Season 6 of “Game of Thrones” got off to a pretty great start, even though that thing that everyone was hoping would happen didn’t happen. We got all that we expect from a GoT premiere — death, drama, and gratuitous nudity. Here are just a few reactions about the premiere from Austinites:
Because it really should be an official holiday.

Mario is all of us waiting patiently in our living rooms.

And yours truly prepped for the episode with a little Season 5 character recap through a hazy lens.

But they can’t kill off a president, right?
Tyrion for President. “That’s what I do. I drink, and I know things.” #GameOfThrones

King of Geeks, Harry Knowles, knows that his cats are the only ones he can trust to not spoil the show.
Correction: Knowles tweeted to tell me they’re puppies, not cats. I guess Mr. Peanut Butter just sounded very feline to me.
OK – leaving my house. Leaving HBO screen on so Jeff Goldblum & Mr Peanut Butter can watch #GameofThrones – they can’t spoil it for me!

His weren’t the only cats eager to see what fate befell Jon Snow (but probably weren’t particularly worried about what was up with Ghost).

Though some unfortunate souls just don’t get it…

This beautiful soul threw a “Game of Thrones” costume party, and everyone managed to look absolutely stunning, no matter how drunk they were.

Matt said what we’ve all been thinking ever since the Starks first uttered their family words.

Because grannies are so hot right now.
Glad #GameofThrones finally got around to gratuitous elderly nudity. It was only a matter of time.

Complete with scavenger hunt and punny team names.

Here’s the menu from the party, each food pun as great as the one before it.

Me? I’m just here for the accessories.

Katey wasn’t at all happy with some of the patronizing reviews of the episode. We’re with ya, Katey.

Until next week, y’all! And if you weren’t lucky enough to get your ex to cough up one of those passwords, North Door is showing “Game of Thrones” every weekend on their big screen (for free!)
