'Game of Thrones': Did Tyrion Betray Daenerys in Season Finale?

Or Jon Sand. He's not even Jon Targaryen. Bran discovers through another vision that Jon's name is actually Aegon Targaryen and that he is actually the heir to the Iron Throne.

Jon Snow's Dire Wolf isn't white because he's a bastard. This now complicates things between Jon/Aegon and Dany, who had sex in the finale even though they are related (Dany is Jon's aunt) and she probably won't be thrilled to find out that he has a better claim to the throne now than she does. The mission was to convince her to make a truce to go to war against the White Walkers, but when Jon Snow indicated that he had pledged allegiance to the Queen of Dragons, Cersei lost his cool ... But that's not all he has in common with his namesake. Lyanna whispered to her brother Ned that her baby was named "Aegon Targaryen". There's an element of foreshadowing packed into the name that we can uncover from author George R.R. Martin's various books and letters. Game of Thrones Season 8 will be the final season of the hit fantasy-drama. They were murdered by Gregor Clegane (otherwise known as the Mountain), but they were named Aegon and Rhaenys. However, earlier in Season 7, Gill made a small hint that suggested that Jon was a legitimate child as Rhaegar Targaryen had filed for an annulment with his first wife. He at least suspected the game was up back in episode four when Bran told him, "Chaos is a ladder". Turns out Rhaegar and Lyanna tied the knot because they wanted to be together. After lovely reunion, the two had seemingly slipped back into their season one squabbling selves while Bran stared at a tree, not feeling compelled to fill his sisters in on some key Three-Eyed-Raven related details.

After returning to Dragonstone, Theon has a heart-to-heart with Jon and knows that he must overcome his own cowardice to rescue his sister Yara.

Meanwhile, in Winterfell, things fall into place for the Stark sisters, who are united in objective at last.

In addition, there are two behind-the-scenes featurettes, including a behind-the-scenes look at the conference at the dragonpit and a cast commentary on the controversial scene between Jon and Daenerys. There was a tense meeting between potential Iron Throne candidates. Everything that Daenerys has been working toward over the past few seasons is about to be whisked away because of a vision Bran had.

This simply will not stand. Tormund has giant babies to make and years of lovely memories to create with Brienne. Clementi, Jaime, Tyrion, Daenerys and Jon Snow have all met, not forgetting the Clegane / Brienne, Cleanne / La Montagne, Brienne / Jaime, Theon / Euron reunion and all the others!
