While much of the usual post-Game of Thrones breakdowns have focused on Daenerys’ explosive conclusion this week, there was a crowd-pleasing moment between two polar opposites in a scene at Castle Black.
The Wall was, for once, a place of cheer and relief as Sansa Stark was finally reunited with Jon Snow, the two greeting each other with a strong embrace (the first time two Starks have seen each other since Bran and Rickon in season three).
Then, as Sansa, Jon and a few others sat down for something to eat, the showrunners teased a most unlikely romance which has taken off with fans on Twitter: Brienne and Tormund.
When Brienne arrived at Castle Black with Sansa, Tormund seemed quite taken with her, watching her intently, as you can see below:
Then, in an attempt to impress her, Tormund ripped into some meat while fixating his attentions on Brienne, practicing his smouldering look.

So, while some may have loved the emotional moment that saw Sansa and Jon reunited, we’re more intrigued to see how this Brienne/Tormund romance plays out. Suffice to say, they could do some serious Bonnie & Clyde-style damage around the Seven Kingdoms if they became an item…
