The final episodes of game of Thrones surprised many fans when Jon Snow became romantically involved with Deanerys Targeryen. Later, the character would discover that she was, in fact, his aunt.
However, if it were up to George RR Martin, the author of the books that inspire the series, Jon would fall in love with an even closer woman. In the first versions of The Ice SongsMartin wanted Jon Snow to be romantically related to Arya Stark.
Even in these versions of the story, the characters would already gain reciprocal feelings since they were little and when, finally, they discovered the truth about Jon’s origins, they would stay together.
But even if Martin had followed his plan in the first few books,Game of Thrones couldn’t bring this relationship to the small screen, as it had explored a more curious and incestuous relationship between brothers Cersei and Jaime Lannister.
When GoT debuted, Kit Harington (Jon Snow’s interpreter) was ten years older than Maisie Williams, the actress who played Arya in the series. And to make matters worse, Maisie was still a minor.
Also, until Jon’s true origin was revealed, the characters would imagine they were half-siblings, an incestuous relationship that could be viewed poorly by spectators.
The very relationship between Cersei Lannister and Jaime Lannister caused a big buzz among the public that was still getting used to the more radical proposal of the series.
