Top 5 Game of Thrones Most Bizarre Predictions
Is Cersei finally going to die? What about Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryen? Which of them will eventually sit on the Iron Throne? Will the winter in Westeros ever end?
“Game of Thrones” is now on its final stage. All secrets will be revealed and we will find out who will survive and who will be defeated in the fight for the Iron Throne. Until then, fans still have a lot of speculations. The theories of fans of the series have been additionally stimulated by the premiere of a new book by George R.R. Martin.
Let’s check out the most interesting theories about the 8th season of “Game of Thrones.”
More Dragons in Westeros
For a long time, it seemed that the most formidable weapon in the war for the supremacy of the Seven Kingdoms would be three dragon children of Daenerys. However, the Night King managed to overcome and take control over Viserion, which makes the forces very much even. Targaryen’s “Fire and Blood” chronicle reminded fans of “Game of Thrones” times when the dragons hatched from the dragon’s eggs almost continuously.
Some fans speculate that some eggs could survive. The chronicler who wrote “Fire and Blood” quotes rumors that they may be in Vale, Skagos and even Winterfell. Those who are interested in this theory also recall the prophecy of Azor Ahai. He spoke about the prince who would awaken the dragons of stone. Could it be Jon Snow?
Varys is a Targaryen?
When we first see the Targaryens in the show, their family is on the brink of extinction. Only two legitimate successors of the line of kings remained — Viserys and Daenerys — but what about the illegals?
The knowledge of Jon Snow’s connections with Targaryen is already common, but many fans speculate that the dragon’s blood also flows in the veins of other heroes. Often mention here Varys. He not only secretly helped the descendants of the family many times but also has vague roots. ‘The Spider’ admits that he was born as a slave in Lys and hundreds of years earlier, the daughter of King Jaehaerys I., who could be her descendant, could have been a courtesan.
Gendry is a Dragon Slayer
Secret prophecies, obscure visions, and distorted predictions – this is not only the domain of fans but also an important element of history built by George R.R. Martin. Many thought it was about Robert Baratheon who killed Rhaegar and became king (or according to some, a usurper).
The fandom suggests, however, that the prophecy may have a more literal meaning. Gendry, who is the bastard of King Robert, is also the only person who can smuggle Valyrian steel. It has been repeatedly suggested that blacksmith skills will defeat the Night King. But what about a slightly different type of expertise? Is he the one who is supposed to draw a weapon that would kill Night King’s dragon?
Tyrion is not Tywin Lannister’s son
Tywin Lannister’s relationship with his son was never one of the best. Therefore, no one was surprised that in the last moments before Tyrion’s death, the man indirectly denied his fatherhood. This can be interpreted as the last opportunity to offend his offspring for the last time.
Some, however, treat this as proof of the theory that Tyrion is the fruit of the romance of the mad king and Joanna Lannister. And that would make him half-blood Targaryen, and to a large extent explain the feeling he had for Daenerys.
Not all the theories of fans of ‘Game of Thrones’ relate to great events and mysterious blood relationships. Some result from a deep need to see something unique on the screen. This is the case with the so-called Cleganebowl or a dream duel between Clegane brothers.
However, they theoretically do not have a reason to meet or fight each other at the moment. According to one theory, they would both be chosen as champions in a battle in order to attempt to prove to everyone that the accusations of Cersei’s incest are not true.
As you can see, fans of the “Game of Thrones” series are competing by coming up with more and more interesting theories about the ending one of the most iconic sagas that have ever been seen. Are the predictions going to turn up real? It is highly difficult to say. The creators of the show guard its secrets like an apple of their eyes. However, no one will be disappointed.
The great creators have provided us with incredible entertainment in all of the other seven parts, so we know what we can expect. The first two episodes of the eighth and final season have already been aired. All the fans’ theories will be verified in the upcoming episodes in which the warriors of Winterfell are going to fight the greatest battle of their lives against the white walkers.
