The latest Game of Thrones episode, The Broken Man was an exciting episode as we got to see the Hound once again in the show, we saw Blackfish after many seasons, Bronn finally made an appearance in the 6th season. The Waif stabbed Arya in a style which reminded us of the Red Wedding, Margaery revealed that she was just playing along to gain the High Sparrow’s trust. Lot of things happened but all of them paled in comparison with what happened when Jon and Sansa met everyone’s new favourite Game of Thrones character, Lyanna Mormont.
The 10 year old head of House Mormont is simply a badass and she literally stole the show. She might be a small 10 year old girl but Jon Snow and Sansa Stark were simply speechless in front of her and didn’t know how to respond to her brutally straightforward and blunt replies. Luckily for them Ser Davos Seaworth somehow managed to handle the situation and ferocious Lyanna agreed to offer 62 Mormont soldiers for Jon and Sansa’s cause while making it clear that, “every man from Bear Island fights with the strength of 10 mainlanders.”
Game of Thrones fans instantly fell in love with Lyanna Mormont and they just couldn’t stop talking about her. Lyanna Momont is played by the talented newcomer Bella Ramsey and her acting skills have impressed everyone. For those who don’t know, Lyanna Mormont is the cousin of Ser Jorah Mormont and the niece of the ex Lord Commander Jeor Mormont. This is not the first time we have heard about Lyanna Mormont in the show. In the last season Stannis Baratheon had sent a Raven to her to ask for her support for his cause. Even at that time her response was simply badass. She wrote back to Stannis saying, “Bear Island knows no king but the King in the North, whose name is Stark.”
Game of Thrones fans took to Twitter to declare support for their new favourite character and here are some of the tweets.
My career goals now and forever are to be the Lyanna Mormont of the room.

If George had given Lyanna Mormont 3 dragons this story would have been over 4 seasons ago. pic.twitter.com/csRVNShZ57
