As the White Walkers close in on Winterfell, it appears that two of the key protagonists of Game of Thrones have taken some time off before the battle we’ve all been waiting for.
Daenerys—the show’s murderous, megalomaniac dragon-queen heroine-dictator, and Egjon Snowgaryen—the hilariously stoic fur-draped identity-crisis-having northern-lad-done-well—seem to have given the undead army the slip and popped off for a quick springtime frolic in downtown Reykjavík.
The two were pictured on Emilia Clarke’s Instagram account today posing for a tourist picture with one of the wooden Viking cutouts that dot Laugavegur.
The photo was captioned #okmaybehereiseetheresemblance, referring to the Luke-and-Leia dynamic unfolding between the two.
But hopefully after this relaxing break, they’ll be back in Winterfell and refreshed enough for the zombies vs. dragons Game of Thrones showdown next Sunday. Unless we get yet another episode of people talking over seven seasons’ worth of grievances, like in the group-therapy reunion-fest of the first two episodes.
