In the show? Sure why not, it's not as if they are following the books plot anymore and unless they introduce the pretender Aegon - whose left Jamie?

It seems likely  on the show given that Tyrion advised Dany to give up her man candy and think about potential political marriages.  Tyrion has a history with both Jon and Sansa and would probably counsel in favor of the match.

Could happen in the TVseries; Yes.

Could happen in the Bookseries; No

Should happen both in the TVseries and the books; No.

Looks like that's where it's headed.  Also looks like politics will motivate the match, instead of lurve at first sight or something like that.

I'm not expecting it to end well though, for obvious reasons. I don't even want to know what GRRM would do during that wedding.  I'll be a nervous wreck before that event, oh boy.  :ph34r:

I don't think that is either Dany or Jon's destiny to be with each other, and I doubt either of them live until the end. If they both do, there is always a possibility of co-ruling, I suppose. King of Winter and Queen of Summer, perhaps?

Daeny knows she will have to marry for political connections and there really are very little male suitors left in westeros of suitable standing left besides Jon.

After thinking, I can't find another man that politically powerful enough suitable for the stormborn, Only Jon is the suitable one

The show definitely hinted at it in this episode.  I'm still not convinced it will actually happen,  though.

I feel ill, and have felt so since Dany and Tyrion discussed a political marriage last night. It was the first thought that entered my mind. Please don't do this, D&D and George.

Because she sent Daario to the friendzone in order to make a political mariage, Euron is her enemy, and the only powerful leader now is Jon, Jaime is impossible, maybe bronn :D

I think she will let him be king of the north.  She will just be emperess of The world.

That isn't what I mean. People keep mentioning what Dany would like and completely dismiss Jon's side of the story.

Yeah, only the Night's King is Dany's match lol, they should marry & rule Westeros for thousands of years.

what would she gain from weakling? the north has no army and no political influence , she 1000 times stronger why would she need some weakling?

Hard to know in the show what other political powerhouses are left.  Who is the power in the Reach who will in essence take over lordship of that region now that there are apparently no more Tyrells?  In the books the Hightowers of Old Town are very wealthy/powerful, but haven't mentioned them in the show, so can't know if that is a possible suitor?  But she already has The Reach on her side (but would maybe need to find a way to keep them there beyond just revenge).  Tyrion is most likely going to be Lord of Casterlyrock if Dany wins the throne, but again he is her Hand and won't need to marry him to bring the Westerlands under her control. 

So the North, Jon would make some sense.  Renounce being KitN to be her king, let Sansa become Lady of Winterfell, in exchange Dany uses her dragon to kill off the army of the dead north of the wall since only fire can apparently kill the wights.  The Vale, Robyn is doomed with LF around, and no way Tyrion and Varys would allow Dany to marry LF, they know how manipulative he is.  So really Jon does make the most sense of the known Lords in Westeros, so unless the show introduces some other guy.

But my biggest question is yes Dany needs to marry for alliance reasons, but who would marry her knowing they wouldn't really be "king", but husband to the queen?  Dany isn't going through all of this to sit on the sidelines while her new husband rules Westeros.
