See viewers' pained reactions to that 'Game of Thrones' final scene

The season five finale of the hit HBO fantasy series was particularly brutal. These two reaction videos show how the horrible final scene played out for some fans.


Warning: When you read this post on the "Game of Thrones," you win or your viewing experience gets spoiled. Only read on and watch the videos if you've seen all 50 episodes. Also, there's some NSFW language in both, so watch at your own discretion.

Like many of you out there, I'm still trying to process everything that happened on Sunday's epic finale for the fifth season of "Game of Thrones." The ending, which sees a major character meet his violent demise, was particularly jarring, and it seems I was far from alone in feeling that.

A few videos uploaded to YouTube on Monday show exactly what it was like to watch that final scene unfold. In the first clip, viewers gather at The Burlington bar in Chicago, as they do every week, and a cameraman captures the gasps and groans as Jon Snow gets betrayed by members of the Night's Watch.

For the other video, several people upload their own reaction clips to the horrific scene, complete with women crying and f-bombs being thrown pretty frequently as Jon Snow fans try to make sense of his death. It's a death that will never really make sense and (maybe?) brings to an end several fan theories of how the "Game of Thrones" will play out.
