The “will they or won’t they” dynamic between Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) and Jon Snow (Kit Harington) on Game of Thrones has every fan feeling some type of way, but now we finally know what Dany herself thinks about the possibility of a romance between the two characters. While shedding some light on the scene where Drogon allows Jon to pet him (that Targaryen blood must smell pretty great!) during a behind-the-scenes look at the most recent episode, “Eastwatch,” Clarke acknowledged that the Dragon Queen’s googly eyes are for real.
“She sees his interaction with her dragons, and it’s an attractive quality for her,” Clarke said, also taking note of Ser Jorah’s disappointment upon seeing the two together when he arrives on Dragonstone. “Me and Jon Snow just chillin’ on a cliff by ourselves,” she joked. “Don’t read too much into it.”
It’s hard not to read at least a little into it, when it appears that a love triangle between Dany, Jon, and Jorah is in the works (especially after we got a glimpse of Jorah’s true feelings for Dany in an earlier episode). “It’s one of the most tender moments you’ll see from Daenerys this season,” Clarke said of Dany and Jorah’s emotional reunion. “The thing about Ser Jorah is that he has been the one from the very beginning. I think he has an ability to see right through her.”
Love triangle or no love triangle, let’s just hope Jon and Jorah survive their ridiculously dangerous mission to capture a wight in episode six.
