* More of a fridge TearJerker, but during the vision of Lyanna’s DeathByChildbirth there is blood on the pillow next to her head. This isn’t impossible, but it is a little strange considering most of the blood is concentrated on her body. Then you realize that Lyanna’s blood loss and exhaustion probably left her too weak to safely hold her son. It’s possible the midwife placed baby Jon on the pillow once he was born so that Lyanna could at least look at him.

* Aegon the Conqueror effortlessly defeated Reach and Western lords with his dragons while the Northern king bent the knee. The same thing happened when his distant descendant Daenerys came to Westeros for the same purpose

** A sort of Fridge Tragic; Sandor "fucking hopes" he doesn't see Beric again because he knows that without Thoros, Beric is in full DeathSeeker mode, and he's tired of being around to see his friends die.
*** [[spoiler: Now that Viserion nuked Eastwatch with Beric and Tormund on it, it is more likely that his wish came true.]]



* The maester that recorded his own bowel movements comes off as absurd on its own (and Sam's frustration at it turns what should have been a WhamLine into an offhanded comment). But, when you think about it, given that one of the functions of a maester was as a physician, and more modern medicine has revealed that one can find out quite a bit about one's health by observing their stool, the maester probably wasn't just doing it for [[{{Pun}} shits and giggles]] -- and may have been on to something of a medical advance in Westeros if anyone had cared to pay attention.
** Except that they were reading the personal notes of a High Septon, not a Maester.

** Connected to the above Jon we now know his real name is Aegon Targaryen, the original Aegon conquered Westeros with his two sister-wives Rhaenys and Visenya. The new Aegon has two "sisters". One is known for being a strong warrior with a named sword who has knowledge of poison and sorcery (which Visenya allegedly did) and prefers a straight forward approach to things. The other is considered more a natural beauty, graceful, and a proper lady in mannerisms and was known for loving stories and poetry (just as Sansa did at the start) but was better at working with people than Visenya, just as Sansa has learned to listen and manipulate others as needed. Also like Aegon, Jon left ruling and day to day administration in the hands of his sister while he prepared for war. They basically are the Targaryen conquerors reborn.

*** And in a fit of inspiration, this may be the reason why Ned Stark changed the course of Westerosi history by rewriting Robert Baratheon's will to "the rightful heir", knowing the clusterfuck war that would follow between the Baratheons and the Lannisters if an exact name wasn't proclaimed; when the fighting was over and all sides were weakened, ''Jon could take over by trumping birthright''. Well, after a certain incompetent prince was dealt with, of course. Ned was in fact playing the long game, which basically amounts to "wait for the houses to butcher each other, and when they've finally killed those spoiled brats (Joffrey and Viserion), bring Jon to King's landing and shove the divorce / marriage papers proving Jon Snow was in fact Aeris Targaryen II, right in the latest king's face". And unfortunately, Joffrey proved to be sadistically insane and thus Ned died for a completely unrelated reason, causing Ned's brilliant plan to go unhatched.

** Ghost is different from the rest of his siblings and is discovered having separated himself from the rest of the litter, just as Jon Snow is the [[HeroicBastard bastard son]] of Ned Stark and leaves Winterfell to join the Night's Watch. Ghost and Jon are both part of their families while also being a bit apart from their siblings too. Ghost is also an albino, while the other direwolves are mostly grey. Traditionally, noble-born bastard children can have the sigil of their house (if knighted), but with colors reversed, in this case a white direwolf on grey as opposed to the Stark's grey direwolf on white. Ghost's white fur also symbolises the fact that [[spoiler:Jon's actual father is from House Targaryen, known for having hair that's so blonde it's almost white.]]
