'Game of Thrones': Will Daenerys and Jon Snow Unite Next Season?
Emilia Clarke weighs in on her character and Season 7.
— -- While some "Game of Thrones" fans are talking about all the deaths from last night, some are harping on one of the closing scenes, where we found out more information on the true lineage of Jon Snow.
Snow is not the son of Ned Stark, but of his sister Lyanna. There are allusions to the idea that he may be the son of Rhaegar Targaryen, Daenerys’s older brother, but that is not explicitly stated. Rhaegar kidnapped Lyanna, so that would be the likely choice, though "Thrones" is prone to leading audiences one way then taking them another.
If that's the case, then Daenerys, the Mother of Dragons, is Snow's aunt and he's part Targaryen.
Emilia Clarke spoke to Entertainment Weekly about the possible turn of events.
First, Clarke opened up about heading to King's Landing at the end of the episode. She's gunning for the Iron Throne.
"She’s got the dragons. She’s got the manpower. She’s got the ships thanks to the Iron Born. So there’s nothing else to do. She’s got to go now. Iron Throne!" she said.
More importantly, Clarke touched on the whole R+L=J fan theory, which claims what we most likely saw in the episode. Could there be a union of forces between Snow, who now leads the North, and his Aunt, who is coming to run the Iron Throne and King's Landing? They are family, so why not?
"I just don’t know," she said. "Those rumors have never been substantiated within the 'Game of Thrones' circle. It’s never been said. So I don’t know. I could kill him. He could kill me."
She also said what all "Thrones" fans are thinking -- they don't know they are related and haven't even met yet!
"He could be dead before we even meet," she added. "I could be dead before we even meet. Arya could kill us both! You never know! Anything’s possible. All I know is winter is coming … and I’m bringing the heat!"
