Better watch your back, Jon Snow, Emilia Clarke says the Iron Throne is only big enough for *one* person
Blood! Dragons! Incest! Game of Thrones knows how to deliver the perfect finale. But now that the audience knows Jon Snow is the actual rightful heir to the Iron Throne, what will happen when everyone else finds out? The series has been setting up for Daenerys Targaryen to end up on the throne, and the King of the North did bend the proverbial knee to her. However, with this new revelation…everything is thrown for a loop.
But don’t worry! Emilia Clarke is still confident that Dany will end up on the Iron Throne — and only Dany.
In a post-episode interview with Entertainment Weekly, Clarke was quick to support their newfound love (but not so much the incest…); however, she’s not about to give up the throne to her new beau that quickly.
It’s nice to know that love hasn’t changed her — but she still knows what’s hers. Jon has been through a lot as well (he did die and all), but it doesn’t mean he can just come along and take the throne. These revelations will likely cause fracturing within their Stark/Targaryen alliance. On top of that, what will his siblings think as soon as this Targaryen news becomes public? — let alone the fact that he’s related to his dragon queen/lover. The news will shock all of Westeros, but here’s hoping everybody remembers that anyone on the throne is better than Cersei!
