Almost every major Game of Thrones character cracked a joke during 'A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms'. For Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke), that joke came at Jon Snow's (Kit Harington) expense.

Like many others before her, the Mother of Dragons made a quip about Jon Snow's height, during a truce-making conversation with Sansa Stark (Sophie Turner) in the second episode of series eight.

Speaking of Jon, Daenerys said: "I know he's true to his word – he's only the second man in my life I can say that about."

"Who was the first?" Sansa asked.

"Someone taller," Dany replied, much to her and Sansa's amusement.

Like Dany and Sansa, viewers got a kick out of the Jon height jokes.

Below are just a few of their reactions:



Banter about height aside, the second episode of the final season also featured a surprising Gendry and Arya scene, a huge Night King reveal, and one character getting the knighthood they've always deserved.

Bring on next week's episode, where we're sure there'll be more huge character deaths than both Jon and Tyrion height jokes combined - if this trailer is anything to go by.
