Season 8 Theories

Check out our editor's favorite theories and predictions for the upcoming and final season of Game of Thrones.

Cersei will become the Mad Queen

After Cersei set the entire Sept of Baelor aflame and declared herself ruler, this theory shouldn’t catch anyone by surprise. Throughout the entire series she has been having increasingly loss of perspective and control. She has overwhelmingly narcissistic tendencies and has to empathy for others. Now that she has no children remaining, her terror and tyranny has only just begun.

Arya's Kill List

Arya’s will be finished with her famous kill list. Arya, a fan favorite, has made very good progress on her list in Season 7 with Walder Frey. Be prepared for her to wear and add a few more faces to her pouch.

Tyrion is actually a Targaryen

"Tyrion Lannister is also believed to be one of the prophesied heads of the dragon along with Dany and Jon. It comes from the theory that mad King Aerys Targaryen had an affair with Tywin Lannister's wife, Joanna, the mother of Tyrion, which might explain why Tywin hated him so much. And despite what happens in the books, the TV show is pointing in that direction, with Tywin saying "you're no son of mine" just before Tyrion shoots him with an arrow."
