This insane Game of Thrones fan theory about Bran Stark will blow your mind

New photos from Game of Thrones season 6 episode 3: Oathbreaker

Game of Thrones fans were excited when the preview for the 3rd episode showed that Bran Stark and Three-Eyed Raven would witness the Tower of Joy scene. It is a very crucial event in the series as it might reveal us who Jon Snow’s parents are and if the R + L = J fan theory is proved correct, it will have huge implications for the various characters in the series.

Sadly, the showrunners decided that it wasn’t the right moment to reveal everything and we just witnessed the fight between Ned Stark, Howland Reed and their 5 companions against Ser Arthur Dayne and an another member of the Kingsguard whose name wasn’t mentioned in the scene. In the books, the fight was between the 7 people on Ned’s side versus 3 members of the Kingsguard, which included Ser Arthur Dayne, Ser Oswell Whent, and Ser Gerold Hightower.

While many fans might be disappointed that the episode didn’t show us what happened when Ned went and met Lyanna, there was one incident that has made the fans jump with excitement.

This is the 2nd vision that we saw in this season and to everyone’s surprise, in this vision when Bran screamed “father“, Ned seemed to hear it and he immediately tuned back and looked if anyone was standing behind him but as it was Bran’s vision, Ned couldn’t see him. Despite the Three-Eyed Raven telling Bran, “The past is already written. The ink is dry,” it seems that Bran can actually reach out to other people through his visions.

After the episode ended, Reddit user NegativeKarmaSniifer posted this theory.

From S6E3, Bran realizes that others can hear him during the visions from the past, but doesn’t understand that they cannot fully understand him.

He attempts to reason with King Aerys when shown a vision of him.

The King only hears whispers, and is driven mad by it.

Bran tries to fix this, however makes it worse.

Mad King Aerys burns Bran’s grandfather alive while Bran frantically tries to stop him.

All he hears is whispers.

Bran sets the events of the show in motion.

As insane as it sounds, it might be possible and soon other people started commenting and another user added to the theory by saying that the Three-Eyed Raven is an older version of Bran Stark, who is training his younger self to correct the mistake that he couldn’t correct.

Now this additional theory seems a bit farfetched to me as we know that these are just visions and Bran is looking at the past through the eyes of the Weirwood trees. So it doesn’t seem that both of them are the same person, unless there’s some secret technique which the Three-Eyed Raven knows, using which a person can do more than just looking through the eyes of Weirwood trees. Also the real name of Three-Eyed Raven is Lord Brynden Rivers, who was a legitimized Great Bastard of Aegon IV Targaryen. So the theory of they being the same person seems highly unlikely.

Recent leaks from the set of House of The Dragon point at Rhaenyra Targaryen and Laenor Velaryon’s wedding celebrations?

Published

Filming for Game of Thrones prequel House of The Dragon is moving very swiftly, as evident from the frequent leaks we’re witnessing with every passing day. Though HBO has been mum about revealing any more info about the show, these periodic leaks are causing waves of excitement amongst the fans, as they’re left wondering and speculating who’s who in the new set pictures. Here’s one of the theories we have been pondering about looking at the most recent leaks, the crew of House of The Dragon is gearing up for a tourney being held for Rhaenyra Targaryen and Laenor Velaryon’s wedding celebrations.

There are plenty of factors that point towards the above conclusion. One, in the last few days, we have seen a few leaks showing a young Rhaenyra Targaryen and Laenor Velaryon taking a walk together on a beach. Two, we recently had more pictures of Matt Smith as Daemon Targaryen filming on set, one in Royal costume and the newest ones in Targaryen battle gear. Props for his dragon Caraxes were not spotted as well, and since he mostly rides Caraxes for a battle, it seems more than likely that he’s donning the armour for a tourney.

Also, there were pictures of a Targaryen camp being set up, close to the place where Daemon Targaryen was spotted in costume. There are not many soldiers in the view, so it doesn’t seem to be like a preparation for war.

However, one of the flaws to the theory is that in the book, the tourney was held at King’s Landing, while all the shots above have been taken close to a beach. Tell us about your theories in the comments below!

