During the stunning "Game of Thrones" season 7 finale, we saw a mysterious scene in which Tyrion Lannister looks at Daenerys' room's door while Jon is having sex with the Mother of Dragons. Apparently, Tyrion is upset by Jon and Daenerys' love story. Let's see the most popular theories about this scene and how Peter Dinklage has explained it.

He's secretly in love with Daenerys

Obviously, the scene fueled gossip of Tyrion being secretly in love with Daenerys. We've several details that may support this theory:

  • Tyrion's look may be the look of a jealous man
  • Tyrion was responsible for sending Jorah Mormont far from Mereen
  • Tyrion is the one who suggested Dany to leave Daario in Essos
  • Tyrion was against Daenerys flying North to save Jon's group
  • George R.R. Martin's original outline for the books featured a love rivalry between Jon and Tyrion

The huge problem with this theory, as Joanna Robinson recently noted on Vanity Fair, is that the show didn't earn such a twist.

We're not prepared to see Tyrion as Dany's secret lover, not to mention that Tyrion's look in episode 7 may easily be explained otherwise.

He's worried about their next moves

As Redditor PictishThunder recently pointed out, Tyrion may be concerned about "an affair changing the way they make their decision." Jon's relationship with Dany could harm his credibility towards the northern lords, and it makes everything more risky. Her love for Jon may lead Daenerys to act even more rash than usual, making Tyrion's job more difficult. Moreover, Jon's opinion is probably going to matter way more in the next decisions taken by Daenerys.

Peter Dinklage explains the scene

HBO released a video titled "Cast Commentary on A Union of Fire and Ice" which features a few statements by Kit Harington and Peter Dinklage about Jon and Dany's love story.

"I think [Jon and Dany] both know it's wrong. I think they both know it's gonna cause problems", Harington said, adding that their love story, on the other hand, "it's like a runaway train, you can't stop it happening."

Most importantly, Peter Dinklage himself commented the mysterious Tyrion scene. "It's dangerous for everybody involved.

I'm sure it's good for [Jon and Dany] - at that moment - but you don't even get the sense of how beautiful it should be. It should be, but it's not. This is 'Game of Thrones'; there's a long history of romance not ending well on this show." According to Dinklage's words, Tyrion isn't jealous. He is worried for Jon and Dany and the troubles their relationship may cause at the worst possible moment (because, you know, a vast army of wights is attacking the Seven Kingdoms while the war for the Iron Throne is far from being over).
