Many "Game of Thrones" fans were surprised following the end of Season 6, episode 2 where Jon Snow returned to the land of the living. With the said character's recent resurrection, several fan theories have emerged that teased of potential storylines for Snow including the truth behind his true parents.
Speculations of Snow's resurrection began soon after the Season 5 finale episode of HBO's "Game of Thrones." Several fans were in disbelief that Kit Harington's character has been killed off in the series. However, Melisandre's (Carice van Houten) magic has helped to bring him back to life in Season 6, episode 2 of the series. Snow's future, as well as his past, continues to be the subject of story speculations and fan theories. A report posted on Express has hinted that an upcoming episode will provide a glimpse of Snow's past.
"Game of Thrones" Season 6, episode 3 titled "Oathbreaker" is said to feature a flashback scene that will show how Snow ended up under the care of Ned Stark. One of the popular theories over Snow's birth involved the formula "R+L=J." This is a representation that Harington's character is the son of Rhaegar Targaryen and Stark's sister Lyanna.
The trailer released for the said episode has also shown a young man involved in a tense encounter with a Targaryen knight at the Tower of Joy. Many fans speculated that the young man in the clip is the young Ned, as stated in the same report. Further storyline speculations hinted that Ned promised his sister that he will look after her newborn son, believed to be Snow.
Meanwhile, now that Snow has returned to the land of the living, several fan theories over his future have also emerged. Storyline speculations posted on The Hollywood Reporter included Snow engaged in a battle at Winterfell, as well as an encounter with the Night King's undead army. A family reunion will also happen with Snow's resurrection.
Harington's character may also meet another family member, especially if the "R+L=J" theory proves to be correct. With the said theory, Snow would end up as Daenerys Targaryen's (Emilia Clarke) nephew. With Dany determined to travel to Westeros, she may get to meet her long lost nephew Snow.
At this point, it is still unclear whether any of the story speculations and fan theories will happen in the HBO show. Fans would have to look forward to upcoming episodes to learn more about the beloved characters of the series. "Game of Thrones" Season 6 airs every Sunday on HBO.
