All About Jon Snow Daenerys Sex Scene

In Sunday’s Game of Thrones Finale, we witnessed the epic Jon Snow Daenerys sex scene. Let’s take a look at what it meant for the actors, Kit Harington and Emilia Clarke, and for the Director, Jeremy Podeswa, to shoot the scene.



Jeremy Podeswa’s Take On Jon Snow Daenerys Sex Scene

Says Jeremy Podeswa, “With Jon and Dany’s scene, the important thing for me was that it wouldn’t be prurient in any way, that there’s a very strong undercurrent in that scene. It was shot very, very simply. It’s basically just one steady push in shot to Jon and Dany and then that very important look between them at mid-level. And then a one-shot looking at Jon, then looking down at Dany. It wasn’t about shooting a big lovemaking scene. Once they’re making love, that’s the story. There’s no reason to kind of linger on that.

He continues, “But the real story within the story, was actually what was going on with their eyes and what’s happening — there’s an understanding between them that even though they know in some part of them that they shouldn’t really be doing this, they cannot not do it. There’s some element of destiny that’s brought them together, and they can’t fight it.

Parallels Between Lyanna Stark and Rhaegar Targaryen Scenes

Jeremy Podeswa also talks about the parallels between Jon Snow Daenerys sex scene and the scenes showing Lyanna Stark and Rhaegar Targaryen.

The parallels are obvious, with both scenes centered on illicit, romantic meetings. “sIt was exactly as written in terms of the intercutting of those scenes,” said Podeswa. “It was also intercut with the younger Ned Stark and Lyanna telling the secret of Jon’s identity.”

All those things were meant to be interwoven, to give a kind of prismatic view of the history that brought Jon to this point, and Jon and Dany together in this sweep of destiny, in this sweep of history. It was very much written that way. My contribution to that was really making that cinematic and making this feel like a fluid movement through time as we’re seeing this all unfold.”

Emilia Clarke and Kit Harington on shooting Jon Snow Daenerys Sex Scene

Kit Harington, who plays Jon, told Entertainment Weekly about the filming the scene: “Usually you go into a movie and meet (your co-star) for the first time and you develop that chemistry over that time,” Harington said. “But if you’ve known somebody for seven years and shared this incredible journey in your own lives together … we’re both kind of freaking out about it. I would be like, ‘What’s the sexual tension in this scene?’ and she’s like, ‘Stop talking about sexual tension!’ It’s a unique experience to be in as an actor and you know the world is watching.”

Emilia Clarke, who plays Daenerys, agreed. “Yeah (I would say), ‘Would you just stop? Just give me some sexy eyes, don’t keep talking about sexual chemistry all the time. I love that when we get to the saucy stuff it’s a beautiful acceptance of a wordless … yep,” she said about the scene itself.”

We also saw the famous Jon Snow bum while they were at it.

Is Tyrion Jealous of Jon Snow?

Last Sunday’s Game of Thrones Season Finale was epic. There were so many important moments. One of them was Brandon Stark narrating the scene of Lyanna Stark and Rhaegar Targaryen’s marriage and the fact that Jon Snow is Aegon Targaryen, not Ned Stark’s bastard. As that scene unfolded we saw Jon and Daenerys finally making out and Tyrion standing outside Daenerys’s cabin looking all upset. Why did he react that way? Is Tyrion Jealous? Or is he sad?

Tyrion did not look happy when he saw Jon Snow walking into the cabin of Daenerys. He is an intelligent man and he knew that Jon has had a crush on Daenerys since Jon arrived at Dragonstone. But he did not anticipate Jon bending the knee to Daenerys and to make matters worse, Daenerys not telling her own hand about it. Tyrion comes to know about Jon’s pledge to serve Daenerys as his queen at Dragonpit for the first time straight from Jon Snow, not from the queen he serves. That perhaps made him feel left out and small.

Tyrion can see how Daenerys has started relying on Jon Snow. She even asked Jon for advice when she heard the news about Lannisters taking over Highgarden. At that time she was quite mad at Tyrion as his advice to stand down cost her Dorne, Iron Islands and Highgarden. Now with Jon pledging alliance as King in the North to Daenerys, and Daenerys and Jon hooking up, it complicates matters for Tyrion even further.

