‘Game Of Thrones’ Premiere Confirms Huge Rumors About Season 7

Game of Thrones Season 6 ended over a year ago, and weve been waiting for new episodes ever since.

We watched blocks of ice melt to learn the premiere date (during a Facebook Live stream which cut out multiple times), but now thats all in the past.Season 7 has arrived.Winter is here.

There were plenty of surprising scenes during the first episode (uh, Ed Sheeran showing up out of nowhere to debut some hot new tracks comes to mind), but nothing topped the opening.

For a while now theres been a rumor that Arya (Maisie Williams) wasnt done avenging the Red Wedding. Though the young assassin killed Walder Frey (David Bradley) and his sons in the Season 6 finale, the word was she would don Walders face in Season 7 and finish off the other Freys.

Thats exactly what happened, and people lost it.

Arya slays the Freys.


In the opening moments of the episode, Arya Stark shows up at a banquet wearing Walder Freys face. Then, she makes an epic speech while poisoning the rest of the Frey men, saying lines like, When you leave one wolf alive, the sheep are never safe, and, The North remembers.

It was very baller. Arya is very baller.

Here are the other big moments from the premiere …

Euron gives Cersei a proposal.


Remember Euron Greyjoy (Pilou Asbk)?

He showed up in Season 6, killed Balon Greyjoy (Patrick Malahide) and ended up becoming the leader of the Ironborn.

Well, now hes back and asking Cersei (Lena Headey) for her hand in marriage, confirming the rumor that hed be teaming up with the Lannisters.

Will he marry Cersei? Meh, who knows? He promised her a gift, though, so this is to be continued.

Bran reaches the Wall, and now it may be coming down.


Its a Bran-new day for the youngest Stark left alive.

Bran (Isaac Hempstead Wright) finally makes it to the Wall in the Season 7 premiere and convinces the Nights Watch to let him pass.

Why is this a big moment?

Remember that Bran was marked by the Nights King in Season 6 of the show. This allowed the Nights King to get past the magical protections on the Three-Eyed Ravens cave, and many theorize that when Bran crosses the Wall, itll take magical protections off that, too.

Arya tells Ed Sheeran shes going to kill the queen.

OK, what the hell is going on here?

Ed Sheeran shows up in what looks like Lannister gear, sings a song, and Aryas all like, Yo, that was dope.


Arya saves the rando moment by saying shes headed to Kings Landing to kill the queen. Everyone has a good laugh.

If the scene continued, were 100 percent sure Sheeran would start singing about a castle on the hill.

The Hound sees a vision in the flames.


Beric Dondarrion (Richard Dormer) and Thoros of Myr (Paul Kaye) show the Hound (Rory McCann) exactly why the Lord of Light chose them. While looking into the flames of a fire at the home of a family he seemingly robbed before the Hound sees a vision, including a mountain, it looks like an arrowhead, the dead are walking past.

Jorah meets Sam.


Fulfilling yet another rumor, Sam Tarly (John Bradley) comes across Jorah Mormont (Iain Glen) apparently in a cell in Oldtown. You pretty much just see his arm, but Jorahs looking pretty rough thanks to that Greyscale. Well see if Sam ends up helping him.

Other than that, Sams having a pretty crappy time at the Citadel, literally cleaning up crap. But then, Sam goes all Harry Potter and steals keys to sneak into the restricted section of the library. There, he discovers theres a bunch of dragonglass under Dragonstone.

That could be pretty useful when it comes to taking on the White Walkers.

Dany makes it to Westeros.


Dany (Emilia Clarke) has arrived!

The Mother of Dragons finally makes it to Westeros and arrives at the Targaryen ancestral home of Dragonstone. Theres not a whole lot that happens here except Danys all like, Shall we begin?

(She means shall we begin taking over the world, basically.)

The White Walkers have giants.

Winter is here, and so are giants in the White Walker army. Theyre not at the Wall yet, but the scene just serves as a reminder that shiz is going down and Season 7 is on!
