‘Game of Thrones’ Confusion: Lots of Google Users Have No Idea How Jon Snow and Daenerys Are Related

And MANY people still don’t know when Season 8 premieres

Last Updated: April 14, 2019 @ 2:53 PM

“Game of Thrones” is a confusing show, we’ll admit that. So confusing that even we sometimes have to use Google to fact-check the many, many plot points and character details from David Benioff and D.B. Weiss’ HBO fantasy series. But after looking at the search engine’s data regarding the show, well, we have some questions about your questions.

According to stats provided to TheWrap by Google, among the most-Googled questions related to “Game of Thrones” in the U.S. between March 28 and April 4 was, “How are Jon Snow and Daenerys related?”

OK, so this proves that 592 days after the Season 7 finale, some viewers are still confused about what was revealed in the final moments of the episode: that Jon Snow (played by Kit Harington) is the legitimate son of Prince Rhaegar Targaryen — Daenerys’ (Emilia Clarke) older brother — and Lyanna Stark, as the two were married in secret before he was born.

Just to be clear, that means Jon is not Ned Stark’s bastard son, he is Dany’s nephew. She is his aunt. So that also means he’s the rightful heir to the Iron Throne. Understood? Good.

Now you can check out the other most-Googled “Game of Thrones” question below, which reveal that not everyone knows Season 8 premieres this Sunday at 9/8c on HBO.
