Game of Thrones Season 7 Recap: Episode 1 Roll-Call

Gather round, it’s time for Game of Thrones Roll-Call . *SPOILERS* ARE COMING.
First episode back of Game Of Thrones and it feels like the first day of class where you’re trying to remember everyone’s names. Time to see who’s here, who’s not and what the heck they’ve been up to whilst not being on our screens.

1. Ayra Stark - Definitely Present


We. Have. Arrived. Nothing like kicking off a new season with a bit of Leatherface fun and a goblet of red-hot justice. Anyone feeling Red Wedding déjà-vu vibes?

Q: Who picked up straight away that this was Arya? Or did you think Frey had ordered up a revival from everyone’s favourite mystic Melisandre?

2. The Night King – Present 

White Walkers

Breezing through the misty North is the Night King, his army of White Walkers (Yes! They’re back) and GIANTS. Multiple giants, you guys.

3. Bran Stark, Meera Reed & mate - Present


Bran rollin’ up to The Wall showing his crazy eye-roll party trick to prove who he is. Typical Bran, but it worked – Jon’s mate from the Night’s Watch is letting him in. (We’ll be honest with you; we know we’ve been seeing this guy for like 6 seasons now but we just can’t remember his name. We’ll just call him ‘Mate’ from now on.)

4. Jon Stark, Sansa Stark, Littlefinger & Ser Davos - Present

Littlefinger and Sansa

Just when things are looking for peachy for Jon in cosy Winterfell, Sansa steps in to remind him he knows nothing. The ‘sibling’ rivalry is real with these two. #TeamSansa

Jon Snows friend

5. Lyanna Mormont's sass - present


All we can say is, will we ever be worthy? #BleedNorth

6. Cersei Lannister & Jaime Lannister


The blonde siblings are back, and frothing leather.

Cersei’s been redecorating (Better Homes & Castles anyone?) and Jaime’s not a fan. He points out that they’re surrounded by enemies and it’s time for Cersei to play nice. She, of course, isn’t into it and declared war on everyone. Classic Cersei.

7. Euron Greyjoy aka Bachelor #3 - Present and thirsty


Euron has a fleet, two good hands (BURN, Jaime) and he *really* wants Cersei to know it. Jaime is not impressed and jealous.

The Mountain is also in attendance, but we’re too preoccupied with Euron’s promised gift for Cersei to care.

Q: What will Euron use to woo The Queen?
1. Tyrion’s head (please no)
2. Dany
3. More wildfire
4. Hair extensions (too soon?)

8. Sam Tarly, Gully & fluids - Present


Sam, we’ve been there. First day on the job and you’re already dealing with other peoples’ shit. Literally.

Q: Unanswered questions: Will Sam mix up the pans? Will he get to Jon in time with news of the Dragon Glass? How much did that heart weigh?!

9. Brienne of Tarth, Tormund & third wheeler (aka Podric) - Present


Sparks fly between our fave new couple. The will-they-wont-they of it all is divine torture. #Briemund4Life

10. Ed Sheeran - Present

Ed Sheeran

Ed’s in the house, singing a little ditty down by yonder riverbank because why not?! Will his latest ballad top the charts? Arya sure thinks so.

11. The Hound & The Brotherhood without banners - Present

The Hound

The Hound saying “topknot” = EVERYTHING!!!! Plus he reminded us he’s a total sweetheart, so there’s that too.

12. Daenerys Targaryen, Dragons & Squad - Present

Khaleesi on the beach

The Dragon Queen at last has a new home, a new war room and is ready to WERK. Her silence speaks volumes and even Tyrion is awestruck.

What will her first move be? She’s so close to Cersei, it’s making us nervous/gleeful/scared/PUMPED. So. Many. Emotions!



- Gendry (will we ever see your precious face again??)
- Melisandre of Asshai
- Theon Greyjoy & Yara Greyjoy
- The Sand Snakes
- Lady Olena
