For a little while on 'Game of Thrones' season 8 episode 6 Robin Arryn made an appearance - and the internet lost its mind. He is now being hailed as the Neville Longbottom of Game of Thrones. In case you don't remember him, Robin is the last surviving child of Lord Jon Arryn and his late wife, Lysa of House Tully. He has been best known in the series as the kid who breastfed for too long but all that changed in the finale.  

Robin, Lord of the Eyrie, Protector of the Vale and councilman during the Seven Kingdom's meet up to vote the new king appeared completely transformed. He's far from the awkward, creepy and spoilt brat we met back in the Vale when Peter Baelish and Sansa Stark had visited and Twitter couldn't help drop a comment or two about the surprise glow up.

"It think the message #GameOfThrones was trying to get across is to breastfeed until age 12," said a Twitter user. Another one said, "The plot twist of the #GameOfThrones finale is realizing that I’d answer Robin Arryn’s 2am “u up?” texts". Another female fan fawned, "#littlefinger appreciation post: Can we all just take a moment to thank Little Finger for this gem that he helped forge?" 

"Me scanning all the faces in the dragon pit scene: who’s that fancy knight, he must be from the valOHMYGOD THAT’S ROBYN ARRYN wait a second is he hot now????" wrote another fan. 

However, like many of the story arcs that 'Game of Thrones' left utterly forgotten, Lino Facioli's Robin also did not really get much of a part to play. Plus, we don't really know how what happened to him after Peter killed his crazed mother so it's safe to say that the only defining trait that Robin had was that he had grown up and gotten a haircut. 

The series ended with a lot of plot twists and while some of them we had seen coming, this one was definitely shot out of nowhere.
