Don't look now, but....

At all work meetings, I am Jon Snow – I sit with a serious face, so no one can guess that I know nothing, and I decide nothing.

Jon Snow "She is not her father, she has a good heart."

Two episodes later...

Proof that the finale was written by Catelyn Stark:

1) Sansa – Queen of the North

2) Bran – King of Westeros

3) Arya – Traveling, doing what she wants

4) Jon Snow – Forgotten bastard on the edge of the world 

Jon: Marry Daenerys, become king and live happily.

Also Jon: Ask for help in the war from the beginning, where she will lose two dragons and half the troops, and kill her in the end.  

Jaime Lannister: The Kingslayer who tried to kill Bran before he was king #calledit

Cersei: Our baby must live.

Tyrion: Don't worry, everything is fine with me.
