The Guardian has said season 8, episode 1 is a "thrilling start, with reunions we’ve waited years for and a shocking new kill list." The Guardian review said: "This was a thrilling episode with its pedal to the floor, in which new alliances were made, old ones tested and long-awaited reunions occurred."

In a review from The Sun, it says: "Fans will not be disappointed by the hotly anticipated opener to the eighth and last series – but just how the show's bosses will tie up the epic tale in just six episodes is baffling.

"The opener was surprisingly comedic – with deadpan gags littered throughout the episode. But as with previous series, it’s the darkness not the light that will have even the most avid viewer on the edge of their seat. The second half of the episode in particular had several hold your breath moments." The Sun rated the episode a 4/5.

There is a Game of Thrones spoiler free review on The Telegraph. It says Winterfell "dives headlong into the action."

"The gruesome Lannister-Greyjoy coupling helps crank up the sex quota in an episode otherwise struggling to reach anything like the show’s previous levels of fornication and death." The Telegraph also rates the episode a 4/5.
