Ranked From Somewhat Adorable To Downright Lovable
BUSTLE – Game of Thrones may gravitate toward ruthless stabbings and the occasional beheading, but underneath all that bloodshed lies the heart of some truly epic love stories. Naturally, many of those said love stories tend to take a backseat due to all of the other tens of thousands of storylines going on, but they’re still there nonetheless and help to make the HBO series the hit success that it is. Granted, even the best Game of Thrones couples have faced their fair share of ups and downs, most of which have ended due to death or betrayal. But hey, when you live in an area like Westeros, that’s the risk everyone kinda has to take.
So who are these mystery duos, you may ask, who have pierced our hearts with their inspiring and, at times, intoxicating romances? I suppose everyone’s opinion on the matter would vary slightly, depending upon your tastes in TV love interests. But on the whole, there are certain Game of Thrones couples that inarguably reign supreme over all others, regardless of your own personal prejudices. No one on this show is perfect. Far from it, actually. However, certain couples manage to get pretty dark close. So without further adieu, here is my official ranking of the top 11 GoT couples, ranked from least to most.
5. Daenerys Targaryen & Daario Naharis
Being a badass queen can take a lot out of you, which is what made Dany’s relationship with Daario so special. This guy absolutely worships the ground she walks on and constantly encourages her to go after what she both wants and deserves. And even though it may have started out as a purely sexual thing, they’ve developed a special connection, which is what made their sudden break-up all the more heartbreaking. Poor Michiel Huisman. (Also, call me?)
