Last night's second episode of the final season of Game of Thrones had a lot going on--from Brienne of Tarth becoming a knight to Arya and Gendry sleeping together. However, one moment that stuck out for many fan's was the inclusion of a drinking song during a fire between some surviving knights like Jaime Lannister and Tyrion Lannister.

The song, called "Jenny's Song", may have held more than just a pretty tune to go along with the episode. Some fans think it may have foreshadowed the end of Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryen, who also found out they were related last night.

The Easter egg theory comes from the books by George R.R. Martin that the show is based on, and the theory says that the hint is found in the song's lyrics: "High in the hills of the kings who are gone, Jenny would dance with her ghosts. The ones she had lost and the ones she had found. The ones who had loved her the most.”

In the books, the song is about a woman, Jenny of Oldstones, and Duncan Targaryen (see where this is going?). Duncan Targaryen gave up the iron throne for love. Is the inclusion of the song suggesting that Dany will do the same? Or, since we now know Jon is a Targaryen, will he be the one to take the fall because of his love for Daenerys?

The inclusion of the song was purposeful in last night's episode, so we'll be waiting to see if it plays a significant role in the rest of the season.
