You certainly weren’t the only one floored over Arya’s opening scene from Sunday night’s season 7 premiere of Game of Thrones. Nor were you alone in your surprise at seeing Ed Sheeran pop up as a crooning Lannister soldier. Celebrities were freaking out, too.

“Don’t f— with the North son!!” tweeted Leslie Jones. “BEST SEASON OPENING EVER!! SHE WAS SO CALM!! YAAAAS!!”

“Does anyone know if Arya Starks F’s around? I’ve always got the impression she doesn’t F around,” wrote Jones’ former fellow Saturday Night Live player Taran Killam.

“Arya. Now… of Many Faces. I see you! A woman is ready!” wrote A Wrinkle in Time director Ava DuVernay, who live-tweeted the entire episode.
