  1. 1Jon Snow is a Legitimate Targaryen

    18

    R+L=J is the now confirmed theory that Jon Snow is the son of Rhaegar Targaryen and Lyanna Stark. What the fifth episode of Game of Thrones seventh season, "Eastwatch", now points at is that he is not only the product of this union but is actually legitimate. This is revealed when Gilly stumbles upon the information that Rhaegar had his previous marriage to Elia Martell annulled and officially married someone else in a secret ceremony in Dorne. Of course, this leads to believe that is was Lyanna who he married before Jon was born, making him the rightful heir to the Seven Kingdoms.

  1. 2Bran is the Night King

    15

    This Game of Thrones fan theory states that Bran is the Night King. This would have happened when the Children of the Forest pierced a man's heart with dragonglass creating the first White Walker. If this is true, Bran would have been warging into this man, and when the dragonglass pierced his heart, he became stuck in that body, becoming the Night King himself. 

  2. 3Tyrion is a Targaryen

    13

    This Game of Thrones fan theory holds that Tyrion is the illegitimate son of Aerys “The Mad King” Targaryen who was infatuated with Joanna Lannister (Tywin's wife) and used to take unwanted liberties with her. The evidence that supports this theory is that Tywin hates Tyrion and tells him he is not his son. In the books, Tyrion also has light blond hair and different colored eyes, always dreams with dragons and, in the series, when he finally meets them, is able to touch them.

  1. 4Bran makes Aerys Targaryen go mad

    10

    This Game of Thrones fan theory states that Bran Stark is the one who causes Aerys Targaryen to become The Mad King. This happens when he realizes that others can hear him during his visions from the past, but doesn't understand that they cannot fully understand him. He attempts to reason with Aerys, but the King only hears whispers and is eventually driven mad by it.

  2. 5Jamie Lannister is Azor Ahai

    10

    Azor Ahai was a warrior who fought to end the Long Night. Also called the Prince That Was Promised, he possessed a flaming sword called Lightbringer that he forged by sacrificing his wife Nissa Nissa. This Game of Thrones fan theory argues that Jamie Lannister might be Azor Ahai reborn, with his near death experience in the lake being his rebirth amidst smoke and salt. He could also be the one who murders his sister, fulfilling that part of the prophecy. Aditionally, Reddit user, byrd82, states that Valyrian words for gold and hand are aeksion and ondos, while Valyrian words for lord and light are aeksio and onos. This could have led to a mistranslation and the erroneous creation of a religion, with the prophecy actually saying that the true savior is the “Gold Hand”.

  3. 6Cleganebowl

    7

    Cleganebowl is a Game of Thrones fan theory that states that brothers Sandor Clegane (The Houd) and Gregor Clegane (The Mountain), will eventually face off against each other in an epic fight.

  4. 7Jon Snow is Azor Ahai

    7

    A prophecy claims that during the next long Winter, Azor Ahai will return, a hero born "amidst salt and smoke" who will "draw from the fire a burning sword." This hero is the one who will beat back the dark army. This Game of Thrones fan theory states that Jon Snow is said prince.

  5. 8Daenerys Targaryen is Azor Ahai

    4

    This Game of Thrones fan theory states that Daenerys Targaryen is the embodiment of Azor Ahai reborn. A prophecy claims that when the next Long Night comes, Azor Ahai will return and will defeat the army of the dead. This hero will be born amidst smoke and salt and will carry a flaming sword.

  6. 9Euron Greyjoy can control dragons

    2

    This Game of Thrones fan theory is based on the knowledge that Valyrian dragonlords used horns to control their dragons. It's believed that Euron Greyjoy may have stolen a powerful horn called Dragonbinder from a group of warlocks and will use it to turn Dany's dragons against her.

  7. 10The Ice Dragon

    1

    This Game of Thrones fan theory states that The Night King might have a dragon up his sleeve. It may be hidden inside the wall and he will resurrect it, he may already have it hidden in the North, or it may be one of Dany’s dragons that is stolen from her and made into an ice dragon.

  8. 111000th Lord Commander of the Night's Watch

    1

    1000th Lord Commander of the Night's Watch is a post in the Tumblr page of ASOIAFUniversity, or A Song of Ice and Fire University. It discusses the possibility of Jamie Lannister being named as the 1000th Lord Commander of the Night's Watch. 

  9. 12Jaime Lannister to make a painfully dark choice about Cersei

    1

    "Game of Thrones finally set up Jaime Lannister to make a painfully dark choice about Cersei" is an article in Business Insider. It was written by Kim Renfro and was published on June 28, 2016. It discusses about a dark ending between Jamie and Cersei in the show. 

