'Game of Thrones' fan-theories that will figuratively blow your mind
Ardent fans of Game of Thrones know the significance of the legendary 'R+L=J' theory. It speculated Jon Snow's parentage and was a part of various online discussions for a decade. And, it eventually turned out to be true. As per GoT season 7, Jon Snow indeed is the son of Rhaegar Targaryen and Lyanna Stark. Here are some more fan theories worth your time.
Jaime Lannister: Does the Kingslayer eventually become a Queenslayer?
Jaime and Cersei have been together since the beginning. He's helped her in a lot of ethically questionable actions. But lately, he has been weighing her growing darkness. When Cersei was a child, a witch told her that she would be killed by the Valonqar (Valyrian for little brother). Jaime is younger than Cersei, so will the Kingslayer become a Queenslayer? You never know!
The Promised Prince: Azor Ahai and the speculation around him
As per Melisandre, the legendary Azor Ahai used Lightbringer (his sword) to end the White Walkers in the past. She is searching for his reincarnation. Stannis was definitely not it. Right now, the most likely reincarnation (The Prince That Was Promised) seems to be Jon Snow, mostly because of his lineage. But then again, Jaime or even Ser Davos could be Azor Ahai reborn.
Jon will sacrifice Dany to defeat the White Walkers
See, this is Game of Thrones. Anyone. Can. Die. This theory draws parallels with the past when, in order to defeat the Walkers, Azor Ahai sacrificed his one true love, his wife Nissa Nissa. With her blood, he forged a sword (Lightbringer) so strong that it ended the White Walkers. If Jon is his reincarnation and Daenerys is his true love...yeah, that.
You might have heard this: Bran is the Night King!
Bran has, time and again, projected his consciousness back in time and interacted with the past. Fans have theorized that he'll one day reach the time when Children of the Forest created the White Walkers and get trapped in Night King's body. If you remember, in one episode, the Night King actually touched Bran while he was watching the White Walker army using Greensight.
Biggest: Arya Stark has been dead for a long time
In her final confrontation with The Waif in season 6, Arya killed her off-screen, leaving the Faceless Men. According to one theory, The Waif actually killed Arya and has been wearing her face since then. This is supported by the change in Arya's personality and dominant hand. If this one turns to be true, it'll definitely be the biggest plot twist in the show.
