Incest aside, how does the parentage of Jon Snow, a.k.a. Aegon Targaryen, change things?
So many ways! Dany is not the true heir to the Iron Throne. Jon Snow is an illegitimate King in the North. Jon Snow should be ruling the Seven Kingdoms. But will he?
Is Daenerys pregnant?
Dany has long assumed she can’t have a child for reasons, as Jon Snow pointed out, seem kind of silly (Mirri Maz Duur, the evil witch from season 1, told her so). There were several references to Dany and Jon having or not having offspring this season, so the show seems to be setting up a pregnancy. So Dany and Cersei would have something in common: Both queens pregnant from an incestous relationship.
Why did Tyrion look so disturbed outside Dany’s cabin?
Speculating here: A queen picking a husband is not a romantic decision, but a massive political one with major consequences (remember what happened to Robb Stark?). Tyrion probably wants to committee that decision for an optimal strategic outcome and Dany sleeping with the King in the North could complicate that.
When does Game of Thrones return?
There is no official premiere date for the final season. But the possibility the show might not return until 2019 is real. Production resumes in October on the final six episodes, which could be supersized to some extent. The second half of 2018 would likely be the earliest the final season could debut.
When do we get a prequel series?
Not until at least a year after the final season airs, as HBO programming president Casey Bloys teased earlier this year at the Television Critics Association summer press tour. Four prequels are officially in development, and HBO is likely to greenlight one or possibly two. There are no details about their content, other than each show is set before the events in GoT, none include any of the current cast, and Robert’s Rebellion is not one of the ideas (because we already know so much about that).
Sigh. He’s off with Nymeria having adventures? Direwolves and dragons wouldn’t get along? Jon’s a neglectful pet owner? What can we tell you?