  10. 13Arya kills Cersei

    1

    This Theory About Arya Killing Cersei On 'Game Of Thrones' Would Fulfill The Valonqar Prophecy & Let Arya Cross A Name Off Her List is an article in Bustle written by Alaina White on July 24, 2017. 

  11. 14How Littlefinger FAKED his Death

    1

    How Littlefinger FAKED his Death is a video on Youtube posted by Neo. It was published on December 9, 2017. It is a fan theory about Petry Baelish faking his own death using a Faceless Man from Braavos.

DID YOU KNOW?

Hate spoilers, theories, and other similar buzzes from the crazily annoying part of the fanbase of your favorite television show or movie series? Can’t blame you! Some of these people, if we can even call them as such (LOL), just cannot help themselves and create or share out-of-this-world ideas or even spot-on spoilers, totally messing up the experience for those who just want to wait when the episode, the book, or the film comes up. But did you know that a study released in 2016 stated that spoilers and fan theories might not only increase enjoyment upon watching the real thing but also lessen parasocial distress breakup when the series finally ends? In 2016, Morgan Ellithorpe from Michigan University and Sarah Brookes from New York College at Geneseo released “I Didn’t SeeThat Coming: Spoilers, Fan Theories, and Their Influence on Enjoyment and Parasocial Breakup Distress During a Series Finale” - a study that tested mental model resonance as a mechanism to gauge how seeing (or not seeing) spoilers and theories affected the experience the watching of series enders.

Speaking of finales and theories, Game of Thrones fan theories have sprung up like ...uhm… wights ever since HBO released the trailer of the series finale. Some of them are believable, but some of them are too long of a shot to be considered, but with a show as crazy and as unexpected as GoT, one can never be sure. If you are looking for some to blame for fans getting loony with theories, blame George R.R. Martin himself for not being able to finish the series as quickly as he promised. Did you know that the multi-awarded author and creator of this universe has published and edited a lot of side works but has pushed his deadlines for the last two novels in his series? The seventh book, titled Winds of Winter, was supposed to be sold in 2016, and was rumored to be up for sale again in 2018, but Martin couldn’t finish the book in time. Meanwhile, he has released works like The Princess and the Queen, The Rogue Prince, and Targaryen history book, Fire & Blood

    "Bran has already messed with the mind of one major character by traveling in the past (Hodor), so it would actually be plausible that he is the cause of the Mad King going crazy. I personally think it's due to Targaryen inbreeding, but Bran hasn't been getting much screen time lately and things are ramping up. Bran is still getting the hang of things, and I could see him making the mistake of attempting to communicate more with Aerys in the past and causing him to lose his mind."

I think when our northern hero and his group goes to King's Landing to present proof of the white walkers The Hound will make a move upon realizing his brother is the big tank in that armor. He might even do it out of pity now that he is coming to realize there is more to reality than he has seen, even if he does try to fight his new found knowledge of other forces at work."

    "I'll be honest, I do not watch Game of Thrones but my friends do so I keep up with the fan theories mostly just to know what they are talking about and sometimes to mess with them using the more outlandish ones. This one is kind of boring really, I mean it's something that the fans have suspected is true for a long time now so I'd believe it but I'd like something a bit more imaginative."

    "I'm not sure how I feel about this theory, but Daenerys has already birthed dragons from stone. I don't see why Azor Ahai couldn't be reincarnated as a woman, and The Queen of Dragons has proven herself to be a fighter as well as a ruler. It might not play out that way, but I think it would be a great twist!"

    "I don't think Jon Snow is Azor Ahai, though it is possible. He seems to be the main hero acting as a catalyst to save the world by currently attempting to bring people together, and birthing dragons from stone could be seen as a metaphor for dragon's glass, I think his role is already well established."

Let's look at the facts, he is a lying snake with the means to con the world (only Tywin can see through this guy's schemes) so it is possible he can fool a couple of children blinded by rage and other emotions."

    "I don't think Euron Greyjoy would have time to get a hold of a dragon horn. I think it would be too convenient considering where he has been before taking control of his fleet, and how he is currently battling now. It's too late in the story to really contribute to the end of this game."

    "I do not believe in the solution. In the books it is already stated that Benerro of Volantis proclaims that Daenerys Targaryen is Azor Ahai returned. So we should look the answer for the Azor Ahai for somewhere else. It should be something that we haven't heard already."
