What happens when Khal Drogo, Daenerys Targaryen and Jon Snow sit in for a reunion? Oh yes, they get drunk and do epic shit! Emilia Clarke, who portrays the role of Daenerys Targaryen with her former on-screen husband Jason Momoa (Khal Drogo) and now love interest Kit Harrington (Jon Snow) were all happy and going nuts over Dirty Dancing.
GoT season 8 will premiere in 2019
The stars took to their Instagram account and shared pictures of their reunion. In the photos, the Great Khal is seen holding the Khaleesi the Iron Throne in the background. It was an apparent nod to the famous lake scene from Dirty Dacning where Patrick Swayze hoists Jennifer Grey above his head.
"FYI...This is the closest you’ll ever get to me attempting ‘that lift’ from dirty dancing. Yes, my man is sitting. Yes, there’s no lake. And yes, I have no idea I’m NOT being raised above his head. (Id like to take a moment to thank alcohol for giving me courage to attempt this. Ever.) @gameofthrones @prideofgypsies #nooneputsdrogointhecorner #imhavingthetimeofmylife #fyi #thankgodwegotthatmanonathrone #mysunandstarsintheireyes," wrote Emilia along the picture with Jason Momoa.
"Moon of my life @emilia_clarke every time I leave you my face hurts from smiling to much. I Fucking love you forever. Aloha j," wrote Jason Momoa with his video clips with Emilia Clarke.
"I’m so grateful to be apart of the greatest show on earth. I’m honored to be able to come to Ireland and celebrate with my friends. I’m just here for kisses and hugs and The black stuff . mahalo David and Dan you are legends . Congrats to the talented crew and cast. Aloha j," Jason captioned the images with Kit!
It fuelled plenty of speculation and wish fulfilment among Game of Thrones fans as they hoped for Momoa's potential return in the show's final season. His character Khal Drogo was killed in the finale of the very first season and if he does reappear in the next years season eight, it looks unlikely it could be for anything more than a flashback.
Momoa also shared similar Dirt Dancing-esque photos with Kit Harrington while Clarke posed with her TV right-hand woman, Missandei (Nathalie Emmanuel).
The final season of Game of Thrones will comprise six movie-length episodes. It is set to premiere in April 2019. Emilia Clarke was last seen in Solo: A Star Wars Story.
