“Robert’s rebellion was built on a lie”, Bran to Samwell Tarly – connecting the dots that finally confirms Jon is not just any bastard, but a Dornish bastard, who are apparently called ‘Sand’ and, not ‘Snow’. 

This revelation is so big that we are not sure how to feel about it. Although, all the Game of Thrones’ Fans saw this coming but we hadn’t expected the makers to disclose it so soon. 

Anyhow, if you haven’t seen the final instalment of the Season 7, then you better save this story, for, it will ultimately put the crucial missing piece back in the puzzle.

Remember Gilly making a huge discovery about Jon Snow’s parents? Yes, now let’s break down what caused Robert’s rebellion, piece by piece: 

It began when Gilly reads some information recorded by Maynard to Sam which goes on like, “Maynard says here, that he issued an annulment for a Prince Raggar and remarried him to someone else at the same time in a secret ceremony in Dorne”, in a confused manner, Gilly asks Sam the meaning of ‘annulment’, referring to someone called ‘Prince Raggar’, without realising the importance of it.

This conversation led Sam to travel back in the North to have Jon’s back. While he was there, he had a little moment with Bran, who was aware of Jon being the son of Rhaegar Targaryen and Lyanna Stark, yet, not the fact that High Septon Maynard had annulled Rhaegar’s marriage to Elia Martell, before marrying him off to Lyanna in Dorne, which was again, a secret affair that he oversaw. 

Earlier, it was believed that Prince Rhaegar, heir to the Iron Throne, kidnapped Lyanna, Ned’s sister, who was engaged to Robert Baratheon. This theory has been nullified, even though it was a lot more controversial as Rhaegar was thought to be still married to Elia Martell. Amidst all this confusion and lies, the truth has finally come up.


At the time of coming to know about Bran’s power of being a Third Eyed Raven, to which Sam’s reaction was rather shocking and funny, leaving Bran no choice but to go back in time and have a reality check. It’s confirmed that Jon’s real name is Aegon Targaryen. Now, I’m pretty sure you have the same questions revolving around your head that were on my mind while watching the episode: What kick-started the war? What triggered Robert to get rebellious? What happened to Lyanna Stark? Chill out, we have all the answers for you.

Here’s what happened – The great abduction:


Yes, abduction of precious Lyanna caused everyone around her to throw a fit. Her older brother Brandon who had been on his way to Riverrun to wed Catelyn Tully, rode to King’s Landing instead, demanding that King Aerys II Targaryen (who is often called as the Mad King, father of Rhaegar’s), have Lyanna returned and his son punished. While things didn’t work out in the older brother’s favour, who was later imprisoned and, was charged with treason along with his father Rickard Stark. The Mad Kind had both of them killed in front of the entire Royal court, in his insanity; making Jon Arryn, the lord of the Eyrie, raise his banners in revolt against the crown and, sent Robert Baratheon and Ned back to their lands. 

Lyanna’s alleged kidnapping was the cause of the uproar of Robert’s breakdown which ultimately led to his rebellion. But now that we are apprised of what actually happened back in the day, it’s obvious that Rhaegar hadn’t abducted Lyanna but had annulled his first marriage to finally get hitched to his lady love.

In case you haven’t notice this, if Jon sits on the Iron throne in the final season for which, we might have to wait for two years according to the reports, he will rule as King Aegon IV Targaryen. Doesn’t that excite you already?

Now, we’re only left with one doubt: Will Daenerys accept a different heir to the iron throne?

Disclaimer: There are some Earth shaking spoilers ahead and it’s too bad if you haven’t seen the latest episode yet. 

Ever since season 7 of ‘Game of Thrones’ premiered, the show has been throwing some fiery curveballs at us right from the first episode. From Ed Sheeran’s cameo, Arya Stark and Nymeria’s epic reunion to the ‘Loot Train Attack’ spearheaded by Daenerys and her dragon, every episode leaves us GOT fans craving for more. While we all were recuperating from the fire and blood spewed in the last episode, where Daenerys’ dragon and the Dothraki erased Jamie Lannister’s forces; the makers threw us in another pool of interesting plot twists and this time it was a f**king huge deal.

In the last episode we saw Jamie sinking in the waters after Bronn pushed him away to protect him from the wrath of the dragon. It wasn’t just Jamie but our hopes too that were sinking as confusion took over our minds compelling us to think about what will happen to his character now. But, the air was cleared when we saw Bronn swimming while carrying Jamie’s weight. The latest episode ‘Eastwatch’ is definitely one of the most intriguing episodes so far and one of the reasons is Gendry. We can’t hold ourselves anymore – Gendry is back and his entry will definitely create a lot of stir in this game of thrones.

Another interesting moment was when Gilly almost revealed one of the most crucial fan theories so far, but was interrupted by Sam Tarly. The theory is about how Rhaegar Targaryen might have secretly married “someone”, after annulling his marriage. Wait! Does that make Jon a legit Targaryen then? Woah, now that’s a big revelation and we are sure most of you would already know who this ‘someone’ might be. Also just in case you missed out on the movie ‘Suicide Squad’, don’t worry Game of Thrones just got one with Jon, Gendry, Jorah, Tormund and Hound.   

Well, clearly this moment has left Twitter rolling its eyes in utter shock and their reactions collectively echo our feelings right now.  

Jon: “With respect your grace, I don’t need your permission. I am a king.”
