In the episode, viewers finally saw Jon Snow (played by Kit Harington) and the Mother of Dragons enjoy a night of passion after weeks of sexual tension between them.
However, the sex scene between the relatives wasn’t the only thing which caught people’s attention as many questioned Tyrion’s (Peter Dinklage) stance as he appeared deeply troubled over the two sleeping together.
The Hand to Daenerys (Emilia Clarke) looked very disturbed and many wondered if the Lannister was jealous of the King in the North.
But the actor has blasted the love triangle theory as he explained his character was simply concerned due to his knowledge of what love can do to people.
Peter said in a behind-the-scenes video: “It’s dangerous for everybody involved. I’m sure it’s good for both of them in the moment, but you don’t even get the relief of how beautiful it could be or should be.
“It’s just it’s not good — but it should be but it’s not. It’s Game of Thrones. It’s a long history of romance not ending well on this show.”
Director of the season finale, Jeremy Podeswa, also weighed in on the subject and revealed Tyrion is more worried about what the implications the two together can cause him and Daenerys’ quest to become Queen of the Seven Kingdoms.
He told the Daily Beast: “Well I think there’s jealousy, but it’s maybe not romantic jealousy, in the way that it is for Jorah, for example. I think that for Tyrion, it’s more complicated. I think he has a very special relationship with Dany and he really believes in her as a true leader and has invested a lot in her.
“I think for him, with Jon and Dany getting together, this represents a possible undermining of his position with her and also a monkey wrench thrown into what the master plan really is meant to be around this entire alliance.
“He can’t see where this is gonna go and that’s very difficult for someone who is always thinking three steps ahead.”
