After all the talk of the recent season of Game of Thrones being under-sexed, it most certainly delivered – and then some – on Sunday’s finale.
The series’ events culminated in a seriously steamy and incestuous lovemaking scene between Jon Snow, played by Kit Harington, and Daenerys Targaryen, played by Emilia Clarke.
But while the incestuous plot twist certainly whipped fans into a frenzy, the intrigue surrounding the storyline of the show’s finale was almost entirely overshadowed by one rather unlike star: Kit’s bare rear end, which featured front and center in the incredibly risque scene.
Big moment: Fans were elated to see Jon Snow enjoy a passionate lovemaking session with Daenerys Targaryen on Game Of Thrones on Sunday
Getting attention: The fans were especially excited to see a full view of actor Kit Harington’s rear end
Top spot: The fans didn’t seem too concerned by the fact that Daenerys is revealed to be Jon’s blood aunt
Despite the fact that the sex scene was, in fact, incestuous – given the reveal that Daenerys is Jon’s blood aunt – fans were actually thrilled to see the couple finally get together.
One fan called Alyssa Neumann tweeted: ‘So #GameOfThrones has taught me that I’m against twin incest but aunt/nephew incest is totally fine.’
Meanwhile Trent said: ‘You wanna know how incredible Game of Thrones is? They not only showed us incest but they had us rooting for it as it happened.’
Long awaited: The moment came about when Jon sneaked into the room of the stunning queen
Pleasing the fans: The passionate scene was the high point for many in an action-packed finale
Congrats: Many people thought that Kit’s pert body part was the real star of the show
One step further: In fact, this user reckoned that it needed a proper credit
But more fervent than that excitement was the reaction to Kit’s butt being fully on show as the characters romped, leading to hundreds of posts of approval appearing on Twitter.
Some dubbed its appearance as ‘most important part of the season finale.’
‘I hereby pledge my adoration & loyalty to the true star of tonight #GameofThrones’ finale… Jon. Snow’s. Butt,’ gushed one user.
Another added: ‘My biggest takeaway from tonight’s episode is Kit Harington’s butt #GameOfThrones (I guess everything else was ok too.)’
Long time coming: The possible romance between the two characters has long been hinted
Real romp: The two will surely soon be facing off against the White Walker army
Several joked that Kit’s shapely behind is ‘the Prince that was Promised’ in reference to a religious prophecy touted by certain characters in the show.
The pair of characters, whose romantic relationship had been getting built up throughout the penultimate season, finally gave into their passion as they sailed north from Dragonstone as they prepare to face off against the dreaded White Walker threat.
Jon sneaked to her quarters and was only too happily invited inside by his queen.
In a rather creepy turn, Daenerys’ trusted adviser Tyrion Lannister was shown lingering outside in the shadows and waiting outside as they enjoyed their passionate liaison.
