In Game of Thrones Season 7 finale, the long-time speculation among fans that Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) and Jon Snow (Kit Harington) are blood-related has been confirmed. When Bran Stark (Isaac Hempstead Wright) and Samwell Tarly (John Bradley West) both confirmed this, Dany and Jon were already in their intense romance. It was revealed that the real name of the supposed bastard son of Ned Stark (Sean Bean) is Aegon Targaryen, the trueborn son of Rhaegar Targaryen and Lyanna Stark. That makes them aunt and nephew, but Jon is the rightful heir to the Iron Throne.

However, a recent theory suggests that they might be closer than that.

The Targaryens

In George R.R. Martin’s book, Daenerys said that she could remember lemon trees in Braavos, where she grew up, but the fact is that they don’t grow there but in Dorne. “Game of Thrones” experts suggest that she might have lied about her childhood memories as she was hiding from the Targaryen enemies when she was younger. As what she told Jon, many men have tried to murder her, and she has been sold like a broodmare, raped and defied. It is said that she was hidden mainly because of the same reason as Jon Snow – she is actually the daughter of Rhaegar and not Aerys Targaryen.

Are they brother and sister?

For now, “Game of Thrones” fans believe that Dany is Jon’s aunt, but it could be that they are brother and sister.

During an interview with Vulture, Alfie Allen, who plays Theon Greyjoy, hinted about Jon’s true parentage and revealed how GRRM answered when he asked him about it. “You know, I asked [George] about who Jon Snow's real parents were, and he told me. I can't say who, but I can tell you that it involves a bit of a Luke Skywalker situation." For the “Star Wars” fans, they would certainly know about this as Luke, and Princess Leia had a brief romance before they learned that they are twins.

Multiple endings

HBO is highly known for accidentally leaking a few “Game of Thrones” episodes since the show originally premiered in April 2011. In fact, the show has been pirated billion times thanks to all fans from around the world. Recently, HBO Chief Casey Bloys spoke with Pennsylvania’s Morning Call and said that the showrunners have decided to shoot multiple endings of the show to avoid massive spoilers.

Given how famous the show is, it’s not impossible that there will be major leakage or spoilers that will come out before the finale.

“Game of Thrones” Season 8 is expected to return to the screens in 2018. The production has reportedly kicked off, but the producers previously said that it might take them until 2019 to wrap up the filming. Let’s just sit and relax on our Iron Throne for now while we wait for the show’s final season.
