Warning: Spoilers Ahead.
The second episode of Game of Thrones swept the nation for numerous reasons. Firstly, viewers were hit with a surprise sex scene by no other than Arya Stark, portrayed by Maisie Williams. The hilarious reactions were documented this week. As such, other key events include a singing performance by Tormund and the heartfelt crowning of female-warrior Breanne amongst other entertaining moments. Moreover, in a much-needed conversation between fierce dragon queen, Daenerys Targaryen and equally ambitious leader Sansa, a captured facial expression became the source of a now-viral meme.
The smiling Daenerys meme resulted from a brief joke made by the dragon queen with regards to boyfriend/nephew Jon Snow’s height. Its likeness, however, reminded many Twitter users of familiar day-to-day interactions we can all relate to. The face opened up a can of worms closely tied to passive-aggressiveness and subtle shade.
Leave it to Twitter to turn the simple facial expression into an ode to cunning and yet purposeful malice. The various quotes now coupled with the meme target everything from cooking abilities to a polite request to speak to management. Here are some of the gut-splitting memes with captions, though many more can be found by simply eyeing your Twitter feed.
