No One Knows How to Feel After *That* “Game of Thrones” Finale Scene
This is your official spoiler alert! Major spoilers for the Game of Thrones season seven finale are below.
The second-to-last GoT season was a wild one. The day the season premiered, fans were so excited to head back to Westeros that they crashed HBO’s website. And just last week, they were having such a hard time dealing with the intense penultimate episode that they were lamenting the finale before it even aired. Now that it’s over, there’s plenty to think and talk about until season eight arrives, but there’s one scene in particular that has everyone buzzing.
Okay, we warned you about spoilers, so you have no one to blame but yourself if you read this next line and we ruin it for you: On the GoT season seven finale, Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryen totally hooked up. That’s right: After a season of building tensions, they finally did the dang thing on the boat, and while some fans were screaming in excitement, there was also a fair amount confusion, because, well — it was confirmed by Bran that the two are definitely, for sure, related as aunt and nephew.
Needless to say, people are (hilariously) conflicted.

Some pointed out that Bran, who was revealed earlier in the season to be the Three-Eyed Raven and could see everything that happened in his absence, probably had another awkward conversation about this in his future.

But ultimately, some fans decided to embrace the pairing without shame.

Yes I know that Jon is Dany's nephew. Yes I'm still down for them doing their thang. 🤷🏻♀️ #GameOfThrones

It’s definitely a scene we won’t be able to stop thinking or talking about for a long time — which, it turns out, is a good thing, because season eight *might* not be on TV until 2019.
