4. We (finally) learn that Jon Snow is the legitimate son of Rhaegar Targaryen and Lyanna Stark
After (quite literally) years of speculation, Thrones fans finally got the big reveal they’ve been waiting for over the span of multiple seasons, as well as confirmation of a (thanks to Gilly) more recent twist: Jon Snow isn’t just the son of Rhaegar Targaryen and Lyanna Stark, he is their legitimate son. This means a few things:
- Rhaeger’s marriage to Lyanna, after the annulment of his marriage to Elia Martell, means that Jon (real name Aegon Targaryen) is the true heir to the Iron Throne.
- King Robert Baratheon’s rebellion to free the “abducted” Lyanna, to whom he was betrothed, was built on a lie.
- Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryen are (surprise, surprise) related.
