I’ve been suffering from GoT withdrawals so bad that I started watching it from the beginning, in anticipation for Season 6 which kicks off on the 24th.
The good thing about rewatching it is that I can see a lot more early clues to the characters due to what I know of the story’s eventual arc. Because of that, as well as hours spent on GoT Wiki sites, I’ve formulated my theories on how the story will conclude.
1. Winter will come.
This one is obvious. What’s the point of telling us winter will come over and over if it never does.
2. Jon Snow is Azor Ahai
He died to shed the Crow’s vow and when he comes back he will know his true ancestry as a Targaryen and leader of the people.
3. There will be another war between men and white walkers.
Men will win, with the help of Jon Snow’s Lightbearer sword, Daenerys’ dragons, the Stark direwolves and the Forest children who Bran found.
4. Arya Stark will die.
She will not go lightly into that good night but go she will. Because I see how GRRM sets the xter up now.
5. Peace will be restored
The throne will be Jon Snow’s. Daenerys will be his Queen and bring the Dothraki and the rest of her kingdoms with her into an alliance with Westeros. Tyrion Lannister will become the Hand of the King and secure his family’s support. Cersei may commit suicide possibly after her last son Tommen is killed.
Of course I’m not GRRM so feel free to take all of this with a pinch of salt. I just need the 24th to get here already!
