Game of Thrones is a crazy show. Let’s face it. Before the show came by, we had fandoms, we had theories, and everything else, but the show has managed to propel all of that to a new level. We have had our fun, and as far as the TV show goes, we are in the last year of theorizing, and the fandom seems to be at peak performance.
The latest comes from a Redditor who listed out numerous predictions for Season 8, and might just have nailed the Night King‘s battle plan for the big end. Read on!
Game of Thrones fan Redditor thetripleb posted his predictions to the Game of Thrones subreddit, and he has a nice prediction for the Night King’s plan, as well as bits to support it. Check out the full post below:
The redditor thinks that the battle plan of the Night King will be to destroy all the kingdoms and the people, because after all, Valar Morghulis. However, he says the Night King will make it happen by using the classic Bait & Switch. With Jaime Lannister headed north, the Night King will send his army to fight Jon Snow, but he, and undead Viserion, will not be there.
The theory claims that he will fly over to King’s Landing, sacrificing his army of 100,000 for the one of 1,000,000 in King’s Landing. This would be a brilliant plot point as Cersei Lannister gets served poetic justice for her betrayal of Jon Snow, Daenerys Targaryen, and Tyrion Lannister, while the story streamlines as the Night King sits at the capital with a giant army while Jon, Dany and others plan to defeat him.
The theory also says Euron Greyjoy and The Golden Company also get turned to wights. Let’s take a moment to note that this matches Bran Stark‘s vision of King’s Landing showing the throne covered in snow, and the shadow of a dragon flying over the city.
The Bait & Switch has been done before, twice, back in Season 1 when Robb Stark fought the Battle of the Whispering Wood, and more recently Season 7 by the Lannisters at the Battle of Casterly Rock. It would be quite fitting if the Night King does end up doing this, almost poetic if you ask us.
There’s a hell lot more of good points in the list of predictions, so take a look. What do you think about this one? Talk to us in the comments, down below!
