Brienne Of Tarth just got cruised. And we THINK she liked it…
Game Of Thrones gave everyone a LOT of reasons to be happy with the latest season six episode ‘The Book Of The Stranger’ not least of which because we FINALLY got to see two of the Stark children reunited. But the Internet was feeling ecstatic for another reason this week - a NEW POWER COUPLE!
And it came completely out of the blue, because when Brienne Of Tarth - the maiden warrior - rode into Castle Black with Sansa Stark she happened to lock eyes with a certain Wildling leader - and there were ACTUAL FIREWORKS!
Yes, the Internet is going crazy for the couple-that-hasn’t-actually-happened-yet-but-totally-should that is Brienne Of Tarth and the ginger bearded Tormund Giantsbane. Like, he could NOT keep his eyes off her…
And then later on at dinner we got POSSIBLY the greatest scene in GoT history when Tormund actually tried to flirt across the table with Brienne - by SAVAGELY eating a big chunk of meat. She looked scared… and a little intrigued! SHIP! SHIP! SHIP!
Desperately wanted a moment where Sansa talked about her own fight. But. But still so happy. #GameofThrones— Leigh Bardugo (@LBardugo) May 16, 2016
Understandably everyone’s basically been losing it ever since…
I think Tormund sexily eating a large hunk of meat at Brienne is my favorite thing to happen in this episode of #GameofThrones.— Alyssa Rosenberg (@AlyssaRosenberg) May 16, 2016

love the dragons and stuff but if the rest of this season turns into a brienne/tormund romcom I won't complain— Mina Kimes (@minakimes) May 16, 2016
I've never "shipped" a thing in my life but OMG TORMUND AND BRIENNE IS A THING THAT NEEDS TO HAPPEN. #GameofThrones— Tom + Lorenzo® (@tomandlorenzo) May 16, 2016
I am 300% behind Tormund and Brienne as GOT's new power couple.— Alicia (@aliciaaaaah) May 16, 2016
Dolorous Edd's raised eyebrow at Tormund and Brienne had me in total splits #GameofThrones— Kruthika Bangera (@OnePintDown) May 17, 2016
#Briemund needs to happen!
