After nearly a two-year wait, Game of Thrones triumphantly marched back into our lives on Sunday night. In the premiere of the final season titled “Winterfell,” we got numerous long-awaited reunions — some of which were tearful, others joyful and others vengeful. And this made for some incredible fodder to make funny Game of Thrones memes.
Jon Snow and his queen Daenerys Targaryen along with two dragons, an army of The Unsullied and a Dothraki horde descended upon Winterfell, but not everybody welcomed them with open arms. Jon Snow had a cold “welcome home” from Sansa Stark, Bran is acting like he just back from college and can’t be bothered by anyone because he’s way too smart now,
Euron Greyjoy had a romantic connection with Cersei after returning to King’s Landing with the Golden Company and then he laid on the charm and said he wanted to pump her full of a prince. Former husband and wife Sansa and Tyrion Lannister did not rekindle their relationship and the Lady of Winterfell told the imp that he isn’t smart anymore. Arya Stark and Gendry did some flirting with each other and she asked him for a special dragonglass weapon to forge, maybe to see if he’s interested or not.
Theon and Yara Greyjoy reconnected, which started off rocky, but then they were brother and sister again (Not the sibling connection like Jaime and Cersei). Jon Snow got his best bro back with Samwell Tarly. They were BFFs again until the moment Samwell told Jon that he’s Aegon Targaryen, the son of Rheagar Targaryen and Lyanna Stark. And that his love Daenerys is also his aunt.
And finally, Bran was waiting for an old friend… Jaime Lannister, who the last time he saw him, the Kingslayer attempted to murder him for being a peeping Tom who saw the Lannister siblings enjoying a very unholy union. The internet had plenty of material to work with and they did not disappoint despite being off for nearly two years. Here are the best and funniest Game of Thrones memes for Episode 1 of Season 8.
There was the bitter cold meeting between Sansa and Dany.
Dany’s dragons Drogon and Rhaegal realize that Jon Snow might be their new dad.
Cersei really wanted an army of elephants.
Cersei and Euron smashed.
There was Daenerys telling Samwell that she murdered his father… and his brother.
The Hound and Arya had a sentimental reunion.
Jon Snow being told by Sam that he is a king.
The Last Hearth kid getting strung up on a wall like a Michael Jordan poster.
Bran waiting for his attempted murderer, err, old friend. Also, can we build a ramp so Bran isn’t stuck in the Winterfell courtyard during the Army of the Dead invasion?
