Alongside the excitement there were plenty of tired tweeters feeling the impact of their decision.

Ash Denton said: ‘Getting up at 2am to watch Game of Thrones might not have been my brightest idea… I’m so sleepy#GameOfThrones.’

Vanessa MacAulay wrote: ‘Truly a zombie apocalypse this morning amongst those of us who stayed up to watch the 2am showing of GOT.. #GameofThrones #GameofThronesSeason8.’

Others decided to dodge the Game Of Thrones hangover by not turning up for work, according to one poll of 2,000 adults by online travel guide Culture Trip.

This found six percent – equivalent to 3.1 million nationwide – were considering this course of action.

Many other fans shared their excitement at seeing the show return to HBO and Sky Atlantic.

Laura Wright tweeted: ‘2am for us Brits. If you think I’m gonna stay up til 3 in the morning just to watch a tv show I could watch tomorrow night, you’re absolutley right!!! #dracarys #GameofThrones.’

And Joanne Murphy said: ‘When you’ve watch the new episode of #GameofThrones before work and your sitting here trying not to spoil it for everyone.’

But there were many fans tweeting this morning would had not watched the show and hoped no one at work would ruin it for them with spoilers.

‘Happy Game of Thrones day! Pretty well avoiding twitter for the day until I can get home to watch it tonight. LOVE the estimation that up to 3 million Brits will be pulling a sickie today after staying up to watch! #nospoilersplease #GameofThrones,’ wrote Helen-Ann Smith.

Many fans had long speculated that Jon Snow was of royal lineage, even before a TV series was made of George R.R. Martin’s A Song Of Ice And Fire book series.

However few had anticipated that Jon would sleep with Daenerys – who is technically his aunt- at the end of the previous season.

The only people who knew the truth about Snow is The Three Eyed Raven, a.k.a. Bran Stark (Isaac Hempstead-Wright), through his Greensight abilities, and Samwell Tarly (John Bradley), who Bran told in the Season 7 finale.

So when Jon’s longtime friend Samwell Tarly broke the news of his twisted family tree to the one-time ‘King In The North’, the internet erupted.

While the Season 8 premiere did not show The Night King and his army advancing further into Westeros, Jon Snow (Kit Harington) finally learned the truth about who he really is – the true heir to the Iron Throne, while his new queen, Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) set foot in Winterfell for the first time.

What happened in the Game Of Thrones season 8 premiere? How Jon Snow FINALLY learned the truth about his parents and Daenerys arrived in Winterfell

By Brian Gallagher for Dailymail.com  

The Season 7 finale set the stage for an epic battle, as The Night King (with the help of the resurrected dragon Viserion) destroyed The Wall at Eastwatch, entering Westeros for the first time.

While the Season 8 premiere did not show The Night King and his army advancing further into Westeros, Jon Snow (Kit Harington) finally learned the truth about who he really is – the true heir to the Iron Throne, while his new queen, Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) set foot in Winterfell for the first time.

Aside from the reveal of Jon Snow’s true heritage, one of the other memorable moments was Snow continuing his romance with Daenerys Targaryen, as they took time near a waterfall to start kissing.

However, as they start kissing, the dragons react, but Daenerys tells him not to be afraid. Still, he keeps eyeing the dragon.

If Dany and Jon’s relationship is to move forward, it’s clear that Jon needs to somehow find a way to get on the good side of her remaining two dragons. 

The Season 8 premiere kicked off with a recap of Season 7, which ended with The Night King destroying the wall at Eastwatch and the White Walker army setting foot in Westeros. 

The opening scene showed a young boy running through the snowy landscape in Winterfell, rushing past a number of people before he gets to a crowd, as we see Arya Stark (Maisie Williams) as part of the crowd.

The young boy rushes to climb up a tree to see the commotion, scaling high enough for him to see the massive army of Unsullied soldiers entering Westeros, lead by Daenerys Targaryen and Jon Snow, as Arya sees her adopted brother for the first time in several years.

Part of this convoy is The Hound (Rory McCann) and Gendry (Joe Dempsie), as we see inside one of the wagons where Tyrion Lannister (Peter Dinklage) tells a joke to the eunuch Varys (Conleth Hill) about having no balls.

Jon Snow tells Daenerys that Northerners don’t trust outsiders, as the Winterfell townsfolk react in shock to the dragons flying overhead, including Sansa Stark (Sophie Turner).

Jon snow reunites with Bran, stating, ‘Look at you. You’re a man,’ to which Bran replies, ‘Almost.’

Jon hugs Sansa, who replies that his sister Arya is ‘lurking somewhere.’

Jon introduces Dany to Sansa, as Dany says, ‘The north is as beautiful as your brother claimed, as are you,’ but Bran interjects with, ‘We dont’ have time for this.’

