Khal Drogo and Dany reunited over the weekend at a Game of Thrones cast party, throwing fans of the hit HBO series into a tizzy.

Emilia Clarke, who plays Daenerys Targaryen on the show, and her former TV husband Jason Momoa, took to Instagram on Sunday and shared footage of their reunion. In the photo, the Great Khal is seen holding the Khaleesi against a backdrop of the Iron Throne. It was an apparent nod to the famous lake scene from Dirty Dacning where Patrick Swayze hoists Jennifer Grey above his head.

FYI...This is the closest you'll ever get to me attempting 'that lift' from dirty dancing. Yes, my man is sitting. Yes, there's no lake. And yes, I have no idea I'm NOT being raised above his head. (Id like to take a moment to thank alcohol for giving me courage to attempt this. Ever.) @gameofthrones @prideofgypsies #nooneputsdrogointhecorner #imhavingthetimeofmylife #fyi #thankgodwegotthatmanonathrone #mysunandstarsintheireyes #❤️ #🔥

It fuelled plenty of speculation and wish fulfillment among Game of Thrones fans as they hoped for Momoa's potential return in the show's final season. His character Khal Drogo was killed in the finale of the very first season and if he does reappear in the next year's season eight, it looks unlikely it could be for anything more than a flashback. Momoa also shared similar Dirt Dancing-esque photos with Kit Harrington while Clarke posed with her TV right-hand woman, Missandei (Nathalie Emmanuel).

I'm so grateful to be apart of the greatest show on earth. I'm honored to be able to come to Ireland and celebrate with my friends. I'm just here for kisses and hugs and The black stuff 😜😜😜😜. mahalo David and Dan you are legends . Congrats to the talented crew and cast. Aloha j
