‘Game Of Thrones’ All But Confirmed One Of The Show’s Most Popular Theories

HBO

Game Of Thrones continues to steamroll through its seventh season (literally, as characters seem to be teleporting all over the realm), dropping plot reveals and battle scenes all over fans week in and week out. While this week’s episode, “Eastwatch”, did not have the epic battle scene that last week’s episode did, it was chalk full of information and lore, including another hint at one of the show’s most popular theories.

During last season’s finale, Bran Stark (now the Three-Eyed Raven) discovered the truth about his brother Jon’s true parentage in a flashback. In Bran’s vision, he learned that Jon is not the son of Ned Stark and some whore, but the son of Lyanna Stark and Prince Rhaegar Targaryen, confirming one of the biggest theories about ‘A Song of Ice and Fire.’

In the vision, Ned Stark — Jon’s uncle — traveled to the Tower of Joy in Dorne to rescue his “kidnapped” sister Lyanna. However, after defeating Ser Arthur Dayne and making his way to the Tower, Ned found his sister Lyanna dying in childbirth. It was at this point she made him promise to keep her infant son, Jon, safe from Robert Baratheon. As we all know now, Ned raised Jon as his own despite the shame it brought him and his family.

Now, in last night’s episode, not only did Thrones remind us that Jon is actually a Targaryen, but that he seems to have the same ‘powers’ as them as well:

And not only did last night’s episode hint at Jon’s true lineage through a friendly dragon, but through the text of a long forgotten book at the Citadel as well.

Though Samwell tries to impress upon his superiors that the warning they’ve received from Winterfell about the white walkers is very correct, they’re loathe to listen to him, leading to Samwell venting his frustrations to Gilly. Towards the end of the episode when Samwell’s considering whether to leave the Citadel, we see that Gilly’s taken a shine to reading through the vast collection of books at her disposal. While making her way through a book detailing things about High Septon Maynard, Gilly asks Samwell what an annulment is after reading the word in a sentence:

“Maynard says here that he issued an annulment for a Prince Rhaegar and remarried him to someone else at the same time in a secret ceremony in Dorne.”

Neither Gilly nor Samwell realize the gravity of that sentence and their conversation quickly moves on, but we, the audience have way more information than they do.

So, there you have if folks: it is now officially not if Jon will ride a dragon, but when?
