Away from the undesirable news, Game of Thrones seems to be sniffing a fresh whiff of air as the last episode showed Jon and Daenerys holding hands, indicating love could be in the air.
Netizens are more than curious to know if there is any budding romance on the way.
Even though Jon and Daenerys are blood relatives, a romantic, amorous liaison is very much imminent what with Cersei and Jaime doing it and having children, and as the books say, incest between Targaryens is all the more acceptable, especially after their advent in Westeros.
Director Alan Taylor says that the relationship is expected, putting the fans in the anxiety mode. Alan told New York Times, “Yeah, I think it’s kind of hard to see that not happening. When we were shooting Season 1 and no one had seen the show yet, we were in Malta. Back then, there was not a lot of secrecy because nobody was paying attention, and George R.R. Martin came to visit and he was being quite open about his plans. He said something: That it really is all about Dany and Jon. I was surprised because at the time, you know, I thought, well Robb Stark’s going to be king next, probably. And who knows where this story’s g ng? But it was absolutely clear to him that within this sprawling scale the whole story was coming down to this partnership.”
He also added, “So yes, we’ve seen them take a big step in my episode. And I love this moment between them where you can sort of see it welling up for Dany, and it was great job by Emilia [the actress Emilia Clarke] of sort of feeling it and almost falling into it and drawing back from it. But yeah, it’s gonna happen.”
When questioned on the issue of incest he said, “Oh, you know, it’s worked for Cersei and Jaime. (laughs) Nothing went wrong there.”
