It was a loaded look.
In the "Game of Thrones" Season 7 finale, Tyrion Lannister (Peter Dinklage) peeped a bit when Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) and Jon Snow (Kit Harington) had their first love scene.
Tyrion did not look pleased.
While talking to Entertainment Weekly about "My Dinner with Hervé," Peter Dinklage explained what Tyrion was thinking in that moment:
"[I]t’s complicated… A lot of the time with Tyrion, it’s professional and personal. Obviously, he has feelings for Daenerys. He loves her — or thinks he does. She’s awe-inspiring. He’s questioning that because he doesn’t have a good track record for falling in love. There’s jealousy wrapped up in there. And he loves Jon Snow, too. They’re the two people he has the most in common with, in a way — they’re both outsiders in their own families who have refused to follow the path their family has taken, and hopefully for the better. He’s wondering how smart of a move [Jon and Dany getting romantically involved is], because passion and politics don’t mix well. He knows the two of them getting together could be very dangerous."
It's true that passion and politics have not mixed well on "Game of Thrones." If Robb Stark were around, he'd agree.
Is Tyrion really falling in love with Dany? Guess that was always a possibility, but it seemed more like a respectful friendship/partnership than romance. It would make that other Tyrion theory extra creepy, but hey -- incest has been part of this show since the first episode. So Dany has Jon, Tyrion, and of course Jorah Mormont in love with her. She's creating quite the harem. #MotherofFriendZones
"Game of Thrones" finales love to give us loaded looks to analyze. 'Memba Littlefinger and Sansa in the Season 6 finale? Also Jaime and Cersei? The upcoming Season 8 finale may do the same, but seeing as it's also the series finale episode, hopefully it doesn't leaving us with too many lingering questions.
"Game of Thrones" Season 8, the final season, premieres in the first half of 2019 on HBO.
