‘Game of Thrones’ Season 7 Premiere: The Most Satisfying Opening Scene of All Time!
WARNING: We’re about to freak out over everything that has just happened in Game of Thrones‘ seventh season premiere. If you do not want to be spoiled, leave now — but we suggest avoiding any route through Riverrun!
“Shall we begin?”
Those three words may have ended Sunday night’s season seven premiere of Game of Thrones, but we can’t think of a better way to kick off tonight’s recap of the most insane moments!
“Dragonstone” took us on a triumphant return home, introduced us to a surprise musical guest star, and brought together an unlikely potential alliance — but absolutely nothing could top the episode’s viciously satisfying cold open, courtesy of Arya Stark.
If you’ll recall, Arya Stark happily murdered Walder Frey and his two sons in GoT’s season six finale, so you can imagine our surprise when Sunday night’s episode began with a very alive-looking Walder Frey welcoming his guests to dinner.
We quickly realized that Arya was using her handy-dandy, identity-stealing assasin skills that she learned from the Faceless Men, as “Walder Frey” gathered up “every Frey who means a damn thing” into the same room and tricked them into drinking their doom.
As the Frey men began to violently vomit up blood, “Walder” gleefully taunted them over their mistake of not killing absolutely all of the Starks. “Leave one wolf alive, and the sheep are never safe,” he sneered.
Once the mass murder was complete, Arya calmly ripped off her Walder mask and turned to the lone handmaid whose life she had spared. “When people ask you what happened here, tell them, ‘The North remembers.’ Tell them, ‘Winter came for House Frey.'”
Damn, Arya! That was the most wonderfully cold-blooded thing we’ve ever seen in Westeros — and that’s including the time that Cersei had half her kingdom blown to bits with wildfire.
