Game of Thrones

Winter is here! The final season of Game of Thrones is upon us and I haven’t been this excited about a TV event since Negan bashed some skulls in.

Spoilers ahead!

Game of Thrones characters

The first episode of Season 8, “Winterfell,” was full of highly-anticipated reunions, tension, and even some humor, which I loved. It was a strong call-back to the very first ever episode of Game of Thrones, as we see Jon & Dany riding into Winterfell, just as King Baratheon et al did years ago.

Best quotes from Game of Thrones Season 8, Episode 1

Sansa: “What do dragons eat, anyway?”
Dany: (Throwing serious shade.) “Whatever they want.”

Tyrion: “A miserable affair.” (In reference to Joffrey’s wedding.)
Sansa: “It had its moments.”

The Hound: “You’re a cold little bitch aren’t you? Guess that’s why you’re still alive.” (To Arya.)

Arya: “You used to be taller.” (To Jon. C’mon now, it’s not nice to tease little Jon. But this was really a nice reference to how much Arya has grown, and in more ways than just height.)

Sansa: “I used to think you were the cleverest man alive.” (Ouch. Is Tyrion off his game, or does he have a plan?)

Tyrion: “Our queen respects the wisdom of age.”
Varys: “Of course she does. Respect is how the young keep us at a distance, so we don’t remind them of an unpleasant truth.”
Tyrion: “What’s that?”
Varys: “Nothing lasts.”
