Hey, um, I don’t know if you guys have heard, but GAME OF THRONES HAS RETURNED! HBO’s hit fantasy drama roared back into our lives on Sunday, and let’s just say that the season seven premiere does not disappoint. There’s drama, marriage proposals, and a crazy cameo, for starters, as well as a sick burn involving man buns (yes, really). While the episode ends with a lot still up in the air, there’s one thing we know for sure: this season is going to be an emotional roller coaster. See every important moment from the premiere ahead!
Warning: Major Game of Thrones spoilers ahead.
1. When It Starts Off With Walder Frey Giving a Speech in the Riverlands
Like . . . he definitely died . . . right?
2. . . And Then He Poisons All of His Men, and You Realize It’s Actually Arya in Disguise!
“Tell them Winter came for House Frey.”
3. When It Turns Out the White Walkers Have Their Very Own Wun Wun
Also, it looks like Bran is possibly able to warg into the White Walker’s giant.
4. When Bran and Meera FINALLY Make It to The Wall
After (maybe) warging into the giant wight, Bran and Meera arrive safe and sound (well, basically) at The Wall. Jon isn’t there, obviously, but they’re able to tell Eddison Tollett that they’ve seen the Night’s King.
5. When Bran Says the Night’s King “Is Coming; He’s Coming For All of Us”
After some of the men balk at Jon’s suggestion that women need to learn how to fight, too, Bear Island’s pint-size leader all but spits in their faces. “I don’t plan on knitting by the fire while men fight for me,” she retorts. “And I don’t need your permission to defend the North.” Right on, sister.
7. When Sansa Undermines Jon Snow in Front of the Other Lords in the North, and It Gets Awkward
It looks like the power struggle between them is going to be super real this season (which Littlefinger is clearly psyched about).
8. When Sansa Makes It Up to Jon by Paying Him the Ultimate Compliment
“You have to be smarter than Father,” Sansa says, while assuring him he’s a good ruler. “And you need to be smarter than Robb.”
9. . . But Then Jon Makes It Obvious He Still Doesn’t Respect Her Opinion
