Nothing is #confirmed just yet, but I’ve seen enough: Jon isn’t just the King in the North. He isn’t just the rightful King of the Seven Kingdoms. He isn’t just the prince that was promised, the last hero, or Azor Ahai. He is the Song of Ice and Fire. Not only does he have Stark and Targaryen heritage, but he was forged into a man in the cold of Castle Black and reborn by the Lord of Light’s heat. He’s killed a White Walker and touched a dragon. Game of Thrones has dropped hints like this before, and fans have speculated about Jon as the show’s hero for years (they’ve done that for everyone). But Jon’s encounter with Drogon, Gilly’s discovery, and the journey beyond the Wall are overwhelming evidence: This was the episode where the show officially tipped its hand. The prince that was promised has been promised.
Part of course:
