PARAMUS, NJ—Saying they were still struggling to process what just happened, Game of Thrones viewers were reportedly reeling Sunday after the show’s season finale unexpectedly killed off a fan. “Holy shit, they decapitated some guy named Spencer Davenport from Dayton, Ohio,” said local woman Gaby Green of the brutally slain marketing specialist, whose bloody death in the final minute of the series’ gripping seventh season blindsided viewers across the country. “I should be ready for shocking deaths by now, but my jaw still fucking dropped when I saw that sword slice right through Spencer’s neck and his head crash to the floor of his studio apartment. I mean, Jesus. Well, at least it wasn’t Tyrion.” At press time, millions of viewers said they couldn’t wait for the eighth and final season of Game of Thrones to find out if they themselves lived through the series’ very last episode.
