On the most recent episode of Game of Thrones, a long-awaited battle between two bastards—good boy Jon Snow and bad boy Ramsay Bolton—finally took place. One of those boys had a plan, but the other one … not so much. In fact, if you’re a nerd who remembers the 2000s, you might say Snow pulled a Leeroy Jenkins

All his poor teammates could do was run after him and try to save his fool ass, in spite of almost certain death.
