Let’s look at six really obscure but imaginable GOT theories.
1) Who are Jon Snow’s parents?
Now if you’ve watched the show you will know that Jon is claimed to be Ned Stark’s bastard throughout. He’s been a half-brother to Robb, Bran, Arya, Sansa and Rickon. But as you move on with the show, you’ll realise that this couldn’t be the case. A very popular fan theory believes that Jon is Ned’s nephew— being his sister Lyanna Stark’s son. Lyanna was abducted and allegedly raped by Rhaegar Targaryen— but the theory believes that Lyanna fell in love with Rhaegar and they eloped, and she gave birth to Jon in the tower of joy. However, another part of the theory suggests that Meera Reed is Jon’s twin sister, and Lyanna handed over Jon to her brother Ned so he could protect him from Robert Baratheon who if discovered the truth, would put an end to Jon.
Which….makes complete sense.
2) The Northern Conspiracy
A theory states that Jon was legitimised by his brother Robb Stark and that is why, he is the heir to winterfell. Also the ninth episode of the new season is called ‘Battle of The Bastards’ so we’re assuming it’s the Ramsay — Jon battle.
And because of his Stark—Targaryen bloodlines and if he truly is Rhaegar’s son, he has the right to the Iron Throne by blood.
3) Cersei will be murdered by her own son
You see a lot of Cersei’s character development in the fourth book, and then again, Maggy the Frog did reference Cersei’s future children “Gold shall be their crowns and gold their shrouds,” stating that she’ll see her children die. And maybe with the throne driving Tommen insane and the pressure mounting on him with his wife and everyone else, he might strangle her to death.
4) Jon Snow is Azor Ahai
Tying into the possibility that Jon is of Targaryen ancestry, Melisandre’s prophecy states that Azor Ahai will have the blood of the dragon and will be reborn in smoke and salt (in the books Jon’s wounds smoke and his friends cry tears all over him, get it? Salt. Tears.).
Secondly, when Melisandre is looking into the fires for Azor she only ever sees things to do with snow, which cannot be a coincidence. Finally, Jon chose his Night’s Watch post over his lady love (Ygritte), which ties in to the original Azor Ahai and Nissa Nissa prophecy. Above all this we now know that he has been resurrected by the Lord of Light through Melisandre, so he’s already connected. Boom! Jon is the warrior of light.
5) Sandor Clegane is back
So if you’re a Game of Thrones fan you’ll know that all men must die but not all men actually die. Fans have a habit of believing that anyone who wasn’t killed on-screen may actually be alive, we still think Stannis is alive. There is some evidence in the books to suggest Brienne saw a huge, hooded man with injuries the same as the Hound’s digging graves after his death. Plus, the actor who plays him has been spotted extremely close to where the new series is being filmed. Could he return to take on his abusive brother The Mountain ? We think yes.
6) Tyrion is a Targaryen
The idea is that mad King Aerys Targaryen had an affair with Tywin Lannister’s wife, Joanna, the mother of Tyrion, which might explain why Tywin hated him so much inspite of the whole ‘You’re a Lannister, you’re my son.’. And despite what happens in the books, the TV show even seems to be pointing in that direction, with Tywin saying you’re no son of mine just before Tyrion shoots him with an arrow. You’ve got to admit, an ancient prophecy being brought to life by the show’s three most popular characters does seem like a perfect way to round off the whole Game of Thrones saga. And when Tyrion unchained Dany’s dragons, there was something that made him build up the courage to do so. Let’s hope for this one.
There are hundreds of theories but we think these six could really be it!
