Game of Thrones aired its season 7 finale on Monday in the UAE. It was the most-watched episode in the series’ history with 16.5 million viewers tuning in.

With fans now having to wait 18 months until the eighth and final season, we round-up our favourite tweets that are pretty on point with how we felt about the season finale.

However, beware of spoilers if you haven’t watched the episode yet.

That moment early in the episode when Jon Snow tries to explain to Cersei Lannister the importance of coming together to defeat the White Walkers while Euron Greyjoy instead comes up with the perfect solution on how to save himself:

That feeling we had when Sansa and the rest of the Stark children finally get the upper hand on Lord Baelish:

The moment Jamie Lannister leaves behind Cersei and King’s Landing and rides North to help in the fight against the White Walkers:

When we learnt that Jon Snow’s true identity meant that he was the rightful heir to the Iron Throne:

When we finally saw two of our favourite characters get together - only to simultaneously have it kind of ruined too:

When we just all wanted to know if our favourite wildling, Tormund, survived after The Night King turned it up way too many notches to destroy the Wall:

When we realized that all the remaining Stark children survived this season (yay):

Of course once the episode ended, we were left with the sudden void knowing that it could be two years until season 8 appears back on our televisions:

With that much time, we have some requests including a plead to the leaders of the world to please just wait until the last season finishes to start anything:

We don't want to pull a Tommen but if we have to wait until 2019, well, who knows...

Although there isn't really much we can do. As one Twitter user put it: "Now our wait begins":
