Held less than two weeks before the much-awaited eighth and final series, the premiere screened the first episode – with actress Sophie Turner (who plays Sansa Stark) warning any viewers against spoilers.

Her co-star Maisie Williams – aka trained assassin Arya Stark – chimed in: “Remember what happened to the last person that f*** with us.”

For most TV shows, reuniting a bunch of actors who haven’t been part of the series for years wouldn’t be worth it – but then Game of Thrones is not most TV shows.

Seeing the likes of Sean Bean, Mark Addy and Jason Momoa alongside current stars Kit Harington, Emilia Clarke et al is absolute catnip for Thrones fans, and it’s not hard to see why.

At its heart, behind the spectacle, worldwide hysteria and ice zombies, Thrones is a story about families, so seeing this extended onscreen “family” reunited all these years later is bound to thrill, as well as remind fans just how far this story has come from the beginning – and just how far it still has to go in these final episodes.
