In “The Dragon and the Wolf,” we were given confirmation of what we’d suspected for years: R plus L really does equal J, or, A, rather. Jon Snow is really Aegon Targaryen, the product of a loving and lawful marriage between Rhaegar Targaryen and Lyanna Stark and the rightful heir to the Iron Throne. Though their days ended long ago, and their actions led to the needless deaths of thousands across Westeros, there was consensus this week: Rhaegar and Lyanna were the winners of the Season 7 finale. The Talk the Thrones team discussed the implications of the union and its significance in the world of Ice and Fire.
