3 Game of Thrones fan theories that might have come true in Season 8 Episode 1

Game of Thrones Season 8 is finally here.

The final chapter of the Game of Thrones HBO franchise is set to be a rollercoaster of emotions as characters and plotlines blur in the finale of the iconic series. A major part of the new millemuim’s pop culture, Game of Thrones has a legion of fans the world over due to its entertaining storylines and intriguing yet relatable characters. As the first of six episodes dropped this Sunday (13.04.2019), it is clear that this season will confirm afew fan theories that have been circulating since season one.

Here are 3 fan theories that may have been proved right in Season 8 Episode 1:

1. Jon Snow is truly a Targaryen.

It might have been a clifhanger in Season 7, but in Season 8, Jon Snow’s bloodline comes to the fore as a major gamechanger for several characters; most importantly for him. Given the chilling news by his bestfriend and allie Samwell Tarley, Jon Snow is said to be the son of Lyanna Stark (Ned Stark’s sister) and  Prince Rhaegar Targaryen (who was the eldest son and heir to King Aerys II Targaryen). Therefore, Jon Snow, once known as Ned Stark’s bastard child is in actuality, the true heir to the Iron Throne. Jon Snow is Aegon Targaryen, Sixth Of His Name.

His lineage becomes more obvious as he rides on of Daenerys Targaryen’s dragons. Dubbed the King in the North, things are set to get a little bit complicated as it is reveals that Snow is actually the rightful King of the Seven Kingdoms. Will be tell his new girlfriend Daenerys and will she bend the knee? What will become of their relationship?

2. Jaimie Lannister will pay for his sins.

The Kingslayer Jaimie Lannister rides into Winterfell and meets a ‘long, lost friend’ in the last half of Season 8 Episode 1. The two lock eyes, and the tension is so thick, not even a sword made of vallerian steel could cut through it. As the first episode sets the pace for the finale season, the new position Bran holds as Three Eyed Raven presents the formerly helpless Stark boy, as a more central powerful figure. Truly, a much better position for Bran against the one-handed once-famous knight.

As the tension between House Stark and House Lannister continues, it is not yet confirmed just how Jaimie will fair ahead of the war against the Night King. Will Bran kill him off before the Night King does?

Either way, it is pretty obvious, that it’s not going to be a good result for the Lannister.

3.The Night King is from House Targaryen.

Among the biggest shockers from Season 8 is the little clues into who the Night King truly is. Ice cold, and brutal in his approach, the Night King is royalty among the Whitewalkers. But it seems, he may have also been royalty, even among the living. As young Lord Ned Umber is found in an abandonned home, it is clear that the Night King is keen on sending a message. According to Refinery29, House Umber in Last Hearth (the closest city to The Wall), Tormund, Beric, and their group found young Ned Umber tacked to the wall surrounded by a spiral made of human hands and arms.

It has been discussed that the message from the Night King is eerily similar to the House Targaryen sigil. Which might mean that the Night King is not out to take down Jon Snow and his army, but rather to be ‘reunited’ with his family members, Jon Snow aka Aegon Targaryen and Daenerys Targaryen.

According to Time, co-showrunner David Benioff commented on the cave drawings in one post-episode discussion where he said that the White Walkers stole the imagery from the Children of the Forest. “It’s supposed to be something that’s very evocative of the thousands of years that have passed since these caves were first explored and the paintings were first made. And also obviously something that’s quite relevant to the current storyline because it’s about how these two disparate peoples united to defeat the common enemy,” he said. “One of the things we learn from these cave paintings is that the White Walkers didn’t come up with those images, they derived them from their creators, the Children of the Forest. These are patterns that have mystical significance for the Children of the Forest. We’re not sure exactly what they signify, but spiral patterns are important in a lot of different cultures in our world, and it makes sense that they would be in this world as well.”
