Spoilers for Game of Thrones' Season 6 finale are below, so be warned.

If you were one of the millions of people who recently spent 70 minutes or so getting your last fix of Game of Thrones in 2016, then you are almost definitely still voicing your feelings and sharing your thoughts with friends. And while I'm sure you're a very astute person with some strikingly intelligent opinions, your reaction is not as good as the one that came from Netflix's upcoming Marvel action-drama Iron Fist, which you can check out below.

I could show that tweet to my grandmother and she would have absolutely no idea what it was referring to, what Twitter is, or why the strange bearded man is shoving a smartphone in her face. But there are plenty of other people who know exactly what that message means, and why it was a fantastically cheeky thing for the Iron Fist social media team to send out.

For Game of Thrones' "The Winds of Winter," Lena Headey's Cersei finally got her masterful revenge on her enemies within the Tyrell family, resulting in the death of one Ser Loras, as played by actor Finn Jones. When Iron Fist first began casting, Jones was cast as the titular hero, a.k.a. Danny Rand, who returns to New York City to avenge the death of his father years before. So with this simple and concise message, Iron Fist created a lovely little pop culture microcosm that will almost certainly inspire fan fiction blending the worlds of Westeros and Netflix's gritty NYC.

When Finn Jones was cast for Iron Fist, fans were quick to question the logistics of the actor being a part of two high-profile series like this. The actor wisely answered by saying that joining the comic book drama would not keep him from starring in future seasons of Game of Thrones, and he was absolutely right about that. If only someone had asked him if he had a death on Game of Thrones that would keep him from appearing later in the HBO fantasy drama. So close.

Something tells me Olenna Tyrell is going to have a little Iron Fist behavior going on when the show returns for Season 7 next year, as all eyes will be on Cersei with the intention of taking her down. Will we get to see Iron Fist make its MCU-expanding debut before then? We'll have to hope the series' social media account can stop mourning long enough to let us know. In the meantime, check out everything else coming to Netflix with our premiere schedule.
