Khal Drogo’s Reunion With ‘Game of Thrones’ Pals is Seriously Adorable

Though his character has long left the show, Khal Drogo is very much still a fan of Game of Thrones!


Actor Jason Momoa who played the hunky exotic warrior is no longer alive in the series, however he is super close to his cast members as his recent escapades prove.


The gang had a mini reunion in Belfast a few days ago when the actor met up with his Game of Thrones alum.

He hung out with old pals including Kit Harrington, sharing a drink and what we imagine were some crazy conversation, which may have involved sports, the weather, and…perhaps even the gorgeous Khalessi whom they’ve both bedded. Who know! 


As Game of Thrones fans remember, Daenerys was initially involved with Khal Drogo and their relationship helped to morph her into the strong and fierce Khalessi that she is. As the recent season finale showed, her relationship with her nephew-lover Jon Snow is progressing rapidly so we’re quite sure she is moving on just fine.


Judging by their smiling faces, though, we’re guessing her name was left out of the conversations.

He also had a chance to reconnect with show runners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss. Judging by their smiling face, we can go ahead and assume that the down-to-earth actor has no ill feelings towards his character’s fate on the show.


Then again…David Benioff’s smile may just be hiding some pressure from Momoa’s huge hand wrapped around his neck.


Guess we’ll never know!

Momoa also had a chance to spend time with actors whom he didn’t see on set when he was on the show so long ago. Momoa posted the following photo of his embrace with actor Kristofer Hivju who plays the feisty fire-kissed giant Torment Giantsbane…also known as the potential maybe-one-day partner of Brienne of Tarth.


Also, may I point out, that Momoa’s post wishes luck to the crew and show runners as they begin filming the new season. The fact that Hivju happened to be there too gives us all the hopes possible of seeing his character make it out alive in the upcoming season.


Now, if Momoa himself could make an appearance on screen….well that isn’t exactly too much to ask for! At this point, given the controversial timelines and events of the last season (including the resurrection of a very much beloved dragon), then the reserection of Khal Drogo doesn’t seem that unreasonable. I mean sure, his deceased body was burned postmortem, but again….it’s Game of Thrones you never know what could happen.

Speaking of the Khaleesi, Momoa had a chance to meet up with his moon and stars played by Emilia Clarke. Clarke posted this adorably adorable photo on Instagram earlier this week along with this sweet caption. There is clearly no love lost between the pair (watch out Jon Snow). 


What perhaps is more endearing about this photo is the parallel between the pair off screen and on. Khal Drogo and Daenerys Targaryen are one of the few iconic couples on the show, though Mamoa left the series in 2012, leaving fans grieving over the pair’s separation. While we’ve been slowly warming up (or not) to the possibility of Daenerys and Jon, this adorable duo still warms our heart.


As mentioned, Momoa has kept up his support of the series, particularly when it comes to his former leading lady. Momoa shared his enthusiastic awe of his Khaleesi’s epic victory against the Lannister army when the fourth episode of season seven ‘The Spoils of War’ premiered earlier this August. 


He posted:

“FUCK ME. It’s been so hard for me not to talk about the greatest show on earth. And I don’t want to spoil anything for anyone So I have been taking it easy on the posts. But holy shit that was intense. Wish I was there to fuck shit up So proud of Dan and David the cast and crew of GOT Aloha DROGO. DRAKARUS … [Emilia Clarke] miss u mama your a badass super proud.”


I think it’s about time someone started a petition to help his character make a comeback on the show. While Momoa’s reunion with the Game of Thrones cast warms our heart, seeing it play out on screen would be even better.
