We were so sad to hear about the death of Leonard Nimoy.
But even as we mourn the loss of the Star Trek star, we must also celebrate his life.
It would become a beautiful, serene, and tearful final message to fans. He tweeted:

Welcome back, Westeros! How you've been missed!!
Game of Thrones has finally returned to televisions every where and what a return that was! Two Swords was packed with action!
New characters were introduced! You were reunited with old characters you love!
And, of course, old characters you hate!
The episode was everything and then some, which means the rest of the season is going to be full of gore, back-stabbing, death, & drama! We can't wait!
While last night was full of AH-MAZE moments, there were some which clearly stood out above the others!
Ch-ch-check out our top moments from the episode…AFTER THE JUMP!!!
But first…SPOILER ALERT!!! STOP READING NOW IF YOU DIDN'T WATCH THE PREMIERE EPISODE OF GAME OF THRONES!!
SERIOUSLY! STOP READING NOW!
The first MAJOR moment of the episode was when we were introduced to Oberyn Martell, the Prince of Dorne aka the Red Viper aka the newest badass on the show. We found out he likes his women (& his paramour Ellaria Sand), he HATES the Lannisters, and he takes no shit from ANYONE. (least of all a Lannister!)
We found out that Daenerys Targaryen's itty bitty fire breathing dragons have grown QUITE a lot since the last time we saw them and they can't be tamed by anyone, not even their mother! Uh oh!
The wildlings are waiting in the wings to attack Castle Black, but they're also expecting some company to help them in their attack. Turns out Mance Rayder sent Styr & the Thenns (more new characters!) and surprise, surprise, they're cannibals! Yikes!
While not entirely a major moment, per say, it was a moment that made us laugh and was sure to cement the hate that just about everyone feels for King Joffrey. That statue, though.
Fittingly our favorite little fighter, Arya Stark was reunited with her trusty sword Needle (from big brother Jon Snow), in the best way possible. She killed the guy who stole it from her! Welcome to the badass life, Arya!
We can't WAIT to see what else is in store for Westeros this season!
