Game of Thrones: Siri gets sassy about Jon Snow's parentage

This post contains Game of Thrones spoilers.

Sunday’s Game of Thrones finale was watched live by a record 8.9 million people — and Siri seems to have been one of them.

Siri, the computer program which serves as Apple users’ personal assistant, has joined in the watercooler talk following the HBO fantasy series’ epic season 6 finale, weighing in on one of the most anticipated and speculated upon moments in the series: the revelation of Jon Snow’s parentage.

Nearly 20 years after the release of the George R. R. Martin’s A Game of Thrones, the first book in his A Song of Ice and Fire series on which the HBO show is based, the drama confirmed the theory that Jon Snow’s mother is Lyanna Stark, and implied that his father is Daenerys’ deceased older brother, Prince Rhaegar Targaryen.

When asked who Snow’s father is, Siri offers some witty responses. “Let’s just say, there’s some fire in this Snow,” Siri says in one answer. In another: “To know the history, you’ll need to do the math: R+L=J.”

To find out more of Siri’s musings on Westeros, including who she’s dubbed “the Rat Cook,” ask her about Jon Snow’s parents, and whether she watched the Thrones finale.

Game of Thrones returns to HBO in 2017.
