Do I really need to add a SPOILER ALERT? Better safe than sorry, I guess.

Last night's episode of Game of Thrones (S4:E8) featured one of the most grusome confrontations in television history. During Tyrion's trial by combat, The Red Viper of Dorne had The Mountain down for the count. But his vengeful hubris allowed The Mountain one final attack, and cost Prince Oberyn not only a victory, but also his head. As with most things related to Game of Thrones, it was heartbreaking and awesome all at the same time.

At any rate, it didn't take the Internet long to react to the horrifying scene. Here are our favorite GIFs and reactions from around the web.

See. A Princess Bride reference. Not so obscure after all.

Sort of what Kate Beckensale said on Van Helsing, "If you have a chance to kill someone, kill them, don't just stand around talking about it". xD Ironically this happens a lot in the James Bond series . . . .

Well... that's one episode I'll be skipping when I re-watch it all. After yelling at him to quit pulling an "Inigo Montoya" and just finish him, I thought I was going to hurl! His lady's reaction is probably the most accurate look of pure shock and horror.
