Being as massive as the Game of Thrones fandom is, it is no stranger to theories. Season 6 ended a long time ago, and we have to wait for a longer time than usual for a new episode this year, because as you know, Season 7 filmed on a delayed schedule than usual. Now that we are in a zone where spoilers aren’t dropping as fast as they used to, while filming was going on, which means that we can focus more on the speculations and theorizing, and the latest one which is doing the rounds, is that Game of Thrones is actually taking place inside the eye of a giant, and it actually has some solid arguments in its favor. Read on!
Now, you might remember Old Nan, who featured in the early episodes of Game of Thrones, known for her stories, and being the source of the phrase, “sweet summer child.” Old Nan used to tell a lot of stories, with many of them believed to be rooted in truth. She talked about Winter and White Walkers, back in Season 1, and she eventually turned out to be quite factual about it. It is being said now, that another one of her stories might be true. Back in the third episode of Season 1, Robb Stark tells Bran Stark about a story she told him, saying :
“One time she told me the sky is blue because we live inside the eye of a blue-eyed giant named Macumber.”
We found out that it was not just Old Nan making a story up all by herself, when Tywin Lannister, in Season 3, told Oberyn Martell something similar, saying :
“Some believe the sky is blue because we live inside the eye of a blue-eyed giant.”
Now, we are aware of how crazy it sounds, but it’s gathering steam because of some signs from HBO, in the Season 7 promos which we think could be hinting at this possibility. which looks like a nod in that direction. After a long wait, we finally found out the release date in a Facebook announcement, where a block of ice melted in a live video, to reveal the date, followed by a promo. Check it out below :
This week, we got the first teaser promo of Season 7, as well. Watch it, below :
Now, there seems to be a common thing between the two, they both end similarly : the camera pulls out of a giant blue eye. Could it indeed be Macumber’s eye?
There seems to be another indicator supporting this theory, too, and it has to do with the opening sequence of the show. Watch it in the video, below :
The iconic sequence which shows us the whole map of the seven kingdoms, seems to be situated inside a Dyson sphere, rather than on a globe, like a normal map would. A Dyson sphere is said to be a structure which forms around a star, with the sides curved around. If this is actually true, which is possible considering the fact that this show is quite crazy at times, it could very well mean that everything we see is actually the inside of Macumber’s eye, or just inside a blue sphere exaggerated with a metaphor.
Now, the blue eye we saw in the promos could just be the eye of the Night King and nothing more. However the (whatever little we saw of the) face accompanying the eye looks more of a giant’s than a White Walker’s. Nothing is set it stone, yet, but hey, we’ll see it when we see it, hopefully when Season 7 premieres on July 16th.
What do you think about this theory? Could it be true? Tell us in the comments, down below!
