There can be no doubt now – Jon Snow is a Targaryen. Emilia Clarke posted a video of her co-star Kit Harington flapping around in his heavy cloak on a cliff at the filming location of Dragonstone.

Emilia wrote: "I mean, JEEEZE, one pet of a dragon and he thinks he's one of them."

In the 5th episode Eastwatch, Daenerys returns to Dragonstone after blasting the Lannister army and Tyrell gold to smithereens on the Roseroad with the help of Drogon. Jon is there waiting for her on the cliff, where he approaches the massive dragon, takes off his glove, and – gasp! – pets it. As you do a puppy. Daenerys is shocked, but we're not.

No one has actually acknowledged this out loud on Game of Thrones, but we all know that Jon Snow is the son of Rhaegar Targaryen and Lyanna Stark. Drogon must know what Jon is; they recognise their own kind.
