The fan favorite. The kid. Mr. Night Watch. Mr. everyone-thought-I-was-a-bastard-but-I’m-actually-a-Targaryen Jon Snow is definitely Martin’s baby in the show, and it seems like everything is gearing up to have him as the king of the entire realm. He’s kinda related to Daenerys Targaryen, who’s totally into him and has an army and dragons at her disposal. He’s exceedingly loyal, came back from the dead, and has extricated himself from more sticky situations than MacGyver. Then there’s the whole fact that he’s a male heir to the “rightful” rulers of the realm, the Targaryens.
However, some fan theories think that, being Ned Stark’s spiritual son, Jon is going to get done dirty just like his adoptive father did. Here’s hoping that doesn’t happen. I don’t think my heart could take it.
