Jon Snow is officially too legit to quit.
Episode 5 of “Game of Thrones” Season 7, “Eastwatch,” featured some moments fans have been waiting for, and other surprises no one saw coming (yeah, we’re talking about Arya).
Jon Snow (Kit Harington) touched a dragon; Gendry (Joe Dempsie) finally returned. Tyrion (Peter Dinklage) reunited with Jaime (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) to talk about joining the fight against the White Walkers. Cersei (Lena Headey) revealed she’s pregnant. Littlefinger (Aidan Gillen) fooled Arya (Maisie Williams) by planting a mysterious scroll written by Sansa (Sophie Turner) in his chambers. And Dany (Emilia Clarke) took a slightly evil turn, burning Randyll (James Faulkner) and Dickon Tarly (Tom Hopper) for not bending the knee. (But it is a war after all, what is she going to do?)
One notable moment in the jam-packed episode came when Gilly and Sam were sitting around a table, the former Wildling reading the diary of High Septon Maynard.
“What does annulment mean?” she asks, to Samwell’s slight annoyance, who explains that it means a marriage comes to an end.
Gilly asks because she is referring to someone called ‘Prince Raggar’, who marries someone else – the name is hidden – during a secret Dornish ceremony.
Most people believe that Rhaegar captured Lyanna, an event that actually excited Robert’s Rebellion. When Ned discovers the child, the assumption is he’s a bastard.
However, with legitimacy comes with a whole host of benefits, the most notable being that Jon now has a better claim to the throne than Daenerys.
And with all that going on, the show quietly seemed to confirm the missing piece to the Jon Snow puzzle.
Jon Snow might not be a bastard. WE REPEAT! Jon Snow MIGHT NOT BE A BASTARD!
