Sansa Stark Is Pregnant
UPDATED: We are gonna say this one is a no go. Given the seemingly months since Ramsay and Sansa have been together and there has been absolutely zero mention of this. We think its safe to say, thankfully, Sansa is not pregnant. Although it's not entirely debunked yet. Sansa has given many a cue that this is true, as well as Ramsay Bolton himself noting that he "is a part of [Sansa] now," suggesting that in all his abuse and assaults, he still knew that he needed an heir, and made that happen with Sansa.
Melisandre Will Return…
With an army from Volantis to battle the White Walkers. The Temple of the Lord of Light is in Volantis and is said to be three times the size of the Great Sept of Baelor (was). Many of those who serve R’hllor either become priests or priestesses or they become warriors for the Lord of Light. The religious sect has already backed the Mother of Dragons in Meereen, so why not in Westeros as well in order to stem the Long Night.
The Prince That Was Promised Is Multiple People
Again, three dragons. And "prince" has been again noted that the language in the prophecy wasn't specifying a specific gender. It could be Dany, it could be Jon. It could be all three dragon riders.
Jaime is the Valonqar
Remember that flashback scene with a young Cersei and Maggy the Frog? Well she makes a few predictions that night: Cersei will marry the king, check! Cersei will have three children and they will all die young, check! The king will have many children, also check! Another queen will come along to replace her, one that is younger and more beautiful, that one is coming (we think). And finally, Cersei will die with the hands of the Valonqar around her neck. “Valonqar” is high Valyrian for “little brother” (or just younger sibling depending on who on the internets you talk to). Many have speculated that this little brother to be Jaime and that he will ultimately kill Cersei. This theory has been even further supported by a scene where Cersei and Jaime are standing on large map of Westeros with Cersei standing on a region known as ‘the Neck’ and Jaime standing near the region known as ‘the Fingers’. It’s also worth noting that Jaime killed the Mad King in order to save King’s Landing, might he also have to kill the ‘Mad Queen’ in order to save the capital again??
Jaime is Azoh Ahai….
The story of Azor Ahai is summarized best like this: When threatened by the White Walkers, he forged a sword for 30 days and plunged it into water only to have it shatter. He then forged a new sword but this time for 50 days and plunged it into the heart of a lion but still the sword shattered. Finally, he forged a sword for 100 days and thrust the sword into the heart of his lover, Nissa Nissa, and in killing her fused her soul to the blade to create Lightbringer to defeat the White Walkers. So if Jaime is Azor Ahai come again he will need a new Lightbringer. So here we have two paths to follow: if Cersei is in fact a Lannister, Jaime will have to kill her. This will fulfill not only the prophesy of Maggy the Frog for Cersei’s death, but also mirror Azor Ahai. Jaime will have plunged his sword into the heart of a lion (the Lannister sigil is a lion) as well as his only, true lover. Now if we subscribe to another theory that Jaime and Cersei are actually Targaryns and Tyrion is the last true Lannister then this would happen for Jaime to be reborn as Azor Ahai. Jaime will have to kill Tyrion AND Cersei! Tyrion being the lion and Cersei his lover would both need to die in order for Lightbringer to be created anew. WHEW!
Tyrion Lannister Is Actually Tyrion Targaryen
There are three dragons. There have to be three Targaryens, right? We've got Dany, we've got Jon, and there's a strong theory that Tyrion is actually a Targaryen by Aerys Targaryen with Joanna Lannister, with Tywin completely unaware. That would make him Dany's half-brother.
Jaime and Cersei are Targaryns and Tyrion is the last Lannister
What do we know about Targaryns? They are all blonde, they’re into incest and have a decent change at being absolutely mad. Now who else in Game of Thrones matches that description? If you answered Jaime and Cersei, you’re not wrong. This theory states that Jaime and Cersei are in fact the children of the Mad King and Joanna Lannister. There is a rumor that King Aerys frequently slept with or raped Joanna Lannister. Some believe this is evidence in the Tyrion actually a Targaryn theory which we talk about later. But if the Mad King was making visits to Joanna’s bed, he could very well be the twins’ father. Cersei does certainly remind us of the Mad King with all of the burning people with wildfire. This would also make Tywin’s hatred of Tyrion make more sense. Tywin’s only true born son not only caused his wife to die during childbirth but also is a dwarf and Tyrion put it “dwarfs are bastards in their father’s eyes.”
Sansa will betray Jon
We finally got to see Bran and Sansa reunite after years apart! Sansa was overwhelmed with emotion while Bran looked like he was partially annoyed even being there. Why would Bran be so cold to his sister? Well maybe it’s because Bran knows what the future holds for Sansa and he isn’t too keen on it. With Bran being the new Three-Eyed Raven he is essentially a living computer full of all past, present and futures events. Bran is cold towards Sansa because he knows she is going to eventually betray Jon! Littlefinger has been chipping away at Sansa’s character for seasons now and he might finally have succeeded in tempting her to the dark side that will eventually lead to the fall of the King in the North. Damn you Littlefinger and damn you, Sansa if this one it true!!
