Game of Thrones: We asked Nigerians to tell us what they think about season 8, episode 1 - here are the best reactions

Game of Thrones Season 8 Episode 1 is finally here.

'Game of Thrones' season 8: Will Daenerys turn? will dragons fight? Is the Iron Throne even the point?

It aired early this morning after months of tantalising teasers, trailers and pictures from HBO.

Following the buzz surrounding this highly anticipated TV show, Business Insider sub-Saharan Africa has put together the best reactions to the first episode of season eight.

Here you go:

"Episode 1 of Season 8 is similar to the very first episode of GOT. Winterfell is at the centre of the story. Characters that we saw at Winterfell are back here for the very last time. The family theme is very strong in this episode. We also get hints of a power struggle between the Starks and Daenerys Targaryen. As usual, GOT writers are saving the fireworks for later. I suspect by the end of Episode 2 or straight up from Episode 3 we will see the clash between the living and the dead." - Ayo.

"Most of all, seeing all the characters back on the screen especially with all the reunion scenes was satisfying. There were a lot of interesting conversations happening and a lot of moving around that sets characters in place for future episodes. I cannot wait to see how it all unfolds now." - Sam.

"I have watched it back from season 1–7 twice, so to finally see the first episode of the new season gave me a sense of satisfaction but also left me super eager to see where things take off from there. The first episode was soo tense, the plot is just laying out and you can sense all the chaos that's about to take place. It was lit, Episode 2 can't come soon enough. Valar Moghulis" - Feranmi.

"Game of Thrones is a seminal show and arguably the greatest TV show ever. The final season gives me shivers and is set to be both a capitalist and humanist success. It is like the zenith of everything we have followed over the past 10 years." - Tolani.

"To sum up my first reaction to the new episode of Game of Thrones would be “About damn time!”. The first scene from the episode was a very nostalgic one with a lot of parallels to the first episode of the first season of the show. The show does a fantastic job of picking up from where they left off 2 years ago and still managing to reveal new information but still leaving a lot to be desired. Winter is finally here and I can't wait to see how the whole thing unfolds!" - Richie.
