On Game of Thrones, the Stark family has been through what can only be described as hell. They've endured brutal loss, the horrors of war, and perhaps the most difficult of all, separation. One of those separations -- that of Jon Snow and Arya Stark -- has been particularly difficult for fans. Despite being half siblings (as far as they knew), Jon and Arya had a special bond. Despite that bond the pair haven't seen one another since the series pilot and a lot has happened to both of them since then. However, in tonight's Season 8 premiere, Jon and Arya reunite -- and fans can't contain their joy.
Warning: spoilers for the Season 8 premiere of Game of Thrones below.
In tonight's season premiere, Jon Snow returns to Winterfell along with Daenerys Targaryen, having bent the knee to her and pledged House Stark in Season 7. Jon's return to Winterfell brings him back to siblings Sansa and Bran, bit initially Arya is nowhere to be found. Sansa even mentions that the younger sister is probably "lurking" somewhere nearby. It isn't too long later that her lurking comes to an end. Anya and Jon reunite under the Weirwood tree and while there's an awful lot going on -- namely Sansa's skepticism about Jon's allegiance to Daenerys -- the reunion between Arya and Jon is still full of sibling love, the two "outsiders" of the Stark family together again at long last.
It was a long-awaited reunion that left fans freaking out online. Many took to Twitter to share their emotional reactions, largely in GIF form, a reaction filled with tears, excitement, and even a few laughs.
