The "Game of Thrones" Season 4 finale answers many questions, but gives rise to more questions now that GOT Season 5 is about ten months away (again) from airing on HBO. On Twitter, two to three GOT tags are on and off the trending topics worldwide: #GameOfThronesfinale, Lady Stoneheart, and Valar Morghulis.

Spoiler alert: This feature contains spoilers on the Game of Thrones Season 4 finale, "The Children." Read at your own risk.
The following were some of the lingering questions among the Game of Thrones fans ahead of the Season 4 finale broadcast on HBO. The answers recap some of the highlights of GOT's action-packed fourth season ender.
What happens to Tyrion Lannister? Jaime comes through for Tyrion, and Lord Varys leaves the capital with him. For many, this finale is summed up in two sentences: Tyrion kills Shae. Tyrion kills Tywin. And that the Lannister children are badly broken.
Where are Daenerys Targaryen's dragons? The Mother of Dragons and Breaker of Chains gets ironic in the finale. However, who can blame her? She realizes she has to chain her "children" as they start going after human-children. It does not end there, though. One of Daeny's dragons is missing.
Is The Hound dying? A bounty hunter chews on his neck and infects his whole body. He was not in good shape the last time he's seen. In Game of Thrones Season 4 finale, he falls after an encounter with Brienne and Pod. He tells Arya Stark to pierce him through the heart, but the Braavos-bound cat refuses. No mercy for The Hound. He is dying, but it remains to be seen whether he actually dies.
Is Stannis Baratheon still relevant? Stannis and the Red Woman Melisandre make themselves count post Blackwater. They arrive at Castle Black after Jon Snow began his march to confront Mance Rayder. Stannis becomes even more relevant in Game of Thrones Season 5. He and Snow have a lot to discuss.
Does Lady Stoneheart show up in Game of Thrones Season 4 finale? No. Below are some trending reactions on Twitter with regards to the GOT 4 finale and Lady Stoneheart. (Share with us your insights, too, in the comments section below.)

To understand the Lady Stoneheart anticipation, GOT viewers have to read George R.R. Martin's book series, "A Song of Ice and Fire," on which HBO's Game of Thrones is based.
someone I was really hoping to see was Lady Stoneheart *DON'T Google,if you don't want SPOILERS* fans would go CRAZY! #GameOfThronesfinale — Aneth. (@calliipso) June 16, 2014
Arya Stark utters "Valar Morghulis," sending shivers down many avid fans' spines. It is about time.
