Sorry Dany, but after Sunday night's episode of "Game of Thrones," it appears Jon Snow has a stronger claim to the Iron Throne.

During a scene where Samwell and Gilly poured over the journals of High Septon Maynard, Gilly discovered Maynard issued an annulment to Prince Rhaegar before marrying him to someone else -- whose name wasn't mentioned -- in Dorne.

Unfortunately, the moment left fans watching at home screaming at the television, as Sam cut her off in frustration before she could keep reading an entry that could have huge implications for the show.

Why, you ask?

Though the show avoided explicitly saying who Prince Rhaegar tied the knot with, all signs point to Lyanna Stark, Ned Stark's sister. By now, we know Lyanna is Jon Snow's mother. Connecting the dots, this heavily implies Jon is the legitimate son of Rhaegar and Lyanna, making him a true blooded Targaryen.

Also adding fuel to the "Jon is a Targaryen" fire: Drogon's cool reaction to his touch during "Eastwatch," something Dany definitely took notice of as well.

If the rumors are true, this would also mean Jon isn't the bastard he thought he was and is, in fact, heir to the throne. As Rhaegar's younger sister, Dany's claim is a little further down the line now.
