Jon And Dany's Relationship Is The Whole Point Of "Game Of Thrones", According To GRRM

    This is canon.

    Ever since Jon and Daenerys met in Season 7, Episode 3 of Game of Thrones, fans have been divided over how they feel about their interactions.

    It was a huge deal to see these two major characters come together at last. A lot of people were really excited – and many started shipping the pair (if they weren't already).

    Season 1: Ew Jaimie and Cersei are siblings, incest is gross. Season 7: GOD DAMN IT JON FUCK YOUR AUNT DANY ALREADY #GameOfThrones

    In a few short episodes, their relationship has progressed on both personal and political levels. They are falling in love and forming an alliance – and Jon Snow even bent the knee.

    I've never rooted this much for incest, I've never rooted for any incest. What is #GameOfThrones doing to my morals…

    A lot of people are REALLY into it, against their better judgment.

    Me: incest is wrong Also me: when are Dany and Jon going to get together #GameOfThrones

    While others just think it's pretty icky.

    Spoilers: Can they stop this Jon and Dany nonsense it's gross #GameOfThrones

    Others still think it's forced, or too cheesy. Some people have been comparing it to fanfiction, and suggesting that because the show has passed the books, the plot isn't what George R.R. Martin would want.

    #GameOfThrones is looking straight outta fanfiction. Call George!

    But according to an interview with Game of Thrones director Alan Taylor, who directed episodes in the most recent season, as well as the first, Martin once revealed that Jon and Daenerys meeting was the whole point of the series.

    Speaking to the New York Times, Taylor added, "It was absolutely clear to [George] that within this sprawling scale the whole story was coming down to this partnership."

    So there you have it, folks. Love it or loathe it, it looks like the relationship between Jon and Daenerys will be in the books – and is here to stay in the show.

    At least until something awful happens to one or both of them. Because this is Game of Thrones... you know the drill.
