Game of Thrones returned to HBO for the premiere of its eighth and final season Sunday night. And it is without surprise the show based off of George R.R. Martin’s fantasy novels A Song of Ice and Fire was the hottest topic on Twitter (and still blazing). The episode had more more than its share of tweetable moments with pithy one liners from Cersei and at least half-an-hour worths of blank stares from Bran, setting social media ablaze. But nothing quite captured Black Twitter than Jon Snow’s return to Winterfell. That’s because he brought all the foreigners home: Daenerys, her dragons, The Unsullied, and the Dothraki. The North was visibly in their feelings when they saw our sis Missandei and Grey Worm riding horseback and Black Twitter was not going to let that slide. #DemThrones
Peep some of the best tweets from the unforgettable moment below.
What could this mean for Missandei and Grey Worm moving forward in the final season? Judging by the Northerners immediate disdain for any individual who isn’t from the snow-covered region, race may not play as critical a role. Regardless, there’s no telling what will happen to some of our favorite characters (i.e. red wedding) over the course of the final five episodes but trust Black Twitter stays ready. Game of Thrones airs Sunday nights at 6/9 p.m. EST on HBO.
