Read about how "Game of Thrones" shot Dany and Jon's sex scene, and feel awkward about it for a few minutes
It’s been a full day, so it’s no longer a spoiler to say that Dany and Jon have sex during the season finale of Game of Thrones. This is literally all anyone has talked about for a full day, myself included, and I think the whole world knows that Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryen did it on the S.S. #SexBoat. This is the world we live in now.
Eventually, someone will get around to telling them they’re related — aunt and nephew, in case you’ve forgotten — but for now, let’s just focus on their beautiful moment together, and exactly how it played out on the set of Game of Thrones.
Their lovemaking was also super simple, and that was the point.
(Whispers: Except that we want to linger on it. Pretend I put a .gif of Jon Snow’s butt right here, but I’m not going to, because I haven’t figure out if that’s kosher or not to share.)
While the scene might not have been as hot and steamy as we were hoping, there was a lot of sexual tension there just from them and their longing looks, and that was what Podeswa was going for.
Wow, I can’t fight this ‘ship either, so I glad I’m not alone! Did you ever think you’d find yourself rooting for an aunt and nephew to make it work? Yeah, same! You can read the whole IndieWire interview — including some talk about Rhaegar and Lyanna — right here.
