The name-check came during a conversation between Tyrion Lannister and Jon Snow
Episode three of Game Of Thrones‘ seventh season, titled ‘The Queen’s Justice’, aired on Sunday night in the US (July 30), repeated on Monday (July 31) in the UK.
The episode featured a moment where Jon Snow (played by Kit Harington) and Tyrion Lannister (Peter Dinklage) are in conversation and, in response to Snow saying that “the dead are coming”, Tyrion remarks: “Why don’t you figure out what to do about my missing fleet and murdered allies, and I’ll figure out what to do about your walking dead men.”
The official Walking Dead Twitter have since responded to the reference with a shocked emoji.
