While Cersei and Jaime Lannister have been an item for the most part of Game of Thrones, despite being brother and sister; it was a relationship that though made most uncomfortable, we accepted. But, when it was revealed that Daenerys Targaryen is technically Jon Snow’s aunt, we all felt more than uncomfortable knowing this fact as the two fornicated in the last season’s finale. While the two were blissfully unaware of their biological relation while getting frisky, we are wondering if this will be something brought up in the upcoming eighth season.
Actors Kit Harrington and Emilia Clarke talked about this in a recent interview:
“Jon is someone who plays by the book. He cannot lie. Finding out about Dany would be very hard for him.” – Harrington spoke.
As for Daenerys, this whole show has been her journey to reclaim the throne for House Targaryen. She clearly has feelings for Jon, but how would this knowledge affect her?
“Daenerys’s lifelong dream has been to avenge her family and claim her rightful seat on the Iron Throne,” said Clarke. “She truly loves Jon. Were she to find out about his title, it would cut deep.”
Either way, it will be an awkward discovery. Whether the two decide to stay together afterward will be something we will have to wait to find out. The final season of the hit HBO show will return in April and we’re all not ready for what is in store.
