The Prophecy Loophole That Means Daenerys Can Have Babies With Jon Snow

Cersei Is Going to Meet With Some Savage Karma

Please proceed with caution if you wish to avoid spoilers. But this is one power play she'll be making alone; Jaime (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau), horrified by Cersei's shameless self-interest, abandoned her and rode north as snowflakes began to fall on King's Landing.

So, how did that go? Can we get a sitcom with these three as one of the GoT spin-offs? But now it's not stopping them and the wights, White Walkers and everything else in the army marched south. Until his uncle kicks him in the groin with no reaction from Theon's side. But this new reveal may mean that Jon's story will encompass part of what that Aegon will do in the books.

Tyrion then volunteers to speak with his sister while everyone is disgusted at Jon for being so honest. "I can not serve two queens and I've already pledged myself to Queen Daenerys of House Targaryen", replies Jon Snow. In this episode, we got confirmation that Rhaegar Targaryen is his father-and Jon was never a bastard.

Sisterhood: For the entire season I had a sneaky feeling that Sansa Stark was going to do something stupid, most likely at Littlefinger's behest, and end up getting killed for it. It also establishes the precise hierarchy of Winterfell with Arya deferring to Sansa's rule. When Arya arrives, there is a room full of people looking on - Littlefinger included. I'm still skeptical the show will maintain its redemptive turn throughout its final season, but I won't be opposed if, at the end of the day, the best man or woman actually does win.

Speaking of Littlefinger... it says something about the quality and significance of an episode when his death probably isn't even in the top three moments.

The season finale of Game of Thrones airs again on Sky Atlantic on Monday night at 9pm.

"You are a Greyjoy".

Or-a more horrifying thought-could it be possible that we see the two men in the final Season 8 but in another form?

Theon Greyjoy leads a small band of Iron Islanders to save his sister Yara. It was obvious that Daenerys will swoop in with her dragons and make a whole show of it to intimidate Cersei, who will still be too selfish to agree to the truce even upon seeing the walking dead. Unbeknownst to them, their common enemy beyond the Wall was ready to get this war started. Cersei figures the North don't need their help anyway, not with the dragons and the Dothraki. She also suspects something happened to one of Daenerys' dragons, indicating they are not impenetrable. She wants to gather her army and reclaim her lands while Daenerys and Jon fight the undead. "It could be them killing each other", he said. Since Jon is actually the son of Rhaegar Targaryen and Lyanna Stark, who were married in secret before their deaths, Jon Snow is actually a trueborn heir to the Iron Throne. Over 20 years ago, the most eagle-eyed readers picked up on clues that Jon might not be who he seemed-that Lyanna Stark died in a "bed of blood", and other hints.

His parents are in fact Rhaegar Targaryen (Daenarys' older brother) and Lyanna Stark (Ned's younger sister), and as it turns out that his parents were legally Wednesday, that makes him a legitimate son with blood from two of the most powerful Houses in Westeros.

Jon's parentage revelation is all fine and dandy, until he and Daenerys, who is his aunt, have sex in this episode.

Of course, fans had to wait until nearly the end of the finale to have this news revealed to them.

And in myriad ways Game of Thrones mirrors that sentiment as we've engaged in a weekly match of high-stakes speculation and acceptance, twisting our heads back and forth to past and future plot threads like spectators at some fateful medieval tennis match, attempting to divine meaning out of its intricately dramatic web. As spectacle it's flawless, especially as it throws in the uncertain fate of Tormund and Beric - two characters we've grown to love during S7 - for good measure.
