We got Cersei doing what she’d always threatened to do: burning the city to the ground for her children.
We got Arya returning to Westeros to whip up some Frey pies.
And thanks to our new King in the North, we finally saw a Direwolf back on Winterfell during the opening credits.
HOWEVER, there was one thing that you might not have noticed from Sam’s storyline.
Between the explosions and naval fleets we saw Sam, Gilly, and not-so-baby Sam finally reach Oldtown. Conveniently they arrived at the EXACT moment that the Citadel released the white ravens that signify the official start of winter.
