The final season of Game of Thrones is finally here which means that all the questions viewers have had for years may finally be answered. At least we all hope they will be. With such a long hiatus between season 7 and season 8 fans have a had a lot of time to let their imaginations run rampant regarding theories on just what exactly is happening in Westeros. With so many threads on Reddit devoted to this exact topic, there has been a lot of fan speculation on what is going on. One of the most common theories being that Bran Stark is actually the Night King. But with so many other theories bouncing around on the internet, we have decided that it is time to compile the most compelling ones.
Take a look at the top 22 fan theories associated with all of your favorite characters. From Daenerys Targaryen and Jon Snow’s unique family ties to certain prophecies that foretold of who would actually rule it is amazing what some fans have concocted up to answer these very pressing questions. But we all know we just want the answer to this one: who will end up on the Iron Throne?
A Wight Family
The teaser trailer for the final season had Arya running through the Winterfell crypt-like she was being chased by something. The Night King has the power to bring back anyone who has died as a Wight, so some fans thought he might decide to raise the deceased members of the Stark family to attack the living Starks from within.
This would be an excellent way for the Wights to then enter Winterfell from within and not have to lay siege for too long.
