So Season 7 of Game of Thrones has finally come to a close but not before it gave fans enough gossip to fill in that agonizing wait period. This episode officially gave fans what they had been waiting for since 7 freaking seasons- Jon Snow’s real parentage and name! Well, if you are getting that itch to correct me and say it’s Aegon Targaryen, I’m just not emotionally ready for it yet and neither is Twitter.
People are ecstatic that we finally know Jon’s real name and given the multiple references to Aegon, the conqueror, the name will have significance but it’s just not so easy to let go.
All hail Aegon 6th of his name King of the Andals, The First men andLord of the Seven Kingdoms, Protector of the realm.#GameOfThronesFinale— therealHR (@the_fatsakuragi) August 28, 2017

Let us also take a moment to acknowledge the rift between Ned and Catelyn Stark’s relationship:
Aegon Targaryen just doesn’t have the same ring to it:

Doesn’t feel right that Jon Snow’s real name is Aegon Targaryen. He deserves better.— Ollie (@BehanCFC) August 20, 2017
Well, it made it all the more uncomfortable.
Gotta love that we finally got to see the #GoT sex scene we’ve been waiting for while at the same time Bran explained that it’s incest.— Adam Crowley (@_adamcrowley) August 28, 2017

Imagine, Aegon Targaryen not knowing anything… uncomfortable, right?
