A Recap of the Season 8 'GOT' Premiere, Entirely in Memes

By

This should go without saying, but SPOILER ALERT!

The first episode of Game of Thrones' final season finally premiered, and fans flocked to HBO, their friends'  HBO NOW accounts, and illegal streams online to watch. It did not disappoint: from awkward reunions (Bran and Jaime) and cheeky ones (Sansa and Tyrion), to Arya wryly downplaying the number of people she's killed, there were enough amazing moments in the episode to make fans feel like they were back in the swing of things after such a long break.

It definitely feels like winter is here and a great battle will soon take place. While one could recap the episode in text, why do that when it could be done so much better through memes?

Let's be honest, GOT fans create some of the best memes. Maybe it has to do with the fact that literally everyone watches it, so we've just got a bigger pool of meme excellence to cull from? Whatever the reason, they're just great.

1. People were howling at this Jon and Dany moment.

The awkwardness was palpable when Jon was smooching his Khaleesi Queen, and then, from the corner of his eye, he saw a dragon staring right at him.
