Black Hole Jet connected to...

I have a question for the Astronomer.

The image is a section of the very first test image James Webb Space Telescope captured with the near-infrared camera (NIRcam). (See image by clicking Link below).
You can see the hot gas swirling around the accretion disk on a black hole, in the near-infrared light spectrum. It's located in the star constellation, named Draco.

Link to the image:

What do you believe the object to the left is?

The object on the right is most likely a rogue supermassive black hole. It is typically a supermassive black hole that produce these powerful jets, that stretch out many light years.
