Kit Harington and Emilia Clarke dating news have been around since they played the role of characters with a complicated relationship as lovers and rivals in "Game of Thrones." Although Harington, who plays the role of Jon Snow have been fairly public about his relationship with fellow "GOT" actress, Rose Leslie, a lot of fans still can't discount his possible relationship with the "Me Before You Actress." Now that the popular and highly successful HBO series is about to run its final season, will Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryen end up with a happy ending, in reel and real life?

Or will the fans have to accept that the chemistry of Harington and Clarke are simply for show?

Given the fact that "Game Of Thrones" season 7 is not focused on the love story of its characters, fans who want to see Kit Harington and Emilia Clarke in romantic scenes may have to manage their expectations to avoid disappointments. In the latest "GOT" trailers, no hints of a love story have been revealed, only that of hunger for power, greed, deceit and an all-out war for the Iron Throne.

The controversial kissing photo - where it all began

According to reports, fans of Kit Harington and Emilia Clarke began to ship their tandem when a photo of them kissing made its round online. The said photo was not actually from "Game Of Thrones," but was an outtake from a Rolling Stone photo shoot.

The undeniable good looks and palpable chemistry of Harington and Clarke were more than enough to spur the fans' interest and imagination to see them in a love story in "GOT." However, it appears that it might be too late for Jon Snow and Daenerys to form a loving relationship in the series as it is already set for its final run.

Nevertheless, the fans are still hoping to see even a glimpse of a love story before the series completely closes its chapter.

The other woman - Rose Leslie caught in the middle

While Kit Harington and Emilia Clarke dating news have been circulating online, there is a woman in the former's life who is reportedly trying not to be affected by the said rumors.

That woman is Rose Leslie, who is reportedly the girlfriend of the "Game Of Thrones" actor to date.

According to sources close to the couple, Harington and Leslie have been trying their best to keep their relationship low key. However, the constant rumors about Harington and Clarke dating have reportedly been a source of petty fights between the couple. Reps for the "GOT" season 7 stars have yet to give an official statement about the real score of their relationship.
