As we gear up for the next season of “Game of Thrones,” here is perhaps my favorite scene from last season.
We finally learn what happened with Ned Stark when he came to rescue his sister Lyanna in the Tower of Joy. This scene is both exhilarating and heartbreaking. Here we have Lyanna, who is dying in a pool of her own blood, asking Ned to protect her newborn son from the wrath of her former betrothed.
Although we’ve learned Jon Snow’s true parentage, there’s still some questions in this scene, including what Lyanna whispered to Ned.
One thing is for certain, Jon Snow has the blood of a king – and the blood of the dragon.
