I'm hoping that some how Jon snow is revealed to be a lost Targaryen and he , Dani and Aria get together and ride those three Dragons to Kings Landing, The Twins and Casterly Rock.
I was about to clarify Jon's possible origin then Kry explained it. It's quite possible. Jon Snow is the only one now who can avenge his entire family. Dumbass Theon turned traitor, Sansa is pretty useless, Arya while a badass is too traumatized I'd imagine. Bran and his younger bro are well...too young still. Man they're entire family and kingdom has been decimated. Same goes for the Targaryens.

Lyanna Stark made Ned promise her something before her death. Howland Reed being the only other person alive to have heard those words (father of Bran's new mentor dude in the series
) It is widely thought that Rhaegar Targaryen fathered a son with Lyanna Stark and that that son is Jon Snow. Making him not a bastard at all (Rhaegar potentially took her as a wife, as he had more than one anyways if my memory serves me) and also Daenerys's Nephew. The book series is called 'A song of Ice and Fire' also, with Jon representing Ice and Daenerys Fire.
I read something interesting about
When is the last book slated to be completed.
Marcus Aurelius: Tell me again, Maximus, why are we here?
Maximus: For the glory of the Empire, sire.
Baked, not fried... the healthy choice.
