Game of Thrones actors react to the final scene of "The Dragon and the Wolf"
If you were glued to last Sunday's broadcast of "The Dragon and the Wolf", the season-finale episode of Game of Thrones, you certainly weren't alone.
Fans who subscribed to the R+L=J theory of Jon Snow's origins were elated when, through Bran Stark's visions and Samwell Tarly's detective work, it was revealed that Snow's true parents were a) Rhaegar Targaryen and Lyanna Stark and b) lawfully married.
Apart from being something that's been hinted at for several seasons, this tidbit also renders Snow (whose birth name was Aegon Targaryen) the true heir to the Iron Throne of Westeros.
It also makes the fact that Snow and Daenerys Targaryen, who are (unbeknown to them) really nephew and aunt, fell into bed together at the end of the episode so much more uncomfortable and fraught with tension.
Actors Kit Harington, Emilia Clarke, Peter Dinklage, and Isaac Hempstead Wright certainly think so.
