Fans are enthusiastically Tweeting following Sunday’s episode.

Sunday’s “Game Of Thrones” predictably fueled a plethora of conversations on Twitter. In a testament to the volume of discussion, “Game Of Thrones” is currently responsible for the Top 19 worldwide trending topics (at least).

What specific words, phrases or hashtags are trending? We’ll answer that question below. While we won’t directly discuss any storylines from the episode, be aware that the specific trending topics may themselves be spoilers.

The #1 trend as of press time at 11:35PM ET Sunday is “#GameOfThrones.” “Arya” is currently the #2 trend, ahead of “Battle Of Winterfell” (#3).

The misspelled “#GamefThrones” is #4, while “Bran” follows at #5. “Cersei” (#6), “Theon” (#7), “Night King” (#8), “#GOTS8E3” (#9), and “Battle For Winterfell” (#10) complete the Top 10.

Other trending topics include “Lyanna” (#11), “Lady Mormont” (#12), “Ghost” (#13), “Melisandre” (#14), “Jorah” (#15), “Dothraki” (#16), “God Of Death” (#17), “Drogon” (#18), and the misspelled “Aria” (#19).

Following two episodes of “setup,” Sunday’s episode was obviously going to represent the first action-oriented episode of the final season. It will be interesting to see what effect that inevitability had on the viewership ratings.
