Expect to see more of Rhaegar Targaryen in 2019 Image: Twitter
We don't mean to alarm you, but Jon Snow's real daddy might just be on the move, and we have pictorial evidence. Rhaegar Targaryen, the man who took the last season of Game of Thrones (GoT) by storm with just a five-second cameo, might just be coming back. And though it's apparently a secret, a now-deleted Instagram post has caused a stir.
Wilf Scolding, the actor who plays the silver-haired Targaryen boy in the show, recently posted a picture of him checking in at a Belfast hotel. GoT-heads obviously know that Belfast is currently the home of all GoT action as the cast and crew have been shooting there for months now. And there's only one reason Scolding can be there, and that's to wear the silver wig again.
Scolding deleted the picture soon after posting it, but not before fans could get a screengrab. And now we know that we'll see Rhaegar in GoT Season 8, but will his story arc get more screen time than last season?
One of the biggest revelations in Game of Thrones has been revolving Rhaegar. The Targaryen king, who happens to be Daenerys Targaryen's brother, was killed off by Robert Baratheon before the series began, but has been referenced countless number of times in the show.
It was revealed in Season 6 that GoT main man Jon Snow, who is thought to be Ned Stark's bastard, was the son of Rhaegar and Lyanna Stark. But it was widely assumed that Lyanna was abducted and raped by the Targaryen king. Season 8 revealed that Rhaegar and Lyanna were in love and had been married. This also meant that Jon Snow was not a bastard, but a rightful Targaryen heir.
It's not clear if more details about Jon's family would be revealed in Season 8, but Twitter is still processing that there's more of Rhaegar to come.
