The finale episode of Game of Thrones Season 7, specifically on the Dragon Pit scene, stirred a lot of emotions as we witnessed first-time encounters of characters from across the HBO fantasy series' seven seasons—remember the look on Cersei’s face when she saw Daenerys and her dragons? Or what about the reunion of our Blackwater squad Tyrion, Bronn, and Pod? It’s moments like these that make Game of Thrones worth the wait.
You can’t predict a character’s fate in Game of Thrones, so any reunion is worth a dramatic reaction. We’ve picked the top reunions we want to see and hold our seats for:
Tyrion Lannister and Sansa Stark
Last seen together: Season 4, Ep. 2 The Lion and the Rose.
Sansa was married to Tyrion for a good time in Season 4.The last time they were both together was during the ever-satisfying Purple Wedding. Both were accused of Joffrey's death, Sansa escaped King's Landing through Little Finger, and Tyrion was wrongly accused of the murder. But despite this, there is no bad blood between the two.
Tyrion is now serving as hand to Daenerys, and Sansa as the lady of Winterfell, they could prove solid allies to the mother of dragons. What will ever happen to their marriage?
Bran Stark and Jaime Lannister
Last seen together: Pilot Episode, Winter is Coming
Central characters Jaime and Bran were last (and only) seen together where it all began—the pilot episode—specifically in the Winterfell tower where Jaime tossed Bran from the tower after discovering his affair with his sister. This led to cause Bran’s inability to walk and awakened his greensight that led him to be the Three-Eyed Raven.
With Jaime heading north, we’re excited to witness the reunion. Will Bran hold a grudge? Or is he far into the Three-Eyed Raven role and give Jaime the free pass for acting out of “love.” Or perhaps Bran will see Jaime for the hero he is, apart from being the King Slayer maybe being a Queen Slayer will earn him heroic points.
Sandor Clegane (The Hound) and The Stark Sisters
Last seen together:
The Hound and Sansa - Season 2 Episode 9, Battle of Blackwater
The Hound and Arya - Season 4 Episode 10, The Children
The Hound has played significant roles in the survival of Sansa and Arya—separately.
Despite being part of the antagonist crew on the early seasons, The Hound’s noteworthy moments were when he saved Sansa from being raped in season two, and when he was Arya’s companion throughout seasons three and four.
The reunion between The Hound and the Stark sisters would not require grand gestures, but we’re expecting subtle hints of pride from The Hound seeing how the girls have grown to be the strong(er) women they are now this season. Maybe The Hound and Arya might discuss over plates of mutton pie how Arya left him to die, that’s something we would happy-cry about.
Sandor Clegane (The Hound) and Gregor Clegane (The Mountain)
Last seen together: Season 7 finale, The Dragon and the Wolf
The Clegane Bowl may be a fan theory that hypes up the two brothers. But it's a theory we're betting on happening, the two have been at each other’s throats since childhood.
Last seen during the Dragon Pit encounter between the Lannisters and the Targaryen army, the Clegane siblings had a tense stare down during the Dragonpit parley in King’s Landing. “What they did to you doesn’t matter,” Sandor told the new zombified version of his older brother.
Clegane Bowl or not, putting The Hound up against his monstrous brother who literally scarred The Hound as a child is a fitting end to The Mountain’s monstrous character arc.
Daenerys and Viserion
Last seen together: Season 7, Episode 6 Beyond The Wall
If an epic battle like "A Dance of Dragons" will happen this season, we’re looking forward to seeing Viserion’s blue flame against his brothers and mother’s dragon fire.
With Daenerys onboard Drogon, and the Night King on Viserion, will Jon ever be able to ride aboard Rhaegal—the dragon named after his father?
But the most important question is, will Daenerys have the heart to take down Viserion? Or would her hesitation-slash-motherly instinct be her downfall?
Bran and Jon Snow Reunion
Last seen together: Season 1 Ep. 2 The Kingsroad.
Any Stark reunion is bound to bring us tears adding they will have all reunited when Winter has finally come. But Jon and Bran's reunion is one that probably stirs the most emotions, not just from the audience but from everyone involved in the Game of Thrones, too.
With Bran's knowledge on Jon Snow's secret parentage, and Samwell Tarly expected to bring a piece of the puzzle for everything to make sense—putting finality to the statement "you know nothing, Jon Snow."
Jon Snow and Arya Stark
Last seen together: Season 1 Episode 2, The North Remembers
If you teared up during Jon and Sansa's reunion, then you'll be needing more tissues for the Jon-Arya reunion. Out of all the Stark siblings, Jon (despite being a bastard) and Arya were the ones close. It was Jon who encouraged Arya to be herself, and not the lady she was customed to be. He gave Arya her sword, Needle before separating in Season 1.
Imagine the look on Jon's face to see Arya alive and well, but what will he think of Arya's many faces?
Bonus: Jon Snow and Ghost
Where is Ghost for the past seasons? Did Jon replace him for a dragon?
Consider this our official checklist for Season eight, if all else fails, there will always be a reunion in the afterlife for all our characters, yes?
