2. Sam’s Poop and Soup Montage at the Citadel

When Game of Thrones takes a break from the gore, sex, and heartache, it has its funny moments, and this week’s premiere will probably go down as one of the funniest because of Sam’s poop and soup montage at the Citadel.

Yes, you have read that right. Game of Thrones practically created a song consisting fast-cut scenes of the noises of poop pans being cleaned out, soup being served, pans being scrubbed and Sam retching at the realization of what his new life at the Citadel consists of. Let’s just say it’s probably not as bad as life at the wall, but it certainly looks dirtier and sicker.

3. Ed Sheeran’s Cameo

If you didn’t notice, Ed Sheeran was singing a song in the middle of the woods in Westeros when Ayra came by their little campground of Lannister soldiers heading to secure the Twins after the Freys were massacred.

While it may have been a bit distracting to see Sheeran singing in Westeros, he actually blended in quite nicely in one of the best scenes in tonight’s episode. After Ayra killed the Freys, she comes across Sheeran and his merry band and overly-friendly soldiers. These people were in fact so nice that they offered a place by the fire for Ayra and some food.

Ayra is, of course, shocked by this. No one has been kind to her since season 1 so it takes her a minute to adjust to their kindness and sit beside these Lannister soldiers. We learn that one of them just had a baby back at home and that just because these men are fighting for the Lannisters, it doesn’t make them bad people. We don’t really know what happens to them (we are assuming that Ayra learns in this scene that she has to pick and choose who to kill and who to spare), but we hope that things go well for these nice soldiers (even though it’s Westeros and things hardly go well for anyone).
