Is Jon Snow Riding A Dragon In The Season 7 Trailer?
We recently got a special look behind the scenes with HBO's release of "Inside Game of Thrones: A Story in Cloth". This video is meant to show us what goes into the making of the amazing costumes the show boasts from the perspective of GoT designer Michele Clapton. This is really cool, I mean, the work that goes into the making of Game of Thrones is amazing! However, something bigger might have been given away and it concerns our favorite character, Jon Snow.
The Last Harpy just released a video breaking down this theory.
Thanks to Bran's Three-eyed Raven abilities, we now know Jon Snow is the son of Lyanna Stark and Rhaegar Targaryen. Thanks to "A Story in Cloth", we now may see Jon exploring his Targaryen roots.
In HBO's video, actor Kit Harrington (Jon Snow) is seen standing on a grassy cliffside, presumably in Dragonstone, presumably in the same spot where we saw Tyrion in the trailer. We get a look at Tyrion's shocked face as Dany's three dragons fly in and out of screen. However, unlike Tyrion, Jon, most likely viewing the dragons in action, is not fazed at all. This means he may have a special bond with them like his Stark blood let him have with the direwolf Ghost
For that matter, why does Tyrion look so bewildered? He has seen the dragons (and their rapid growth) before and has even interacted with them close up. This means he may be seeing something we're not privy to just yet. What if Jon, like Dany, is riding a dragon?
You heard that right. Jon Snow could be RIDING ON THE BACK OF A DRAGON come season 7. Sorry for the all-caps. I'm that excited.
This could make sense. Tyrion is seen alone on the cliffside in the trailer, but he could be looking at Jon in action.
Jon riding a dragon also fits into the "Three Headed Dragon" theory; that the dragon is not one person, but rather Daenerys, Tyrion, and Jon. The King in the North could be fulfilling his destiny by riding the dragons and having a unique bond with them like he does with his direwolf. This is only speculative, but totally possible.

Kit Harrington is seen with Emilia Clarke (Daenerys) interacting with a dragon prop head. These props are used as stand-ins, as the dragons we see onscreen are obviously CGI. But the fact that Harrington is seen with one of these heads means he definitely meets and even touches at least one of the dragons.
What do you make of this theory? Is Jon going to fly?
