Emilia Clarke just hinted that Daenerys might end up with a man who isn’t Jon Snow and I’m livid

Okay, yes: Daenerys Targaryen is definitely Jon Snow’s aunt in the Game of Thrones universe (unbeknownst to both of them). Therefore, it is definitely somewhat pro-incest for us as fans to root for their hookup.

Then again: WHATEVER. This is Game of Thrones, where we’ve all weirdly adjusted to Jaime and Cersei’s unsettling love affair. Incest is not off-limits for the show’s main characters — particularly when they are both young and incredibly good-looking.

The bottom line is that many people are on the edge of their seats, waiting for Jon and Daenerys to get busy (or at least to more than make eyes at one another). However, the real Daenerys, AKA actress Emilia Clarke, may have just squashed all of our hopes and dreams in regards to Dany’s romantic prospects.

During a behind-the-scenes cast commentary segment, Clarke discussed the moment when Jon, Daenerys and Ser Jorah’s worlds simultaneously collided.

According to Clarke, Jorah is “The one” as far as Daenerys is concerned.

“The thing about Ser Jorah is that he has been the one from the very beginning,” Clarke says. “I think he has an ability to see right through her.”

While this comment initially made me want to throw my laptop out the window, I do understand that, sure, Daenerys and Jorah have a powerful connection. That said … I have no interest in anything romantic happening between these characters.

In terms of the show’s more recent narrative, Jorah often comes across as an overzealous fanboy (despite his nobility). Jon Snow, however, is a man who doesn’t immediately buckle to Daenerys’ attractiveness, and isn’t afraid to voice his disagreements around her. Just like Dany, he is a ruling force to be reckoned with — which (seemingly) makes the two of them a much more suitable match.

That said, Clarke also went on to downplay Dany’s interactions with Jon Snow. “Busted! Me and Jon Snow just chillin’ on a cliff by ourselves,” she added. “Don’t read into it.”

Don’t read into it? Hopefully Clarke is just attempting to throw us off the scent of Dany’s (extremely obvious) feelings for Jon Snow. Otherwise, I fear for my laptop’s safety (because, as mentioned above, I will be forced to chuck it out the window).
