Daenerys & Drogo Have a Game of Thrones Reunion at the Oscars

Danny + Khal forever! In addition to being Hollywood’s biggest night, the Academy Awards also serve as a great opportunity for co-stars and friends to reunite and catch up. Cue two of our favorites: Game of Thrones’ Emilia Clarke and Jason Momoa. The actors took some time out to reunite for a little family reunion and snapped a few pics.

Here’s the first one from Momoa’s Instagram below:

Simply adorable. The nostalgia is real! The movie-making industry is very small, so it’s always nice to see actors getting along both on and off the screen. Despite Momoa’s appearance in only the first season of Game of Thrones, the actor’s Khal Drogo character played a pivotal role in shaping Clarke’s central character, as well as the subsequent seasons of the fantasy drama series.

For GOT non-fans, Emilia Clarke and Jason Momoa played Daenerys Targaryen and Khal Drogo, an early power couple in the series. Their time together would serve as a crucial stepping stone in Daenerys’ character development. Drogo later died, along with their son. Skip a few episodes, and Daenerys chose to tread into the fire with her dragon eggs, arising as the Mother of Dragons.

The love fest continued on Instagram, with Clarke and Momoa joined by his wife Lisa Bonnet, who he rightfully declares his “QUEENS”:

Could the Night King resurrect Drago, please? R.I.P. Khal Drago. Speaking of the Night King, HBO dropped a new teaser during the Oscars featuring new footage of our favorite royal pain in the butt, along with Arya Stark meeting Daenerys’ fierce dragons for the first time. This succeeds our first look at the final season last month, along with other dramas like True Detective, Big Little Lies, and Damon Lindelof’s upcoming Watchmen series.

Winter is finally here, when Season 8 of Game of Thrones returns to HBO on Sunday, April 14.
