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.
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.

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.

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”.

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.
