Game of Thrones is hands down the best show on television. With its stellar ratings, gripping drama, and compelling characters, it’s the kind of show every network wants but comes sparingly. It’s been quite a ride so far with many shocking moments, but alas, every good show must come to an end. We’re only one season away from the series finale with hundreds of questions left hanging. Who will die? How will it end? Well, plenty of fans have studied and researched the epic tomes of George R.R. Martin in hopes of finding clues to those questions. Ready to hear what they have to say? Here are 25 Best Game Of Thrones Theories That Could Actually Be True. BTW. SPOILER ALERT

Jon Snow's sword, Longclaw, is alive.

It’s a little far fetched but hear us out. In “Beyond the Wall,” there’s a short clip of Jon Snow’s sword. On the hilt, is the dire wolf and as Jon Snow is deep in the water, there’s a shot of the hilt right before Jon grabs the sword. For a brief second, fans thought they saw the eye blink, leading to the theory that, you guessed it, Longclaw could be alive!

Varys could be a merman.

Have you ever wondered how Varys travels so quickly from place to place? Many believe he could be a merman. Hear us out on this. In the books, Martin does mention “merlings,” which are sea creatures similar to a merman. Varys is also a eunuch and no one really knows where he came from. Tyrion also made this threat in season two, “Threaten me again, and I’ll have you thrown into the sea.” Varys’s response is rather telling, “You might be disappointed in the results. The storms come and go, the big fish eat the little fish, and I keep on paddling.”

Meera and Jon are twins.

While it might seem silly at first, the theory that Meera and Jon are twins holds up a little. Putting aside their striking resemblance and the long curly hair, the scene where Ned Stark goes to see his sister Lyanna is prime evidence. Why? Because Howland Reed was there as well. While we didn’t see a second baby, it’s not implausible that another was born (i.e. Meera) and Ned asked Howland to take her home with him while he takes Jon.

Jaime will kill Cersei.

Cersei is out of control, but her days are assuredly numbered. As we know a prophecy was foretold about her life and all of it has come true up to this point. The only last thing left is her death which is said to be by a “valonqar” which means “Little Brother” in High Valyrian. Some have said this means Tyrion will kill her, but others point out Jaime is also technically a little brother. Jaime is the closest to Cersei and the most pained by all the horrible things she continues to do. Jaime is likely to be pushed to the edge and kill her.

Varys has been pulling all the strings this whole time.

Everything that’s happened all the way up to this point is all because of Varys. He conspired to have Dany married off to Khal Drogo and used Jorah as a spy. The reason he testified against Tyrion was to have him removed from King’s Landing and send him to Dany. Besides, he spreads information and misinformation at every turn to fit his needs and shapes the game on the outside. While he doesn’t seem to want to have power, he does like to manipulate others for some end that has yet to be discovered.
