Game of Thrones: Bets, Forecasts, Theories
Quite soon the Season 7 of the series “Game of Thrones” will be released. The story is coming to an end. But as we all know, the creators of the series often “kill” the characters quite unexpectedly, they introduce a change in the plot of George Martin’s books, or even outstrip the development of the printed version. This article contains the most famous theories and fan projections about the key events of the seventh season.
John Snow will inherit The Iron Throne
This theory has long been passed in the circle of fans from word of mouth. Who is actually John Snow, until clearly stated, but almost every viewer believes that he is not the son of Ned Stark. In brief, the story of its origin sounds like “R + L = J”, that is, Reagar plus Lianna equals John. Ned himself, first, fervently loved his wife, somehow does not look with a single bastard, and does not look like a traitor. Secondly, Lianna, Ned’s sister, who was dying in the Dorn’s mountains on a bloodied bed, until the last asked her brother to promise her something. Thirdly, at the time of Lianna’s death, the Knights of the Royal Guard were near her, not as killers, but as watchmen. Many people think that Reagar and Lianna loved each other, and Robert Baratheon, who had strong feelings for Lianna, wanted to kill the heirs of the throne that threatened his rebellion. So John is Ned’s nephew and he is either an illegitimate son of a prince or an absolutely legitimate heir to the crown. But there is one more tiny nuance: he swore an oath of the Night Watch pat.
Tirion — Targarien
This explains several well-known facts at once, on the one hand, Taiwyn Lannister’s hate for his “own” son, and on the other — Tirion’s incredible condescension for his father. The fans suspect that Tyrion was born with a dwarf just because of the blood of the Targariens, who for three centuries in a row preferred incest to a normal marriage, which led to a mutation. His appearance in the book also hints at the fact that he is only partly Lannister. His hair is not golden, like that of the “lion’s lords,” but platinum (such as the dragon’s kings and queens) with an admixture of black strands, and one eye is dark purple, like the eyes of Daenerys. Tywin often stated openly, supposedly a dwarf is not his son. Perhaps he was right.
John Snow will have ice dragons
Maybe only one, not several, but what! About them we know almost nothing, but John in the book series often mentions the tales of old Nan about the ice dragons who supposedly can defeat the fire-breathers. Fans assume that Snow (the heir of the Targariens) can also command these creatures. Some ancient dragon can doze off behind the Wall or even in it — supposedly Snow will awaken him and protect Västerås from the Daeneris. In the end, it’s the same “Song of ice and flame”.
Cersei will die at the hands of the closest
Everyone knows that even in her youth, Cersei was predicted that she would die by the hand of “younger brother”, and this explains her hatred for Tirion — she thinks that it is about him. However, the word “valoncar”, used in the prophecy, makes the audience think that it may be about someone else. For example, about the very Jam, or even about Tommen, the youngest of her own sons.
In his prophetic dream, Daenerys sees Reyegar, he is the heir of the Mad King, says that “the dragon has three heads.” Given that the image of the “dragon” in the Martin world is often used metaphorically, denoting the descendants of the genus Targarien, fans of the series think that it was about them. Since Deyeneris also has three quite real dragons, the fans decided that three heirs are needed to ride them. According to one of the popular theories, these Targariens, apart from the Daeneris, will be Tirion Lannister and John Snow — and now imagine this trinity together!
Eigon is not really Targarien
Suddenly appeared Eigon Targarien, it would seem, enticed all the cards. Nevertheless, it would be too easy to take and give the throne to the legitimate heir. Fans assume that he, too, is not what he pretends to be — in fact, Reagar’s son, not at all killed in infancy. It is possible that he is a remote relative of the Targarienes of the Blackfire clan or simply a doll in the hands of those who benefit from planting the heirs of this blood on the throne. This version is confirmed by the prophetic vision of the Deyeneris, in which, among other things, the puppet dragon was also imaged.
