We all know by now that Jon Snow (Kit Harington) is actually a Targaryen and that his new, steamy relationship with Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) is–cringe–incestuous.
So now one of the big questions for Game of Thrones season eight: What will Dany and Jon do when they learn she’s actually his aunt? Our prediction: They’ll both freak out and vow never to do “boat things” again. But Harington has a different idea...
“I really hope that he just nods slowly and goes, ‘Damned right,’” Harington told The Guardian. “Something really horribly inappropriate, and you find out Jon’s had a really sick mind the whole time. That’s the way I’d love to play it. I’ll try it for one take, anyway.”
Wait...what?! NO! No, no, no. Absolutely not. Jon Snow cannot be OK with incest. We repeat: Daenerys—rightful heir to the Seven Kingdoms and Mother of Dragons and blah, blah, blah—is his legit aunt (she’s the sister of Rhaegar Targaryen, aka Jon’sreal father). Jon is King in the North, for goodness’ sake! He stands for all that is noble and right and is trying to save the Seven Kingdoms from massacre by the living dead.
We’re sure Harington was only joking. But even though we’re totally against this whole incest business, there’s still a tiny (OK, massive) part of us that ’ships Jany (sorry, Jon and Dany) so hard.
Maybe Jon Snow is a total weirdo deep down. After all, you don’t come back from the dead without a few screws loose, right?
