The sexual tension between Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryen has been mounting leading up to the Game Of Thrones Season 7 finale. Spoilers follow. And in case you thought the inevitable sex scene between Jon and Daenerys on Game of Thrones wasn't going to be uncomfortable, the Season 7 finale ensured that it was. Thanks to Sam and Bran reuniting and gossiping over the truth of Jon's parentage during Jon and Dany's sexy time on the boat, viewers couldn't even pretend for one moment that the pair aren't nephew and aunt. Yet, based on reactions from fans on Twitter, even that isn't enough to stop many viewers from 'shipping the ultimate power couple of Game Of Thrones, however full of (accidental) incest their union might be.
Season 7 had been leading up to the moment when Jon and Daenerys would act upon their growing romantic feelings for one another. And while the HBO series didn't confirm it until the finale, most fans knew that they were relatives before Bran and Sam swapped intel. Surprisingly, more people than not (well, at least on Twitter) seemed to accept the incest — even with the showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss choosing to have Bran narrate the boat sex scene with Jon's family history. Of course, not everyone is on board the Jon and Dany 'ship after that sex scene, but no matter what camp you are in, here is what Twitter is saying about the aunt-nephew sexy time.
Some Fans Are Pro Jonerys No Matter What
Other Fans Were Understandably Disturbed
There's Lots Of Justifying Going On
But Mostly People Are Loving It
Even Though It's Hypocritical
Some Fans Weren't Happy With Bran's Narration
And What About The Children??
Or When They Find Out?
But even with fans considering the aftermath, the general consensus is support for Jon and Dany. So yes, it's official: Jon and Daenerys are nephew and aunt and Game Of Thrones has converted lots of people to approve of (this, again, accidental) incest. And Jon Snow — I mean, Aegon Targareyn — still knows nothing.
