R + L = J

I am a super huge fan of the Song of Ice and Fire series of books by George R R Martin and the Game of Thrones TV series on HBO. I was super sad because season 6 is playing now and I had missed season 5. I got the HBO Now app for a month free and binge watched season 5 and episodes 1, 2 and 3 of season 6. The writers of the show caught up to the books and I have no idea what will happen on season 6. The last book Dance with Dragons ended with Jon Snow being stabbed but he is brought back from the dead on the show and has left the Night's Watch.

 I like the fan theory of R + L = J meaning that Rhaegar Targaryen and Lyanna Stark are Jon's parents. The writers of the show seem to like the theory too since Bran watched visions of the past on episode 3 and young Ned is seen running up tower steps in answer to his sister Lyanna's screams.

So the theory is that Daenerys is Jon Snow's aunt. There are three dragons. Daenerys rides Drogon. Jon Snow would ride Rhaegal but who would ride Viserion? Another secret Targaryen? Tyrion Lannister seems to have an affinity for the dragons. He unchains Viserion and Rhaegal and they choose not to have Half Man for a dragon snack. Anyway, I am enjoying season 6 and excited to see what will happen next. Now if only George R R Martin would finish writing the next book.
