Last night’s Game of Thrones was full of shocking moments, but the best part for many was the first half of the episode, as the men in the so-called Magnificent Seven marched to capture a wight and got to know each other along the way.

There was Jorah Mormont and Jon Snow discussing Longclaw, and Beric Dondarrion and Snow discussing death, but most importantly, there was the Hound and Tormund Giantsbane.

Tormund told the Hound that he couldn’t wait to make some babies with the woman who left the Hound for dead, Brienne of Tarth. But not just any babies. Great big monsters who would conquer the world.

Twitter users, who have been shipping this relationship hard for years, ate up Tormund’s inelegant but beautiful peon to the new love of his life.

Brienne has been less enthusiastic about Tormund’s affection, so it’s not a certainty they will get together. But there is no doubting the internet would explode if they did.
