'The Simpsons' predicted the King's Landing inferno two years before it happened on 'Game of Thrones'
'The Simpsons' paid tribute to 'Game of Thrones' in a 2017 parody episode titled 'The Serfsons' set in medieval Springfield where Homer, Marge, Bart, Lisa, and Maggie played out the fantasy show's characters
'Game of Thrones' fans were furious on Sunday as the mother of dragons—Daenerys Targaryen—and her last dragon went on a rampage and burnt Kings Landing to the ground leaving thousands of men, women, and children dead.
The surprising twist left fans and followers fuming. However, the very dramatic scene had been predicted by 'The Simpsons' almost two years ago.
As it turns out, 'The Simpsons' paid tribute to 'Game of Thrones' in a 2017 parody episode titled 'The Serfsons'.
The parody episode took viewers away from The Simpsons' modern setting and back to medieval Springfield where Homer, Marge, Bart, Lisa, and Maggie played out the show's characters.
After witnessing Daenerys burn Kings Landing to the ground, fans were dumbstruck at how similar the scene was to 'The Serfons' where the Simpson family watches a dragon burn Springfield to ashes.
Fans took to social media to express their shock at the uncanny resemblance. One fan shared, "Writers at The Simpsons got a crystal ball or something?!?!?" While another fan added, "Freaky AF how The Simpsons knew about the #MadQueen before anyone else." A third fan wrote, "Well I will be damned they predicted the future again."
This is not the first time that 'The Simpsons' have made freakishly precise predictions. They had previously predicted that Donald Trump would win the presidency and that Finnish economist Bengt Holmström would win the Nobel Prize. Both the predictions came true.
Last year, they had also hinted at how there is a greater cosmological link between physicists Stephen Hawking and Albert Einstein. Around two decades later, Hawking died on the day that his German counterpart was born.
'The Simpsons' had also predicted the Arab Spring, the FIFA football scandal, Greece's economic crisis and the discovery of the Higgs-Boson particle.
The show also featured events such as Siegfried and Roy's tiger attack and Lady Gaga's Super Bowl performance long time before the events actually happened.
