This week’s episode of Game of Thrones, “Book of a Stranger,” finally saw some excitement with Khaleesi’s storyline, as destroyed the ruling Dothraki and took over as leader of the nomadic warriors. She is now better positioned to eventually unite with Jon Snow and take over Westeros. Before a battle can be waged for Iron Throne, however, Jon Snow has to get his head right, and in that respect, his long-awaited reunion with Sansa Stark — and their eventual battle for the North — should go a long way toward the series’ end game.
That moment, by the way, was a rare moment of pure joy in a series so often permeated with moments of bleakness and violence. Twitter, expectedly, was ecstatic. We’ll have much more in the coming days on this “Book of Stranger,” but for now, here’s how Twitter reacted to the tearful reunion.

Sansa: "married. How've you been?"
Sansa and Jon's bonding is adorable. And also their warmongering. #GameofThrones— Cersei the VIOLENT (@NiceQueenCersei) May 16, 2016
