Accurate fan theory of 'Game of Thrones' predicts Bran Stark will take the Iron Throne in the finale episode
This reddit user released spoilers ahead of 'Game of Thrones' season 8 episode 4 aired, and the details on hindsight are shockingly accurate
Ahead of 'The Last of Starks' episode of 'Game of Thrones' that aired on May 5, a Reddit user 'throwaway5873421' shared spoilers for the entire season and it has been shockingly accurate so far, except for one tiny detail. Starting from Rhaegal being shot down by Euron Greyjoy, Missandei getting executed by Cersei Lannister to Daenerys Targaryen, in turn, delivering a death sentence to Varys this user had got it all right. If the show were to pan out the way this user indicates, then the Iron Throne will belong not to Jon Snow, but to Bran Stark.
After Daenerys' horrific attack on King's Landing despite Cersei's soldiers surrendering, things at King's Landing will change. From the first look pictures of the episode and the trailer that was released, it looks like everyone is uneasy about Daenerys becoming the queen of the Seven Kingdoms. Arya is lurking in the shadows as she watches Dany face her soldiers after the war, amid battle spoils, which have all turned ashes because of 'Dracarys' (Dragonfire).
In the previous episode, Tyrion was already warned that the next time he failed his queen as her hand would be the last time and we are pretty sure that helping Jaime escape to help Cersei leave the Red Keep will be counted as one. The spoiler suggests that Daenerys will begin executing everyone in King's Landing, which would make Jon and Tyrion rethink their allegiance to her. Tyrion will also be arrested to be executed for freeing his brother, Jaime. He tries to convince Jon that letting Daenerys ascend the throne is not in the best interest of the realm nor Jon's family as his lineage will make him a threat to her claim to the throne.
The fan theory states that this results in Jon betraying Daenerys and stabbing her to death after which he would surrender himself. A council will then be formed to decide who will rule the seven kingdoms and after a speech by Tyrion, Bran Stark will be chosen through a voting system.
It is in the epilogue that we see Jon become a man of the Night Watch again, which would be a call back to Tormund's comment about Jon having the real North in him. Sansa Stark is expected to rule the North while Bran would oversee his council consisting of Tyrion, Davos, Sam, and Bronn as his advisors. Arya will leave. The episode is expected to end there, the user says.
However, if this is the direction that the last episode takes, we are sure there are going to be more fans signing the petition to remake the last season of the show. This direction would totally debunk the characters arcs that were built so far in the show and also, the prophecies that we were introduced to, even on the surface, did not take shape in a satisfying manner leading fans to call out the show for having a lethargic screenplay.
