'Game of Thrones': Was a Longtime Fan Theory Proven? Or Muddled Even More?

We’ll have follow-up discussions on Game of Thrones season finale all week, as well as more speculation about how the final two seasons play out. However, the big question of the night with big questions is this: Was the R+L=J fan theory right? In the season finale, “The Winds of Winter,” Bran returned to the Tower of Joy, where he witnessed his father, Ned Stark, have a conversation with his sister, Lyanna Stark, about her new son, Jon Snow, confirming what many had already assumed: Lyanna Stark is Jon Snow’s real mother.

What Lyanna whispered to Ned, however, remains a secret, although she did say never to mention it to Robert, because Robert would kill the child.

Does that mean that Robert is Jon’s real father? As in, the R in R+L=J? is Robert Baratheon? Many on people on Twitter believed so.

On the other hand, others believe that Lyanna told Ned not to tell Robert because Robert would have Jon Snow killed because Jon is a Targaryen’s. In other words, Jon Snow is Rhaegar Targaryen’s son. Just as many people believe the original R+L=J theory was confirmed in “The Winds of Winter.”

We’ll have to wait until next season (at least) to find out (although, he’s totally Rhaegar’s son).
