  • Hodor: ‘Hold The Door’ Explained Hodor: “Hold the door!” Hodor just experienced one of the most heartbreaking death scenes we’ve seen on HBO’s “Game of Thrones.” He lived the vast majority of his life as a simpleton for the sole purpose of holding the door just long enough for Bran Stark to escape from the White Walkers into the night with […]
  • Night’s King Mark On Bran Stark Will Let The White Walkers Through The Wall One of the most important developments in HBO’s “Game of Thrones” Season 6 Episode 5 was when Bran Stark was touched by the Night’s King. The touch “branded” Bran in such a way that it revealed his location and damaged Bran’s magical protections; Bran, Hodor, Meera, the Children of the Forest and the Bloodraven were […]
  • Bran Stark Theory: ‘Hodor’ Reveal Means Bran Could Have Been Influencing Westeros All Along HBO’s “Game of Thrones” Season 6 Episode 5 had a heartbreaking ending in which we learned the reason why Hodor was a “simpleton.” Long story short: Bran warged into present-day Hodor while using his Greensight ability to visit the past (in the presence of past-day Hodor). Somehow the psychological link connected past- and present-Hodor, causing a […]
  • What is Littlefinger’s plan? In A Song of Ice and Fire and HBO’s “Game of Thrones,” Littlefinger is the chaos to Varys’ order. In the book series, Littlefinger has cunningly rescued Sansa Stark and gained power the Vale. He plans to marry Sansa to Harry Hardyng (“Harry the Heir”) to unite the Vale with the North to create a powerful […]
  • ‘Game of Thrones’: Rickon Stark And The Umbers Will Take Back Winterfell One of the most important scenes in HBO’s “Game of Thrones” Season 6 Episode 3 was when Smalljon Umber brought Rickon Stark to Ramsay Bolton as a “gift.” In all, it was a pretty good night for Ramsay. He lost one Stark (Sansa) only to gain another (Rickon) — and he now has two of […]
  • Jon Snow Is Back: Did He Warg Into Ghost? The major reveal in “Game of Thrones” Season 6 Episode 2 was that Jon Snow came back from the dead. The Red Woman Melisandre performed some witch magic on his lifeless body before giving up (her magic didn’t seem to work). Once all hope seemed to be lost — and Jon Snow’s lifeless body was […]
  • ‘Game of Thrones’: Jon Snow Comes Back From The Dead — What’s Next? Jon Snow comes back from the dead in Season 6 episode 2 of HBO’s “Game of Thrones.” Plenty of events occurred during the episode, but nothing was more exciting than the resurrection of Jon Snow. We still don’t know if R+L=J  (but we might find out next episode, as the “next week” teaser clip shows […]
  • Melisandre’s Necklace Could Help Jon Snow In the Season 6 premiere of HBO’s “Game of Thrones,” the big reveal comes at the end of the episode, when Melisandre the Red Woman reveals her true form to the audience. Instead of being a beautiful young woman, she’s actually an old crone — potentially centuries old. The show pointedly shows us Melisandre removing […]
  • Cleganebowl: The Mountain And The Hound Will Fight To The Death Here at A Song of Ice and Fire and “Game of Thrones” theories, we’ve already detailed two very important theories: First, Robert Strong is actually the Mountain’s reanimated corpse; and second, that The Hound is actually the gravedigger. In other words, both Clegane brothers (Sandor “the Hound” and Gregor “the Mountain“) are actually alive — […]
  • ‘Game of Thrones’ Season 6 Trailer: New Jon Snow Theory HBO has dropped a new trailer for “Game of Thrones” season 6, and with the trailer has come a new theory about Jon Snow’s fate. Of course. The trailer starts with a zoom-in over Jon Snow’s lifeless corpse , with a voiceover of Davos saying, “He’s gone.” Similarly, the trailer ends with a few quick […]
  • The Game Of Thrones Faces: Is Jon Snow Alive? TL;DR: HBO’s teaser images for Season 6 of “Game of Thrones” suggest that Jon Snow could still be alive. HBO stirred the theory pot in late February when it posted on its official Facebook page an image of dead faces. The only problem: Not all of the characters whose faces are shown are dead (yet). […]
  • The UnKiss: Sansa Stark’s Mismemory TL;DR: Sansa Stark thinks the Hound kissed her, but he actually didn’t (e.g. the “Unkiss”). The mismemory could signify Sansa’s attraction to the Hound. Sansa Stark has been established as an unreliable narrator, and perhaps her biggest lapse in memory — at least that the readers are aware of — is the “UnKiss.” So what […]
  • Robert Strong Is The Mountain’s Reanimated Corpse TL;DR: Ser Robert Strong is the reanimated corpse of Ser Gregor Clegane, the Mountain. Gregor Clegane — “the Mountain” — supposedly died when dueling Oberyn Martell to decide Tyrion Lannister’s fate. The Mountain, as his name suggests, is a massive man. He was a ruthless killer and was nigh unstoppable in one-on-one battles. Martell defeated […]
  • ‘Game of Thrones’ Season 6 Trailer Hints At Jon Snow Living Via Warg Powers TL;DR: The Season 6 “Game of Thrones” teaser trailer hints at the possibility that Jon Snow is alive because of his and/or Bran’s ability to warg. HBO released a teaser trailer for Season 6 of “Game of Thrones” this week, and while it involves no new footage, it lends itself to some theorycrafting nonetheless. Of course, […]
  • Sandor Clegane — The Hound — Is The Gravedigger TL;DR: Sandor Clegane — the Hound — is still alive, living as a novice on the Quiet Isle. This theory about Sandor Clegane is among the most popular Game of Thrones and A Song of Ice And Fire theories out there. The site awoiaf.westeros.org rounds up the key points of the theory, which, if true, means […]
  • Rickon Stark Would Be A Terrible Ruler TL;DR: Should Rickon Stark somehow come into power — be it in Winterfell, the Red Keep or somewhere else — he will be cruel and not very Stark-like. This theory about Rickon Stark was initially presented on Reddit by SonOfJack541. As noted above, the short theory posits that if Rickon is ever to rise to […]
  • According To This Theory, Tyrion Is A Targaryen TL;DR version: Tyrion Lannister is actually the son of the “Mad King” Aerys II Targaryen. “Prince Aerys … as a youth, he was taken with a certain lady of Casterly Rock, a cousin of Tywin Lannister. When she and Tywin wed, your father drank too much wine at the wedding feast and was heard to […]
  • D+D=T: A Tyrion Lannister Theory TL;DR version: Tyrion is Dany’s child (Rhaego). “To go north, you must journey south. To reach the west, you must go east. To go forward you must go back, and to touch the light you must pass beneath the shadow.” -ACOK, Daenerys III. Spoken by Quaithe. D+D=T is irrefutably one of the most insane fan […]
  • Stannis Sacrifices Shireen: Jon Snow Theory Takes A Hit TL;DR version: When Shireen was sacrificed by Stannis in HBO’s “Game of Thrones,” a semi-popular theory that Jon Snow will be risen from the dead through a sacrifice of Shireen took a hit. “A king’s blood. Only a king’s blood can wake the stone dragon.” –ASOS, Davos IV. Spoken by Melisandre. It’s not canonical — because it’s the […]
  • Why The Night’s King Is Interested In Jon Snow TL;DR version: The Night’s King is interested in Jon Snow because he sees some of himself in the current Lord Commander. “The gathering gloom put Bran in mind of another of Old Nan’s stories, the tale of Night’s King. He had been the thirteenth man to lead the Night’s Watch, she said; a warrior who knew no […]
