Warning: Small spoilers ahead for Episode 6 of Game of Thrones, “Blood of My Blood.”
As per usual, a in this week’s episode. However, there was one storyline in particular that had fans a whole lot more excited than any of us thought possible.
Last week when the revealed we’d be following Sam and Gilly south to Sam’s home, Horn Hill, I was a little apprehensive about how much screen time the pair would get. But last night all of those worries were for nought when we saw the one of most the glamorous moment of the series take place. Yes, that’s right, I’m talking about when Gilly went all Real Housewives of Horn Hill:
Can anyone else totally hear Roy Orbison’s “Pretty Woman” playing in their head right now?
That’s right, our favorite (still living) wildling underwent a drastic transformation this week thanks to Sam’s little sister Talla giving Gilly a head to toe makeover:
But Sam wasn’t the only one taken aback by Gilly’s change, the fair folk of the internet were also stunned and took to social media to express as much.
First there were some brilliant reactions
