Winter has officially come for the 2018 Olympics in PyeongChang, and it is epic.
Fentz even worked his way through his routine in a golden breastplate. That crimson piece of fabric on his sleeve? A likely playful nod to character Jamie Lannister’s missing hand.
Although the skater planned to tackle a quad in the program, he decided to go for a triple instead. It wasn’t his best footwork. But what’s a Game of Thrones story without a twist?
As far as mashups go, this one is about right. After all, some viewers watch the PyeongChang games much like they watch the HBO series: invigorated, addicted, and feeling vaguely terrified that their favorite major player will wipe out.
Given the passion for this show and the intensity on the ice, it was only appropriate that fans on the internet recapped the proceedings with much emotion.
And you better believe commentators Tara Lipinski and Johnny Weir peppered in all the puns from the fantasy television series.
No one can wait for the show featuring epic dragon battles and a whispering man named Littlefinger to return, but at least fans have this wintry moment.
See some of the best reactions below.

Honestly wouldn’t have cared if this guy skating to a piano cover of the game of thrones theme song fell every 3 seconds, we need to give him every medal. #pyeongchang2018— Monica Bridgelall (@mbridgelall) February 17, 2018

Shout to German figure skater Paul Fentz for doing his routine dressed as Jamie Lannister and playing some music from Game of Thrones. #GoT— Kenny Rochford (@01BlackSpider01) February 17, 2018
Why homie looking like he's auditioning for Lancel Lannister in "Topeka, KS Presents: Game of Thrones on Ice" pic.twitter.com/kp0CnfwfwG— Danny Woods (@dcwoods89) February 17, 2018
But apparently, the Night King is the only ice royalty some accept.
If you're going to do your figure skating routine to the Game of Thrones soundtrack, you should have to dress as the Night King. #Olympics— Scott Ylinen (@spylinen) February 17, 2018
Game of Thrones music to Olympics Figure Skating? I love it. All we need is Khaleesi flying in on one of her dragons. Or better yet, the Night King refreezing the ice with his night dragon.— Arjun Sethi (@arjunsethi81) February 17, 2018
