It can be safely said that Game of Thrones is a phenomenon. Ever since the mania of the dramatic series began, Jon Snow has stolen hearts for being one of the most loyal and brave men on the show. His first romance with a wildling woman named Ygritte was much talked about, and that’s when the catchphrase, “You know nothing, Jon Snow!” turned into a sensation.
Two seasons later, Snow has entered a new “attraction” phase with the Mother of Dragons, Daenerys Targaryen. Both the characters have wowed the audience with their heroism and sense of justice, so it’s no surprise that their rendezvous has created a flutter in many hearts. Ever since the two met, Khaleesi has been on a quest to get him to “bend the knee” in front of her. This has now, turned out to be the new slogan for the King in the North! It was interesting to see how in Episode 4, she almost convinced him to bend the knee — when she told him in the cave, “Isn’t their survival more important than your pride?” — which was also a callback to Snow’s dialogue from Season 5.
The fans of GOT seem to be quite amused with it and have filled social media networking sites with hilarious jokes and memes on the phrase. Steal a glance at some memes here.
