Last night's battle for the Wall was really just a vehicle for the showdown between star-crossed lovers Jon Snow and Ygritte. Oh, Ygritte: betrayed by her crow, she’s spent this season trying to patch up a broken heart by killing and pillaging her way to the Wall. But what would happen when she got there? A tender reunion? Total slaughter? All of the above! For their all-too-brief yet still emotionally gutting battlefield reunion, Game of Thrones Couple of the Week goes to Jon and Ygritte.
Why They Rule: Jon Snow, Ned Stark’s bastard, fell in love with a red-headed Wilding, Ygritte, while embedded with the enemy during Season 3. Ygritte, a fierce yet vulnerable warrior, taught Jon the ways of the world beyond the Wall. She also taught him about sexytime in caves. (Still one of the sweetest scenes in GOT history.)
Why They Rule: They are the Romeo and Juliet of Game of Thrones: two kids from opposite sides of the Wall, who just want to be together. He broke his celibacy oath for her, and she didn’t kill him, which is pretty much all you can ask for in this world. Every sharp arrow she loads into that bow is meant for Jon Snow — but here’s hoping the one aimed at his heart is actually Cupid’s.
Best Couple Moment: When the two finally locked eyes on the battlefield and you saw so many tortured emotions in Ygritte’s eyes and cheek twitch — relief, joy, pain, murderous rage, etc. I wanted to punch Ollie in the face for killing her right when Jon gave her that big smile and it seemed like she might lay down her weapon and run into his arms. At least she got to see those bouncy curls one last time.
