So far, “Game of Thrones” season 6 has revealed that Jon Snow is indeed a Targaryen descent, but only Bran (Isaac Hempstead-Wright) has ever known about this secret from Ned Stark in the previous season. Recent reports suggest that in the upcoming “Game of Thrones” season 7 will feature another character that knows Ned Stark’s dark secret, which Jon Snow will hear about.
Ned Stark’s Dark Secret Revealed To Jon Snow?
When the “Game of Thrones” season 1 premiered in 2011, Ned Stark (Sean Bean) told Jon Snow (Kit Harrington) that Ned will talk about his mother. However, Ned Stark was beheaded in “Game of Thrones” season 1, taking the secret to his grave.
However, reports suggest that Howland Reed, the character who saves Ned Stark in the Tower of Joy in Bran’s vision, will be featured in the “Game of Thrones” season 7. House Reed is also a sworn house to the Starks with their castle, Greywatch Tower in Moat Cailin.
The theory states that in the “Game of Thrones” season 7, fans will likely see an aged Howland Reed who can recount the events in that tragic day, proving to everyone that Jon Snow is of Targaryen descent and that he is related by blood to Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke). Fans can also expect that this will also not be possible if Bran Stark and Jon Snow wouldn’t reunite in the upcoming “Game of Thrones” season 7.
In other news, leaked photos of “Game of Thrones” season 7 were shown on the web with the cast taping the upcoming episode in Spain. In the images, fans can see Emilia Clarke along with Kit Harington and other cast members landing on the shores of Westeros.
In the meantime, fans can only wait to see whether Jon Snow’s parentage is revealed in “Game of Thrones” season 7. “Game of Thrones” season 7 is slated to premiere in April 2017 on HBO.
