8. THE BIRTH OF JON SNOW
Bran recently found out the truth about Jon Snow, through his journey into the past. He wasn’t Ned Stark’s bastard son. Ned was always faithful to his wife. Jon Snow was Lyanna Stark’s son with Rhaegar Targaryen. Many of the fans of the novels figured this out for themselves years ago but now there is no doubt. This changes a lot of things, since we now how that Targaryen blood flows through his veins. Could he be the one to ultimately sit on the Iron Throne?
After the Battle of the Bastards in the episode of the same name (written by Benioff and Weiss), he was named the White Wolf, the new King in the North around which all the northern houses have sworn allegiance (much to Littlefinger’s disappointment, but we’ll get to that).
