Jorah Has A Chance To Reunite With Daenerys Again On 'GoT'

Game Of Thrones fans are most excited about Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryen meeting to come in "The Queen's Justice." Yet, there's another potential meet up that could occur in Season 7 for Daenerys — and, while it's far less exciting, it could make for a rare heartwarming moment on the HBO series. With Sam attempting to cure him, Jorah could reunite with Daenerys on Game Of Thrones. With Ser Jorah Mormont last seeing his beloved Khaleesi during Episode 5 of Season 6, the pair hasn't actually been apart for too long during their third separation. Yet, thanks to Jorah's devotion, Sam's (non-dragonglass) treatment, and HBO releasing Jorah's letter to Daenerys, it would be a whole new level of cruel (for him) if these two didn't reunite before Season 7 ends.

While Jorah is utterly and completely enamored with Daenerys, you can't really say the feeling is mutual. Yet, she was moved to tears when he revealed that he had greyscale and professed his love to her in Season 6. Dany commanded him to heal himself and then to return to her, saying, "When I take the Seven Kingdoms, I need you by my side." So when Jim Broadbent's Archmaester Ebrose told Jorah there was no hope for a cure, it was no wonder Jorah solemnly began writing a letter to Daenerys.

Although his letter was unreadable during the episode "Stormborn," HBO released a legible version for fans to see. In it, he kind of confirms that he planned to kill himself if Sam hadn't come into his cell with an offer to save him, writing, "I only wish I could've lived to see the world you're going to build." And then he writes what every Game Of Thrones fan has known for seasons, "I have loved you since the moment I met you." While Jorah's steadfast devotion to Daenerys has sometimes (err, maybe a lot of times) come off as creepy over the years, his earnestness in what he thought would be his last letter to her is more genuinely heartbreaking than pathetic this time around.

Jorah's unrequited love for Dany has occasionally impaired his judgment, but there's no denying the fact that after his transgression in Season 1, he has been her most devoted servant. (Sorry, Tyrion.) He has offered her sage advice since the very first episode, which helped her grow into the powerful leader that she is today. He also says things to her that others might fear to say, is still a pretty badass fighter, and brought her Tyrion Lannister — whom she chose to make her Hand of the Queen. So Dany didn't tell Jorah she needed him by her side to make a dying man feel better, she truly meant it.

Game Of Thrones is not really known for happy moments, but by focusing on Jorah in the first two episodes of Season 7, it seems the series is leading up to one of two things: Killing Jorah tragically right before he gets to meet up with Khaleesi again or having him return to Khaleesi's side. While the latter scenario seems more feasible — and would be more compelling for those who cried over Jorah's letter — don't expect it to become third time's the charm for him. Sure, Jorah might finally make it back to Daenerys in good health and in her good graces, but the chances of him surviving much longer after that seem slim since it would be quite poetic to have him die serving his queen one last time.

As for some spoilers, Winter Is Coming reported that Jorah actor Iain Glen was spotted filming in Iceland with Kit Harington in January. That means he could be going beyond the Wall in Season 7. With Jon and Daenerys meeting one another and Jon's BFF Sam being the reason Jorah is saved, it would make sense that he would join the King in the North on a mission. (Plus, he could hang with his little cousin Lyanna! — you know, if she accepts him after he fled Westeros for slave trading.) And the best way for him to embark on a Northern mission would be to meet up with Daenerys first.

While it's sincerely doubtful that Dany will ever reciprocate Jorah's deep feelings, their reunion would make for a tender moment of friendship — and viewers need those moments to balance the carnage. So with Sam potentially figuring out a cure for grayscale quicker than expected, Jorah could be back with Daenerys before you know it. Just don't count on that warm and fuzzy feeling lasting for too long. This is Game of Thrones after all.
