So yes, Jon and Daenerys are the perfect recipe for fan adulation. That’s why their meeting -- in Season 7, Episode 3, “The Queen’s Justice” -- was so loaded. It wasn’t exactly an arms wide open coming together, with Dany expecting Jon to bend the knee and Jon expecting Dany to easily submit to his White Walker destruction plan, but was fraught with the intense stares and obvious attraction fans hoped for.
Of course, there’s one hitch in this otherwise rosy relationship: Daenerys is Jon Snow’s aunt, so their union would be incestuous.
The murky morality hasn’t exactly stopped ardent supporters from wanting it, though. After all, Jon and Dany grew up apart from one another, with no knowledge that they’re of the same bloodline. Jon’s father -- though wildly hinted at it -- still technically hasn’t been confirmed to be Rhaegar Targaryen, Dany’s brother and lover of Jon’s for-sure mom Lyanna Stark. Their separate lives and identities may not totally excuse the rapturous desire for them to “just kiss already,” but in a show with ice dragons, faceless assassins, patricide, and a full-on brother-sister affair, is aunt and nephew really where we draw the line?
