(FASTNEWS|COLOMBO) – Game Of Thrones returned for its eighth and final season on Monday morning after a near two-year absence.
HBO aired episode one of the fantasy epic simultaneously in the US and UK.
Hardcore British fans had to stay up until 0200 BST to return to the Westeros winter for the first time since August 2017.
Secrets were revealed and families reunited as the battle for the Iron Throne intensified, with the ‘undead’ army inching ever closer.
While many battle-weary viewers were either heading back to bed, or off to work, journalists were busy filing their early reviews:
The Guardian, which declares “the end is now,” writes “the final series is off to a thrilling start, with reunions we’ve waited years for, a shocking new kill list – and even a homage to the show’s own ‘sexposition'”
We’ll let you figure that one out for yourselves.
The Telegraph, meanwhile, sums it up as “Winterfell: Sex, reunions, and a glimpse of the carnage to come.”
