It’s still not time for the premiere of Game of Thrones season 8, but I have somewhat good news: Khal Drogo and Dany had a sweet reunion on the throne over the weekend and there are glorious photos to prove it. Late Sunday night, Emilia Clarke and Jason Momoa took to their respective Instagram accounts to share footage of their meetup, which included a recreation of the famous Dirty Dancing lift sans lake, which means they were 100 percent dry. Jason, who was sitting for the lift, made no attempt to actually raise Emilia for the recreation, a move that confused her. But all in all, both were delighted that The Lift even happened. “I’d like to take a moment to thank alcohol for giving me courage to attempt this. Ever,” she wrote on Instagram.
Other photos were taken at this cast party, which I refuse to call a wrap party, because Game of Thrones should be on forever. Here are Emilia and Nathalie Emmanuel (Missandei) hamming it up with swords and crowns with their voice and accent coach, Jan Haydn Rowles.
Jason Momoa was also seen hanging out with Game of Thrones showrunners Dan Weiss and David Benioff. Following pictures were shared on social media.

This sparked the rumours that Khal Drogo can make a surprise appearance in Season 8, as they can include some flashback scenes involving Khal Drogo and Daenerys.
Game of Thrones season 8, which will consist of six movie-length episodes, is set to premiere in April 2019.
