Warning: This post contains spoilers for Season 7 of Game of Thrones.
When the Game of Thrones producers promise that incest is coming, they aren’t messing around. Ever since Jon Snow (or shall I say Aegon Targaryen?) and Daenerys Targaryen met in the beginning of Season 7, there’s been some serious chemistry between the two, and their relationship finally came to a head on Sunday night’s finale when they finally hopped in bed together.
While the moment was certainly steamy, it was kind of ruined by the fact that Bran Stark and Samwell Tarly’s conversation about Jon’s real heritage was happening at the same time. And not only is Jon not a Stark, he’s also not a Snow: Since his mother Lyanna Stark was married to his father Rhaegar Targaryen at the time of his birth, he is a legitimate Targaryen and thus the true heir to the Iron Throne. Oh, and that also means he’s in bed with his aunt.
Clearly, the two aren’t going to be happy with this new development after having had sex. Kit Harington told EW that he “can’t predict” the characters’ reaction to finding out Jon’s true parentage. “It could be them walking off into the sunset. It could be them killing each other,” he said.
While we begin the long wait to find out what happens in Season 8 of Game of Thrones, here are the funniest Internet reactions to that sexy scene.
Season 8 can't come soon enough.
