Millions of peep around the world tuning in for the final episode, "Game of thrones" last night. Amy, you were one of them. Yes, yes. Such a devoted following. I am among them. It has grown so much over the past eight seasons, the highly anticipated series finale last night sending social media into a tailspin leaving some fans and me shocked. Star Emilia Clarke revealing this morning even she didn't see this ending coming. Overnight the only thing hotter than dragon's breath were the ratings. Millions of fans gathering around the globe with viewing parties galore bidding farewell to the iron throne.
