Now that we’re about to start Game of Thrones Season 8, it’s a good time to review a few questions about Season 7.

So it looks like the answer is yes, Tyrion was watching Dany and Jon. But he wasn’t sad because he was jealous of Dany. He was sad because romance is pretty much doomed in this universe and he thought their love might only end in anguish and hurt.
I think it’s safe to say that Tyrion does not secretly have a thing for Daenerys and he was jealous of her and Jon.
In all honesty, I’d rather revisit just why Tyrion seems to have a connection with her dragons.
