It may have been six years since Khal Drogo joined the fiery khalasar of the Great Stallion in the Night Lands but it seems his bond with Daenerys is just as strong as it’s ever been.
Or at least the actors who play Drogo and Daenerys – Jason Momoa and Emilia Clarke, are just as close as they’ve ever been.
The pair had a mini Game of Thrones reunion, enjoying a night out in London while Jason was in town to promote his newest movie, Justice League.
When life is so good that your sun and stars is in your city…you lose your eyes and gain 5 grins ? (and gins) where until now they'd only been one… (*grins- there's always more gins) ? @prideofgypsies YOU ALWAYS MOTHER OF DRAGONS MAIN MAN ?? #lookoutjonsnowdrogosgotyournumber #happinessishere #hawaiianhakahunkoffunshutsdownlondon ????
Emilia shared a picture of the two enjoying some gin and grinning like children – clearly delighted to be back in each others company.
Clarke captioned the photo:

@prideofgypsies YOU ALWAYS MOTHER OF DRAGONS MAIN MAN
Fans loved the on-screen couple’s reunion saying; ‘Drogo and Dani forever!!!’, calling them ‘efing goals’, while one rather controversially claimed they were the ‘only real GOT couple’.
Nobody tell Jon Snow, he’ll be devastated!
Hopefully, this photo will tide over Game of Thrones fans who’ve got a long wait ahead of them before the hit fantasy series returns.
In an interview with HBO‘s programming president, Casey Bloys, Entertainment Weekly discovered showrunners, David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, will be working on the final season for the next year and a half, rather than putting their name to any sequels.
This means it may be 2019 before Westeros is back on our screens!
Yeah. They have to write the episodes and figure out the production schedule. We’ll have a better sense of that once they get further into the writing.
Well, at least we’ll be able to read the Winds of Winter while we wait – oh wait, no we won’t, because George R.R. Martin still hasn’t finished that either and is saying it might not be out until 2019.
In fact, according to Inquisitr, he’s been busy working on a different Game of Thrones book called Fire and Blood, which’ll detail the history of the Targaryen family and could be released before The Winds of Winter.
On his blog, George wrote:
I am still working on it [Winds of Winter] , I am still months away (how many? good question), I still have good days and bad days and that’s all I care to say.
Whether WINDS or the first volume of FIRE AND BLOOD will be the first to hit the bookstores is hard to say at this juncture, but I do think you will have a Westeros book from me in 2018… and who knows, maybe two?
Who knows though, maybe we’ll get the book next year? A boy can dream of Spring during the long Winter of course.
More of a concept than a journalist, Tom Percival was forged in the bowels of Salford University from which he emerged grasping a Masters in journalism.
Since then his rise has been described by himself as ‘meteoric’ rising to the esteemed rank of Social Editor at UNILAD as well as working at the BBC, Manchester Evening News, and ITV.
He credits his success to three core techniques, name repetition, personality mirroring, and never breaking off a handshake.
