There was quite a bit in the book dealing with this; basically, a deal was done whereby Sansa was used (and I do mean used) to trick Ned into the false confession. That's why Sansa was smiling through the whole thing, right up until Joffrey called for Ser Ilyn. The deal was that he would be sent to the Wall in return. However, Joffrey, being the stupid, arrogant little shit that he is, went off-script and decided to have him executed instead.

Sean Bean has done high profile things like straight to dvd movies lately.
So...i dunno if that's why he took the role.

I have a comic book podcast, my name is Luro on it. Please listen for the good of mankind.
And to the people saying Jon doesn't look like a Targaryen, the only reason Targaryens pretty much all have white-blond hair and violet eyes is because of many generations of inbreeding...much the same reason why so many of them are flat-out crazy.
Hey, that tiger is flying a spaceship.
But if Jon is blood of the Dragon his hand wouldn't have been burned when he grabbed the lantern he threw at the "other". Dany's hands weren't burned when she grabbed the egg that was in the fireplace.
I just don´t see what would be the point of making Jon a Targaryan.
He´s already a Stark (somewhat), isn´t that enough?
Bastards turned royal bloods is such a tired cliché.
Can't get enough of this show. Loved it so much I bought the book, and am more than half way through it. And that is from a guy who doesn't read novels. Last one I read was probably in high school because I HAD to.
Game of Thrones is written so well, and I'm glad I have something to keep me entertained in between the episodes each week. I look forward to the final episode, to the series on Blu-Ray and season 2! :D
Being a Targaryen doesn't make one immune to heat and fire, or Viserys would still be alive.
Dany is special. They took pains during the show to demonstrate that Viserys could be burned (like in that scene with the prostitute and the candle) while Dany has resistance, both in the scalding hot tub scene and the moments with the hot eggs in the fire.
Jon may not be a Targaryen, but his burns don't automatically rule out the possibility that he's Rhaegar's son. I thought it was very telling that Ned told Jon before they parted that "you have my blood," not "you are my son."

The point of what Saturn Girl is trying to make is not that Danerys would have survived the "crowning", but rather that the "heat resistance" or tolerance doesn't necessarily manifest in all Targaryans.
Stay away from the chimps. You can't reason with them and you'll just end up with monkey shit all over your clothes.

Plenty of pure-blood Targaryens have died in fires or fire-related incidents, including Aemon's brother and his first son, which sadly put the Mad King on the throne.
