And it turned out to be true in the final episode of Season 7.
A name is never just a name in Game of Thrones, and Jon's proper birth name is no exception.
Since the beginning of Game of Thrones, Jon Snow has been known as the bastard son of Ned Stark. He mentioned that Tyrion's meeting with Cersei had a bit of an abrupt ending, and that she seemed to change her mind awfully quick.
SPOILER ALERT: Read no further if you have not watched the last episode of Game Of Thrones' 7th season.
Though "The Dragon and the Wolf" brought together several sworn enemies in King's Landing, the most shocking death of the episode belonged to Littlefinger, as the remaining Stark siblings - led by Sansa - finally gave him his due. So, did Tormund and Beric die?
First, we had Missandei and Greyworm get it on after an entire season of flirting on their part. There's no way he or Beric survived that. The fact that the showmakers followed the revelation of Jon's true name and linage with the intimate sex scene between the two and the fact that fans enjoyed this scene all the more shows the long way that we GoT fans have come from the first season! They have a meet up at the dragon pit with Cersei, Jaime, Bronn and Euron.
Eastwatch-by-the-Sea fell with ice and fire as the Night King-now riding an undead Viserion-directed his newly acquired dragon to just burn the whole thing down.
Even though the resolution to that particular storyline was the biggest highlight of the episode for me, the rest of the show was great as well. I was so happy to see that this was not just a case of bad writing, but a trap for the always conniving Littlefinger.
As expected, Twitter was alight following the final episode of season seven. Or simply foreshadowing of the Wall itself falling?
"Beyond the Wall the monsters live, and the giants and ghouls... but they can not pass so long as the Wall stands strong and the men of the Night's Watch are true", Old Nan once told Bran in A Song of Ice and Fire. Is it possible that George R.R. Martin will have different plans for Young Griff in the book series? Certainly, Beric has proven tough to kill, but that's largely because Thoros of Myr (Paul Kaye) was able to resurrect him.
