Game of Thrones returned for its eighth and final season with an episode filled with lines of dialogue to enjoy.
The episode marked the reunion of several main characters, including Jon Snow and Arya Stark, and did a good job of doling out screen time to each member of its crowded ensemble.
Elsewhere, it featured a hilarious reference to last season’s controversial Ed Sheeran cameo as well as a terrifying death at the hands of the Night King, an explainer of which you can find here.
Below are the 10 best lines from the premiere, titled “The Contest”.
Sansa: [snarkily] “What exactly do dragons eat?”
Daenerys: “Whatever they want.”
Tyrion: [about Joffrey’s wedding] “it was a miserable affair.”

Arya: “Once or twice.”
