There is a new, fascinating and mind-blowing Game of Thrones theory on the internet that will drive you mad. It is so insane that it actually makes sense, but before you go on reading, we are warning you that there are spoilers ahead. So if you want to be surprised either by the book or the show, turn away now and do not come back.
The new theory goes way back to the Tower of Joy and the “Promise me, Ned” moment, when Lyanna Stark supposedly asked Ned to take care of her babies and not let them be killed by any Targaryen hater. Yes, you read that correctly, we are talking about babies, not one baby. While Jon Snow is widely believed to be the love-child of Rhaegar Targaryen and Lyanna Stark, there might be more at stake than we actually know.
What if Jon Snow had a twin sister? Absurd right? Where did the internet manage to pull this one out from? It all started on Tuesday when a Reddit user known by the (nick)name of ghostchief shared his prediction as to how season six will open: with Ned beside Lyanna’s bed promising her that her children would live.
The prediction goes like this: Ned sits beside the bed ad witnesses how the septa takes a boy away and walks him over to a man and a woman. Once the “Promise me, Ned” dialogue is over, Ned begins to cry, but then he hears another cry: a baby girl’s cry.
The boy is, obviously Jon, but who is the girl? Ghostchief’s thread does not give too much insight as to who she might be, but theories that have circulated over the years have started to re-emerge, giving true indications as to who Jon’s sibling might be.
And the winner is Meera Reed, Jojen Reed’s sister, who accompanied Brandon Stark on his journey to the Three-Eyed Raven. On an older thread from “A Forum of Ice and Fire”, a member is asking whether Ned had Howland Reed take Meera to Greywater Watch to raise her as his own. Because Ned bringing home two bastards would have definitely been awkward.
So what if this is true? What if Meera is the next piece of the puzzle that could turn the game? We have been running out of good characters lately, especially in the show, Daenerys being the only one we could trust to regain the Iron Throne, and probably Bran Stark too, but that is a little bit difficult due to his “complication”.
