Oh my god,Game of ThronesSeason 8 is finally here!! After nearly two years of waiting, we’re back in Westeros. There was a lot going on in the episode, but for now let’s talk about Jon Snow.
First of all, JON SNOW RODE A FREAKING DRAGON!!!
And not just any dragon, but Rhaegal – the dragon named for his father, Rhaegar Targaryen.
Dany, for her part, was really into Jon’s dragon-riding, although she didn’t know *quite* what it meant (other than that she was horny for him).
Meanwhile the dragons looked on, seeming to sense ~something~ was up.
The whole sequence had people feelings all sorts of things (and making a lot of jokes)…
But the dragon-riding (in more ways than one) wasn’t the only big moment connected to Jon’s true identity in this episode – in fact, it wasn’t even the biggest. Because Jon finally learned THE TRUTH!
Sam told him everything about who his parents are – right in front of Ned and Lyanna’s statues (yes, I cried!).
It sure will be interesting to see the aftermath of the big reveal, which we’ll hopefully get plenty of in the next episode. For now…we have memes.
Brace yourselves. We’re in for a bumpy (dragon) ride from here on out…
