If in case, you haven’t watched the season 7 finale of Game Of Thrones, this is the time to leave the page. For the article is dark and full of spoilers!

The much hyped Season 7 of the popular American show Game Of Thrones finally concluded and fans everywhere are going crazy!

The episode that ran for 79 minutes and 43 seconds was not only the longest episode of the series, but also the most viewed episode ever.

The episode, titled 'The Dragon And The Wolf', revealed some epic secrets, confirming theories that fans have been working on for a while. However, with messed up timelines and hurriedly delivered information, it was quite a disappointment as a season finale.

We finally saw Daenerys Targaryen and Jon Snow consummate their mutual attraction.

Even though this was something all Dany and Jon fans were rooting for, it was a little awkward as their love-making scene followed the scene where we learn about Jon’s parentage.

The season finale also confirmed the R+L=J theory with Bran having a vision of Rhaegar Targaryen and Lyanna Stark’s secret marriage.

What makes this situation interesting and awkward is the fact that the new lovers Dany and Jon are in fact aunt and nephew.

“Super Awkward!!”

Well, you aren’t the only one thinking that. In an interview with the Entertainment Weekly, actors Emilia Clarke and Kit Harington talked about how they felt about this plot twist.

When asked how she would react to the fact that her lover is actually her nephew, Clarke said. “Ewwwww! I think that’s how it’s going to go. I get the toothbrush.”

For Kit Harington, however, the main concern was how to make the romance look believable and realistic, sharing his concern, he said, “Usually you go into a movie and meet [your costar] for the first time and you develop that chemistry over that time,” Harington says. “But if you’ve known somebody for seven years and shared this incredible journey in your own lives together … we’re both kind of freaking out about it. I would be like, ‘What’s the sexual tension in this scene?’ and she’s like, ‘Stop talking about sexual tension!’ It’s a unique experience to be in as an actor and you know the world is watching.”

Also, since Jon... err... Aegon Targaryen, as he was named, is the true heir to the Iron Throne, it makes Jon and Dany each other’s competitors. Talking about this competition Clarke said, “I’ve worked so hard I don’t want to share that throne.”  The 30-year-old also added, “No. The throne’s big enough for one dragon bum, and that’s mine. That’s it!”

Talking about the competition, Harington says that it will be interesting to see how the lovers react to the news of Jon’s true parentage. “That part of it, I can’t predict. It could be them walking off into the sunset. It could be them killing each other,” he added talking about the impact it might have on their relationship.

Now that is something to look forward to next season.
