RTFM - now that the television series has 'caught up' with the book series, with pointed differences, all bets are ON! Adding fuel to the dragon ice fire the book/wiki rumor is that Jon Snow is the son of Robert Baratheon and a Targaryen. Eddard Stark was just taking the heat for the his dude, the newly conquering King Robert. Couldn't have people know one of your babies' mommas was from the royal family you just overthrew, eh? And if the Lannisters heard such rumours over the years, may explain Cercei's twisted justification for her behavior - but still two wrongs don't make a right as the High Sparrow noted, yowza. The other "theory" is that he's Ed's sister Lanna Stark's son and Rhaegar Targaryen. Since Ed was Robert's right hand man, again rumors of screwing with the sworn enemy would not go down well, especially with the high houses picking sides. Either way that means Dany is either Jon's half sister or first cousin. Makes things kinda sticky going forward, to say the least...

I guess they were no more torturous than recently hearing his men's screams as they died burning in their tents that morning...or the groans of the wounded/starving, freezing to death as they effectively lay stranded in an impasse...

Shireen reading "The Dance of Dragons" shortly before being burned alive felt a bit meta to me. How many screenwriters giggled or groaned as they put that scene together? Personally, my skin crawled from my scalp down...:-P
