The big water cooler scene from this week’s Game of Thrones was obviously Daenerys kicking ass and taking names by setting fire to the temple of the Dosh Khaleen and everyone in it. However, we’d be remiss if we didn’t mention another slower burn from Sunday’s episode. Namely, from the moment Brienne of Tarth came riding into Castle Black to reunite Sansa with Jon Snow, someone was immediately smitten.
Wildling leader Tormund clearly likes himself a female who is strong as hell, judging by his brief, but oh so smoldering interactions with Brienne, and the internet definitely took notice judging by fan reactions ‘shipping the potential couple. (Of course, this is Game of Thrones and no one is ever happy, but for what it’s worth.)
Google is also on board:
It’s like people don’t even remember that they were ‘shipping Brienne and Jaime just a couple of seasons ago, SMH.
