    Azor Ahai has never been mentioned in the show by name at least so I don't think we will actually see lightbringer wielded, and the prophecy Melisandre mentioned about the prince that was promised with lightbringer was very vague and only mentioned once. I think they will just use the prince that was promised (which is jon snow) and he will just slay the night king with Longclaw.

    Bran HAS to have a bigger part than just telling Jon he’s a Targ. That would be lame if that’s all it is. I think he’ll warg into the ice dragon and be the 3rd rider

    George rr Martin said that the ending would be bitter sweet so i have a plossible theory...
    In the final scene the night king sits on a frozen iron throne, as we zoom out too see the frozen state of westeros, zooming out evwn further we see essos as the waters between essos and westeros start to freeze, however we zoom out even further and finally we see the rest of the uncharted world. An ending like this would also make sense in the prophecy cuz maybe westeros isnt the birthplace of Azor ahai (prince/princess that were promised) maybe Azor ahai is in the west of westeros.

    Jamie lannister is the prince thay was promised. Because he is the son of aryes targaeran along with cersie as they are twins (hence the prince /princess that was promised) dany will burn him with dragon fire and nothing will burn EXCEPT the Gold Hand and jaime and cersie both are the azor ahai.

    Why is everyone thinking the showrunners would be intelligent enough to tie up the links of the previous season, they have already proved that they are useless without the book to guide them. It's gonna be simple, " the good guys will kill the bad guys, couple of unimportant good guys will die and maybe one important one."
    The ending will diabetically sweet with a hint of bitterness and a lot of meh.

    Wasn't little fingers called a little brother to Catelyn Stark if I'm not mistaken she made reference to that many times calling him a little brother of course I know they're not related but could the prophecy be fulfilled if Aria took little fingers face and killed Cersei could that work

    Can Bran warg into a dead animal? If so, then he could warg into Viserion and control his actions. If he wargs into a dragon, a magical creature, would there be second and third order consequences because of mixing magic?

  • jamcan 513

    Yo this I more of a question than a statement but, it's kinda something I kinda want to see. Okay so, what if Jaime is in on it with Cersei and she is using euron to attack jaime's feelings. So jaime would do anything to help her and her child because he thinks she is actually prego. We still haven't seen Danny with the northern house's so se don't know how that will go but, we also have to assume that if Danny gets accepted then so should jaime. I'm just saying don't except everything we see.

    • jamcan 513
      jamcan 513 2 months ago

      I am a true believer that Jaime won't hurt Cersei unless the innocent is involved and I believe that it will come down to that. Also I know we just saw Jaime leave king's landing leave by himself but he did look back or was he looking back a small force that would be able to convince the north that the helped. This would allow jaime to stay loyal to his family (something more important to that family than anything) and be able to keep his promise to the north.

    ShrekHasEbola 2 months ago

    I do agree that the Night King will be defeated early on. I assume this because Cersei doesn't plan to use the Golden Company to help the north, but considering that they won't be used for nothing, they would need to fight the survivors of the north. GRRM said that the ending is bittersweet, which means we can expect that some of our characters will still be alive in the north.
