Out of the countless things fans had been waiting to see in the premiere of Game of Thrones' final season, reunions between favorite characters were at the top of many people's lists. And really, the whole episode gave us just that. Spoilers ahead for anyone who did not watch tonight's show.
Beyond the craziness of Samwell Tarly telling Jon Snow of his true parentage, and Cersei Lannister and Euron Greyjoy having sex (ew!), fans were pleased to see so many of their favs coming together, for better or worse. Here are all the major reunions you need to know about from the first episode.
The most innocent scenes in tonight's premiere without a doubt go to the Stark kids all reuniting again. While Jon and Sansa hadn't been apart for long, Jon did reunite with Bran and Arya for the first time since Season 1. Although Bran's since-found Three-Eyed-Raven identity keeps him from showing emotion, Jon giving him a kiss on the forehead was adorable enough.
Missandei and Grey Worm.
While the two are minor characters in the grand scheme of things, Missandei and Grey Worm are still a fan-favorite couple, one whose relationship was at stake last season as the Unsullied went off to Casterly Rock. However, the army returned safe and sound, and the two lovers were back together in tonight's episode.
Sansa Stark and Tyrion Lannister.
As Tyrion arrived at Winterfell, he reunited with Sansa, revealing the last time they had spoken was at Joffrey's wedding back in Season 4 (You know, the episode where the king is poisoned). Though Sansa and her former husband have been through a lot over the seasons, they've proved they're on good terms once again, however Sansa was quick to warm him he shouldn't be so trusting of his sister Cersei.
Arya Stark and The Hound.
We hadn't seen Arya and The Hound together since Season 4, when the young assassin left him for dead. Tonight, the two reunited, and although it wasn't violent in the slightest, they did have a solid back and fourth of verbal sparring. The Hound calling Arya a "cold little b***h" might be my favorite line of the whole episode.
Arya Stark and Gendry.
Arya also saw Gendry around the same time as the Hound, giving fans something they've been wanting for years. Last time we saw Gendry and Arya together, the former decided to stay with the Brotherhood in Season 3, only to be sold to Melisandre. While Arya was angry with him for not staying with her, we're sure they'll be close again this season. Many fans are even hoping for a romance between the two, with theories to backup the possibility.
Jon Snow and Samwell Tarly.
The heartwarming reunion between close friends Jon and Sam was sadly short-lived, as the latter jumped right to the point and revealed that the man who believed all his life he was a bastard is actually the true heir to the throne.
Jaime Lannister and Bran Stark.
The most satisfying moment of the Season 8 premiere might go to the ending, which saw Bran awaiting a mysterious arrival to Winterfell, turning out to be Jaime, a.k.a. the man who pushed him out a window and caused him to be paralyzed for the rest of his life. We're so ready for their first real conversation.
