If you watched Game of Thrones on Sunday, your heart was probably going pitter-pat right around this moment when Tormund "Wildling" Giantsbane made all the eyes at Brienne "Stark Protector" of Tarth:

Obviously, everyone was shipping the hell out of these two immediately. And now, episode director Dan Sackheim has confirmed that yup, that totally was meant to be an eye-f*cking. Sackheim told TV Guide:

I wasn't even sure that when I delivered the episode it was really clear. It was like a fun little bit, but I wasn't sure it was really clear that he had these amorous feelings for Brienne. I'm always amazed what fans pick up.
