Game of Thrones (2011) - Top 3 Best Chemistry Between Characters

Daenerys and Jorah Mormont

Daenerys and Jorah Mormont have the longest history together than any other pair of characters in Game of Thrones. Though their relationship had not been an outright romantic one, Jorah is the only constant person in Daenerys's life from the beginning of Season 1 to the end of Season 6. He became her protector and adviser from the onset of her Dothraki days and continued to be so during her invasion and rule of Qarth, Astapor and Meereen.

Why it may work
  • Both Daenerys and Jorah care for each other more than anyone else. Jorah is obsessed with Daenerys and keeps coming back to her even after multiple banishes. All he wants is to serve and protect her, to be by her side always. While Daenerys has well-wishers and supporters like Tyrion and Varys, nobody can love her more than Jorah does.
  • The trust that Daenerys has for Jorah exceeded everything else, which is why she was more hurt than angry when she learnt that Jorah had been spying on her.
  • The heartfelt farewell scene between Daenerys and Jorah hints that she might love him even though she didn't admit it. She admitted to feeling nothing when dumping her lover Daario. However, she cried on discovering that Jorah had grey-scale and tearfully commanded him to find the cure wherever it is in this world and then return to her, that she needed him by her side when she conquered the seven kingdoms.

Why it may not work
  • Daenerys is a Targaryen and is destined to be the Queen of Westeros, while Jorah, though from a noble house is just a warrior and a knight but no match for a dragon queen. Jorah can definitely become the Commander of the Queen's guard army, but not a king. Socially, the pairup of Daenerys and Jorah won't work, if she is to sit on the Iron Throne.
  • Jorah's age difference with Daenerys may make the whole pairing weird and even creepy, as he is old enough to be her father. But then you never know, this is Game of Thrones.
  • Jorah's grey-scale disease may take a while to find a cure for, and by the time he is back, Daenerys may have already got into a wedding arrangement with someone else like Jon Snow.
  • Since Targaryen's mostly marry within their clan, it makes more sense for Daenerys and Jon Snow to get married, now that we know that Jon Snow is a half-Targaryen. What is better than the Queen of Westeros marrying the King in the North.

Petyr Baelish / Littlefinger and Sansa Stark

Littlefinger and Sansa Stark have the second longest history among the characters in Game of Thrones. They first met in the Tournament of the Hand in Season 1 and they have come a long way till Season 6.

Why it may work
  • Sansa Stark and Littlefinger are more alike each other than they realise. The revamped version of Sansa is politically shrewd, cautious and calculative, qualities that she picked up from her mentor Littlefinger.
  • Both are ambitious, Sansa always wanted to become the queen even if it meant marrying a monster like Joffrey. Littlefinger always wanted to sit on the Iron Throne, something that he himself confessed to Sansa, that all his actions were driven by that one goal.
  • It is rare for a devious devil like Littlefinger to care for anyone but himself, but he does genuinely seem to care for Sansa Stark, though his affection is mixed with ambition, lust and longing for his lost love Catelyn Stark. When Littlefinger wants something, he gets it. He has already managed to plant seeds of doubt in Sansa's mind about Jon Snow's right as the King of the North. It maybe a matter of time before the master manipulator draws her back to his side.
Why it may not work
  • Sansa lost her trust in Littlefinger the day she was married off to Ramsay Bolton. While her fury and hatred may have subsided after Littlefinger helped Jon Snow win the Battle of the Bastards, it will be a while before her faith gets restored. If Sansa is as wise as we think she has become, she may never trust him again.

Jaime Lannister and Brienne of Tarth

Jaime Lannister and Lady Brienne were polar opposites in terms of character and moral values when they first met. But their long journey together back to King's Landing had life changing impacts on both of them. 

Why it may work
  • The affection between the two was clear in the way they constantly saved each other during their journey. He saved her from getting raped by their captors but ended up losing his right hand because of his cockiness. He also rescued her in the bear fight at Harrenhal. She rescued him a few times and brought him back safely to King's Landing, minus the hand of course.
  • Jaime and Brienne developed deep mutual respect and brought out the best in each other. Jaime saw the giant tomboyish woman for what she truly is - an honourable and devoted warrior. Brienne saw humanity and compassion behind his mask of arrogance and self-confidence. Their chemistry was more than evident each time they met or bade farewell to each other.
  • The only thing standing between Jaime and Brienne was Cersei. She always had a hold on Jaime but the wildfire explosion changed everything, leaving him disillusioned and betrayed. The love of his life had committed the very crime that had once pushed him to break his oath and slay the Mad King, earning him the lifelong name of oath breaker and king slayer. While it might not drive Jaime to kill Cersei, he finally seems to see her for the monster she really is.
Why it may not work
  • Jaime and Brienne are both knights who have dedicated their lives to service and have sworn to not marry. But then this is Game of Thrones, it doesn't take long for rules to change. It will be an ideal final season to see the two knights declare love for each other, let us keep our fingers crossed.

Honorary Mentions

  • Jaime and Cersei - They had great chemistry up to Season 3, but then it kind of faded away, maybe because Cersei became evil beyond redemption or Jaime became honourable.
  • Jon Snow and Ygritte - They were a great on-screen couple and polar opposites of one another. But their love was genuine and self-less, and extremely adorable.
