Throw out all of "Game of Thrones" fans, 'cause this is a Gilly-reads-aloud-level revelation.
Jon Snow's true father isn't Ned Stark or Rhaegar Targaryen, it's George R.R. Martin. Not only did Martin create the universe of "Game of Thrones," he even used to look like the guy currently playing King Jon on HBO.
Looking at GRRM now, you'd never know this...
... But fans dug up an old photo of the author, and placed it side-by-side with a photo of Kit Harington.
Here's the pic, posted by Buzzfeed's Ryan Broderick, who wrote, "wanna see something wicked f*cked up?"
Fans reacted in their own special ways.

So much makes sense now. And yet, there are so many new questions. We can't expect answers on this front in the Season 7 finale, but we are expecting some other revelations.
Season 7, Episode 7, "The Dragon and the Wolf," aka the finale, airs this Sunday, Aug. 27 at 9 p.m. on HBO.
