If by now you haven’t yet caught up with GOT s07e05: East watch, I advise you stop reading. This is a SPOILER alert!
This episode didn’t contain much action (or any, save for the near-termination of House Tarly by Drogon’s fire), but it had plenty of explosive revelations.
Those familiar with Game of Thrones terminologies understand that whoever has the surname, Snow, wears it as a mark of dishonour – a taint of your father’s desecration of his matrimonial vows. Snow is the North’s announcement for a bastard. Jon Snow our titular hero, the man who rose from nothing to everything even though he was a bastard, was revealed to not be a bastard after all.
The above piece of information was the last piece of useful information The Citadel revealed to us before ending its tenure as a location on the show for the time being. What this means is that, Jon, whose father is Rhaegar Targayrean, has a legitimate claim to the throne just as Dany does. This complicates things future for the odd power couple. Yes! I said couple. If you didn’t notice the full blow attraction Dany was felt when Jon and Drogon connected, then you need a pair of glasses. Drogon was the first to validate Jon’s dragon blood when it psychically bonded with Jon to the surprise of its mother.
Do you think Daenarys would buy lightly the idea that Jon is her nephew? – I think she’ll have no interest to fight Jon for the Iron Throne, because by the time this revelation comes out, The Night King would have already crossed The Wall.
What then is the way forward? Would Jon Snow be interested in sitting on The Iron Throne? – If there’s one thing we all know, it’s that Jon is more concerned with protecting the living; every single person who draws breath. He has bigger things on his plate to worry about ruling The Seven Kingdoms. His thoughts should be tailored more towards surviving The Long Night.
The penultimate episode of the season is already upon us – A big battle is on the horizon for next week. Of our band of seven merry men not all will return – alive.
