Of all the mysteries that lie north of the Wall, the greatest of all is LOVE. TMZ has just released pictures taken earlier this month of Game of Thrones' Kit Harington and Rose Leslie, a.k.a. Jon Snow and Ygritte, enjoying each other's company at London restaurant Rossopomodoro without the impediments of rope, celibacy oaths, or bitter north-of-the-Wall cold. Though the photos only show the two holding hands (at a possibly unintentionally artsy Dutch angle), some loose-lipped witnesses report that Harington and Leslie were "sucking face" over their antipasti. So did Jon pull a knife on Ygritte in the middle of the night? Unclear, but it looks like he did pull a nice pinot from the wine cellar!
It's a well-documented fact that pretending to be vampires has a way of bringing co-stars together (and, yeah, driving them apart), but this is the first time we've seen the aphrodisiac combination of stinky pelts and frostbitten genitalia work its magic on two attractive young thespians. With Season 3 already in production, and Harington and Leslie likely making dry-hump snow angels in the Icelandic tundra as we speak, concerns are running high about the nearby polar ice caps and about the contributors to fuckyeahwildlings.tumblr.com being able to withstand the heat of this romance.
Double hat-tip to TMZ for not only breaking this story, but for giving us solid evidence that they should probably start recapping the show come Season 3.
Still if Ned Stark found out about this, he would lose his head.
