A lighthearted moment from the set of Game of Thrones shows Jon Snow actor Kit Harington sending Daenerys Targaryen actress Emilia Clarke into peals of delighted laughter by flapping his flowing black robes as though he were one of Dany's fearsome dragons (though "fearsome" isn't exactly the word that comes to mind as Harington performs his dragon impression while clad in his IKEA rugs).
One of the highlights of Game of Thrones Season 7 came when the Mother of Dragons finally came face-to-face with the King in the North. Though their relationship got off to a rocky start, Dany and Jon eventually arrived at a place where they could trust each other and possibly become allies. In a pivotal moment, Jon petted one of Dany's dragons, a seeming acknowledgement that Jon is actually related to Daenerys (a fact that was revealed to Bran in the finale of season 6) and that the two of them are destined to fight side-by-side against the White Walkers.
Things may be getting increasingly serious on Game of Thrones, especially for Jon and Dany, but you'd never know it by the video Emilia Clarke posted to Instagram of Kit Harington doing his best impression of a dragon. The clip shows Harington on the now-familiar cliff-top where Jon Snow had his up-close-and-personal moment with Dany's dragon Drogon, flapping his black robes and making Clarke laugh.
I mean, JEEEZE, one pet of a dragon and he thinks he's one of them. ?♀️ #youknownothingjonsnow #butyoudoknowhowtonotgetblownoffacliffingaleforsewindssotheresalwaysthat ? #everypunaboutwindicanthinkofinserthere ?
With only two episodes left to go in season 7, many fans are wondering if we will soon see the long-awaited moment when Jon Snow finds out his true origins and learns that he is in fact the nephew of Daenerys. The show has teased viewers a little bit this season with the possibility of Jon and Dany becoming romantically linked before learning that they are in fact blood relatives, a development that would be either awesome or disgusting depending on how you feel about incest.
When last we left Jon Snow, he and his band of not-so-merry men were headed north of the Wall to capture a wight with the intention of bringing it to Cersei in King's Landing in hopes that this might convince the increasingly crazed queen to take seriously the threat of the supposedly mythical White Walkers and their army of the dead. The plan sounds like a longshot at best, but as we've seen before on Game of Thrones, it's never a good idea to underestimate Jon Snow. He has come back from the dead once already, after all.
Game of Thrones returns Sunday @9PM on HBO.
