As expected, season 8 began with a plethora of cathartic reunions and introductions that sent the Game of Thrones fandom into a frenzy. There were some expected meetups, Sansa Stark meeting Daenarys Targaryen for the first time, Arya meeting her supposed half-brother Jon Snow after 6 seasons, Jon meeting old friend Samwell Tarly.

In an extremely important scene from the first episode of Game of Thrones, Bran accidentally catches Jaime Lannister and his sister, Cersei, having sex in a tower at Winterfell.

That incident has now come back to haunt Jaime, which has led to the plethora of memes on Bran Stark.

Almost any smart statement can fit on his photo.

Here are some of them:
