Lyanna Mormont was a fan favorite from her first second of screen time on Game of Thrones. Introduced as the tough but diminutive leader of Bear Island, she was a child thrust into a position of power who rose to the occasion. In Season 8, Episode 3, she met her untimely end, to the distress of viewers everywhere. And these 9 Lyanna Mormont memes prove that Game of Thrones fans are still reeling over what happened.
Despite her youth, Lyanna was one of the strongest leaders in the North. She was never afraid to stand up for herself or her people, though it often meant calling Jon Snow out directly on his shortsighted decisions. She took her responsibilities seriously, which was why she rode out into battle with the rest of her forces in Episode 3. She ultimately gave her life to the war when she was crushed by the wight formerly known as Wun-Wun the giant. But before she went, she took him down with her by stabbing him in the eye. It was a supremely bad*ss moment, so it was totally on-brand for little Lyanna.
It was the kind of character death that hit fans right in the feels, too. Many viewers took to Twitter to express their grief over what happened, and it turns out there's no better way to get across one's mingled respect and heartbreak than a meme.
