Jon Snow lastly discovered the reality about his mother and father and the pivotal scene within the ‘Recreation of Thrones’ season eight premiere featured an epic callback to a Ned Stark scene within the first season.
The ultimate minutes of the Recreation of Thrones season eight premiere featured Sam Tarly telling Jon Snow that he’s really the son of Lyanna Stark and Rhaegar Targaryen within the Winterfell crypts. As Jon is attempting to wrap his head round the truth that he’s the true inheritor to the Iron Throne and never a bastard, Ned Stark’s statue is within the distance behind him. “My father was probably the most honorable man I ever met. You’re saying he lied to me all my life?” Jon asks Sam. Sam acknowledges the statue and tells Jon, “Your father… Ned Stark, he promised your mom that he’d all the time defend you and he did. Robert would have murdered you if he knew.” As he says this, Lyanna’s statue within the crypt comes into view between Sam and Jon Snow.
This poignant scene is a significant callback to the second episode of season 1. As Jon and Ned stated goodbye earlier than Jon headed off to the Night time’s Watch, Ned instructed Jon, “You’re a Stark. It’s possible you’ll not have my identify, however you’ve my blood.” Jon requested Ned about his mom. “The subsequent time we see one another, we’ll discuss your mom. I promise,” Ned stated.
Ned was telling Jon the reality at the moment, simply not all the reality. Jon is half Stark, however his final identify is absolutely Targaryen. Ned by no means received the possibility to inform Jon Snow about his mom. Just some episodes later, Ned was decapitated at Joffrey’s command. However Ned was part of the second Jon Snow discovered, even when it was simply his statue.
Now that Jon is aware of the reality about his parentage, it’ll have game-changing penalties for his relationship with Daenerys. Jon is technically in a relationship along with his aunt. “You gave up your crown to avoid wasting your folks. Would she do the identical?” Sam asks Jon after the massive reveal. That’s the million greenback query proper now. Will Daenerys bend the knee for Jon? The ultimate season of Recreation of Thrones airs Sundays at 9 p.m. on HBO.
