Apparently ‘Game of Thrones’ dragons enjoy the smell of Jon Snow
Spoilers below for Game of Thrones Season 7, episode 5. So don’t act like you haven’t been warned.
We FINALLY learned last year that Jon Snow is, in fact, a Targaryen. And it looks like the dragons have now caught wind of it, too.
During tonight’s “Eastwatch,” as Dany flew back to Dragonstone on Drogon after wholesomely burning alive a father and his son, we saw Khaleesi’s favorite son saunter right up to Jon, who was brooding on a clifftop for some reason. The dragon first screamed in his face (not the best thing to do when introducing yourself) and then leaned in to get a closer look/sniff.
What followed was a surprisingly touching scene in which Jon and Drogon had a little bonding moment. Jon even took off his gloves so the dragon could get a better whiff. It obviously pointed to the fact that the dragon apparently recognizes other Targaryens, even though neither Jon nor Dany are aware of his lineage… yet.
This could mean that Jon will one day ride one of Dany’s dragons, or that he made a new friend, or absolutely nothing.
Either way, the internet was overjoyed.
