Game Of Thrones: Dragons Staring At Jon Snow Might Be Show's Funniest Moment Ever

After all of the waiting and speculation, the first episode of the eighth and final season of Game of Thrones has finally touched down.

As much as everyone wanted to see the reunions between the Stark children, as well as Tyrion and Sansa, and Arya and Gendry, and as much as we all wanted moments like Little Lord Umber's surprise reawakening, one moment has entered into the folklore of Westeros - weirdly - for being funny.

Even more strange, the stars of the moment were Daenerys Targaryen's dragons.

Now, Game of Thrones isn't exactly known for being funny. To be fair, it's more grisly and horrifying than just about any other show on the telly - however, when they want to, they can have a laugh.

Basically, Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryen had gone on a lovely romantic dragon ride and were having a little smooch when Jon opened his eyes.

Peering - or should that be leering? - over his shoulder were two gigantic dragons with the most quizzical but amusing look on their faces.

We know that dragons are supposed to be really clever, but surely they couldn't know, could they?

I mean, during the episode Jon Snow discovered not only that he's the rightful heir to the Iron Throne, the true born son of Lyanna Stark and Rhaegar Targaryen, but also romantically involved in the worst possible way with his auntie - the Mother of Dragons.

That's a lot to take in, but he hadn't learned that just yet. Which brings us back to the moment one of Dany's dragons gave him that look.

Could they possibly know? Does it recognise one of it's own? We'll never know.

That hasn't stopped people speculating online about it. It's about as funny as the show ever gets, so we have to enjoy these times before the relentless killing begins once again.

By the way, Jon Snow rode the dragon before this! Fans have been asking for this for ages, and it should have been a dead giveaway that he's a Targaryen in truth, but there you go.

Again, the good people behind Game of Thrones are not big on fan appeasement - take it where you can find it.

As for the rest of the episode, everything is building up nicely to a huge battle between living and dead, then another battle between whoever is left. We can only wait until next week to find out.

The next episode will air at 2am on Monday 22 April, before it is repeated at 9pm the same day.
