When Jon Snow and Daenerys First Met
Jon Snow and Daenerys first meet at Dragonstone, the birth place of Daenerys Targaryen and the power seat of House Targaryen.
Daenerys is expecting Jon Snow to bend the knee. Jon Snow refuses to honor the pledge his ancestor, Torrhen Stark made to Aegon Targaryen to swear fealty to House Targaryen in perpetuity. He reminds Daenerys that her father burnt his grandfather and his uncle alive at the Red Keep. So he doesn’t feel any allegiance towards Targaryens. Daenerys asks for forgiveness for all the crimes her father has committed against the Starks. She requests Jon Snow to not judge a daughter by the actions of her father.
Jon still refuses to bend the knee and tells Daenerys that her war against Cersei is meaningless as the Army of the Dead is marching upon the living and she will rule over a graveyard if she doesn’t help Jon to defeat the Night King and his army of the dead. Daenerys claims that she is the rightful heir to the Iron Throne and all the years her faith in Daenerys Targaryen is what has kept her going through all the hardships she has faced.
Later on, they exchange many glances full of admiration towards each other. Jon Snow is touched when Daenerys says that she will let Jon mine the dragonglass and will provide whatever help he needs for that. Daenerys is touched by his bravery to come alone to Dragonstone knowing that he could have been captured by her army or burnt alive by her dragons but he showed faith in her.
Jon Snow and Daenerys Inside A Cave At Dragonstone
In the episode Spoils of War, Jon takes Daenerys inside a cave beneath Dragonstone. He shows Daenerys the dragonglass he will be mining and paintings made by Children of the Forest. Daenerys is amazed by looking at them.
Jon also shows her the paintings of White Walkers made by the Children of the Forest. Both of them are standing very close to each other. You can feel the heat and sexual tension between them.
When they are coming outside from the cave you can see the Fire and Ice together, only that the Fire is on the side of Jon and Ice is on the side of Daenerys.
Such is the amount of trust building between them that Daenerys asks Jon for advice after she hears the news about Jamie Lannister taking the Highgarden.
Jon Snow, Daenerys and Drogon
Daenerys is further pulled towards Jon when she flies back from the Loot Train Battle to Dragonstone. Drogon bonds with Jon Snow and Daenerys is impressed with that. It probably reminded her of the time when she took her first ride on Drogon.
Further, when Jon Snow is leaving for Eastwatch, Daenerys fondly tells him that she has grown used to him.
The Frozen Lake Battle and Losing Viserion
Daenerys wins Jon Snow’s heart by coming with her dragons to rescue him and others from the Night King and his army of the dead in Beyond The Wall. Jon Snow tells Jorah Mormont and others that Daenerys is their only chance to get out of there alive. She comes swooping in at the last minute and saves them except Jon Snow who is later saved by his Uncle Benjen.
Daenerys loses Viserion in the battle. Jon understands what Daenerys’s dragons mean to her and is pretty mad at the Night King.
When everyone thinks Jon is dead she asks Jorah to wait a bit longer. When Jon comes back to Eastwatch on Benjen’s horse she probably realizes that she has feelings for him. She is also taken aback when she looks at Jon’s wounds from getting stabbed by the men of the Night’s Watch.
When Jon wakes up he expresses his condolences on losing Viserion and he wishes that they had never gone beyond the wall. Daenerys says she isn’t sorry as you have to see it to know it. He calls her Dany which she doesn’t perhaps like as her brother Viserys used to call her Dany. Then he calls her his Queen upon which Daenerys breaks down. She says, “I hope I deserve it“. Jon assures her by saying, “You do“. Both hold hands and have a moment together.
