It will be interesting to see how Daenerys deals with John's heritage. She has shown herself to be quite ruthless in her quest for power.

Does Lineage even matter when you have two armies at your back? The Unsullied and the Dothraki don't follow her because of her House.

But then if none of the kingdoms support your claim, who cares? Clearly the North hates her and the Vale is aligned with the North. The Reach won't support her after what was done to the Tarleys.

Ruling the 7 Kingdoms by the whole "Bend the Knee or Die" approach isn't a whole lot better than anything they've seen before.

I think this Battle for Winterfell will upend the whole narrative where lineage and claims to the throne don't much matter anymore.
