You really think that if Bamon became romantic in s7, they’d really have only had one season of development? lol
Bamon have a deeper and more solid foundation right now than DE did when they forced that issue with the sire bond (Remember that? They went from SE promising each other forever with wedding imagery to DE having sex in like 3 episodes, tops. I don’t think it’s a coincidence that they ended DE with wedding imagery and promises of forever as well. Like after all this time, that still doesn’t register as a red flag for people?).
They absolutely could make Bamon romantic over the course of the season and still have it be a satisfying story to all but the folks who don’t want Bamon to happen in the first place, or who want to pretend that Bamon’s relationship is coming out of nowhere rather than the 6 season epic progression from enemies to reluctant allies to friends to trusted bffs to romance that it actually would be.
I personally think it’s more likely that we’ll get s8 and possibly more, but either way: It’s a good time to be a Bamon fan.
