There's something feel-good-ery about actors on a movie or television show who play a fictional couple and get together in real life. Isn't there? You know, as long as they weren't already married or anything ... but let's not get into that. Let's get into the fact that love had once blossomed admist all the torture and violence and baby killings on the HBO show Game of Thrones. Jon Snow, played by Kit Harington, and wilding Ygritte, played by Rose Leslie, were reportedly a couple. But sadly it seems their fairy tale romance has come to an end. A while ago ...
Rumors were circulating that the two got together while filming Game of Thrones, but it seems we're only able to get confirmation they were once a couple because it's confirmed they've officially split up! How sad indeed. Not only was their relationship seemingly doomed in Westeros, it's doomed in our world too.
Fans of the show will not soon forget their forbidden romance, especially, um, the "lord's kiss" (hehe) and how Jon loved how Ygritte was "kissed by fire." But since this is Game of Thrones, and something tragic was bound to happen between the two of them, well ... it's just a shame they couldn't have gotten married and had a bunch of babies in real life to starkly compare to how dark and depressing and twisted the show they met on is.
"Rose and Kit are no longer together. Rose has a new boyfriend who is not in the public eye. She is eager to keep this relationship out of the spotlight," said a source.
So now what will Kit do since Rose has clearly moved on from their torrent love affair?
Duh, clearly he should hook up with Emilia Clarke, aka Daenerys Targaryen, and represent one half of the ultimate Game of Thrones power couple!
Seriously, no couple could encompass more badassery than a Kit & Emilia pairing. And could what may happen in real life in fact happen down the road in (unpublished) books 6 and 7? Jon's and Ygritte's affair ends, but then Jon and Daenerys get together and rule Westeros. Then Kit and Emilia would actually get together and prove how much cooler and hotter they are than Robsten! GoT fans' minds would be completely blown. The Internet would explode. I can't even imagine the memes and gifs that would come out of a Kit/Emilia romance.
It could happen. Right?
Are you sad to hear that Kit and Rose's relationship ended? Should they get back together or should Kit move on to Emilia?
