Game of Thrones fans in tears over emotional season 8 reunions

There's been a lot of pressure riding on Game of Thrones season 8.

HBO kept fans waiting two long years between series – and so expectations were high for episode one. But did writer Dave Hill deliver?

Of course he did!

The opening Game of Thrones season 8 episode was jam-packed with emotional reunions; Jon Snow was back in Winterfell with his Stark Siblings, he was also reunited with Sam Tarly, meanwhile, Gendry and Arya came face-to-face for the first time in years, and Bran had an interesting stare out with Jaime Lannister – the man responsible for putting him in a wheelchair.

There was a lot to get through but every single one of those meetings met viewers' expectations.

In fact, the emotional scenes were so well written and executed that some viewers were left in tears afterwards.

"One of the best scene i’ve been waiting for this #GameofThrones," wrote one.

Another added: "Holy mother of god! Tears, goosebumps, shock , anger.. #GameofThrones you give me all the possible feelings in this goddamn world ! Oh my more wine! A girl is gonna watch the episode again and again until the next episode!"

Moments later, a third posted: "We waited seven seasons to see arya with jon once again and I’ll lie to you if I say I didn’t start crying #GameOfThrones."

A fourth commented: "This moment was all I was waiting for. My heart is so happy, I can't stop crying #GameofThrones #ForTheThrone."

While the episode was of course action-packed, the biggest talking point was the show's ending; Jaime and Bran's reunion.

These two characters haven't seen each other since Bran caught Jaime canoodling with his sister Cersei (I know) during a visit to Winterfell.

In a desperate bid to prevent their secret getting out, Jaime pushed Bran out of a tower, which left the boy crippled.

Following the fall, Bran couldn't remember what happened and was convinced he accidentally tripped while climbing.

However, since then, he's developed abilities as a greenseer, meaning he can now see into the past, present and future, and so it's almost certain he knows what Jaime did.

Does this mean Bran will now want revenge?

I’m seeing a lot of people (hilariously) tweeting about Bran/Jamie but I don’t get a sense from Bran that it was a revenge thing. Maybe I’m totally wrong. #GameofThrones

Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, who plays Jaime, hinted to Digital Spy there's a big storyline on the horizon between these two: "This is a pay-off to episode one of season one, but there will be more in the show this season. I think that’s really cool because it’s a story; it’s all been one story. It’s just taken a long time to tell it."

However, while there may be unfinished business between Jaime and Bran, the pair have much bigger problems on their hands right now.

The White Walkers and the Army of the Dead have ploughed through the wall and are making their way south – next stop, Winterfell.

It's expected many of the show's iconic characters will be killed off during the Battle of Winterfell.

According to the rumour mill, this will be taking place in episode three – so treasure every moment with your Game of Thrones favourites while you can because it's going to be brutal.

Game of Thrones episode two will air on Sky Atlantic and Now TV on Monday, April 22.
