One spoiler ahead!! George R. R. Martin does not mind fan theories. In fact, he’s said that fans have guessed at plot lines correctly. But… he won’t verify those theories because he’s still got his book series to finish and Game of Thrones showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss still have lots of story to tell. The Game of Thrones books and the HBO show are full of characters and possibilities, and the long time between each new Game of Thrones book and new season of the show leaves fans with only one thing to do: speculate.
However, Martin says he's not going to be influenced by what fans think or want. And as we know, he’ll kill a character faster than you can say valar morghulis. “Let them have the debates and discussions among themselves. I’m very gratified that so much discussion has taken place but I’m not going to let that influence how I write the books. I’m going to write the books the way I always planned to write the books and let the chips fall where they may.” But that doesn't stop fans of the A Song of Ice and Fire world from making predictions and concocting theories about what's really going on in Wessos and Essos - and this list of GoT fan theories has the most interesting ones on the Internet.
Fans spends thousands of hours online and at cons swapping their GoT theories. And because they know just how Martin’s mind works and have pored through the books at great length, their theories are true to form with the world they stem from.So what are the most popular and (more importantly) most believable ASOIAF fan theories? Upvote those that might just be on point and downvote the theories obviously written by someone wearing a tinfoil hat in their basement. Have a theory of your own?
