[Warning: This story contains spoilers from the season- seven premiere of HBO's Game of Thrones, "Dragonstone."]

Samwell Tarly (John Bradley) escaped the North. He saved Gilly (Hannah Murray) and her baby from certain doom on the front lines of the White Walker war. He stood up to his horrible father and stole his house's ancestral sword. He reached the Citadel in Oldtown, where he has more information at his fingertips than he could possibly read in a lifetime. Really, so much has broken in his favor in such a short period of time.

Why, then, is Sam so down in the dumps?
