When Daenerys Targaryen and Jon Snow made love in the Season 7 finale of “Game of Thrones,” what went through our minds was the long-held speculation about her pregnancy. Daenerys believes that she can no longer bear a child. However, according to a popular theory, she eventually becomes pregnant with Jon Snow’s child. This speculation still warrants a confirmation, but if Kit Harington’s reaction to this probability is any indication, then we might see another baby born out of incest in Season 8.

Episode 7, Season 7 finale recap

Viewers immediately took notice of the sexual tension between Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) and Jon Snow (Kit Harington) from the moment they first met at Dragonstone.

Even Davos mentioned Jon’s attraction towards the Mother of Dragons, which Jon brushed off. Despite the formality of their interaction, fans still speculated that given the opportunity and time, the King of the North and the Mother of Dragons would act on this tension. Finally, they did it while on a ship bound for Dragonstone.

In Episode 7, “The Dragon and the Wolf,” Jon Snow knocked on the door of Daenerys’ cabin. She opened the door and they exchanged meaningful looks. Without uttering a word, she let Jon Snow inside. The next thing we saw, they were both naked on bed. Meanwhile, outside stood Tyrion Lannister (Peter Dinklage) who listened intently to the pair make love.

Daenerys’ pregnancy and death

That one night with the King of the North could break Daenerys’ belief that she would never have another child. According to the long-held speculation, this pregnancy could even lead to her death. She could die from childbirth. This is merely a theory, although Kit Harington seemed to confirm that Jon Snow will become a dad in “Game of Thrones” Season 8.

Kit Harington hints Jon Snow's fate as a father

According to The Express, the actor was at the Formula 1 race in Italy recently when someone asked him about Jon’s fate in the new season. One avid fan asked if the King of the North will impregnate Daenerys in the upcoming season. The actor slipped a cheeky smile, which could have been a hint at the possibility that Jon Snow will indeed become a father in the final season.

Perhaps Harington only smiled at the idea of his character becoming a father.

However, according to the publication, the actor is a veteran when it comes to keeping spoilers for the show at bay. Thus, his smile is cryptic of his character’s fate in Season 8.
