Is George R.R. Martin an Incestuous Perv?
**SPOILER ALERT SPOILER ALERT SPOILER ALERT**
Don’t read this if you don’t want the ending of season 7 of Game of Thrones spoiled… or go ahead and read anyways if you want. Think for yourself, don’t be a sheep.
In last night’s season finale of Game of Thrones, we finally got what we all could see coming from many miles away: Jon and Daenerys makin’ sweet, sweet sexy time. And then, as if we needed it, even more confirmation that the two of them are directly related.
Yep, that’s right. More incest. Who would’ve thought that the greatest show in the history of television would feature so much goddam inbreeding? Certainly not me. Game of Thrones came hot out of the gate with incest scenes between Jaime and Cersei Lannister way back in season 1, and now we’re getting even more family lovin’ with Jon and Dany in season 7.
Now granted, the unknown aunt-nephew relationship that Jon and Dany are getting caught up in is a little more forgivable than the brother-sister shit that Jaime and Cersei got going on, but it’s still pretty fucking gross. I wanna be mad at Jon for not keeping his dick in his pants, but I knew this was gonna happen from the moment they laid eyes on each other at Dragonstone. Jon and Dany are both young, attractive, and unmarried royalty, so I can completely understand the logic in their minds for them to hook up. But at the same time, I can’t help but be a little suspicious of what’s going on in George R.R. Martin’s mind while he’s writing this story.
GRRM is the unequivocal top dog when it comes to the creation of storyline in Game of Thrones. The associate TV writers and producers might be able to work in their own creative flair here and there, but at the end of the day GRRM is calling the shots. And now for the second time in this series’ history, GRRM has decided to feature incest between two high-profile characters. Shit, at this point Jon and Dany are more than high-profile — they’re the most famous characters in the entire show. If you plucked a random person off the street and asked them to name two Thrones characters, I’d bet my life that the first two they blurt out are Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryen. They’re hands down the most iconic, well-known characters in this show, and GRRM has decided to make them incestuous. Now I’m no psychologist or anything like that, but it seems to me that GRRM has a little thing for familial relations, and he wants the entire world to know.
Why else would he create a scene in the season finale of the show in which Jon and Dany have sex, while Bran simultaneously narrates the details of them being aunt and nephew? We already knew that they were related, but GRRM decided to remind us AGAIN of their relation while they were fucking. He could’ve just as easily worked in a detail to somehow reveal that they were only partially related or something like that, but he didn’t. Ask yourself, why would GRRM go to such great lengths to repeatedly work incest into the world’s most watched TV show? The only logical explanation here is that GRRM is a big, fat incest-loving pervert, and now that he’s famous he thinks he can get away with this shit. I mean, just look at him.
Does that look like the face of a man who’s into incest to you? ’Cause it sure as hell looks like it to me. Our boy Georgie here gets off to brother-sister/aunt-nephew sex, and he’s rubbing it in all our faces. The sad part is that no matter how sick this show gets with familial sex, nobody’s ever gonna stop watching it. GRRM’s really got us by the balls here, and it looks like we’re gonna have to put up with all this incest for one more season.
I’m sure (I hope) there’s some greater meaning for Jon being a Targaryen — like having him rightfully claim the Iron Throne when everything’s said and done, but I still think all that could be accomplished without him having to fuck his aunt. At the end of the day though, Jon and Dany make one hell of a power couple, and this scene from last night’s episode was a fantastic piece of television.
Now only 16 months to go til season 8…that’s a whole lot of time for Jon and Dany to keep banging on that boat, just like that sick fuck GRRM wants.
