And also the Bran and Jaime reunion Less funny and more heart-warming was Jon and Arya’s long-awaited reunion They were also relieved that Jon finally found out the truth about his parents (and also that he’s having sex with his aunt) Of course, problems with streaming the episode did not go over wellAs excited as most fans were, some were worried about wrapping up all the storylines in just five more episodes

The premiere of Game of Thrones made me think “there is no way they can wrap this up in 5 more episodes.”
