The past two seasons of Game of Thrones have centred around one major question: Who is Jon Snow? At the end of the latest one, we finally got a definitive answer -- but it turns out the series' biggest secret was hidden in plain sight years ago. Spoilers ahead!

Video: Game of Thrones has concluded its deep dive into how it's made with HBO's final instalment of the behind-the-scenes series The Game Revealed, which goes into how they brought the wight from Beyond the Wall to un-life. And for the designers, singling out a single wight was tougher than building an army.
Game of Thrones is a show that was built on fan theories and Reddit forums. Sadly, there aren't a lot of mysteries left to solve, although a new one was one added in the season seven finale: Does the undead dragon Viserion breathe fire or ice? The season finale's director was quizzed on it; even Neil deGrasse Tyson has weighed in. But HBO is giving us some major mixed signals... the latest being a freaking coffee cup.
Neil deGrasse Tyson must have binge-watched Game of Thrones, because he cannot stop talking about the series on Twitter, including weighing in on the most pertinent scientific question of our time: Do Game of Thrones' dragons make sense? Turns out, they're not nearly as far-fetched as the wights' use of chains.
Video: The newest instalment of HBO's Game of Thrones behind-the-scenes series, The Game Revealed, looks at the long-awaited Stark reunion -- well, one of them anyway (sorry Bran!) And I have to say, watching real-life best friends Maisie Williams and Sophie Turner try to keep straight faces during their scenes is just too much to handle.
Ezra Miller apologises for one piece of classic Flash lore that didn't make it into Justice League. HBO's adaptation of Nnedi Okorafor's Who Fears Death is moving forward. Melissa Benoist teases a new suit for Kara on Supergirl. Plus, new footage from Arrow, and casting updates for Game of Thrones and Good Omens. Behold, spoilers!
HBO have spent the last few seasons of Game of Thrones trying to keep as much as possible about the series from leaking out, but the series' ability to keep its cast's lips sealed hasn't stopped us learning a lot about seasons six and seven before they aired. That could change for the final season -- at least for the ending of the show.
Game of Thrones, if you'll forgive the pun, changed the game on fan theories. The HBO show has inspired countless Reddit threads, discussion forums, and crazy homemade conspiracy walls decked out with pictures, names, and string in hopes of tying all the pieces together. Some of those theories have actually come true, most notably "R+L=J." However, others seem like they're too dumb to exist -- and yet here we are.
