Eighth season for Game of Thrones

Culture A- A A+

Game Of Thrones returned for its eighth and final season on Monday morning after a nearly 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.

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."

According to The Sun, the new opener for the show - which has been running since 2011 - was a "heady mix of dark gags and breathtaking moments and helped the series opener to "live up to expectations", while Variety added the GoT writers have done something new this time around; "Hitting the accelerator and delivering major plot developments, hurriedly, in its home stretch."

"I feel like I personally have to remove myself," said the 21-year-old, "because I had a taste of that sort of fame with this show and I made a vow to myself: I do not want that.

"My agents say things to me like, 'We'll raise your profile', and I don't really understand what that means because to me it sounds like getting a whole lot more famous, which is something I'm not interested in.

"If this show is the greatest thing I ever do, I did OK. I didn't do too bad."