When Tyrion Finds Out That Cersei is Pregnant

Tyrion may have made some kind of a deal with Cersei to make her commit to a truce. May be he told Cersei that her unborn child can be named as Daenerys’s successor. We have seen Tyrion talking to Daenerys about choosing a successor to Daenerys in Beyond the Wall. Even though Tyrion thinks that Daenerys can’t have children and Jon Snow and Daenerys having sex won’t change that in his opinion. But he is worried that Daenerys won’t agree to Tyrion’s suggestion of naming Cersei’s child as her successor, especially if Jon Snow and Daenerys get married. That would make Jon Snow a successor after Daenerys. Remember, no one except Brandon Stark and Samwell Tarly know about the fact that Jon Snow is Aegon Targaryen, the true heir to the Iron Throne.

Does Tyrion Love Daenerys?

Tyrion may also have some feelings for Daenerys. He definitely respects her. According to Jeremy Pedeswa, Director of Game of Thrones Finale, in an interview, “Everyone seems to be in love with Dany, in a way, and I think Tyrion’s a little bit in love with her. But I don’t think it’s an actual romantic love. There’s a huge respect for her. And maybe there’s a slight romantic element to that. But it’s more of a jockeying in terms of who has real power. Not over Dany, but who has power in a relationship with Dany. With Tyrion, it’s all about who is going to have sway over her?



So is Tyrion jealous? Yes, there is some jealousy and some love. But, most likely, Tyrion is worried about losing influence over Daenerys as she gets more and more close to Jon.

The Love Story of Lyanna Stark and Rhaegar Targaryen

The love story of Lyanna Stark and Rhaegar Targaryen is an amazing one. It all started in Harrenhal.



How Lyanna Stark and Rhaegar Targaryen Met?

In 281 AC, Lord Walter Whent organized a grand tourney at Harrenhal. Many noble houses from all over the Seven Kingdoms came to the Riverlands to take part in the tourney. Amongst them were Brandon Stark, and his younger siblings, Eddard aka Ned StarkLyanna Stark and Benjen Stark, heirs to Winterfell in the North.



King Aerys II Targaryen was also part of the festivities. The Crown Prince Rhaegar Targaryen won the final tilt. Rhaegar was supposed to crown the new queen of love and beauty. Instead of crowning his wife, the Dornish princess Elia Martell, Rhaegar rode past her and crowned Lyanna Stark of Winterfell instead. Ned Stark always recalled this moment as “the moment when all smiles died”.

Supposed abduction of Lyanna Stark

After a certain amount of unknown time, Rhaegar Targaryen supposedly abducts Lyanna Stark. At that time, Lyanna Stark is betrothed to Robert Baratheon. Brandon Stark and later on Rickard Stark go with their armies to the Red Keep thinking that Rhaegar took Lyanna to King’s Landing. However, Mad King executes both Brandon and Rickard. Robert is at a loss for losing Lyanna and with the help of Ned Stark, Robert and Ned declare a rebellion against House Targaryen.



Lyanna Stark and Rhaegar Targaryen Were in Love

Today, in Game of Thrones Season 7 Finale, it was finally revealed that Lyanna was not abducted by Rhaegar. Robert’s rebellion was based on a lie. She and Rhaegar were in love since that tourney. Lyanna eloped with Rhaegar. High Septon Maynard annulled the marriage of Rhaegar Targaryen and Elia Martell and married Lyanna and Rhaegar in Dorne.

Robert kills Rhaegar in the battle of Trident. Lyanna gets pregnant with Rhaegar’s child and gives birth to Aegon Targaryen aka Jon Snow in the Tower of Joy. Ned Stark finds Lyanna all soaked in the blood due to complications from childbirth. Lyanna tells Ned the name of her child and takes a promise from Ned not to tell about Aegon to Robert and everyone else. She knows that Robert will kill that child if he comes to know that Aegon is Rhaegar’s and Lyanna’s child.

Lyanna dies and Ned brings Aegon home as his bastard son Jon Snow. Rhaegar and Lyanna died but their love in the form of Jon Snow aka Aegon Targaryen is still alive today. Jon Snow is unaware of his heritage. We will see how he reacts when he comes to know that he is not a bastard after all but a true heir to the Iron Throne.
