Wait, what?! Sean Bean, a.k.a. Ned Stark, spoiled Jon Snow’s big parenting secret on reddit a year before the season 6 finale. Find out what he said now!
Ned Stark didn’t keep his promise to Lyanna after all! Sean Bean revealed the bombshell secret about Jon Snow’s backstory on reddit a year before the epic Game of Thrones season 6 finale aired. The secret has been sitting under our noses the whole time!
During a reddit AMA in 2015, someone asked him, “Why did you not teach Jon Snow anything?” This was Sean’s response, “HAHAHAHAH! Because he’s not mine!”
OMG! Sean is so sneaky! Was he only joking or has he known about Jon Snow’s real parents the entire time? The biggest fan theory surrounding Game of Thrones has been about Jon Snow’s parents, and Sean — whether he was trying to or not — had the answer we’d all be waiting to hear for a year.
Ned Stark was the only one to know the truth about Jon Snow. His dying sister made him promise that he wouldn’t tell anyone about the true origin of her son. Ned told Jon Snow that he would tell him about his mother one day, but he was executed before he ever got the chance.
In case you missed it, the season 6 finale revealed in a flashback that Jon Snow was not the bastard son of Ned Stark, but the son of Lyanna Stark. In a recent infographic published by HBO, Rhaegar Targaryen was confirmed to be Jon Snow’s father.
That means that Daenerys is Jon Snow’s aunt! Westeros may be a big place, but our favorite characters are more connected than anyone ever thought possible!
