Watch Kit Harington and Emilia Clarke Gag Over THAT Controversial Scene

The record-breaking Season 7 finale of Game of Thrones gave fans what they wanted in more ways than one. The sexual tension between fan favorites Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryen reached a climax, leading them into each other’s arms and Daenerys’ bedchambers.


The highly anticipated moment evoked a wide-range of reactions from satisfied cheers to grimaces of disgust. Regardless of where their reaction fell on the spectrum, fans reacted strongly. And they weren’t the only ones.




In a behind-the-scenes commentary for HBO, actress Emilia Clarke and actor Kit Harington offered up their reactions to the infamous relationship between their characters.

“I think it’s an inevitability from about halfway through the season that Jon and Daenerys will fall into bed together,” Harington said.


While the inevitable and intense connection between the two characters, both of whom have persevered through hardships, may have created the illusion of a “happily ever after,” fans, as always, should remain wary.


“I think they both know it’s wrong,” Harington added, gagging. “I think they both know it’s going to cause problems. But it’s that thing, when you suddenly feel that deeply about someone and you go through these events together, it’s like a runaway train.”

Emilia Clarke’s reaction was more critical, emphasizing the whole family-factor complication in their relationship.


“For us as actors, it’s just weird. The reality of what they are to each other, I don’t know how that’s going to… I think [gags] might be the reaction.”


Peter Dinklage, whose character was seen ominously creeping on the duo during their lovemaking, voiced his reaction to the scene.


“It’s dangerous for everyone involved,” he said. “I’m sure it’s good for both of them in the moment, but you don’t even get the relief of how beautiful it could be or should be it’s not. It’s just, it’s not good. But it should be, but it’s not.”

While the compatibility of both characters (you know, putting the family relation aside) may make them appear as an ideal and incredibly powerhouse couples, Dinklage brings up an important argument.


We’ve already seen glimpses of disapproving reactions towards the budding romance between Jon and Daenerys. Whether it’s from jealously or fear of power displacements (Dany has already taken Jon’s advice more often than that of Jorah or Tyrion), the commitment between the pair will undoubtedly change relationship dynamics on both sides.


As Dinklage adds, “It’s Game of Thrones. It’s a long history of romance not ending well on this show.”
