Disclaimer. If you, for some strange reason, have not devoured Season 6 of Game of Thrones like the rest of us, look away now, this page is practically saturated with spoilers.
Now, moving on. A YouTuber, hurleybird, has sifted through every scene that mentions or provides clues concerning the origin of the Night’s Watchman. The result? A pretty dedicated supercut that has us swimming in Kit Harington feels. We now know that Rhaegar Targaryen and Lyanna Stark are Snow’s parents, and the supercut touches on the journey to this discovery.
“I wanted to pay tribute to the three parents that Jon Snow had, Ned first and foremost, then Lyanna Stark and Rhaegar Targaryen who both died protecting him,” hurleybird says. “There’s a reason Jon had to die and be reborn and being the heir apparent to the Iron Throne just solidifies that for me.”
Accompanied by Max Richter’s tune, ‘The Departure’, this compilation vid will have you feeling a weird concoction of nostalgia, longing, and satisfaction. Take a look in the gallery above.
