By Bill Bradley HBO Jon Snow - Doesn't know much. 270 "Game of Thrones" fans, we thought we had George R.R. Martin  figured out, but now it turns out we know even less than Jon Snow. The theory about Jon Snow's parentage  is the most popular one out there. At this point, everyone pretty much accepts and expects R+L=J  to happen, meaning Snow's parents are actually Rhaegar Targaryen and Lyanna Stark. The show even hinted at it in Season 5 .  But now, thanks to one new theory, everything we thought we knew is about to change:  The theory (Part 1): Lyanna Stark had twins. Image:  gifatron  Whaaaaaaaattttt!!!????? (Warning! This post may contains many more spontaneous "Whaaaaaaaattttts.") Redditor  ghostchief  recently offered an interesting prediction for the opening scene of Season 6 , thinking it could be a flashback featuring Ned Stark and his sister Lyanna as she dies giving birth. It's  a scene that's already expected  in the upcoming season, but the Redditor's interpretation of it is more shocking than the Red Wedding : The dialogue swells and clarifies to [Lyanna's] voice, "Promise me, Ned." Her eyes slowly close. Ned begins to sob. He raises his head to sound another high pitch noise coming from the foot of the bed. A baby girl. Whaaaaaaatttttt!!!!????? (Sorry, we warned ya.) What if R+L= twins? But wait, is that even possible? It turns out, yup. Jon would obviously be one of the twins -- the boy twin for everyone keeping track at home. But who could be the other? Dany? Probably not. She's Daenerys Stormborn,  aka her birth is a well-known story where her mom died during a great storm. What about someone who hasn't been introduced yet? Sure, that could be a possibility ... if there wasn't another character who already fits the role nearly perfectly: The theory (Part 2): Jon Snow's twin sister is Meera Reed. (R+L=J+M) Not a lot is known about what happened at the Tower of Joy, the place where, according to R+L=J, Lyanna made Ned promise to take care of Jon. Supposedly, Ned Stark and six of his main dudes fought three Kingsguard whom they found guarding the tower. From that fight, only two men survived: They were Ned Stark and his homie Howland Reed, aka Meera's "dad." Oh. Shiz. If Lyanna did have twins, the safest plan would be to split them up. According to the twins theory, one went with Ned, and the other went with Howland. And it turns out there's actually evidence to support this. The Evidence: Looks HBO Meera Reed and Jon Snow.   First, just take a look at Jon Snow and Meera. The pair obviously use the same shampoo and conditioner. Meera's description in the book of brown hair and a slim build reminds you of Arya's, and Arya is also said to look like Jon. But like, is everyone seeing this? Put a beard on her, and they might as well be the same person. Case closed, right? The Evidence: Age Wait! Not so fast. In order to be twins, they have to be the same age. Isn't Meera way younger? Nope. According to a Wiki of Ice and Fire, and the appendix of Martin's second novel in the A Song of Ice and Fire series, A Clash of Kings , Meera and Jon are the exact same age. Whhhhhaaaatttt!!!!???? Meera is described in the book as being several years older than her brother Jojen. A Wiki of Ice and Fire lists Meera  and Jon's  birth year as 283 AC, the same year Lyanna died, and the appendix of the book lists them both as 15 years old. Interestingly eno
