Game of Thrones cast and crew members tease Season 7 finale, “The Dragon and the Wolf”

This article contains a huge spoiler from the latest Game Of Thrones episode and the title of the article clearly mentions what we are talking about. So let’s first give the mandatory warning before we move ahead and talk about the huge reveal in Game Of Thrones season 7 finale. SPOILER ALERT!!! Please turn back if you haven’t yet watched the episode.

Melisandre spoiler warning

Finally after 7 long seasons of calling Jon by his bastard name, Game Of Thrones gave us his real name and the fans are going crazy and I mean it because I am one of those fans who can’t seem to control his emotions after watching Game Of Thrones season 7 finale.

This has to be one of the best episodes so far and the episode gave us some stunning moments but we are only going to focus on the biggest reveal in the episode and that is Jon Snow’s real name and it turns out he’s Aegon Targaryen!

During the season 6 finale, we found out that Jon was the son of Rhaegar Targaryen and Lyanna Stark but we didn’t know if he was a bastard or not and another important topic of discussion was his name that Lyanna whispered in Ned’s ears. A fan tried to lip read his name and came up with the name Jaeharys but the latest episode has shown us that it was a case of bad lip reading and that Jon Snow has a kickass new name, Aegon Targaryen.

We need to thank Gilly and Samwell Tarly for this revelation and the fans will readily forgive Samwell because he didn’t actually ignore the information that Gilly revealed about Rhaegar annulling his marriage with Elia Martell.

Bran Stark, who’s the Three Eyed Raven now, can see everything that has happened and is happening all around the world and as he told us previously, it’s difficult to keep track of so many things and we are glad that Samwell was there at the right moment to guide Bran in the right direction.

Bran was convinced that Jon Snow was, in fact, Jon Sand as he thought that Jon was Rhaegar and Lyanna’s bastard son. But Samwell corrected him and on Samwell’s request, Bran searched through history to find the moment when Rhaegar wed Lyanna and I wish we got to see more scenes involving Rhaegar but we can’t complain as Bran quickly moved forward and showed us the moment where Lyanna told Ned about her son’s real name and it is going to have huge implications in Game Of Thrones season 8.

We now know that Jon or Aegon to be correct (it will take some time to get used to his new name and I’ll prefer to call him Jon for now) has the strongest claim to the Iron Throne and he’s named after Aegon the Conqueror.

However, Aegon the Conqueror wasn’t the only Aegon in the history of Westeros as a number of Targaryen’s were named Aegon, but it’s interesting to note that Rhaegar had a son with Elia Martell and he too was named Aegon Targaryen.

So it’s weird to find out that Rhaegar had two sons named Aegon. Take a look at this scene from season 3, where  Thoros of Myr talks about Rhaegar’s murdered children Aegon and Rhaenys. Jump directly to the 3.20 mark.

It’s also possible that Rhaegar and Lyanna never had a discussion about the name and Lyanna named him Aegon on her own but we don’t want to discuss more about this and focus on the important point.

We now know that Jon has the best claim to the Iron Throne and not Cersei or Daenerys but we don’t know if he will be willing to take that responsibility. We have seen how he didn’t want to be the King in the North but took over that responsibility as he wanted to protect the North from the danger that was approaching and maybe he might do that again but we can never predict what happens in Game Of Thrones.

Also, he fans finally got to witness some boat sex between Jon and Daenerys and it will be interesting to see how Jon reacts when he finds out that Daenerys is actually his aunt!

What are your thoughts about the latest revealation? Do you think Jon will marry Daenerys after finding out his true identity? Let us know in the comments below.

George R. R. Martin promises to finish The Winds of Winter before writing for House of the Dragon

Game of Thrones might be over, but the franchise is alive and kicking. We still have at least two books left to come, and HBO has just announced he first prequel to the series, named House of the Dragon. The key factor is that both the books, and this show, require George R. R. Martin to write, and the prequel announcement was concerning fans about the fate of The Winds of Winter. George however has cleared those doubts by revealing he’ll be finishing The Winds of Winter before staring with the prequel. Read on!

George took to his Not a Blog to discuss the prequel, knowing fully well fans were concerned that it might lead to a further delay in The Winds of Winter coming out. George wrote, giving an insight into the development of the prequel:

“Ryan Condal has already done a considerable amount of writing on House of the Dragon, but a lot of work remains ahead of us. There’s a writer’s room to be assembled, episodes to be broken down and scripted, a cast and crew to be assembled, budgets and production details to be worked out. As yet, we don’t even know where we will be shooting… though I expect we will revisit at least some of the countries David & Dan used for GAME OF THRONES (Ireland, Iceland, Scotland, Croatia, Morocco, Malta, and Spain).”

He continued:

“I expect to be involved in all of this to some extent… and, who knows, if things work out, I may even be able to script a few episodes, as I did for the first four seasons of Game of Thrones.”

George made sure to give a little disclaimer, however:

“But… let me make this perfectly clear… I am not taking on any scripts until I have finished and delivered Winds of Winter. Winter is still coming, and Winds remains my priority, as much as I’d love to write episodes of House.”

He also discussed the sad fate of the other Game of Thrones prequel, The Long Night, which was cancelled, and noted that he didn’t think that the cancellation had anything to do with House of the Dragon, saying HBO had enough room for multiple Game of Thrones successor shows. He also expressed his sympathies towards Jane Goldman and others who worked on the show.

In any case, it looks like we might get The Winds of Winter in 2020, at least. What do you guys think? Tell us in the comments, down below!

Emilia Clarke poses with Jason Momoa and Kit Harington in the best birthday snap ever

Game of Thrones stars have the best get together, but the latest one is definitely our new favourite. The mother of dragons, Emilia Clarke turned 33 recently, and had a birthday bash fitting for a Khaleesi. The best part of the birthday for us fans is a picture that she posted a picture that is by all means iconic, featuring both her onscreen love interests from Game of Thrones. Read on!

Emilia took to Instagram to share moments from what seems like the best birthday party ever, but without a doubt, the crown jewel of the birthday snaps is Emilia’s picture with Jason Momoa, a.k.a. Khal Drogo, and Kit Harington, a.k.a. Jon Snow, calling it a “Momoa sandwich” in the hashtags. Check it out:

Well, if only we had gotten this moment on Game of Thrones! Jason Momoa left an adorable comment on the picture, saying “Happy birthday love. So stoked I got to see you 😍”. The picture comes right after Emilia and Jason’s recent reunion on The Graham Norton Show.

Emilia also posted more pictures from her birthday party. Take a look:

The Khaleesi sure knows how to party. There’s a good chance more Game of Thrones stars were present, but we do not have any pictures at the moment.

There are quite a few Game of Thrones pairings that are iconic, but the top spot belongs to Emilia Clarke and Jason Momoa, without a doubt. The actors that played the onscreen couple Daenerys Targaryen and Khal Drogo are great friends in real world. We have seen them reunite quite a lot, but the two are headed for an onscreen reunion, as they’re scheduled to appear on The Graham Norton Show. Read on!

The popular British TV series The Graham Norton Show always has the best guest pairing, and they seem to have totally nailed it this time around. Emilia and Jason will be seen together on the show’s upcoming episode scheduled to air on October 25.

The two promos seem to have come together beautifully, leading to this reunion.
