And you thought your family reunion was a cringefest. Imagine the Lannister family reunion!

On "Game of Thrones," Tyrion Lannister hasn't seen sister Cersei or brother Jaime since the end of Season 4, when he escaped the dungeons to flee to Essos. Then, he was captured by slavers, convinced Daenerys Targaryen to take him on as an advisor, ruled Meereen in her absence, and at the start of Season 7, is journeying back to Westeros as Hand of the Queen.

Once he arrives, he faces a difficult reunion with his siblings. As Peter Dinklage told Entertainment Weekly, Tyrion "is bracing himself."

"He's returning home, and returning home a new person. He has Dany and the dragons on his side but he is a very different person than when he left this place," Dinklage said. And he's returning to a brother he loves and a sister he ..."

Despises? Wants dead? Thinks is a nutjob? All of the above?

Like his castmates, Dinklage has found his time on screen is multiplying in Season 7.

"I've worked more days this season than I have in quite some time," he noted. "I love Meereen but it's good to get out of Meereen because you're in one story and here you're in overlapping stories."

"Game of Thrones" Season 7 premieres Sunday, July 16 on HBO.
