YES. SHE'S HIS AUNT. We've known this for a while, of course, because we know how being someone's aunt works (her brother is his dad—it's not that complicated), but it's nice for the showrunners to acknowledge it and that it might be a road bump in their romance.

"It complicates everything on a political level, on a personal level, and it just makes everything that could have been so neat and kind of perfect for Jon and Dany and it really muddies the waters," David Benioff added.
