Now that Winter is here, I’ve been reading a lot of fan theories online and on Facebook. I’d like to share some of the most popular and I’d love to hear from anyone what you think or what your own theories might be!! I’m just a big Game Of Thrones geek! I MUST read the books!!
Let’s start with Jon Snow….Is he going to make it to the end? Will he sit on the Iron Throne? Will he ride one of the dragons?
I know a lot of folks believe he’s a Targaryen, BUT what if he’s a Baratheon?! It is possible! Robert Baratheon was in love with and betrothed to Jon’s mother Lyanna Stark. The show has only confirmed who Jon’s mother is. It leads us to believe that Rhaegar Targaryen is Jon’s father. But what if he’s not?!
Jon has dark eyes and dark hair…the opposite traits of the Targaryens. Maybe Lyanna really was kidnapped by Rhaegar instead of eloping with him. I don’t think there are any DNA tests in Westeros so we’ll have to wait and see! By the way…I read The Baratheons also have Targaryen blood, so that could explain the connection between Jon and the dragons if he turns out to be a Baratheon.
It’s been theorized that the Night King will kill one of the dragons. Please…no dragon deaths! I don’t really have any Khaleesi theories other than she won’t be the ruler of the Seven Kingdoms. Just a feeling I have. If you haven’t seen any of this seasons episodes, I’ll just say one of the best scenes of the whole series (in my opinion) happens this season! Dracarys!! Don’t make me sic my dragon on you!
Oh Cersei! She truly is turning into the Mad Queen. Who will take her out? Jamie? Tyrion? Arya? Please someone just do it!
A popular theory making the rounds is that Gendry is the son of Robert Baratheon and Cersei. In one of the earlier seasons she talks about giving birth to a dark haired baby boy who dies. She could have had him taken away and replaced him with a stillborn baby before Robert found out. She hated Robert so it makes sense she wouldn’t want to have his child around as a reminder or an heir. Switching him with another baby though would take some effort and leave witnesses. It would be more like Cersei to just murder the baby at birth but then again, her only redeeming quality is that she loves her children…maybe even one she didn’t want. Regardless….Gendry is back!!
I think Littlefinger will die and Arya is the girl to do the job. I don’t think Jorah will make it to the series end either. Sansa is becoming the Cersei of the North. I don’t believe Tywin was Tyrion’s father. I feel Sam will play a major role in how the series ends, but I’m not sure how. Maybe he’s the one telling the story all along. Bran may well be the Night King…but who can tell with all the confusing time travel.
Hopefully all that going back and forth thru time will change the future and we’ll see Ned Stark and Hodor again! Let’s just hope it doesn’t result in Joffrey sitting on the Iron Throne when the series ends!
