Game of Thrones (GoT) fans may be in for a treat next season, as Jason Momoa, who played Khal Drogo in the first season of the series, was recently spotted in Northern Ireland-one of the locations being used in the popular series. And the actor wasn’t just lounging around to drink Guinness and eat shepherd’s pie, as Momoa was also spotted hanging out with the crew of GoT.
After playing Daenerys’ love interest for a very short season one, Khal Drogo met his untimely demise at the hands of a pillow to his face. His death, which shocked many, was quite unfitting for such a character who represented so much strength. A recent photo, which was shared by Jason Momoa himself, showed the actor at a bar alongside some of the GoT showrunners.
But what got the fans rattled was not the photo, but Momoa’s cryptic caption for the image which was ALOHA DROGO. The Instagram post can be seen below.
Fans have already begun reacting to the post, sharing their excitement and anticipation for any confirmation that the rumor may be true.
Rumors are popping up that Khal Drogo is coming back to GOT in Season 7 and I will do some witch doctor chanting to make it actually happen.

I don't know how they're going to depict it but yes I am excited as hell to see Jason Momoa back as Khal Drogo

Fan site, WinterisComing confirmed that the series is not in the process of shooting right now to wait for the winter months, but Momoa could still be there for the pre-production phase, which is already running. The site also mentions that Momoa has already used Aloha Drogo in other recent snaps, although these images have since been deleted, prompting some fans to theorize that producers asked Drogo to take down the posts to avoid any spoilers.
Other fans are also quite pessimistic about the return, given that Drogo’s body has already been turned to dust, but GoT is also no stranger to resurrections, like Jon Snow’s (in)famous return to the series last season. Some are also speculating that Drogo may just appear as a vision before Daenerys goes off to war in season seven.
All rumors will be answered in April 2017, when winter finally comes to our TV screens.
