Another show follower reminisced about Daenerys Targaryen's (Emilia Clarke) transformation throughout the show's seasons. She started as a young innocent girl sold by her own brother as a slave and became a strong and courageous woman whom people call the Mother of Dragons.

Meanwhile, another fan shared a melancholic tribute to the Stark family. The fan responded with a collage of photos from when the Stark family was still complete. Jon Snow, believe to be Eddard Stark's bastard son, is also in the photo. Game of Thrones Season 7 confirmed fans long-held theory that Jon is actually a Targaryen. He is the son of Lyanna Stark and Rhaegar Targaryen.

Of course, fans did not forget the epic battle scenes in the show. These include the Battle of the Bastards from Game of Thrones Season 6, wherein one fan called it the "best battle" ever. Then there is the Battle of the Blackwater and the Season 7 finale when the Night Walkers and the Night King toppled The Wall. Another thought the Hound's quest to eat all the chickens in Season 4 episode 1 was epic. Then there is Daenerys uttering her famous dragon command "Dracarys" and her first time to command the Unsullied.

Likewise, who could forget King Joffrey's death from poisoning at the purple wedding? There are also those who found the brutal Red Wedding their favorite moment in Game of Thrones. The tragic episode saw Catelyn Stark and her son Robb murdered.
Game of Thrones is on its last season when it returns to HBO in 2019. The showrunners and the cast have remained tight-lipped on spoilers. The network also has yet to announce the premiere date of Season 8.