Bran was the Three-Eyed Raven the whole time
So with all this time-travel talk, some theorize that Bran was and always is the Three-Eyed Raven. Think about it, we never see the Three-Eyed Raven walk unless he is in a vision where young Bran is also walking. The Three-Eyed Raven has intimate knowledge of Bran and also seems to know his death is coming in season 6 at the hands of the Night King and doesn’t seem too upset its about to happen. Maybe he knows its destined to happen and must for young Bran to become the official Three-Eyed Raven and become old Bran to start the cycle over again to teach young Bran to be the Three-Eyed Raven…. WHAT? Time is a flat circle, right? Ugh, headache!!!
Bran is also the Night King
This one is predicated on a whole lot of belief suspension and time-traveling shenanigans. So this theory says that at some point in adult Brans life he uses his Three-Eyed Raven abilities to go back in time to warn the Children of the Forest of the dangers to come and try to stop them from creating the Night King. Only when he travels back to warn them, he sounds absolutely crazy because time-travel sounds ludicrous! The Children then capture a paralyzed and grown Bran and decide to sacrifice him to the Old Gods and shove a piece of dragon glass into his heart and inadvertently turn him into the Night King. This would explain why the Night King is so dang powerful, able to sense and touch Bran from the past who was green seeing into the further past which we saw back in season 6. Also when you watch the scene where Bran is marked by the Night King, there are some stark similarities between the man being sacrificed and Bran, including the position in which they are on the ground, Bran’s reaction to the man being stabbed, Bran flinches. So Bran tried to stop the Night King but then becomes to Night King… does you head hurt yet?
The Wall will Fall!
So the Night King has to be able to get around the Wall somehow to invade the south and bring on the Long Night and kill everyone, right? Some think he might circumvent the Wall by sea, but this theory states the Wall will fall. When the Night King touched Bran, he marked him. When that happened the wards on the cave that were protecting Bran, Meera, the Children and the Three-Eyed Raven were rendered useless. What if the same holds true for the magic that keeps the White Walkers from passing through the Wall. Bran has passed through the Wall and since he is marked by the Night King, the wards and magic of the Wall can now be broken by the Night King. Dammit, Bran!
Euron will steal a dragon…
So theory is drawing a lot from the books, so bear with us show-watchers-only. In the books, Euron is possession of a magical, Valyrian horn named the Dragonbinder. If someone blows the horn, it glows and glyphs burn and then that person dies because their insides are ash. The horn is said to bind any dragon who hears the call to the one who sounds the horn, but no mortal can blow the horn and survive. What a predicament! Euron claims he knows some dark magic trickery to allow him to use the horn and then live to bind a dragon to his will. This theory says that Euron is telling the truth and will steal at least one dragon. This theory leads us right into the next…
Bran will fly…
When he wargs into one of Dany’s dragons. And if Euron manages to steal a dragon, we say he will warg into the stolen dragon in order to free it from Euron’s madness. Plus, Bran is told he will never walk again but he will fly, we hope that isn’t figurative due to him being the Three-Eyed Raven but rather because he will be controlling a freakin’ DRAGON! And on the topic of dragons…
There is an ICE DRAGON!!!
In the books there are many references to ice dragons. There is also a moment that some have interpreted to mean that a dragon was under Winterfell the whole time and when it is burned, Summer (Bran’s dire wolf) sees it fly off into the sky. But we aren’t; necessarily talking about that. This theory states that there is an ice dragon trapped in the Wall and when the Night King brings the Wall down he will also gain an ice dragon for his army of White Walkers and undead minions.
R + L = J
UPDATED: So in the finale of season 6 we learned that Jon is in fact not Eddard Stark's bastard son but rather his nephew and son of Lyanna Stark and Rhaegar Targaryn. So this longtime theory has been proven true!!
Cersei Is Going To Burn King's Landing To The Ground
UPDATED: So Cersei didn't completely blow up all of King's Landing, only the Sept of Baelor and its surrounding areas. Now thats not to say in the near future she doesn't go all Mad King and try for the whole city. But we will just have to wait and see, at this junction she is winning the war. Or try to, at least. Cersei has had Qyburn looking into rumors that have proven to be true beyond what they were even thinking, and everyone seems to be talking a lot about the wyldfyre hidden across King's Landing.
Bran Accidentally Created The Mad King
Bran's only really able to affect the past in the sense that he's already done so, which is a tough concept to wrap your head around. But many believe the Mad King was hearing voices because Bran was sending those voices from the future.
The Grand Tyrell Conspiracy
UPDATED: We don't know if this was true, it seems unlikely with how Margaery was playing nice with the High Sparrow and secretly messaging the Queen of Thorns. Also the whole show of power at the Sept. But then again all this is moot due to the fact House Tyrell is gone as is the High Sparrow and the Faith Militant. The insanity with the High Sparrow is actually a long con played by the Tyrells.
Benjen Stark is Coldhands
Confirmed in Season 6, this theory still hasn't even been confirmed in the books. But the helper of Bran Stark is himself a Stark who fell afoul of the White Walkers and now lives North of the Wall.
Ned Stark Prepared Jon Snow's Grave In Secret
Again, the idea of Jon Snow being a bastard seems completely off, and Ned may very well have expected to one day reveal Snow's true heritage through a family grave in the crypt.
Jon Snow Will Be Resurrected
Confirmed at the Season 6 premiere, fans believed this to be true the moment he was murdered at the end of Season 5. Jon Snow doesn't just die. He's got too much to do.
