This New “Game Of Thrones” Filming Location Could Confirm A Huge Fan Theory

 If there’s one thing we know about Game of Thrones fans, it’s that they like to speculate.

And for the next nine months the thing they’ll most likely be speculating about is how Jon Snow can be brought back from the dead. But nine months is a long time, so allow us to give you something else to think about…

 Earlier this week HBO announced some new filming locations for Season 6. One of which was Castillo de Zafra in Guadalajara, Spain.

The 12th-century castle was built on top of a rocky outcrop on a hillside. And as you can see from this picture, there seems to be very little surrounding it

 To many people who have read the books, there is one Westerosi location that this looks like above all others: the Tower of Joy.

For those who haven’t read the books, the Tower of Joy was the place where Eddard Stark found his sister Lyanna in a bed of blood, at which point Ned made Lyanna a promise moments before she died.

The theory – commonly known as R+L=J – says that the blood was the result of childbirth, and that the child in question was fathered by Prince Rhaegar Targaryen. Knowing that any child of a Targaryen would be slaughtered by Robert Baratheon, Ned promised Lyanna that he would raise them as his own, telling everyone (including his wife) that the child was his bastard. If you hadn’t worked it out by now, that child was Jon Snow. Half Stark, half Targaryen, Jon Snow is literally the song of ice and fire, or so the theory goes. You can read more about this theory here.

Which could mean, if we’re very lucky, that R+L=J will be confirmed at some point during Season 6.

There are those who claim this castle could be Casterly Rock, although the fact that this location is miles from the coastline seems to dispute this. So what other evidence is there that we could see flashbacks to the Tower of Joy during Season 6?
