Will Jon Snow Ride a Dragon in Season 8 of 'Game of Thrones'?

By Mustafa Gatollari

Ever since it was revealed in Game of Thrones (and a long time before it was official, official) that Jon Snow was a Targaryen, people wanted to know when the Winterfell-raised, member of the Night's Watch was going to saddle up and ride one of those giant leather chickens into battle.

Especially after Season 7's tragic turn that saw Viserion morphed into a Wight or White Walker or Iceified version of his dragon self, and the Night King hopped on his back and began destroying the white wall, the thought that popped into everyone's heads was, "Holy f--k are we gonna see a dragon rider battle?"

And even if you didn't think that last season, well, I hate to break it to you, but you're thinking it now, because it would be awesome.

So, will Jon snow ride a dragon in Season 8?

Although nothing's certain, the show's definitely done a lot of foreshadowing to lead us to believe that he will. He did approach Rhaegal, cautiously, and the dragon was totally into Jon because he could sniff the Targaryen blood in him. Seeing as Dany's a Targaryen and she's riding dragons, and Jon's leading an army and will be in a position to rally the troops, it seems kinda insane that he wouldn't hop on a dragon to get some soldier blood flowing.

I mean wouldn't you want your general flying on a dragon in front of you before you're about to plunge your sword into some monster's neck?
