The first episode gave us a lot. It was the episode of reunions and is a great set up for the rest of season eight. Unlike some episodes in season seven this episode actually gave us a lot of material from a lot of different characters.
Not a happy arrangement
Daenerys and Jon finally arrive in Winterfell and it is safe to say that the Northerners are not pleased with their new found arrangement. After the Umber boy asks for some help (I promise he’s important later on), Lady Mormont doesn’t waste any time and voices everyone’s concerns about the obvious shifts in power dynamics. After all, Jon left as King of the North but has now bend the knee to Daenerys. Someone they don’t know and don’t trust. We’ll have to wait and see if she’ll succeed in winning them over.
