How the latest Game of Thrones episode might have spoiled the finale

"Jenny of Oldstones" is based on "Jenny's Song" from George R.R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire book series.

Sound familiar? Well, given that we now know Jon is actually a Targaryen (and actually the first male heir to the Iron Throne) this may well foreshadow what is going to happen - that he may forfeit his claim to the throne through his love for Dany.

FLORENCE WELCH was relieved to be given a second chance to sing on Game Of Thrones after she rejected the hit show during her "blurry years". "The ones who had loved her the most".

In the books, only one lyric from "Jenny's Song" is known: "High in the halls of the kings who are gone, Jenny would dance with her ghosts".

There are a few obvious parallels to Jenny's story and the show's two main leads, Jon and Daenerys. Florence and the Machine covered the song for the show's closing credits, making them the only pop group featured in the final season (so far).

The third episode of Game of Thrones will air next Monday. If they somehow find a way to kill the Night King, they still have Cersei to deal with, who is sitting comfortably in King's Landing with 20,000 troops at her command. Aerys ended up as king even though his brother Duncan was first in line to succession.

So there are a couple of aspects of "Jenny's Song" that could predict what's to come. He was also betrothed to a Baratheon daughter, but he forfeited his claim to the throne in order to marry for love. It also comes right before the scene where Jon Snow reveals to Daenerys that they are related.

This is certainly a complicated idea, dripping with secrets and references, and it proves that showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss may have had their minds on the Prince That Was Promised prophecy while crafting season 8 of Game of Thrones. It's arguably actually about love that was lost. If it winds up that "Jenny's Song" is nothing more than a tune sung at an emotional time, at least Podrick actor Daniel Portman got to prove he has the voice of an angel.
