Game of Thrones Memes

Season 5: Dance of Dragons

How to train your drogon mock poster game of thrones

This season has been light on quality memes, even last week’s episode “Hardhome” only produced a smattering, and given that it seems HBO had no budget left for any quality posters, or branding, etc… (that all seems to have been spent getting HBO:Now up & running) it really hasn’t been a good year for it. Plus this season, as complicated and problematic as it has been seems more rife for producing controversy over memes.

Yet last night watching along, and second screening the laugh factory that was Twitter’s #DemThrones had some moments approaching what it used to have. The episode for me (as a book reader) felt overly wrought. Putting aside the scandal created in the fandom over Shireen’s untimely & gruesome death, it just felt weird to have that & then immediately launch into the Drogon scene that is sorta like the one in the books, but done more cinematically.

Even though I’ve not featured any meme collections this season, was sorta waiting for there to be something worth gathering. Last night’s episode seemed to have crowdsourced, through the right amount of revulsion and elation, a fair amount. I’ve included some at the end that are from other episodes throughout the season that I’ve collected.

While I had some qualms about both the fight choreography (during the fighting pit & Harpy attack) and the CGI was kinda lame (making everyone think of the 1980s Neverending Story) it does look much better as a gif, so here is a collection of them during the pivotal scene:
