~*Extremely mild spoilers for the season seven premiere of Game of Thrones below*~
Though much happened in the opening episode of this year's Game of Thrones season, fans took to social media to notice one thing in particular.
Yes, there was the requisite "Is that... Ed Sheeran on screen?" comment. (Yes, he was.)
At some point in the season I hope Ed Sheeran meets Bran and tells him "When your legs don't work like they used to before"- Manta Rays Children (@868ball_is_life) July 17, 2017
There were also some freak outs over new appearances reappearances from some previously AWOL characters, as all of Westeros creaks closer to winter reckoning. Euron Greyjoy's new dirtbag band leader look really brought out the jokes:

Euron Greyjoy looks like that guy that got kicked out of a band 30 years ago and hasn't gotten over it #GameOfThones- ceej ayoub (@AyoubChrissy) July 17, 2017

But it's the Hound's welcome return in particular that brought about much mirth on social media. Namely, his line about... man buns? Or as he refers to one poor man's hair: "You're not fooling anyone with that top knot."
Cue the Brooklyn hipster jokes (and one excellent "Bad and Boujee" reference):
