There are spoilers ahead for the most recent episode of Game of Thrones, “Beyond the Wall.” Hopefully you’ve seen it by now, and if not, what are you doing online? The internet is dark and full of literally every single Game of Thrones spoiler you could imagine. Shoo.
“Beyond the Wall” was an episode of heartbreak, and heartache. It also had another heartfelt moment, and you know which one I’m talking about: The scene with Dany and Jon on the boat, where they hold hands, and Jon is like, “I’m so sorry I’m an idiot and thought my plan to go beyond the Wall and capture a wight would work.”
Okay, he doesn’t actually say that, but he should have. Dany and Jon have been dancing around their feelings for the past few episodes, and all of their most trusted advisors — Tyrion! Davos! Missandei! — have stated the obvious. Though neither one of them is willing to outright admit it, Jon and Dany are clearly attracted to one another, and it’s only a matter of time before they do something about it. And yes, I’m completely ignoring the fact that they are aunt and nephew, as everyone else seems to be, too.
And, like any girl with a schoolyard crush, Dany is not willing to admit her feelings right away. Tyrion outright calls her out on her feelings, and she makes the cutest, most “oh stooooop” face:
In an effort to deflect her feelings, Dany straight up BURNS Jon Snow, in one of the most epic 🔥 of the series to date:
You hear that? Jon Snow is too “little” for Dany.
Twitter wasted no time in hailing “he’s too little for me” as the quote of the episode.
Hopefully soon, Dany and her “big heart” can can fully come around to “Little” Jon Snow on Game of Thrones.
