The Game of Thrones season 7 finale aired last night, and it was something. There was death, betrayal, incest, dragons, and it was all jam packed into the longest episode in the history of the show. People were understandably excited on social media for the last fix of Game of Thrones until season 8 airs in 2018, possibly even 2019.
Things started off with some awkward reunions, including Brienne and the Hound.
There was a brief moment of joy...
Jamie finally stuck up for himself.
We learned that Bran doesn't know as much as he lets on.
And then IT FINALLY HAPPENED, and we were all expecting it to be way sexier.
But honestly, we were all still OK with it.
But it was bittersweet.
But that wasn't even the end of this episode.
Now... we wait.
Episode 5 of Season 7 of Game of Thrones, "Eastwatch," was packed full of some pretty incredible moments and fans are already chomping at the bit for next week's episode.
However, the most important detail from the show probably flew right past you, despite the fact that it seemingly foreshadows one of the biggest possible conflicts in the series, and blows a huge point in the plot wide open.
This is a massive potential spoiler, so if you're the type of person to get annoyed by that, then it's probably best you don't keep reading.
But of course you can't help yourself, so I want you to sit back and consider last night's scene between Samwell Tarly and Gilly as she pores over the diary of High Septon Maynard. Tarly's a bit preoccupied with his work, as is usually the case, when Gilly asks him a seemingly innocuous question:
"What does annulment mean?"
Sam, too busy to pay serious attention to what Gilly asks, says it means ending one marriage so a person can marry someone else. Then Gilly follows up and says that the annulment was for a "Prince Raggar," and since Jon Snow is the love child of Prince Rhaeger and Lyanna Stark, that means that the Targaryen King very well may have technically ended his marriage, married a woman he was madly in love with (Lyanna) and birthed a son who is the rightful heir to the Iron Throne.
