OK, let's get this out of the way first: There will be spoilers! If you haven't watched up to Season 8, Episode 2 of Game of Thrones, go and do that before reading ahead. But come on. You knew there'd be spoilers. This is about Game of Thrones, after all, and after Sunday night's episode, we couldn't avoid going into spoiler territory.
Now, I know we're only two episodes into the season so far, but holy mother of dragons so much has already happened. I could spend a good few hours discussing the bizarre mistake in the first episode of the season or trying to forget that scene between Arya and Gendry in episode two, but, uh, I don't want to do that.
No, instead, I want to talk about everyone's favorite Game of Thrones ship: Brienne and Tormund. (Or, after the most recent episode, I guess I should say Ser Brienne and Tormund.)
The love may be just a touch one-sided, but the memes are sure to delight us all.
Sprung.His face. That, my friends, is the face of a man who has decided to spend the rest of his life trying to woo that very tall, very strong woman.

#PrioritiesSure, everyone is probably going to die, but that doesn't mean there's no time for love. (P.S. Please don't let Brienne die, please please please I love her so much. That's me speaking. Not Tormund. Although I'm sure he feels the same way.)
For real, though.Like, I get it. Love is grand and all that, but... Shouldn't you be preparing for battle or something?
Shoot your shot.
