    Something Huge Happened In The "Game Of Thrones" Premiere And People Are Screaming

    Warning: contains spoilers!!!

    This post contains spoilers for the Game Of Thrones Season 8 premiere. Proceed at your own risk!

    Oh my god, Game of Thrones Season 8 is finally here!! After nearly two years of waiting, we're back in Westeros. There was a lot going on in the episode, but for now let's talk about Jon Snow.


    And not just any dragon, but Rhaegal — the dragon named for his father, Rhaegar Targaryen.

    Dany, for her part, was really into Jon's dragon-riding, although she didn't know *quite* what it meant (other than that she was horny for him).

    Meanwhile, the dragons looked on, seeming to sense ~something~ was up.

    The whole sequence had people feeling all sorts of things (and making a lot of jokes)...

    But the dragon-riding (in more ways than one) wasn't the only big moment connected to Jon's true identity in this episode — in fact, it wasn't even the biggest. Because Jon finally learned THE TRUTH!

    Sam told him everything about who his parents are — right in front of Ned and Lyanna's statues (yes, I cried!).

    It sure will be interesting to see the aftermath of the big reveal, which we'll hopefully get plenty of in the next episode. For now...we have memes.

    When it comes to Jon Snow the DNA test determined, “ you are a Targaryen!” #DemThrones

    #GameofThrones Sam: You're Aegon Targaryen! Jon: No way! Sam: Yes way! Jon: I am Jon Snow son of Ned Stark! Ned and Lyanna *from beyond the grave*:

    Sam: you’re aegon Targaryen Elia Martell, rising from her grave: #GameofThrones

    The fact that Jon leaped straight to "My dad lied to me?" and not "OH MY GOD I FUCKED MY AUNT" says everything about Westeros. #GameOfThrones

    Jon Snow doing the math after the news from Sam. #GameofThrones

    Brace yourselves. We're in for a bumpy (dragon) ride from here on out...

    Jon ride a dragon, get some front, reunite with him family and him best friend, then him best friend just drop the bomb seh him a the true king and him a fuck him aunty...
