Warning: Spoilers for Game of Thrones Season 6 below.
In case you needed reminding that the robot apocalypse may be closer than you think, iPhone users should ask their phone who Jon Snow's parents are. It turns out that Apple's Siri is a serious Game Of Thrones fan. That's right, the hilariously witty iPhone assistant is all caught up on the recent events from the Season 6 finale and is out to prove she's no fool.
While Jon Snow's birth mother was confirmed to be Lyanna Stark during the finale, his birth father was merely hinted at, though most fans have put two and two together to figure it out, with HBO later confirming what we all suspected. Siri clearly was able to do the same. In fact, she seems a little sassy that I even had the audacity to ask her. Try it for yourself: Ask Siri who Jon Snow's father is, and this is what you get:
Yes, that is an actual screenshot from my very own phone after I dared to ask the question. And it gets even better. I continued to test Siri's knowledge of Game of Thrones to prove she's a real fan and I have to say: She is the real deal.
I started with the basics:
Same, Siri. Same. I had to dig a little deeper, just to make sure she wasn't faking it:
Apparently, a girl knows nothing but everything at once. But how did Siri take the news of Jon Snow's resurrection? By turning to some good old George R.R. Martin inspiration:
Don't worry Siri, I understand what you are trying to say. I gave up too. But did Siri actually watch the finale? I had to know:
She watched, and sadly, Mr. Frey was never able to taste just how good of a cook Arya is. So now that we know Siri is all caught up, how's she feeling about the weather in Westeros?
But I don't live in West Hollywood anymore, so that really doesn't help me at all. I thought I'd help her out with that one:
Low blow, Siri. Just pour salt on the wound, why don't you? You could have said literally anything else, sassy-pants. I thought I'd give Siri just one more chance to really show me she was a Game Of Thrones superfan:
Well there you have it. If you still doubt Siri's superfan status, she's even stated her allegiance to her own house in Game of Thrones, in true Daenerys fashion:
Wow. Even I haven't gone that far. What would I be? Amie, Creatorborn of House Movie Pilot, Writer of Random Entertainment and Pointless Knowledge, Keeper of Memes, Abuser of Exclamation Points. Yeah, that sounds about right.
Have some fun! Ask Siri about Game of Thrones, see what she has to say, and comment below. Hey, at least if you have no one to talk to about your Game of Thrones obsession during the year hiatus, you know you can always turn to your phone. Suddenly, Skynet doesn't seem so bad, am I right?
