may have been the scene everyone was actually waiting for in Game of Thrones‘ last season.

Watching Kit Harrington learn that Jon Snow is going to kill Dany is actually more emotional than watching Jon kill Dany pic.twitter.com/eWGoFDljP8— Laura Hudson (@laura_hudson) May 27, 2019

Note: Kit Harington did not read his script ahead of time, so this is him finding out for real. Sophie Turner obviously did, because LOOK AT THAT KNOWING SMIRK. Sansa knows what's up. pic.twitter.com/sVjKUi9Ye6
For some, the difference in reaction from the first to last reading served as an analogy for the entire season.
It just goes to show that Kit Harington is all of us in times of distress.
