This "Game Of Thrones" Fan Theory About Tyrion Could Be Important
Is he the third head of the dragon?
This post contains mild spoilers for Season 6, Episode 2 of Game of Thrones.
In "Home", Tyrion fulfilled a lifelong dream and got up close and personal with some real, live dragons.
You see, once upon a time, Tywin Lannister was hand to the mad king Aerys – you know, Daenerys's father, who was killed by Jaime Lannister during Robert's Rebellion.
Aerys coveted Tywin's wife, Joanna, and took "liberties" with her on her wedding night. Some fans believe he took further liberties at a later date, and either had an affair with or raped Joanna, who got pregnant with Tyrion as a result.
There's also the fact that Tyrion's hair is described in the books as "so blond it seemed white", which seems to line up more with the "silver-blond" hair of the Targaryens rather than the "golden hair" of the Lannisters.
On top of all this, he's been dreaming about and obsessing over dragons for his entire life – and, after "Home", seems to be able to ~tame~ them somewhat.
Watch this video by YouTuber Alt Shift X for more on the theory and why it may or may not be true.
