About

Right Proper Lad refers to a catchphrase from a comical image-based recap of the fantasy television series Game of Thrones episode "The Queen's Justice." The line has since become a catchphrase among Game of Thrones fan communities.

Origin

On July 30th, 2017, the third episode of season seven of Game of Thrones aired on HBO.[1] In the episode, two characters, Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryen, share a contentious meeting about who will rule the kingdom and how to deal with the ongoing issue of the walking, frozen dead (video below).



The following day, on July blogger and TV reviewer Chrys of ChrysReivews.com uploaded a series of image macros, humorously recapping the meeting between Jon and Daenerys, to her website.[2] In the review, there is a screencap of the scene that features the character Davos referring to Jon as a "Right proper lad," and Jon echoes, "Right proper" (shown below).

Since the initial post, "right proper lad" has become a catchphrase and copypasta on Reddit. Generally, people will refer to characters that they like as a "right proper lad" or "right proper [noun]" (examples below).
