A lot of shit is scheduled to hit the fan when Game of Thrones Season 8 premieres in April, including revelations that Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryen – military allies and newly-minted lovers! – are aunt and nephew.
The actors discussed the weight of this information with TV Guide, as did showrunner D.B. Weiss.
“From a dramatic standpoint, it makes things interesting, because the story is no longer about who Jon’s parents are,” Weiss said in the interview. “It’s about what happens when Jon finds out.”
