    The Internet Is Thirsting Over The Darkling From "Shadow And Bone," And I Need A Cold Drink Of Water, Y'all

    "The Darkling has me in shackles."

    The long-awaited TV show Shadow and Bone hit Netflix this weekend, and whew! What a ride that was. After binge-watching the whole season, I was left with one feeling: thirst for The Darkling.

    Apparently, I was not alone in my adoration! The internet is ABLAZE with Darkling love. So here are all the best tweets about our favorite Shadow Summoner:
