The King in The North and The Mother of Dragons bond over the kids.

Warning: Spoilers for Game of Thrones Season 7 Episode 5 “Eastwatch.”

There was some heavy petting going on in Westeros. And it was sorely needed.

After the fire and fury of the last episode of Game of Thrones, where Daenerys Targaryen incinerated the Lannister army, it was nice to get back to some normalcy — to make a human connection amid the carnage.

In this case, it was Dragon to human, as Jon Snow, the King in The North stroked Daenery’s Drogon. And we all know the way to a girl’s heart is through her kids.

But this was something more. It seems that like the mother of dragons, King Jon may have some Targaryen blood — which explains the bond with Drogon.

And certainly the Queen and King seem to be headed to a love match.

When Jon takes his leave of the Queen on a mission, he says: “If I don’t return at least you don’t have to deal with the King in the North anymore.”

Daenery’s responds by saying: “I’ve grown used to him.”

For the icy Daenerys, that is tantamount to saying “I have the hots for you, even though according to People Magazine, those furry rugs you are wearing for a costume came from IKEA.”

If there is a match to be made, there is a possibility that — shades of Luke and Leia — Daenerys could potentially be Jon’s aunt. That would up the ick factor moving forward. But interbreeding has never been an issue in the series.

In fact, brother and sister Jaime and Cersei Lannister are apparently expecting another child.

Queen Cersei broke the news to her brother this way: “Dead men. Dragons. And Dragon Queens. Whatever stands in our way we will defeat it. For ourselves, for our house, (and patting her stomach) for this.”

And it seems those HBO pirates demanding a ransom for hacking into the media company are no match for Cersei.

Last week’s pirated episode, which was dumped online days before airing still hit a record 10.2 million viewers, besting the season premiere.

So far the pacing has been spectacular, with faithful fans receiving a big pay off as the threads come together.

Back in the north where Jon Snow has left Sansa in charge, it seems Little Finger is doing his usual thing, sowing the seeds of chaos.

This time between Sansa and her sister Arya by planting a letter in his room that he wants Arya to find.

And showing how impressively deep the plot lines go in GoT, Gendry, bastard son of the late king Robert Baratheon has returned to help Jon Snow. We haven’t seen Gendry since season three when he was hanging out with Hot Pie and Arya.

But in what seems to be the only off kilter, time wasting sub plot so far, Jon Snow decides he will take a team beyond the wall to capture one of the walking dead White Walkers so he can bring it back to show his enemy Cersei that they have a bigger foe to face than each other.

“I’ve come to believe an accommodation with the dragon queen would be in our interests,” says Cersei.

The dragon queen is still doing some on the job training, it seems. As much as Daenerys says she is not like her cruel father, the more authoritarian her response becomes.

She also has a fetish for a man on bended knee.

After defeating the Lannister army she gives a soaring speech to the captured soldiers about how unlike crooked Queen Cersei she is.

“Join me and together we will leave the world a better place than we found it,” she says in words that could have come from Obama’s Yes We Can campaign.

The speech works great, but ends with “Refuse and Die,” which is more Sopranos, less Bernie Sanders.

At that point, and despite the protest of her adviser Tyrion Lannister, she has Drogon incinerate the two Tarly men who are fighting for Cersei. That includes Randyll Tarly and Dickon.

The execution has the intended effect, and restores some faith back into the storyline where characters of consequence are dispassionately dispatched in the service of plot.

Given that last episode’s dragon fight spared the lives of so many crucial characters including Jaime and his right hand man Bronn, GoT was looking suspiciously like an episode of MacGyver with the protagonists getting out of trouble conveniently in the nick of time. Thankfully, there are no paper clips in Westeros.
