The revelation of Jon’s true lineage came when Sam Tarly (John Bradley) told Jon he’s in actuality Aegon Targaryen, true heir to the Iron Throne, the son of Lyanna Stark (Aislin Franciosi) and Rhaegar Targaryen (Wilf Scolding), and not a bastard as previously believed.
Though initially angered father Ned Stark (Sean Bean) lied to him his entire life, Jon came to understand he would have been murdered by Robert Baratheon (Mark Addy) were he not spared by the lie.
But the incestuous twist inspired an instant meltdown on Twitter:
