While a third chimed in: "Actually shed tears at Marc's departure. GBBO."
Another viewer questioned the timing of the episode's technical challenge by posting an article by Bake Off judge Paul Hollywood about a Sussex Pond Pudding that recommended a three-hour preparation time.
The post referenced the fact that bakers had been asked to make a 17th-century steamed pudding for the technical task, but were only given a 1.5 hour time slot.
The fan wrote: "Even Paul Hollywood advises three hour steaming! Who approved of one and half hours only? #SetUp.
"The bakers worked miracles," they added.
Marc went on to repost the Instastory to his 19,300 Instagram - which seems to indicate that he agrees with the viewers' point.
The baker has penned a public letter about his time on Bake Off, calling it "just the most crazy, intense, wonderful, once in a lifetime experience".
We don't know about you, but we're emotional wrecks.
