Ned Stark said this day would come…

It has felt like a lifetime, but fans everywhere can now breathe a long (and, of course, cold) sigh of relief, as Game of Thrones returned to our screens with a brand new season last night. Winter is officially here!

Buzz has been at a fever pitch ever since revelations in Season Six’s finale and, now with winter’s arrival, the stratosphere is rife with fan speculation. 

We can neither confirm nor deny any of these, but if one thing’s for certain, with a new King in the North, a new Queen upon the Iron Throne and the Mother of Dragons bound for Westeros, we’re all in for one seriously epic ride!

Don’t miss Season Seven of Game of Thrones every Monday at 9pm on Sky Atlantic.