Young Ned Umber (Harry Grasby), the Lord of House Umber, says they need more horses and wagons, with Sansa telling him they’ll have as many as they can spare, tells him to send his people here to Winterfell.

Young Lyanna Stark (Aisling Franciosi) isn’t too thrilled Jon has returned with the Dragon queen.

‘You left a king and you came back, I don’t know what you are,’ but Jon interjects, ‘It’s not important.’

Lyanna adds, ‘It is important. We named you king in the north,’ but Tyrion interjects with a statement that isn’t too popular with the Northerners.

‘We have brought two full grown dragons and soon the Lannister army will join our cause but we must fight together now or die,’ the half-man says.

Sansa has more logistical concerns, asking how they plan to feed everyone, and asking what dragons eat, with Daenerys answering, ‘Whatever they want.’

Gendry is seen passing out dragon glass, as Tyrion reunites with Sansa, since the last time they spoke was at the Purple Wedding way back in Season 4, where King Joffrey (Jack Gleeson) was poisoned to death.

‘We both survived,’  Sansa said, with Tyrion adding that he underestimated her.

Tyrion tells Sansa that she has every right to be worried about her sister and Sansa doesn’t believe that she will help them in their war, with Sansa adding, ‘I used to think you were the cleverest man alive.’

While the Night King has one dragon, Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) still has two more – Drogon and Rhaegal – which she’ll take into battle against The Night King, alongside Jon Snow (Kit Harington) and his new weapons forged from Dragonglass, the one substance that can kill White Walkers.

Jon and Arya reunite, Arya asks how he survived a knife through the heart, he says he didn’t, though he doesn’t mention that he was resurrected by the red priestess Melissandre (Carice Van Houten). 

 Jon mentions she still has her sword, needle, which she says she’s used, ‘once or twice.’

Jon asks where she was before that he could use her help with Sansa, Arya says Sansa is defending her family, and he says he’s her family to, with Arya adding, ‘Don’t forget that.’

Back at the Red Keep, Qyburn (Anton Lesser) tells Cersei some ‘terrible news’ that the dead have broken through the wall, which Cersei replies with, ‘Good,’ as the Golden Army’s ships are seen coming into the harbor.

On one of the ships, Yara (Gemma Whelan) is tied up to a ship, asking Euron (Pilou Asbaek) why he doesn’t kill her, but he responds that he’d have no one to talk to if he killed her.

Yara says Euron picked the losing side, with Euron saying he’ll just serve somewhere else, but first he wants to ‘f**k the queen.’

In the Throne Room, Cersei is disappointed to learn that the Golden Company did not bring any elephants, which they are known for, but he says they aren’t good for long sea journeys like the one they took to King’s Landing.

When he persists, she says he’s executed men for less, but he tells her they were lesser men, and while she turns to leave, she stops, allowing him to join her, as Euron gets his wish after all.

Bronn (Jerome Flynn) is with a trio of whores, telling them he was the only man to kill a dragon, when he’s interrupted by Qyburn, who tells Bronn he’s needed by the Queen.

Qyburn says the Crown has wronged him and they want to right it, telling him there is a chest of gold in a wagon right outside.

Qyburn says the Queen’s brothers (Jaime and Tyrion) are unlikely to survive their adventures up north, but if they don’t, she wants Bronn to kill them… with the same crossbow Tyrion killed their father Tywin (Charles Dance) with in the Season 4 finale. 

Since Bronn has a history with broth Jaime and Tyrion, it will be something to keep an eye on for the rest of the season, as fans will ultimately learn if Bronn will choose money over honor.

After their tryst in bed, Euron asks Cersei how he stacks up to both the late King Robert Baratheon (Mark Addy) and her brother, which indicates how far that talk of her incest-fueled romance with Jaime have spread.

Cersei adds that he might be the most arrogant man she’s ever met, and while she likes that, now she wants to be alone, with Euron telling her before leaving that he’s going to put a prince in her belly. 

On the Iron Island’s ship, a number of guards are killed, with Theon Greyjoy (Alfie Allen) coming to save his sister, who returns the favor by head-butting him, before picking him up as they leave together.

Yara says that Euron can’t defend the Iron Islands and they can take their home back, but Yara says he wants to go to Winterfell to fight for the Starks.

While we don’t see Yara and Theon go their separate ways, it seems Yara has made peace with her brother going off to fight for his adoptive family who raised him.

The Carstarks return to Winterfell, with Davos Seaworth (Liam Cunningham) telling Tyrion that they need to earn the Northerners’ trust.

Davos proposes that Daenerys and Jon rule the Seven Kingdoms, a Varys (Conleth Hill) and Tyrion discuss the possibilities of their rule, as they watch Dany and Jon talk below.

Daenerys mentions to Jon that his sister doesn’t like her, adding that she doesn’t have to be her friend, but she is her queen, before a group of Dothraki soldiers ride up, telling her that her dragons are ‘barely eating.’
