After Daenerys battle she the came back on dragon stone and she approaches right toward to Jon Snow with her dragon. We know that the army of wights and the Night King are heading to Eastwatch by the Sea, where the wildlings are stationed.

"Spoilers on "#Game of Thrones" season 7 episode 5: "incredible things will happen to Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryen [VIDEO].

As Uproxx points out, about two months ago, fans on Reddit predicted that actor Wilf Scolding would take on the role based on the actor's supposed Twitter history. As such, I think that Tormund Giantsbane is going to die in "Eastwatch". For those of you who watch GoT, you know that House Targaryen's sigil is a three-headed dragon. It's unknown if he forced himself on Lyanna Stark, Jon's mom, or if the two ran away together (many fans believe the latter), but we know Prince Rhaegar is the baby daddy. One half expects Jon Snow to barge into the meeting himself, asking if he can get the castle's wifi password again. Nestoris also goes out of his way to flatter Cersei and make mention of her paying off the Lannisters' debt.

The Targaryen family tree is a ~whole thing~ but don't worry: You don't need to memorize it-Daenerys' immediate family is all that matters here. Of course, George R.R. Martin is famous for throwing out conventional theories in favor of something more complex, so only time will tell if this theory pans out.

So would it be incest if Daenerys and Jon hooked up?

Game of Thrones season 7, episode 5 certainly has a lot to live up to coming off of last week.

However, Bran is in Winterfell and Jon and Daenerys are in Dragonstone. That's the harder question, and one that will likely take the rest of season 7 or longer to answer. Complicated. He could let the news out to his sister's Sansa and Ayra (who he's just been reunited with) and they could send the info forward, but we feel like a much more dramatic reveal is on the cards.

In short, Game of Thrones' most engaging moments appear to be about dialogue rather than the gruesome violence we might normally associate with the story.
