Who said true love doesn\'t exist in Westeros?
was a roller coaster of emotions from start to finish. Jon reunited with Sansa, Theon reunited with Yara, Ramsay stabbed Osha in the neck, and Daenerys rained fire on the Dothraki patriarchy — but no moment was more important to the
ethos than the look Tormund Giantsbane gave Brienne of Tarth over aged meats at the dinner table in Castle Black.
Romance may have died in Westeros the moment Robb Stark watched his pregnant wife get ruthlessly stabbed in the stomach by Lame Lothar Frey, but thanks to Brienne and Tormund, we’re starting to feel things again. Love is a beautiful thing, dear readers. Not to mention, the amazing moment was made even better by Brienne’s total bewilderment and Dolorous Edd’s supreme discomfort.
But TBH, Edd probably shipped them from the beginning because Edd’s the kind of guy who just wants to see people happy. Edd is now the captain of this unlikely ship.
The sparks between Tormund and Brienne were so undeniable, fans immediately proclaimed Briemund (Torenne?) the best thing to ever happen to
. (Sorry, Daenerys. Your flame-resistant party trick is cool and all, but it’s no match for TRUE LOVE.)
At first, fans were impressed with Tormund’s smooth moves.

I think Tormund sexily eating a large hunk of meat at Brienne is my favorite thing to happen in this episode of #GameofThrones.
Tormund sits on the Iron Throne of love, obviously.

me: hm Brienne and Tormund? Is this a thing? Do I… ship it?
Tumblr: the ship has left the harbor, we cross the narrow sea
Tormund/Brienne fanfic boom forthcoming, yes? #GameofThrones
Even people who don’t understand shipping started to ship them.
I've never "shipped" a thing in my life but OMG TORMUND AND BRIENNE IS A THING THAT NEEDS TO HAPPEN. #GameofThrones
Fans who were into non-canon pairings from the jump started to speak up.
Been shipping for Tormund + Brianne since the beginning.
love the dragons and stuff but if the rest of this season turns into a brienne/tormund romcom I won't complain
I don't ask for much, #GoT, but if there aren't more Tormund/Brienne scenes in the future, I'm gonna be pissed.
NO, WE DEMAND IT. You owe us for all of that Sansa bullshit last season, Benioff and Weiss.
