Oh man! What an episode. The Game of Thrones (opens in new tab) season 6 finale is already being hailed as the best episode ever (opens in new tab) (taking the title from last week's episode (opens in new tab)), but while most fans are talking about what happened, some are rejoicing over a subtle change in the show's title sequence. 

Did you spot it?

For a while now, the flayed man - the sigil of House Bolton - has featured atop Winterfell in the show's iconic title sequence. Booooooo!

But the Bolton's defeat at the hands of Jon and Sansa means that Winterfell once again belongs to the Starks, and that's a change the showrunners choose to reflect in the finale's opening credits. 

I have to admit, I missed it myself, but I'm so glad fans pointed it out as it's a really heart-warming way to finish season 6 before the long wait for season 7.
