WATCH Game of Thrones Season 7 Episode 1 [S7E1] 2017
It’s been over a year since we last visited Westeros and with only seven episodes this time around, they’d better not waste any time.
The season opened with Frey, seeming alive and well, inviting his entire family for a feast. And then he poisoned them all, pulling off his face to reveal Arya underneath. The girl has learned the art of revenge, and she offered it every bit as bitter as Frey did in the first place.
While the hour was mostly setting the stage, the biggest breakthrough of the night came after Sam stole some books from the restricted section of the library (Hermione would be so proud). Dragon glass is the key to defeating the white walkers, and there’s a mountain of it in Westeros. A mountain that has sat abandoned and empty for years, but now has a new occupant.
