The stage is set for the great war to come. The opening episode features no battles, no large set-pieces of the sort the show has become renowned for, yet it is so engaging and unique that it once again reminds us that Game of thrones makers have the ability to shock and surprise us. As Cersei counts all her enemies from each direction, Euron joins the Mad queen in search of revenge. Jon rallies the north against the White walkers, as Arya sets off south to strike another name of her list. The episode ends with Daenerys reaching her home DragonStone, its beautiful how she says nothing the entire time and ends this mesmerising episode with one question "Shall we begin?" So as to signal the epicness this season is going to be!
