Jon and Dany Have More Chemistry in This Photo Than In All of Game of Thrones
For some inexplicable reason, Jon Snow and Danerys Targareyn
have more chemistry in this Instagram photo from a Rolling
Stone photo shoot that took place five years ago than they
do acting on the show about dragons and politics, and I would
LOVE to know why!
Before the theories, here are some facts. This photo, via Refinery29, is from a
photoshoot with the Game of Thrones friends out of
their Westerosi drag and in regular-ass clothes, looking like
normal people sans elaborate wigs and furs and chain mail.
Peggy Sirota, the photographer for the shoot, threw this casual
outtake on Instagram last year. In an interview with the Daily
Beast, director Alan Taylor basically confirmed that
yes, Jon and Dany are about to get it the fuck on, answering
the prayers and insistent please of the thirstiest aunties of
Westeros and ideally satisfying a small but vocal nation of
horned-up GoT fans desperate to see Kit Harington’s
fine ass bone down. Great news, all around.
But why do they have more chemistry in this photograph than
they ever have on the show?
What is it about Game of Thrones that saps the
sexytime out of any interaction these two characters have? Is
it because the actors know that they’re related but their
characters don’t and they’re staunchly against incest? Is it
because Kit Harrington is a bad actor but a very handsome man?
Maybe the furs make it hard. Maybe Dany’s wig cap is coming
loose in every scene. Maybe they don’t really like each other.
Maybe Ygritte’s spirit haunts the corners of every set and all
Jon Snow can think of is the time he went down on her in a
cave. What if Jon hates dragons? What if the dragons feel the
need to be involved? What if this is just some storyline that
no one is really down with but the fans know it NEEDS to happen
and so it’s going to but everyone wants to die a little
thinking about it?
I don’t have an answer, but they are finally going to fuq, and
for that I am immeasurably grateful.
