Kit Harington Says 'GOT' Incest Reveal Could Lead to Jon and Daenerys Killing Each Other

'Cause it's awkward when you discover you're sleeping with your aunt.


Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryen just had sex on Game of Thrones, which is awkward for many reasons—the least of which is that they're aunt and nephew. But to complicate matters further, we just found out that Jon has a bigger claim to the Iron Throne than Dany—and this could put a damper on their romantic relationship. In fact, it could lead to major acrimony.

"It could be them walking off into the sunset," explains Kit Harington. "It could be them killing each other." Either way, neither he nor Emilia Clarke seem to be shipping their characters' relationship. At least based on Clarke's reaction, which was "Ewwwww! ....I get the toothbrush."