Does Melisandre’s ‘Green Eyes’ prophecy predict Arya killing Daenerys?

Published

on

arya-daenerys-green-eyes-prophecy

“You will shut many eyes forever – brown eyes, blue eyes, green eyes.” So said Melisandre of Asshai when she met Arya Stark for the first time. This prophecy has played out since then, with both ‘brown eyes’ (Walder Frey) and ‘blue eyes’ (Night King) succumbing to Arya’s blade. Fans have long predicted the green eyes to signify Queen Cersei. But the equation changed with Game of Thrones Season 8 Episode 5 ‘The Bells’ when another pair of green eyes became very important – Queen Daenerys Targaryen.

In an unfathomably shocking act of madness, Daenerys Targaryen torched thousands of innocent King’s Landing civilians in Game of Thrones’ penultimate episode, and as such established herself as the most devastating villain of the series ever.

Before Dany’s Mad Queen twist, Cersei was being regarded as the ‘Mad Queen’, mainly for blowing the Sept of Baelor with Wildfire in Season 6, but also for her general ruthlessness and murderous ways. The Lannister Lioness’ green eyes are quite famous and have been referenced multiple times in the books and the show.

Now, Cersei has been on Arya’s kill list since Season 2 and she even came to King’s Landing with the purpose of killing her. Melisandre’s prophecy in Season 3 also included green eyes, so many fans thought Arya will fulfil this target next. That expectation was strengthened when Arya left Winterfell on ‘unfinished business’ in episode 4.

But Sandor Clegane turned Arya back from that path and she went on to survive the burning of the city by just an inch. With Cersei now dead and Arya witnessing Daenerys’ carnage first-hand, it is all too possible that the significance of ‘green eyes’ has changed for Arya.

arya-daenerys-green-eyes-prophecy

Interestingly, Daenerys’ eyes were not even supposed to be green. In the books, they are purple, and in keeping with the unusual physiological traits of Valyrian Dragonlords from whom Daenerys is descended. But Emilia Clarke, the actor who plays Daenerys in the show, has green eyes. Although she wore purple contacts in the unaired pilot of Game of Thrones, that idea was discarded in the main show and Clarke stuck to her natural eye colour.

If the show follows the books in terms of major plot points (and Daenerys’ death should be a major plot point) then the Arya-killing-Daenerys-because-of-prophecy scenario is unlikely, because book Daenerys does not even have green eyes. But the show has introduced many plot twists – so this is not totally implausible either.

What do you think of this theory? Will Arya fulfil the ‘green eyes’ prophecy by killing Daenerys or some completely different end awaits the ‘Queen of Ashes’? Tell us in the comments!

Here’s what Arya Stark and her white horse could mean for Game of Thrones

Here's what Arya Stark and her white horse could mean for Game of Thrones

Game of Thrones Season 8 episode 5 “The Bells” had a lot going for it. So many happenings and so many deaths in just one episode, but it ended with a scene that baffled quite a lot of users. We saw Arya make her way through the destruction in King’s Landing, and find a white horse, whom she rides out of the city. Here’s what it could mean for the show, and the series finale.

White Horses have been used as a symbol in storytelling for a long time now, for both good and bad things. However, fans are speculating that this particular bit might be pointing towards a Bible verse that talks about the four horsemen of the apocalypse. The passage says:

“And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him.”

Here's what Arya Stark and her white horse could mean for Game of Thrones

Arya and death have danced for a long time in the show, and it seems like the show is hinting that Arya will have a final battle with death in the series finale. We saw who brought death in “The Bells” — Daenerys Targaryen, and it feels like could be the second bit of foreshadowing that Arya could be responsible for Daenerys’ death, after the ‘green eyes’ clue.

It also connects to both Arya and Daenerys, as Ned Stark used to ride a white horse, and so did Daenerys, at the beginning of the show. Maybe it’s things coming together for Arya and Daenerys, both of whose fathers were murdered in King’s Landing.

Either that, our we will get our expectations subverted again. What do you guys think? Talk to us in the comments, down below!
