Get a fandom big enough, and you’ll get more fan theories than you know what to do with. As a writer or a writer for a show, fan theories have got to be a huge marker of a successful series. As a writer, it would make me positively gleeful.
Also as a writer, and what I’d call and active reader/watcher, I can’t help but theorize myself. There are times when I watch a show or read a book, and in my free minutes (of not reading, going to school, or working) I’ll puzzle through what’s coming next. There are always a lot of possibilities, a lot of things that could possibly work. But the question is, what is the one that makes the most sense and fits the story the best (yep, I really am that much of a nerd).
So, what are my theories on this – the eve of Game of Thrones Season 6 – Season finale??
- Cersei’s trial – a whole lot of people are gathering at the temple in King’s landing and there have been whispers of stores of wildfire under the city. Since she can no longer get a trial by combat, Cersei’s options are severely limited. Being desperate and angry, her decision will be to burn it all down (literally). Unfortunately, Tommen is there and wearing gold (remember the witch’s prediction of all of Cersei’s children dying before her and in golden shrouds?).
- Dinner with Walder Frey – this is always a bad idea. Robb can attest to this. I’ve said before that Jaime can’t survive this whole series. Is this where Jaime will meet his sticky end? Maybe Arya will make an appearance or maybe Lady Stoneheart? I’m not sure, but guests of the Frey’s don’t generally enjoy their dinners, just sayin’…
- Jon’s parentage – this has been teased ALL season. While it’s possible that they’ll continue teasing us (there will be a lot of ground to cover with Cersei’s trial), I’m hoping we get a peak. Please?
- Night King – we haven’t heard from/seen him in a while, maybe a quick appearance?
What will tonight’s episode of GoT bring? Can’t say for sure, but I know it’ll be a long wait until next season. And if last season is anything of a hint, we’ll be in for a serious cliffhanger. Enjoy, only a few hours to go…
