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

The Night King is one of the first Stark men.

Fans believe The Night King’s identity will send shockwaves, becoming a major reveal in the story. We know he was a human captured and then created as a White Walker by the Children of the Forest, but we don’t know who he was at that point in time. One theory suggests the man was one of the first Starks with tremendous green-seeing and warging abilities, allowing him to bring people back from the dead.

Littlefinger will win in the end (disproved after tonight's episode).

The theory states that Littlefinger is likely to win the game of thrones. He’s played one of the best games so far, moving the chess pieces well to his advantage. Rather than being played, he plays other people with a crafty wit. Littlefinger would have been likely to sit back and watch everyone kill each other before taking the throne for himself. But as we now know, this did not happen.

The Night King will win in the end.

The Night King will rule over Westeros, that’s at least the theory. Since George R.R. Martin isn’t a fan of magical, happy stories and loves to torment readers, he might end the story with The Night King winning, bringing about an endless winter. Perhaps some heroes will escape to Braavos, but in this theory, they all likely die.

Jon Snow wins.

No matter how you swing it, The Night King winning would be a huge downer, even for George R.R. Martin. Instead, the winds of fortune seem to be pointing in Jon Snow’s direction and for several reasons. First, as Rhaegar Targaryen’s legitimate son, he has more claim to the throne than anyone. He’s the most beloved character of the show. He’s already been named King in the North. He’s honorable, strong, and a good leader. If the last scene was him sitting on the Iron Throne and the credits rolled, everyone would be super pleased with that ending.

Bran is the Lord of Light.

Like we said, Bran as the Three-Eyed Raven has a tremendous amount of power, with the ablity to go back into the past and alter the future. One theory suggests all the “visions” and “prophecies” are Bran telling people about what is to come and people created a religion out of it and called Bran, “The Lord of Light.”
