Tons of spoilers, yo.

Did Jon Snow have a twin sister?

Welcome to the wonderful world of Game of Thrones fan theories where anything is possible, everyone is everyone's brother/sister/lover/murderer and no one ever dies.

The most recent theory to ride the bloody waves of season five's finale is based around the prevailing R+L=J theory, which basically holds that Jon Snow is the son of Rhaegar Targaryen and Lyanna Stark. If you don't know about this, then watch the following helpful video:



Building off that theory and the presumed death of Jon Snow in the final scenes of season five, a new theory has sprung up, delicately explained by Mashable.

Here's where things get even more crazy. Some people are now combining an old theory – that Meera Reed, the girl currently with Bran, is actually Jon Snow's twin sister – with this other theory about Jon Snow's parentage; hence the R+L=J+M.

Despite the fact that Jon Snow looks a hell of a lot older than Meera in the TV series, this impressively in-depth Wiki of Ice and Fire lists the birth years of both characters as 283 AC – which would make them the same age. When you add in the fact that Lyanna Stark is also listed by the Wiki as dying in 283 AC (and Meera's supposed father Howland Reed was with Ned at the Tower of Joy on the day they went to find Lyanna), it seems like there's more than enough ground for a good old fan theory.



You know Meera, she's the gal with the bow and the sister of the mysterious Jojen. They weren't seen this past season and are probably still just hanging around with that old tree dude, who turned out to be the three-eyed crow.



If this theory is true, it basically means three things.

1. Jon Snow might actually be dead, despite mounting evidence to the contrary.

2. Meera's got a much bigger role to play than we thought.

3. Game of Thrones stole the plot of Star Wars and added lots of sex.



"My father has it, I have it, my sister has it, and they all did each other." — Jon Snow, maybe

Game of Thrones never really has an off season.

After a gut wrenching season finale, like the one we got last month, the tide turns and instead of new episodes and outrage we get fan art and collections.

So here's a compilation to help you count down the days until we finally know what the eff happens after that final scene.

Game of thrones memes season 5 finale sets show record.

So much for all those people who swore they were done watching the show, June 14's season finale was watched by more people than any other episode in the show's history.

According to Moviefone :

the June 14 Episode 10, "Mother's Mercy" -- which killed off a ton of people and blinded one of our badass BFFs -- had 8.11 million viewers. That makes it the most-watched GOT episode to date. And that was even opposite the NBA Finals Game 5!

The Season 5 premiere held the record before this with just barely 8 million viewers. Episode 1, "The Wars to Come," also had a series high 4.2 rating, which is still slightly above "Mother's Mercy's" 4.1 rating. But who really cares about that, since that 18-49 demo is more important to shows that run ads. The bigger number is the overall audience, and with 8.11 million in the U.S., that's the most for HBO's dragon drama so far.
