(Warning: this article is dark and full of spoilers).
For many fans, it does seem to be significant.
The Game Of Thrones series finale will air overnight the UK on Sky Atlantic at 2am.
The warring Westeros forces of Lannister, Stark and Targaryen will come together in the finale of Game Of Thrones' penultimate series on Sunday night.
A long-held fan theory is that Mirri Maz Duur's words aren't actually about Drogo returning to Dany, but rather about the fact she will find love again (and, of course, get pregnant). Good job, Jon Snow. But there has also been a number of great below the top line pairings that have brought fans delight. I mean, that's nothing given the fact that twins Cersei and Jaime are at it like rabbits and we barely even flinch these days when they snog. However, Jon claws his way out of the water and manages to make it back to Castle Black.
What she's afraid of: Being surrounded by enemies on all sides, which is why she had a gigantic map painted on the floor to remind her of it every single second. Daario was not the ice to Dany's fire. The criteria for said ranking isn't simply whether or not the conversation was enjoyable (although that's part of it).
Anyway, Dany clearly reciprocates his feelings so what we essentially have is a brooding, brewing love affair between a man, and the woman who technically stands between him and his rightful destiny. Michael's searched for clues in the photos; see the pics and read his take on 'em here. Not watchin' that with dad.
Based on this horrific experience, Dany may think that any children she bore would be similarly malformed, or that Mirrii Maz Duur somehow cursed her womb.
Not that incest has ever mattered in Game of Thrones: As Pettitt points out, there seems to be something special about the genetics in Martin's universe because incest never seems to lead to more illness.
The blood relationship between Jon Snow and Daenerys could impact more on who should rightfully claim the Iron Throne rather than in their romance. Perhaps someday Jorah will wish he would've kept the sword to cuddle on those lonely nights.
Here's his wildest prediction: After the Night King killed and reanimated that dragon, Queen Daenerys Targaryen will be looking for armor to protect her remaining beasts - enter the recently reintroduced son of King Robert Baratheon, blacksmith Gendry. Tormund's insight is spot on and before the episode ends, Jon heeds his advice. I get what he's talking about, and I know some readers will, too. ¯\_ (ツ) _/¯.

Season 7 was off to a satisfying, bloody start, opening with the annihilation of the entire House Frey at the nimble, murderous hands of Arya Stark - wearing the face of Walder Frey, no less. Rory McCann as The Hound.
Elsewhere it shows Greyworm and the unsullied army being joined by their Dothraki colleagues as they lay siege to Highgarden. The episode climaxed with him opening his now tell-tale Walker blue eye (if you're listening Farrow and Ball, 'Walker Blue' should totally be a new shade).
