Game of Thrones was arguably the most influential TV show of the decade. It brought series to a new level of sophistication that many modern movies lack. Every year, people all over the world gathered every Sunday for the new season premiere and discussed the latest episode for the whole following week. Game of Thrones is a major title that will be remembered in history as one of the greatest shows ever.
Admittedly, the later seasons of the show were not as great as fans expected. The Song of Ice and Fire has a significant fanbase that is highly devoted to the works. Not surprisingly, the expectations were enormous. It may seem that the popularity of the show would decrease in time, but here we are, following this Game of Thrones House quiz to learn which family we would deal with if we were on “Planetos.”
That is because Game of Thrones fans are incredible! They know the tiniest details about the universe; they analyze every aspect of worldbuilding as true experts in geography, economy, agriculture, genetics, and so on. Personally, I’m proud to be a member of a community so intelligent and analytical.
These qualities usually help GoT fans to come up with the wildest theories. And many of those wild suggestions become true! If you’ve ever been on the book’s subreddit, you’ll know what I’m talking about.
For those fans who have no idea about this, I’ve prepared a short of ASoIaF theories that fans got right even before the show confirmed them.
This is one of the fans’ favorites! People were waiting for Cleganebowl for years and were finally rewarded in the last season. If you don’t know what I’m talking about, the name is just confusing a bit.
This theory predicts that the Hound and Mountain will face each other in the ultimate battle. How else would their rivalry of a lifetime end if not in an epic battle? Among all the things in season 8, this fight was the most fulfilling for many ASoIaF fans.
Undead Jon Snow
There is no way such an important character would die so late in the series while not accomplishing his goal. Of course, Game of Thrones is known for its cruelty towards characters, but Jon is an exception. He could not die at that point in the story.
Thus, many fans agreed that Jon would rise from the dead. And while the show Jon had no serious consequences, the theorists are sure such a resurrection will have an effect on him, especially so far North.
Mad Queen Daenerys
While I don’t like what the show has done with Daenerys in the last season, the books also hint at the grains of future madness in the Queen as it runs in her family. Though the book has her increasing brutality, the show has taken it all the way to mad.
I just hope the book will do it smoothly.
This is the theory that’s started the whole obsession with, well, theories. This is one of the earliest mind-blowing suggestions with a huge role in the plot. And to imagine that it had been around for years even before the show started!
If you don’t like this math, this is the theory about Jon’s true Stark/Targaryen parentage!
