Another viewer said the premiere was “well done,” especially those reunions.
The reunion 8 seasons in the making was EVERYTHING that I could have hoped for — they literally mirrored S1's farewell and my sibling heart grew 2 sizes!!! Then a 3rd size when Arya stood up for Sansa. Well done #GameOfThrones pic.twitter.com/R5dBrzCEmr
