Are You Shipping Brienne And Tormund On Game Of Thrones Yet?

Who said true love doesn't exist in Westeros?

The most recent episode of Game of Thrones was a roller coaster of emotions from start to finish. Jon reunited with Sansa, Theon reunited with Yara, Ramsay stabbed Osha in the neck, and Daenerys rained fire on the Dothraki patriarchy -- but no moment was more important to the Game of Thrones ethos than the look Tormund Giantsbane gave Brienne of Tarth over aged meats at the dinner table in Castle Black.

Tormund's got game.

Romance may have died in Westeros the moment Robb Stark watched his pregnant wife get ruthlessly stabbed in the stomach by Lame Lothar Frey, but thanks to Brienne and Tormund, we're starting to feel things again. Love is a beautiful thing, dear readers. Not to mention, the amazing moment was made even better by Brienne's total bewilderment and Dolorous Edd's supreme discomfort.

But TBH, Edd probably shipped them from the beginning because Edd's the kind of guy who just wants to see people happy. Edd is now the captain of this unlikely ship.

The sparks between Tormund and Brienne were so undeniable, fans immediately proclaimed Briemund (Torenne?) the best thing to ever happen to Game of Thrones. (Sorry, Daenerys. Your flame-resistant party trick is cool and all, but it's no match for TRUE LOVE.)
