Jon Snow & Daenerys' Relationship Is What 'Game Of Thrones' Is All About, According To George R.R. Martin


The world is a vast and curious place with so many questions and a veritable Pandora's box of open-ended debates. Sometimes it's nice to have answers. Especially when it comes to Game of Thrones. With all the head-scratchers and easter eggs, fans might find themselves asking, what's the meaning of all this? According to George R.R. Martin, Jon Snow and Daenerys' relationship is the whole point. Sort of.

With the Season 7 finale upon us and Season 8 lurking in the near future, we're getting more and more insight into the essence of the epic drama, and even insiders are weighing in on the context of Dany and Jon's powerful alliance.

Game of Thrones director Alan Taylor spoke to Deadline and spilled a little on George R.R. Martin's early inference that the pair were, indeed, central to the entirety of the story in a way.

He also told The Daily Beast,

His interview with the New York Times revealed that Martin was "quite open about his plans" in back Season 1. "He said something: That it really is all about Dany and Jon."

Whether you ship this couple or the idea of it makes you feel queasy, we now have some idea as to how truly integral the union was from the beginning.
