What's This?

Last month, author of “A Song of Ice and Fire,” basis for the “Game of Thrones” TV series, George R.R. Martin revealed that a new plot twist will be incorporated in his unfinished book. “Winds of Winter” updates suggest that the plot twist can revolve around a character who is alive in his books but dead in the series. If so, the plot twist may revolve around Jon Snow, Stannis Baratheon, or Jojen Reed and his family.


It has been a fact that the book series has not been fully manifested in HBO’s “Game of Thrones.” In fact, the television rendition has differed several times from the book’s twists over the last seasons. Thankfully, the difference bred major theories from fans, especially when Martin revealed that a plot twist will be incorporated into “Winds of Winter” that could not possibly be portrayed in the series.

As reported by WinterIsComing.net, Martin initially said that the twist will involve a character who is dead on the TV series but alive in the books. The source then outlines these characters: Myrcella, Mance, Barristan, Talisa, Jojen Reed, Pyp, Gren, Stannis Baratheon, Shireen, Jon Snow, and Hizdahr zo Loraq.

From the list, the best theory suggested by the source revolves around Jojen Reed. Jojen is the son of Ned Stark’s best friend and one of the witnesses the day Lyanna Stark died, Howland Reed. The aforementioned characters could be the best bet as the participants in the twist. This is because fan theories point out that although Howland Reed partakes a strong role in the texts, his character hasn’t been showcased in the TV series.

Moreover, his son Jojen and daughter Meera have been introduced since “Game of Thrones” season three. At present, Jon Snow’s bloodline remains under scrutiny since the origin of his mother has not been revealed. It was also mentioned that The Reed castle called Greywater Watch could move.  What does “move” mean? The mystery behind it suggests that it might be the plot twist Martin seems to lean on.

Furthermore, the fact that Jojen hasthe vision power like that of Jon Snow and Bran Stark’s warg powers, it could also serve as a mystery to unfold in the upcoming book. “Winds of Winter” updates suggest a theory that since Meera has curly hair similar to Jon Snow, she may be his twin sister or sibling. Furthermore, since Howland Reed is witness to Lyana Stark’s death, it may also mean that Jon Snow’s bloodline could be verified by the Reeds.

In other news, Hollywood Reporter also reiterates that Meera was last seen sitting in the snow, the latest glimpse of the character since the “Game of Thrones” season four finale entitled “The Children.”

Does the fact that Meera was featured in “Game of Thrones” season six’s latest video mean that the plot twist will revolve around Jojen Reed, a character who died in the series but is alive in the books? Will Jon Snow’s bloodline finally be ignited in “Winds of Winter?”

    Interesting info. Horribly written article. “Deferred” means something very different than “differed,” which is the word you want in the first non-italicized paragraph. Talisa is not alive in the books but dead on the show; she doesn’t exist in the books. It’s Gren, not Green. Jojen is not a warg, and the words “that of” make no sense in the sentence that identifies him as one. Even the author’s bio has “revolving” where it should be “involving.” These are pretty poor standards for professional writing.

    Did the author even read the books? Jon Snow is DEAD in the books too.
