While some fans were excited on the reunion of brother and sister Jon Snow and Arya Stark, some others were shocked at the reunion of Jamie and Bran. Earlier in season 1, Jamie thought he had killed Bran after pushing up him from a high tower, sending him into illness. The look on Jamie’s face when he sees Bran, alive is, priceless.
Elsewhere, some users felt that the 60-minute episode went away so fast that it seemed like a 3o minute show. Let’s not forget that season 8 of Game of Thrones comes after the long wait of two years. Talking about the show and the cast, ahead of the broadcast, many stars including Emilia Clarke, Lena Headey, Sophie Turner and more celebrated the same by sharing behind-the-scenes photos and other tributes on their social media handles.
Emilia Clarke, aka Daenerys Targaryen, shared a photo of her while she was filming a dragon riding scene. She captioned the image as, “Me and my baby (dragon) (Drogon) just very excited for you all to see #season8gameofthrones which if I’m not mistaken begins….now.”
