As Game of Thrones is moving towards its conclusion and all important events are happening together. Events that fans have been waiting YEARS to see are actually happening. Such as one of the most anticipated meetings in the series – that of Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryen.
Yes it’s finally happening in next episode
The first two episodes of the season were focused on shifting the plot into place to enable the pair to meet, and each of them talking about the other for the first time onscreen in Episode 2.
The episode 3 preview has revealed that we are definitely gonna see them together sharing the screen.
Now, this is gonna be HUGE. These two characters have led pretty parallel journeys until this point. They both have struggled a lot in their journey.
Both their mothers died in childbirth, they were raised as an underdog in their family. They’ve both experienced betrayal, both had their first great love die in their arms, and they’ve both been “reborn” (Dany in the fire in Season 1, Jon resurrected by Melisandre in Season 6).
And YES they are the last living Targaryens
All this means their meeting is kind of monumental, and not just as a family reunion of sorts. In fact – quite the opposite.
They both are meeting without any awareness of Jon’s parentage. So it’s more likely that they will form an alliance.
And the best way to make an alliance is with……
Tyrion has already laid the groundwork for this, and indeed both Jon and Dany want to be allies – even if Dany is insisting Jon must “bend the knee”. It’s unlikely Jon will want to do this – it certainly wouldn’t go over well with the people of the North – so they may have to cement their alliance in other ways.
And no, this is not just a fantasy. Dany left Daario behind in Meereen because he’d get in the way of her forming a strong marriage alliance in Westeros. And what stronger alliance could she make than with the King in the North?
We know that they both are related but it’s Game of Thrones.
Jon and Dany both don’t know that they are related. Of course, that doesn’t mean Jon and Dany will be into the idea – Jon especially – but wouldn’t it be just like Game of Thrones to give these two long-suffering characters a new chance at love and happiness, only to tear it out from under them by revealing Jon’s true parentage down the track? So much conflict, heartache, and incest! So very Game of Thrones.
There is more in this meeting that just a potential marriage alliance. Many fans believe that Jon and Dany are literally the Song of Ice and Fire and that either one or both of them are the prince that was promised.
Melisandre certainly hinted in Episode 2 of Season 7. Jon and Dany’s parallel journeys back up the theory that one or both of them will be the prophesied saviour.
No matter what happens, one thing is for sure: It’s going to be EPIC.
Some Fans Reactions for the Next Episode. Have Fun and wait for the most anticipated meeting in Game of Thrones.
