Jon Snow (played by Kit Harington) is currently trying to convince the Mother of Dragons to help the north fight against the White Walkers while she is desperate for him to bend the knee and pledge his allegiance.
But the pair are also embroiled in one of the biggest will-they-won’t-they storylines with a romance slowly brewing.
And while Daenerys (Emilia Clarke) and Jon are still working out how they feel about one another, The Spoils of War director Matt Shakman has spoken out about their relationship.
Speaking to IGN, he teased: “It’s undeniable that there’s something happening between them personally, as well.”
Matt went on to reference their moment alone in the cave where they looked at the symbols left by the Children of the Forest.
“I think there is a lot of subtle chemistry happening there between the two of them, and even just Daenerys taking that tiny step forward to Jon before she asks him to bend the knee,” he continued.
“There’s a lot of tension in that that I think comes from just two great actors in that dark, intimate location.”
“The first time they come together they’re in a large, formal throne room hall, and now we’re getting a chance to see them alone without their attendants in a sort of quiet space.”
Showrunner David Benioff also teased their romance, adding: “To make it even more complicated, they’re starting to be attracted to each other.
“So much of that is not from dialogue or anything we wrote. it’s just the two of them in a small space, standing near each other, whilst just watching that and feeling the heat of that.”
The fourth instalment of Game of Thrones saw Daenerys go into battle against the Lannister army, which left fans fearing the worst after Jaime Lannister (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) was pushed underwater.
While it is not yet known whether he survived the fight, the show’s director appeared to accidentally reveal his fate in a recent interview.
Game of Thrones continues on HBO this Sunday in the US and will be simulcast on Sky Atlantic on Monday at 2am. Catch up on seasons one to seven on NOW TV.
