This theory has been around for a while on the web and social networks. According to some internet users, Bran (Isaac Hempstead-Wright), the brother of Arya, and Sansa, would in fact be the King of the Night. The first teaser of season 8 of Game of Thrones aired in January has reinforced this idea. If one believes this theory, Bran could take possession without recognizing the body of the leader of the Walkers White.

2. Tyrion and Daenerys are in the same family
And if Tyrion (Peter Dinklage) and Daenerys (Emilia Clarke) were actually… from the same family ! This theory is circulating since several years among fans of the series. A theory based mainly on the novels because in the books of George R. R. Martin, Tyrion has hair almost white, a color that is similar to Targaryen than Lannister. The father of Tyrion is actually Aerys II, the Mad King, who in the past had a weakness for the mother of Tyrion, Jaime and Cersei, Joanna. Other “evidence” ? The fact that Tyrion seems to be rather well accepted by the dragons, Dany. Even if this theory has been disproved by Peter Dinklage, the doubt remains !

3. Jaime is going to kill Cerseï… well, almost !
It seems more than possible that Cersei (Lena Headey) who dies in season 8. But how ? According to internet users, Jaime (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) could kill it… but not really ! In fact, some are leaning toward another option : it is Arya (Maisie Williams) that will kill Cersei… while “wearing” the face of Jaime. A “technology” already used by the young Stark when the murder of Walder Frey. This would confirm the prophecy that Cersei would be killed by his younger brother.

4. Gendry will be on the Throne at the end of the series
Great return from the season 7, Gendry (Joe Dempsie) will he sit on the Throne ? No, you’re not dreaming, it is a theory of fans. Some people think that the blacksmith would be in fact the son of Cersei and Robert Baratheon and therefore the rightful heir to the Iron Throne. We know in the series that Gendry is the bastard son of Robert Baratheon and some think that it is in fact the lost baby raised by Cersei at the beginning of the series. According to this theory, it is Jaime who, jealous of the baby’s birth, would have to believe his sister he would be dead.

5. The series is a story written by Samwell
The radius of the theories that we do NOT want to see happen, it is probably in first place. Some fans who want to torture us think that the whole story of the series is in fact a fiction. This would, in fact, Samwell Tarly (John Bradley-West) who have written or tells the whole story.

6. There will only be seven survivors
And if it was the blaze during the last few episodes to leave… only 7 survivors. Several people have had this idea, which refers to “The Faith of the Seven, the main religion of the Seven Kingdoms. According to this belief, God would have seven faces or aspects : The Father, The Mother, The Maiden, The Crone, The Warrior, The Smith and The Stranger. It therefore seems possible that only 7 characters, representatives of each aspect manage to escape. According to users of Reddit, it would be : Tyrion (The Father), Daenerys (The Mother), Sansa (The Maiden), Sam (The Crone), Brienne (The Warrior), Gendry (The Smith) and Arya (The Stranger).

7. Arya is already dead since a long time
And if Arya had been replaced without even noticing ? This is what some believe is the fans. Remember, in episode 8 of season 6, with Arya killing The Waif who had attacked. Some, however, are convinced that Arya is in fact dead after being stabbed and that The Waif took his face and place. An interesting theory but that would be very disappointing if it turned out to be real.

We had almost forgotten about it but the Mountain and the Bloodhound are brothers.

9. Littlefinger is not dead
Littlefinger (Aidan Gillen) is it really dead ? In the last episode of season 7, Arya him, then cut his own throat when he tried to climb the Stark, one against the other. One theory suggests, however, that he is not dead : in episode 5, we can see give a room to a woman whose face is hidden. Some people think that it would be a No-face that he would have paid to take his place. It fits !

Another theory, more WTF ? A episode 7 secret concocted by the production. On Reddit, a user presents his idea on the end of the series : this is the King of the Night and the walkers white will win the war… or almost. According to this person, episode 7 secret will be released a week later – without anyone being warned – showing the return of the men and their civilization. The latter is notably based on the fact that the number 7 is very important in the series. We believe in it ?
