AUGH, I know it’s been ages since it aired but I cannot get over this scene because my god, their FACES. Their BODY LANGUAGE.
I mean okay, the literal second the words “I can’t believe you’re real” leave Jorah’s mouth his face just FALLS and it is so PERFECT because you can see ‘fuckfuckfuckfuckfuck’ scrolling through his brain, not because it’s something he shouldn’t have said, but because saying it revealed too much. And then Dany lets out this little huff of breath and looks away and he knows that she realizes what he really means, knows now just how in love with her he is. If that gif was just a little longer you’d see how after his head just drops like that he brings his fists to his mouth, just for a second, almost as if he’s praying, and he’s out of focus in the background but it’s still perfectly clear that he’s upset that he BETRAYED himself like that, and he’s steeling himself for whatever she’s going to say next.
And jesus jones the things that happen with Dany’s face in the span of about 2 seconds. Just. God. She is so at a loss. Daenerys is used to awe, they’ve just been talking about respect and fear, but love? From this man?
So then Dany makes the decision that they are going to ignore what he just said, and they try to go back and be all business, but Dany’s voice BREAKS when she asks what he would advise, and Jorah twists his body away from her and puts a hand to his face and oh my god I love that so much I can’t stand it. He is so EXPOSED that he has to physically gather himself back up. And the shot is set up so that they’re at opposite sides of the frame and there’s all this SPACE between them but they’re both incredibly hyper-aware of each other and it’s all just so painfully, deliciously awkward.
