Game of Thrones hit us with a (relatively expected) whammy in the season finale, finally revealing the full truth about Jon Snow’s parentage. However, the show has actually been building up to it since the very beginning of the series, and this video has collected every single hint, tease, and twist along the way to the season seven finale in one of the best fan tributes I’ve ever seen.

This is just the most recent Game of Thrones compilation video from the Georgian YouTuber named David (under the name TheGaroStudios). It meticulously organizes seven years of clues leading up to the truth that Jon Snow is actually Aegon Targaryen, the legitimate son of Rhaegar Targaryen and Lyanna Stark. It really helped remind me of some things I’d forgotten or missed, showing how well the series has laid out this major plot point over the course of several years. See for yourself:

David has produced a number of videos about Game of Thrones, including recent ones about Jaime Lannister, Benjen Stark, and Thoros of Myr. And since it’s the Friday before Labor Day weekend, we all have a bit of holiday fever. So go ahead, treat yourself and watch a bunch of them. You deserve it! You can check out the Jon Snow video below. Trust me, it’s absolutely worth the watch.

I thought AeJon ending up with Ghost, the white furred direwolf, was good foreshadowing.
