DO NOT PROCEED IF YOU HAVEN’T WATCHED LAST NIGHT’S PREMIERE OF SEASON SEVEN OF GAME OF THRONES.

Anyway, last night’s season premiere of Game of Thrones!!! As a long-time fan of the HBO series, I’d say this is one of their strongest opening episodes. Not gonna lie – watching all the women of the show kick some serious a** made me really happy. Yay to more strong and powerful female characters! Let’s recount some of the highlights from last night’s episode, but first, to set the mood…
