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
Arya will kill Littlefinger (Proven after tonight's episode)
Littlefinger’s craftiness has come to an end. The theory was that Arya will figure Littlefinger’s schemes out, pretend to be Catelyn, and then kill him. It didn’t quite happen that way, but the way Arya and Sansa finally put an end to him was truly epic. Did you see the look on Littlefingers face? There has to be a meme in there somewhere.
The Lord of Light is a God of War
In Westeros and beyond, there are several religions that reside in various kingdoms and houses. In King’s Landing, they worship The Seven; in the North, they worship the old gods; and at the Iron Islands, they worship the Drowned God. However, Melisandre, the Red Priestesses, and the Brotherhood worship The Lord of Light. Of all these gods, The Lord of Light seems to be the only one that’s real, pushing an agenda of his own through visions and magic. Originally, it was thought The Lord of Light wanted the White Walkers destroyed, but that theory was killed by the episode “Beyond the Wall” when Thoros was killed. With the drums of war continuing on, some theorize The Lord of Light may actually want it and is an “Ares” type of god who fuels war by sending people into conflicts.
Cersei will be betrayed by the Iron bank.
Playing the game of thrones, Cersei has always loved to make deals with other parties with more power than her. She made deals with Highgarden, the High Septon, and the High Sparrow to use their power, and now as Queen is using the Iron Bank. In each case, she was betrayed in one way or the other except for the Iron Bank. It’s likely she won’t be able to keep her promises with them, and they will turn on her, ending her rule.
Bran is the Night King
The Bran is the Night King theory has been growing this season. Essentially, the argument is that with Bran going back in time to stop the White Walkers and failing each time has lead him to get stuck inside the Night King. The Three-Eyed Raven even warned Bran that if you stay inside a person for too long, you’ll get stuck there. The theory goes that Bran took one too many trips and when he tried to warg into the Night King’s form, he got stuck.
Bran will warg into a dragon.
Now that Bran is the Three-Eyed Raven, he has unbelievable powers to warg into other beings. (Warg meaning to enter the minds of other beings and even control their actions.) Fans have theorized he’ll eventually warg into one of Dany’s dragons. This could prove rather useful if Euron does take control of her dragons as Bran could steal them away from Euron.
