WARNING: This article contains spoilers from Game of Thrones season eight, episode one.
More than 17 million people tuned in to watch the premiere of Game of Thrones season 8, which saw secret lovers Jon Snow (played by Kit Harington) and Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) mount dragons together.
But what viewers did not see in the first episode was the moment the King of the North seemingly confirmed his ties to the Targaryen.
Since the airing of the show, HBO has released a deleted scene which supports a theory about Jon and the dragons.
In the scene, the step-brother of Arya Stark (Maisie Williams) and the Mother of Dragons are seen walking side-by-side in the snow following the flight.
Turning to Daenerys, Jon quipped: “You’ve completely ruined horses for me.”
He then added, in behind-the-scenes footage: “It almost seemed like he knew where I wanted to go.”
Later, in the episode Jon discovered he is, in fact, a Targaryen – the son of Daenerys’ brother Rhaegar Targaryen and Ned Stark’s sister, Lyanna.
Samwell Tarly (John Bradle) delivered the life-changing news to him after discussing his parentage with Bran Stark (Isaac Hempstead-Wright), who is also known as the Three-Eyed Raven.
Of course, Jon did not receive the information well and actor Kit Harington even hinted Sam could be in danger following the revelation.
Discussing the scene in an interview with Entertainment Weekly, the 32-year-old actor divulged: “For that moment, Samwell is nothing to him.
“Jon would disown this friend and beat him up if he was trying to lie to him about this. He’s quite threatening.”
Given his long friendship with Samwell, it is unlikely the former Lord Commander of the Night’s Watch would harm him.
However, the same cannot be said for his lover/aunt, Daenerys, as she has been adamant she is the rightful heir to the Iron Throne.
She has made no secret of her desire to reclaim the ceremonial chair and has killed numerous people, including her own brother, in her quest to take it.
But Jon is the true heir to the throne not her and this information could eventually come between the two of them.
Of the Iron Throne, Kit said: “He doesn’t fking want it. He doesn’t want that fking information. He doesn’t want to know.
“He has no ambition for the throne. He’s never wanted that.”
He continued: “The end of the world might be coming soon but at least he’s in love with somebody and knows who he is, and then comes this sledgehammer.”
Game of Thrones continues Sunday on HBO in the USA and the following day on Sky Atlantic in the UK.
