Brace yourselves. A fan’s theory about the opening scene of ‘Game of Thrones’ season 6 has led to more speculation about an evolving theory concerning Jon Snow’s storyline that could change the landscape of the entire show.
Jon Snow may be “dead,” but we have a feeling we haven’t seen (or heard) the last of him. Seriously, so many questions about Jon Snow’s parentage have been left unanswered. Well, a fan has a prediction about the opening moments of Game of Thrones season 6, and it’s pretty mind-blowing. This theory has been spread around and connects to a bigger possible prophecy that is both shocking and kind of makes sense!
Reddit user ghostchief posted a very Star Wars-esque theory about the start of season 6. The scene sounds like it’s the moment Lyanna Stark is supposedly giving birth to Jon Snow, but there’s a twist. “The dialogue swells and clarifies to her voice, ‘Promise me, Ned.’ Her eyes slowly close. Ned begins to sob. He raises his head to the sound of another high pitch noise coming from the foot of the bed. A baby girl,” the Reddit user writes.
Wait, but if Lyanna gave birth to a baby girl, that means Jon has a sister. Everyone knows the R+L= J theory, and this plays right into that. Huffington Post helped evolve the theory that Meera Reed could be Jon Snow’s twin sister. Remember, Ned and Meera’s “father,” Howland Reed, fought alongside each other during Robert’s Rebellion, and they were the only two to survive when they went to the Tower of Joy to save Lyanna.
Back in 2012, a fan posted a theory found on Game of Thrones forum that suggests Howland took Meera back to Greywater Watch to raise Meera as his daughter while Ned took Jon back to Winterfell. Honestly, it would make sense if they were twins. Jon and Meera have similar features — curly brown hair and brown eyes. Also, according to the Wiki of Ice and Fire, Jon and Meera were born the very same year in 283 AC. Gasp!
Who knows if this theory is true. We’ll just have to wait and see! There are lots of theories out there that make complete sense, and we really don’t know anything until George R.R. Martin finishes/releases The Winds of Winter and the rest of his books. Hurry up, George. It’s been forever and a day.
