After months of patient waiting, Season 7 of HBO’s hit show has finally returned to our screens!
However, we all know how tediously painful the long wait has been. In the days leading up to winter’s official arrival, a train station in London decided to alleviate travelers’ pain by replacing transportation updates with quotes and countdowns to the season premiere. Since Monday, July 10th, King’s Cross station briefly ditched its loyalty to Harry Potter (there’s a permanent installation of Platform 9 3/4 at the station) when one employee began writing phrases and references from Game of Thrones. This move received widespread approval as illustrated by social media users’ shared enthusiasm.
