Game of Thrones’ latest season is shaping up to be insane – and, after episode two – we’re finally getting what we’ve all been waiting for: Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryen’s first meeting.
In episode two, we saw both Daenerys and Jon Snow wanted the same thing – for Jon Snow to go to Dragonstone. But – for two completely different reasons.
Daenerys wants Jon Snow to come and “bend the knee,” declaring her his Queen. She also wants to have Jon Snow as an ally – so that Daenerys can have the North behind her when she takes the Iron Throne. But, Jon wants to go to Dragonstone for a completely different reason. While studying at the Citadel, Samwell Tarly discovered that Dragonstone sits on an entire mountain made of dragonglass – which, kills White Walkers, as we’ve learned in the past seasons.
Jon Snow’s one true desire was to defeat the White Walkers and save everyone and their mothers – because, they are f*cking coming guys – and fast.
While Tyrion basically said Jon Snow was loyal AF and a good guy so that Daenerys would meet him – he also sent out the letter to Winterfell requesting Jon travel to Dragonstone.
But – in the letter, he left out a huge detail.
Game of Thrones staff shared the letter in its entirety to Twitter and if you look closely, a vital detail is missing.
The letter reads:
Queen Daenerys Targaryen, First of Her Name, invites you to Dragonstone. My queen commands the combined forces of Dorne and the Reach, an Ironborn fleet, legions of Unsullied, a Dothraki horde and three dragons. The Seven Kingdoms will bleed as long as Cersei sits on the Iron Throne. Join us. Together we can end her tyranny. I appeal to you, one bastard to another — for all dwarves are bastards in their fathers’ eyes.
Tyrion Lannister Hand of the Queen
Not once in the letter does it mention that Jon Snow is going to Dragonstone to “bend the knee.” Not once.
So – basically, he may be going there for some drama. We know how Daenerys is with her power and – who can blame her? The girl has been tortured throughout her childhood and now, she’s the HBIC, bow down. But, what happens if Jon Snow – King of the North – does not want to give up his “king title” to bow down to Daenerys?
But, to be honest, I don’t think Jon would be super resistant to bending the knee because, like he said, he didn’t even want to be King in the first place – everyone in the North wanted him to be. So, he may bend the knee anyway. Yet, it’s definitely suspect that Tyrion left out this detail, maybe to ensure that Jon would come 100%.
That Tyrion, always drinking and knowing things.
