However, while fans tweeted continuous spoilers for the show, they broke the internet with a variety of memes from the plot line where the character, Jon, finally learns the truth about his actual birth and royal status. Even some celebrities joined in with fun on last night season premiere like Reese Witherspoon, Kumail Nanjiani, Chrissy Teigen, The Jonas Brothers and of course, Sophie Turner, Peter Dinklage, Emilia Clarke, Kit Harington, and other members of the cast.
f you recall the Emmy Award winning series took an extremely long 2 year break between season seven and the last season.
