Game of Thrones Season 8 Premiere Ratings Are Highest Ever

Sophie Turner as Sansa Stark and Iwan Rheon as Ramsay Bolton in the infamous wedding night scene from Game of Thrones

Monday mornings are going to be all things Game of Thrones for the next few weeks.

Along with last night's return to Westeros comes a new Game of Thrones featurette, titled "Game Revealed", which appears to the first in a series of videos, and focuses on Winterfell.

Instead, there was a leisurely pace to its first episode that felt at odds with the end of the cataclysmic events of season 7, especially since there are only 5 more episodes left and there's so much ground to cover. Sansa Stark (Sophie Turner) was cold towards her new queen, Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke), and asked her brother Jon Snow (Kit Harington) if he had abdicated the throne for Daenerys out of a sense of duty towards his people or his love for the Mother of Dragons.

Since the seventh season ended in August 2017, fans have been waiting for the eighth season to either confirm or deny their theories. Who do you think will sit atop the Iron Throne once all is said and done?

Despite the fact that they've already wrapped up the shooting for season 8, the actor struggled to express into words exactly how he feels about the beloved show coming to an end: 'There is not a way of saying thank you to it enough.

The initial scenes of the episode seem nearly like the reboot of a late "90s sitcom". In this moment, it felt as if they returned to season one, before Jon was a king and Arya was a serial killer.

Game of Thrones featured a cameo from Rob McElhenney in its Season 8 premiere.

Daenerys is definitely not winning any popularity contests in the North, and Sam implores Jon to question her lack of mercy.

Based on the popular book series "A Song of Ice and Fire", by George R.R. Martin, the Emmy-winning fantasy series chronicles an epic struggle for power in a vast and violent kingdom. The series used to be subtle and unpredictable, but this episode is anything but - each glance, snarky comment and seemingly chance encounter is blatantly intentional and meant to be interpreted that way.

An emotional Kit is hardly surprising given the show's success and fans will be the same when the final episode airs. GoT season 8's first episode refreshed memories showcasing a Northern running through the crowd to catch a glimpse of the Unsullied, who accompanied Daenerys Targaryen and Jon Snow into Winterfell.
