This post contains spoilers for Game of Thrones, Season 8, Episode 2, "A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms."

Game of Thrones (opens in new tab) returned tonight with an episode that was almost entirely dedicated to how the various characters gathered at Winterfell to fight for the living in the impending battle against the Army of the Dead are preparing and spending what might turn out to be their last night on earth.

Arya Stark (opens in new tab) decided to lose her virginity to longtime crush, sexy blacksmith Gendry. Tyrion and company drank the night away. Tormund attempted to seduce Brienne (opens in new tab) of Tarth. Jaime Lannister (opens in new tab) successfully knighted Brienne of Tarth, in a beautiful moment had fans tearing up. And Jon "Expert at Terrible Time" Snow decided to break the news to his lover/secret aunt Daenerys Targaryen (opens in new tab) that he isn't a bastard after all because his mom is Lyanna Stark and his dad is Dany's big brother, Rhaegar Targaryen.

This is significant for two reasons: First, it means that Dany is Jon's aunt (opens in new tab) and they've been engaging in loads of incest for a while now. Second, it means that Jon is the true heir (opens in new tab) to the Iron Throne. Dany was exclusively concerned with the latter and Twitter had thoughts about that. Here are some of the best Twitter reactions to Dany's reaction to the news.
