But what about Daenerys?
“Game of Thrones” fans reacted swiftly to reports on Tuesday that former co-stars Kit Harington and Rose Leslie had announced their engagement.
The couple had met on the set of the hit HBO series, where Harington’s no-longer-a-bastard Jon Snow had romanced Leslie’s wildling character, Ygritte — until she met her end in typically dramatic fashion toward the end of Season 4.
“Here’s hoping that Kit Harington proposed to Rose Leslie in a sexy cave,” tweeted one fan, referencing the location of a steamy sex scene between Jon and Ygritte.
Others expressed dismay that one of Hollywood’s hottest stars has taken himself off the market. “Kit Harington is engaged … but not to me,” wrote one.
And at least one offered some advice to the couple. “Do NOT, I repeat, DO NOT invite George RR Martin to your wedding,” tweeted one in reference to “Game of Thrones” author’s penchant for creating decidedly lethal wedding receptions.
Here’s a sampling of other responses to the news.
