SPOILER ALERT: This article contains spoilers from the Season 7 finale “The Dragon and the Wolf” if you haven’t watch it yet proceed with caution.
The Jon-Daenerys romance that blossomed earlier this season has finally taken the next level when they got into bed with each other “the Game of Thrones” way but fans had a mix reaction. Unsure whether to cheer for their chemistry or get weird out with the revelation that they are aunt and nephew.
Well, their fans aren’t alone with this weird scene. In a cast commentary video from HBO, Kit Harington and Emilia Clarke, who play the two lovers, aren’t entirely certain how they feel about it either.
“For us, as actors, it’s just weird,” Clarke said. “The reality of what they are to each other? I don’t know how that’s gonna…I mean, I think kind of (disgusted sound) might be the reaction.”

“I think it’s an inevitability from about halfway through the season that Jon and Daenerys are gonna fall into bed together,” Harington explained.
