‘Game of Thrones’ Fans: Stop What You’re Doing and Ask Siri Who Jon Snow’s Father Is

Sunday’s finale of the HBO series revealed who Jon Snow’s mother is

“Game of Thrones” fans looking for more entertainment following Sunday’s Season 6 finale can turn to their iPhone.

Someone, somewhere had the bright idea to ask Siri who Jon Snow’s father is, and the responses from Apple’s AI personal assistant should amuse avid viewers of the hit HBO fantasy series.

“Let’s just say, there’s some fire in the Snow,” she replies.

When asked again, she says, “Like Ned, I promised I wouldn’t tell.”

E! Online reported that other responses include, “I’m sworn to secrecy, but I can tell you that he’s quite a singer,” as well as, “To know the history, you’ll need to do the math: R+L=J.”

R+L=J has been something “Game of Thrones” fans have been enthralled with since the early days of the series, when people started to think that Rhaegar Targaryen and Ned Stark’s sister, Lyanna, were Jon’s parents. That would mean Jon isn’t Ned’s bastard son like everyone in Westeros thinks.

On Sunday’s finale, Bran Stark has a vision of the past where Ned visits the Tower of Joy at the end of Robert Baratheon’s Rebellion. Bran visited this scene earlier in Season 6, but finally follows his dad inside during the finale.

Readers of George R.R. Martin‘s “Song of Ice and Fire” novels, on which the show is based, know the tower is where Lyanna was kept by Rhaegar Targaryen during the war. Once inside the tower, we saw Lyanna Stark, covered in blood, having just delivered a baby. And that baby has grown up to be declared the most recent King in the North.
