If we're going to surrender Jon Snow, a.k.a. Kit Harrington, and his heart to any girl, it's going to be his on-screen Game of Thrones love, Ygritte.

Outside the bounds of Westeros and Essos, Ygritte is Rose Leslie, who first charmed us as housemaid and wannabe-typist Gwen Dawson on Downton Abbey. Their relationship may have been predestined for failure on the show, but it seems they've been hot and heavy off set for quite some time. According to Page Six, the two first got together in 2012, but split last year. Fortunately for those rooting for the pair, rumors of a reconciliation have sprung since the two were spotted at LAX together en route to Comic Con on Wednesday.

We'll forever be a slave to Harrington's smoldering stare and lush locks, but we're happy for them.
