Spoiler Alerts. So the fifth season of Game of Thrones just ended and you are left wondering what the hell you’re supposed to do until the next season is released. The fifth season of Game of Thrones was even more controversial and devastating than the previous four. Even some fans of the books got some nasty surprises when the sadistic writers behind the popular show decided it was a good idea to veer off the original story and kill off people who weren’t even supposed to meet their maker as of yet. All of these deaths and surprises have led to some rather interesting fan theories regarding the deadly Game of Thrones universe. With so many characters involved in the TV show and the books, there are basically an unlimited amount of fan theories out there. So to give you something to ponder during the long wait to the sixth season of Game of Thrones, below is a list of ten Game of Thrones fan theories that might possibly be the real thing. All of these theories attempt to explain and rationalize all the crazy happenings in the unpredictable world of Game of Thrones.
10 Theon Murdered His Own Child
9 The "Mad King" Wasn't Imagining The Conspiracy Against Him
8 The Faceless Men are Aligned (Knowingly or Not) With The White Walkers
7 Tyrion Lannister is a Targaryen
6 Syrio is Still Alive
5 Brienne is the "Beauty" that will Overthrow Cersei
4 The Dragon has Three Heads
3 The Wall Wasn't Built to Keep the White Walkers Out
2 Jon Snow is Azor Ahai
Although Melisandre believes that Stannis Baratheon is Azor Ahai reincarnated, based on the terrible decisions she makes throughout the show and books, were thinking she’s probably wrong about that tiny detail. Azor Ahai is a great warrior who managed to defeat the White Walkers before Game of Thrones began. A prophecy about him says that he will be reborn after a long summer. Because Jon is a great warrior and positions himself to lead the fight against the White Walkers, it would make a lot of sense for his character if he is Azor Ahai reincarnated. However, the final episode of season 5 of Game of Thrones might put a bit of a damper on this theory.
1 Jon Snow is a Targaryen
One of the most well-known fan theories is that Jon Snow is actually a Targaryen. The theory goes that Jon Snow is the child of Rhaegar Targaryen and Ned’s sister, Lyanna. Lyanna is believed to have died from complications due to childbirth. Some fans believe that when she was about to die, she asked that Ned raise Jon Snow as his own. Further proof of this theory comes from how alike Jon and Arya look. Arya is said to resemble Ned’s sister. If this fan theory is true, that would mean that Jon is Daenerys’ nephew and therefore the true heir to the throne.
