So...anyone else out there starting off Monday morning with frayed nerves, chewed-off fingernails, and an angry phone call to HBO Now on the agenda? Is it possible that HBO has joined forces with some evil pharmaceutical giant to make Game of Thrones viewers so stressed out and tightly wound that we have no choice but to pop Valium like Skittles? Or is that just the price we pay for good drama?

Last night's "Battle of the Bastards" had viewers fired up before it even began. HBO Now temporarily shut down, causing many a GoT devotee to rue the day they decided not to pay for cable. Once the ninth episode actually got underway, it was pure, agonizing bloodshed. The death count included some slavers, some Sons of the Harpy, Wun Wun, poor little Rickon Stark, and (yaaass) Ramsay Bolton. At least Tormund was spared, barely.

Naturally, Twitter lost its shit about all of it. Let's hear from the people.
