Game of Thrones Season 7 is just a day away, and it wouldn't be wrong to say that it is one of the most anticipated seasons of the fantasy drama, considering the show ended last year by indirectly confirming that Jon Snow is the son of Lyanna Stark and Rhaegar Targaryen.

Season 7 is expected to be high on drama as a number of key characters are set to meet in the upcoming seven episodes. But before that, here is a look at some key plot twists you may have missed over the course of six seasons. These below mentioned plot points also prove that the show is full of ironies.
