GoT Theory: What Is Waiting For Jon Snow In The Crypts Of Winterfell

Maybe not the first one to admit that is hooked on Game of Thrones, but so far the first one with this killing theory on what awaits for Jon Snow in the crypts of Winterfell. OK, let's start from the beginning: Years ago I watched the first three episodes of GoT and got completely absorbed by the story-line. Quickly bought the books and read them all and as everyone else in the universe got completely pissed off when the TV series surpassed the books. And not like the last two books were so good: I loved the first three but the fourth and the fifth were kind of disappointment - so many new POVs, slow pace, kind of day-time TV. Surprisingly the TV series were much better than the last two books in this domain, so that kept my curiosity alive and sharp. While reading the first book I suddenly realized that Jon Snow wasn't the illegitimate son of Ned Stark, and was almost sure that he was the child of Rhaegar and Lyianna. Glad it turned out to be the truth. I also think there was no abduction and that Rhaegar and Lyianna got married at some point. But that is not the point of writing this post. Although it is leading to it. Why do I think Jon's parents got married? How did I come to my theory on what is hidden in Winterfell and waiting for Jon?
Like almost every GoT fan I know, I got so frustrated with having no new book to read and even the next season of the show being postponed till mid of next year. And I went through everything there is on the net trying to imagine what would be next. And then I thought - there is too much hidden in the past, and George R.R. Martin had published all those GoT prequels, there must be something important unveiled in those books, otherwise why spending the time writing them and risking angering even more his fans with further delaying the real story? So I bought the following books from Amazon:
1. The World of Ice and Fire: The Untold History of Westeros and the Game of Thrones (Song of Ice & Fire)
2. A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms (Song of Ice & Fire Prequel)
3. The Hedge Knight: The Graphic Novel (A Game of Thrones)
4. The Sworn Sword: The Graphic Novel (A Game of Thrones)

So far I've read only the first one, but it was an eye-opener. And only because I was paying attention and was reading everything. After the end of the history part, there is section devoted to all the Seven kingdoms. And, sure enough, there was this gem hidden in an innocent comment line, devoted on Winterfell:

The moment I read this, I was like "yeah, exactly what I'm going to do - dismiss the very thought that there is a dragon (egg) awaiting for Jon Snow to come down in the crypts and find it"! 

OK, so why a dragon (egg) for Jon is a probable theory? For the following reasons:
1. As it becomes crystal clear from "The World of Ice and Fire: The Untold History of Westeros and the Game of Thrones", all Targaryen children were given an egg in their cribs, so that a dragon could hatch out for them;
2. Jon is a Targaryen and he was brought up in Winterfell, in a room above the crypts and the hot springs, and spend a lot of time playing in the crypts: thus one of the eggs might've had already hatched for him;
3. What is needed for an egg to hatch is heat and the nearness of a Targaryen: in our case we have the hot springs, the fire Ramsey Bolton put Wnterfell to, and Jon;
4. Jon (at least in the books) feels a constant pull to visit the crypts, and one reason for that might be his dragon (egg) trying to reach out for him and call him back;
5. Jon is a skinchanger (again, at least in the books), so he could be connected both to Ghost and his dragon, thus beholding the powers of the Ice (the direwolf) and the Fire (the dragon);

So that was all I wanted to share now (maybe there will be more after I finish reading all of the four books). What do you think, am I on the right track? Is it possible that there will be another dragon in GoT, this time for Jon? Please do not hesitate to tell me what you think in the comments below :)
