Twitter Is Furious Sam Interrupted Gilly's Big 'Game of Thrones' Revelation

Sam interrupts her to complain about this useless transcription task, while "the secret to defeating the Night King is probably sitting on some dusty shelf somewhere, completely ignored!" Wah, wah, wah.

Twitter, of course, was not pleased with Sam breaking in on such important information, like Rhaegar Targaryen divorcing Elia Martell to marry Lyanna Stark, thus giving Jon Snow more of a claim to the Iron Throne than Daenerys. Face it, Sam—you f*cked up.
