You might think you're the biggest Game of Thrones fan, but you're wrong; that title belongs to Jason Momoa, the actor who played Daenerys Targaryen's rugged Dothraki husband, Khal Drogo, before his untimely death. (Sorry to bring up such traumatic old memories, but we promise it's relevant!) Though his character's arc sadly came to an end at the end of season one, Momoa has followed the series closely and — like the rest of us — still carries a torch for Khal Drogo and his khaleesi.
Momoa has been watching the show religiously since its emotionally exhausting season six premiere, and proved that Drogo's love for Daenerys will never die with a series of supportive Instagram snaps. "My baby holding it down," Momoa captioned a now-deleted photo of Daenerys, who stopped a new khal's sexual advances by mentioning her history as Khal Drogo's queen. In a follow-up snap of Dany's fierce speech, Momoa exclaimed: "That's right baby you tell him!"
Then, he documented his entire experience watching episode six with a series of snaps.
"Greatest role I ever played. I love watching the Moon of my life f*ck sh*t up," he captioned another picture of Daenerys:
Finally, he made us laugh with a cheeky post about Dany's dragon, Drogon: "Wish we would have met. I think we have a lot in common. Unfortunately your mother killed me with a pillow. It's hard to explain."
Understandably, our hearts broke into tiny pieces. While we wish that Momoa (and thus, Drogo) were still on our screens for every Sunday night episode, his sweet support for his former castmates is a pretty good consolation prize. Daenerys will always be the moon of Khal Drogo's life, and we're thankful he likes to remind us.
