AceShowbiz - There's more secret to Jon Snow's parents that "Game of Thrones" had kept until this week's episode. In "Eastwatch" that aired Sunday, August 13, Gilly made an important reveal that she and Sam, who was with her at The Citadel, don't realize yet.
In the scene [SPOILER ALERT!], Gilly asked Sam, "What does annulment mean?" A preoccupied Sam explained it means terminating one marriage so you can wed another. Gilly went on reading that High Septon Maynard issued an annulment to "Prince Raggar" (Rhaegar Targaryen) to marry someone else in a secret ceremony in Dorne.
At this point, Sam who has no idea about Jon's true parentage ignored this information, but fans are squeaking with excitement about the major reveal. As we've known, Jon is the son of Rhaegar and Lyanna Stark. Rhaegar was married to Elia (Oberyn's sister) who gave birth to Rhaenys and Aegon. But if Rhaegar ended his marriage to Elia and married Lyanna, that means Jon is not a bastard at all, but a legitimate son.
Fans have created a lot of memes expressing their reactions to find out this game-changing twist.
Me, when Gilly reads that Rhaegar and *someone* (Lyanna) were secretly married which means Jon is a legitimate Targaryen: pic.twitter.com/QVwgozGXOh— ThronesYall (@ThronesYall) August 14, 2017
Others are baffled that Sam didn't pay attention to the discovery.
