Game of Thrones

HBO's Game of Thrones has come to be known for its unexpected twists and unpredictable deaths. The pre-final episode that released this week left most of the audience in disbelief, giving rise to wild predictions of how the series will come to an end. With the final episode of Game of Thrones airing next week, we spoke to some ardent fans about their theories

Daenerys Targaryen 

The Prophecy of the Green Eyes

Athiyamaan Sisubalan and Bhargavi Poopathi, die-hard fans from Coimbatore believe: “Daenerys Targaryen lost everyone and so became the mad queen. All Targaryens are purple-eyed except for Daenerys, who has green eyes. If Melisandre’s prophecy claiming that  Arya Stark is destined to shut blue, brown and green eyes and she is already done with blue and brown, Arya may be the one to kill Daenerys."

Rebellion within the ranks

"Jon Snow will rebel against the Mad queen along with Tyrion Lannister, thereby causing a war between the Unsullied and the Northerners. Daenerys’ army will be destroyed. While Jon, who loves Dany might not be able to kill her, as Melisandre’s prophecy suggests, Arya will stab Dany. This may cause Daenerys to use the strongest weapon (Drogon) burn Arya and Winterfell. Attempting to save his sister (Arya), Jon will step into the fire and remain unburnt. Everyone will realise that he is Azor Ahai (the Promised Prince) and bow to the rightful heir. Dany will die confused in Jon's hands. Tyrion will be made the Warden of the North, marrying Sansa Stark and Arya will probably become the Hand of the King." predicts Arun Raaj, a budding entrepreneur from Coimbatore.

Queen of Meereen

Aravindha Rajan, a dedicated fan from Tirupur says, "Jon no longer loves Dany like he used to but he could never kill her. In the eventuality of a batter between the Unsullied and Winterfell, Dany might have a change of heart fearing the loss of her dragon, Drogon and will set back to rule Meereen leaving the Iron Throne to Jon Snow. After all, Dany was never a bad person."

Azora Ahai

Pranav Muralikrishna, a media student from Kozhikode has an interesting theory. He says, "Jon, as predicted, will be Azora Ahai, the Promised Prince. The prophecy tells that he has to kill his beloved to overcome the greater evil. So, it might end up as Jon killing his beloved Dany to overcome the greater evil which is Daenerys Stormborn herself in this scenario." 

Dany and Drogon

The one where Bran wargs 

Vishal V, a college student from Ooty says, "Bran Stark hasn't done much since the season's start and we all know, he could warg into literally anyone. So, it is about time, Bran wargs into the mind of Drogon and burns the Iron throne, once and for all."

Tyrion Targeryan?

Vishnu Prasad from Coimbatore predicts, "Only Targeryans could tame a Dragon but Tyrion did so in season 6 when Dany was gone. There has always been a theory that Tyrion is the bastard child of Joanne Lannister and the Mad King (Aerys Targaryen). So, there is a good chance of Tyrion sitting on the Iron throne once Dany is dead."

These are just our theories. But, we are talking about Game of Thrones after all, and anything is possible and nothing is impossible. Looks like we'll have to wait to see how this one pans out.
