I thought that (mostly confirmed) theory applied to Jon.

The theory is that Tyrion's mother was raped by the Mad King. There's some fairly compelling evidence for it.
Also, I totally think Jon and Dany will end up opposing each other.
Edit: I'll let my GOT spirit guide explain the Tyrion theory for you

innnnnnteresting theory, but yea as that guy says the reasons against it are more compelling than the reasons for it.
To me, Dany does not seem like the type to marry for her own political purposes (her marriage to Kal Drogo was forced by her brother). She's come so far without needing the help of any husband, and she has allies in waiting with Jon Snow and the northerners... plus the dragons. I could mayyybe see Jorah making a comeback and being of some brief romantic interest, but I think for her any marriage would feel like a step down.
I could see the next season going something like this... Bran/Jon Snow cross paths early on, Bran informs Jon of his Targaryan blood, Jon decides to seek out Dany, perhaps helps her with her invasion of King's Landing. Dany takes the iron throne but in the process Jon and Sansa convince her of the threat of the white walkers and they unite to prepare for that battle. Maybe Cersei and Jaime escape during the invasion and, not understanding that Winter is Coming, start plotting some way of sabotaging this big Jon/Dany alliance - perhaps by playing the Lannister card with Tyrion (Cersei sends Jaime to coerce Tyrion into betraying Dany, but maybe Tyrion turns it around and convinces Jaime to betray Cersei which he arguably wants to do anyway?)

Solid season opener for sure. I liked how the recap and opening sequence set all the parallels for tying everything up. Also, hey, a song that isn't the Rains of Castemere or The Bear and the Maiden Fair!

Overall though, pretty great episode, but I'm worried about the "TV-ification" of the show in general, and this definitely felt like a step in that direction. What's always made me love Game of Thrones is how utterly consistent it is - it doesn't feel like a story, it feels like a living world where everything is a consequence of who these well-defined characters are, not just whatever story GRRM wanted to tell. But lately, whether in the interest of wrapping everything up, or just the directors running free of the books, it's started to feel more and more story manipulative. Just setting up big, obvious wins for the inevitable crash (see: the cold open), or now that we're at the end, maybe even just a sudden turn to "oh hey our favorites win now!", but we'll have to get further in the season to see if any of my fears are true.
Some random thoughts:
Wizwars, about the bush hogging. Just wet and part my man. Give that bush the Moses treatment and head for the Promised Land.

Well there has been a lot of buildup, so we'll be seeing a lot of major story development this season. I doubt they'd do something like have Dany's ships all sink in a storm or something similarly anticlimactic. I have my doubts that all the favorites are just going to win though. GoT has to have some nasty surprises.
Hell my favorite character isn't even in the TV series anyway (Young Griff).
All men dream, but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds, wake in the day to find that it was vanity: but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act on their dreams with open eyes, to make them possible.
