The 6 Best Moments from Daenerys Targaryen & Jon Snow’s First Meeting
On last night's episode of Game of Thrones, the most anticipated meeting in series history took place: Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryen (Queen of Meereen, Mother of Dragons, Khaleesi of the Great Grass Sea, Breaker of Chains...we can keep going) came face to face.
Avid GoT fans dreamed the King in the North (Kit Harington) and Khaleesi (Emilia Clarke) would instantly fall in love and form the most powerful (and beautiful) alliance to claim the Iron Throne. *Prays David Benioff and D.B. Weiss ship Jon and Dany* But, sigh, the meeting didn't quite play out as swimmingly as fantasized. Instead, the two leaders butted heads, badly. We suppose the harsh verbal sparring and battle of inflated titles could bloom into something special à la a telltale grammar school crush. After all, Jon Snow will be mining Dragonstone until he has enough to defeat the army of the dead. Here, six standout moments from one of the most crucial meetings—that may or may not have been riddled with sexual tension (what, just us?)—in all seven seasons of GoT.
When Dany Kicked Things Off with a Power Play
Not only did Khaleesi fail to greet Jon Snow and co. upon their arrival to Dragonstone, but she also ordered all weapons and their ship be taken away, practically rendering them prisoners of the island. You do you and show Snow who's boss, Dany.
And Seriously Wouldn’t Let It Go that the King in the North Should Bend the Knee
Upon first meeting the Protector of the Seven Kingdoms, awe and terror are written all over Jon's face. It probably didn't help that Khaleesi's list of accomplishments and titles takes a minimum of five minutes to rattle off. Checkmate, Snow.
When Jon Snow Refused to Bend the Knee & the Verbal Sparring Begins
Jon Snow may know nothing, but he rose to his prestigious leadership role because of sheer grit and hard-earned respect from his peeps. Bend this knee, lady. *Sexual tension and power struggle mounts*
And Jon Snow Mentioned that Whole Army of the Dead Thing
Just so we're all up to speed, the two power players both called each other doo doo heads crazy, insisted they're both, respectively, the rightful rulers of the Seven Kingdoms and demanded they help fight each other's wars. We're off to a great start here. Never mind that Jon isn't 100 percent sure if he's a prisoner of Dragonstone... Status: It's complicated.
When They Finally Hashed It Out and Made Nice
“Jany” finally put aside their differences and had a heart to heart where they learned communication is the key to a successful relationship. So you're saying there's a chance...?
And Finally, When the Dragons Dramatically Flew Away to Mark the Dawn of a New Era
Lock two very strong-headed, attractive people on an island and you never know what can happen. Looking at you, Temptation Island. How long does it take to mine Dragonstone, anyway?
