Is This Blood Pattern Significant On "Game Of Thrones"?

Yes, we are already at this level. Warning: mild spoilers for the Season 6 premiere.

If you haven't yet watched the first episode of Game of Thrones Season 6, you may want to turn back now to avoid spoilers!

Season 5 of Game of Thrones ended with Jon Snow bleeding out in the snow, and Season 6 picked up right where we left off, with our fave bastard seemingly definitely dead.

Ser Davos discovers his body and has it moved, and then stares at the blood left in the snow for a moment.

Some viewers think this is significant because the blood appears to be in the shape of a dragon.

GoT Theory (ep.1): His blood looks like dragon wings. Dragon blood? Will he burn and be "reborn" as Jon Targaryen?

The dragon shape seems even clearer in the shot with Jon's body.

Let me brighten that for you.


It could also line up with the Targaryen sigil/three-headed dragon.

One fan even pointed out that Jon's blood appears to shift from wolf-shaped to dragon.

If it's true, it adds fuel to the fire that we'll soon get confirmation of the R+L=J theory, which means Jon Snow is really the son of Rhaegar Targaryen and Lyanna Stark.

The show dropped several hints about R+L=J last season, and many believe there will be a flashback to the Tower of Joy – the alleged scene of Jon's birth to Lyanna – in the next few episodes.

All of which points to the importance of Jon Snow to the overall plot, aka HE WILL DEFINITELY COME BACK TO LIFE, OK?!?!?!?
