We knew we’d see a reunion between Arya Stark and her beloved direwolf Nymeria this season on Game of Thrones. It’s only been one of the most anticipated scenes for book and show fans, considering the only direwolves left are Jon Snow‘s Ghost and Arya’s Nymeria. Besides, any reunion involving Starks and/or their direwolves just means we’re all joyfully ugly crying, and that doesn’t happen very often on Game of Thrones. However, Arya and Nymeria’s reunion wasn’t exactly what we were expecting.
Here’s what we all thought this reunion was going to look like.

Instead, we find out Nymeria has a new wolfpack. That doesn’t stop Arya from trying to win her back and skip along back home to Winterfell together, like the happily ever after we all want. But Nymeria takes a long look at Arya and then basically DGAF.
Twitter did not handle this well, as you can see below.
New pack, who dis?
