By the way, here's why I think the identity of Jon's mother isn't important:
- Seriously, this is a really big spoiler. Read at your own discretion.
- He dies at the end of book 5, shortly after he lets the wildlings through the wall. That means his story pretty much ends there. Also, I seem to remember some minor character in book 4, mentioning (somewhat implicitly) that he and Jon Snow share the same mother, meaning she probably isn't terribly important. If you've read this without finishing book 5, you're an idiot, I did try to warn you.
By the way, its spelt Jaime not Jamie.
The last we saw of Jon was that he was stabbed, whether he is dead or not is never confirmed in the book. There are also many hints suggesting he's not dead or will arise after death. Things like "Kill the boy and be born a man", the prophesy of Assor Assai (sp?) rising from fire, and the visions in the Mel chapter.
Also, that character says they shared the same milk mother, not the same mother. There are actually 3 different stories going around Westeros on who Jon's mother is, a fisherman's daughter, Wylla (that's the milk mother), and Ashara Dayne. The only one not explicitly a theory in the book is that he's the son of Rhaegar Targaryan and Lyanna Stark, though there are many, many subtle hints at it. It would be incredibly stupid to have discussed this since the first few pages of book one and never find out, especially w/ all the hints and conflicting stories w/in the text.
Don't worry about spoiler tags, the title says explicitly that there are spoilers.
