'Game of Thrones': 7 best moments of season 7 premiere – CNET

Warning: Spoilers for the “Game of Thrones” premiere ahead.

Winter is here, and it’s everything fans have been waiting for.

Game of Thrones” returned to HBO Sunday night with its season-seven premiere, and it didn’t disappoint. Here come the spoilers.

The episode had action (multiple Stark-revenging deaths in the cold open), humor, Jaime with some fire in his belly, a suddenly sympathetic Hound, and Little Lady Mormont standing up for the women of Westeros. 

Here are 7 great moments from “Dragonstone,” the season-seven premiere.

Arya avenges the Red Wedding

Cheers to Arya Stark and her wine-soaked revenge.

Killing Walder Frey after feeding him two of his sons wasn’t enough revenge for the horrific wedding that killed Catelyn Stark, King Robb, his pregnant wife, and many others. Arya (disguised as Walder) gathered the rest of the Frey supporters in a room and gave them all wine, which we knew was poisoned even before she stopped the servant girl from imbibing. Guess what? It was one of those nasty Westeros poison wines, and soon the men were upchucking their Two-Buck Chuck and what appeared to be their own guts. Cat and Robb, you were avenged.

Best lines: Arya to the servant girl: “When people ask you what happened here, tell them the North remembers. Tell them winter came for House Frey.” 

2. Big surprise

Jon Snow, I think you have a giant problem.

Who do the undead White Walkers now have on their side? Wun Wun, the awesome giant, now zombified, still missing his eye that Ramsay Bolton shot out! Wun Wun, nooooo! And also, whoaaaaa! This is a great little storyline, as sad as it may make fans feel.

Best lines: No lines, just a picture painting a thousand words.

3. Lady Mormont won’t stick to her knitting

Littlefinger is always creepily hanging around, even when Lady Lyanna Mormont is making her point.

Women usually follow traditional roles in “Game of Thrones,” though Brienne of Tarth and Arya have shown the females of the show can fight with the best of them. So when Jon announced that both genders would be called to arms, it was tough preteen Lady Lyanna Mormont who shot down any disagreement, announcing that House Mormont will train all of their people, men, women, boys and girls alike. Look, the White Walkers aren’t going to let a woman or girl live just because she doesn’t know how to defend herself.

Best line: Lady Lyanna to Jon and his men: “I don’t plan on knitting by the fire while men fight for me.” 

4. Jaime and Cersei hash it out

Jaime reminds Cersei that the Lannisters pretty much have no friends and allies.

Have we ever seen Jaime speak this frankly to his twin and lover Cersei, the woman for whom he pushed Bran out a window? He lays out the enormous odds against the Lannisters, then asks her what they’re even fighting for now that they’ve lost all of their children (not sure he was sold on her “a dynasty for us” line). And when Cersei snaps that she’s the queen of the seven kingdoms, he corrects her: “Three kingdoms at best.” He even gets her to discuss Tommen’s suicide — “he betrayed me,” Tommen’s mother responds. Ouch. Jaime’s a helluva fighter, but it’s clear he doesn’t share his twin’s hunger for power.

Best lines: Jaime: The Greyjoys? You invited the Greyjoys to King’s Landing.
Cersei: Well, not all of them
Jaime, staring at the massive fleet: Well, it looks like all of them.

5. Euron Greyjoy makes his
