Game of Thrones has been one of the most popular shows on TV since it debuted on HBO back in 2011.
Such is its popularity that fans are often very quick to come up with a wide array of theories on where the show is heading. These theories range from the plausible to the downright weird.

So let’s dive straight into this one. As GOT viewers will already be vey aware – Sansa and Jon are half brother and sister… or are they?
The latter half of season six has presented the notion that Jon is not actually Ned Stark’s son but is in fact the child of Rhaegar Targaryen and Lyanna Stark. This makes him Sansa’s cousin.
The theory itself is based on a character that appears in George RR Martin’s novel A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms named Lady Ashford. In the novel, Ashford has a string of suitors that closely match up with Sansa’s suitors in the series.
If Sansa’s next relationship follows the same pattern as Lady Ashford’s then the next suitor will be a Targaryen, the only male of which is now Jon Snow.
This is strictly a theory for right now but it does seem to be a theory that carries some weight and let’s be honest, incestuous angles are not something GOT has been known to shy away from in the past.
