Showrunner David Benioff spilled a few “Game of ThronesSeason 7 spoilers in a recent interview ahead of the return of the show on July 16. He dished on the action sequences and talked about the major battle scene that happens. He also seemed to confirm rumors of incest between Daenerys and Jon Snow.

Battle at sea

Benioff shared his excitement about the changes in terms of battle sequences in Season 7. He said the installment features gripping and exhilarating action scenes unlike seen before in previous seasons. “There are magnificent action scenes, different from anything we’ve ever done before,” the showrunner told TV Insider.

Apparently, there is a “massive sea battle” that outdoes the Blackwater battle in Season 2.

Who gets involved in this battle at sea remains unknown. However, the “Game of ThronesSeason 7 trailer may have given a hint. The preview showed a ship on fire at sea and the Greyjoy siblings are on the burning ship. Fans may remember that in Season 6, Euron Greyjoy had vowed to go after his niece and nephew after they stole the ships.

Rumors have it also that Euron catches up to them and holds one of the siblings as a prisoner. The trailer hinted that Yara gets captured and Theon manages to escape the burning ship when he jumps into the water.

Jon Snow and Daenerys incest relationship in 'Game of Thrones' Season 7

A prevailing rumor claims that Jon Snow (Kit Harington) and Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) develop a relationship in Season 7. They reportedly sleep together while traveling at sea. This has yet to be confirmed, although Benioff may have hinted that this actually happens.

In the same interview, he mentioned that the installment will have “some surprising hookups.”

If this happens then Jon Snow and Daenerys commit incest. What makes it incestuous is the possibility that the new King of the North could be a Targaryen. A popular fan theory revealed that he is the son of Lyanna Stark and Rhaegar Targaryen, which makes Daenerys his aunt.

Of course, Benioff did not expound on his statement and “hookups” could mean several things. The showrunner could be referring to surprising alliances that happen in “Game of Thrones” Season 7. Enemies might agree to work together for one common goal, which is to defeat the oncoming threat of the White Walkers. But if the showrunner was indeed talking about Jon Snow and Daenerys’ relationship, then this will not come as a surprise. After all, siblings Jaimie and Cersei Lannister had three kids from an incestuous relationship.
