Warning. This article contains spoilers from the first episode of Game of Thrones season eight, if you haven’t yet watched it, then this probably isn’t the place for you…

Finally Game of Thrones is back in our lives. Don’t get too used to it though, after the season premiere, which was essentially just one big setup for what lies ahead, we’ve only got five episodes left.

Still, let’s not focus on the negatives, and let’s enjoy it whilst we can. The theme for the first episode was most definitely reunions, and there was a hell of a lot of them.

Tyrion and Sansa had some husband and wife banter, Arya and Gendry got a little flirty, if that’s what you want to call it, and the ending with Jaimie and Bran was brilliant. For many of us, though, the one we enjoyed most was the reunion between Jon and Arya. The two haven’t seen each other since episode two, when Jon gave Arya his beloved sword Needle. Wow, that feels a lifetime ago.


They teased us at first, with Jon not immediately spotting Arya, much to her disappointment, but their reunion eventually happened in the Godswood of Winterfell, where they shared this lovely embrace.


Fans loved it…


It wasn’t all happy families though. After their initial catch up Jon later told Arya how he could have done with her help when trying to get his way with Sansa. Jon was clearly expecting Arya to side with him, but instead she chose to defend Sansa, calling her the ‘smartest person’ she knows. Still, they hugged it out, and we can enjoy the fact that the family, or what’s left of them, are reunited at last.


Who do you think will end up on the Iron Throne?
