Game Of Thrones Fans Think Jon Snow Will Ride A Dragon In Season Eight

At long last, the much anticipated trailer for the final season of Game of Thrones is finally here. Of course, everyone is very excited to find out what happens, but what did we actually learn from the trailer?

Well, if the good folks on Twitter are to be believed, one detail stood out above all others. Jon Snow looks like he is finally going to get on the back of a dragon and go in to battle. Badass.

To be fair, whilst that would be quite a development - not least because it hasn't been seen yet - but also because that cements his position as a Targaryen. After all, he has the blood of a dragon rider in his veins.

Hopefully someone might tell him that he's shagging his auntie in the process. Come on, Westeros.

Anyway, one shot in the trailer shows Jon Snow (Kit Harington) and the aforementioned auntie Daenerys Targaryen walking towards the two - spoiler alert - remaining dragons.


Remember one of them got poleaxed with an icy spear by the Night King? Of course you do, it was devastating.

Oh, and let's not forget that there's an ice dragon on the way, too. So much to look forward to.

Where were we? Oh yeah. Jon Snow and Dany Targaryen are seen walking towards the dragons, and whilst we've seen Dany and Jon ride the same dragon before, this doesn't look like it is going to happen this time.


It looks as if Jon is getting a dragon all to himself. Well, at least that gives them double the chance against the ice dragon and means that if one goes down - heaven forbid - they both don't die at the same time.

Incidentally, another thing to remember is that one of Daenerys dragon kids (weird, to say the least) is actually named after Jon's father, Rhaegar Targaryen.


Dany had three dragons. Drogon, Viserion, and Rhaegal. One is named after her ex-husband Khal Drogo, the other after her brother (remember him?) Viserys, and the third after her brother.

That means that the dragon-riding gene is well within Jon's make-up. He's got to do it.

Other things that seem to be worth mentioning in the trailer is that Jaime Lannister has been spotted holding a sword in what looks like his right hand (that's interesting because it got lopped off, remember?) and seems to be well on his way to defying the rule of his evil sister, Cersei.

Jaime claims to have made a promise to fight for the living, and it looks like he's gonna do that, whether or not Cersei wants him too.

He can be seen sailing north - interestingly on Greyjoy ships - to join the big battle.

Bring on April, we need more answers.

The eighth and final season of Game of Thrones will air on 15 April on Sky Atlantic and NOW TV
