Seeing Drogon in this scene is a very powerful moment for both Jorah and Tyrion for different reasons. For Jorah, it’s this visible, visceral reminder of the woman he loves and is devoted to and is doing anything and everything possible to get back to, and Drogon is so much bigger than he was the last time he saw him that it’s almost like Dany looming even larger in his mind than she did when she was right in front of him. For Tyrion, it’s a completely arresting moment for him and it’s kind of an uplifting moment for him because they’d just been talking: “What’s it all for? It all turns into ruins.” And then, all of a sudden, something living and breathing from the past explodes into his world, and it’s almost like a beacon of hope for him that maybe these ruins aren’t all that remains, maybe there is something of this greatness that’s left in the world. – D.

The man is cold, brooding, sullen, deaf to humor. And those are his good points. Ser Jorah spent most of his waking hours pacing the forecastle or leaning on the rail, gazing out to sea. Looking for his silver queen. Looking for Daenerys, willing the ship to sail faster.
