If there’s one story fans are eagerly waiting to see wrapped up, it’s Game of Thrones. Long have readers of the Song of Ice and Fire series and viewers of HBO’s Game of Thrones crafted theory upon theory about how the grand fantasy epic will conclude. Now, though, someone might have stumbled upon the theory to end all theories.

A recent Reddit post has caught the attention of Game of Thrones fans who think there might be something to the rampant speculation. This is one long theory, so best to buckle in and, you know, brace yourself for any theoretical spoilers:
I think that Jaime will convince at least a contingent, if not the entire Lannister Army to join him in going North.
The combined armies go north and fight the army of the dead, defeating it but at great cost. However, the Night King and his dragon are not there. Why?
They flew south and destroy King’s Landing, trading his army of 100,000 for the 1,000,000 in King’s Landing including Cersei. They foreshadowed it too much in the last episode.
Euron and the Golden Company arrive at King’s Landing to a trap, where they are also killed and join the Night’s King army.
Dany finds out she’s pregnant
Bran and Sam keep Jon’s parentage a secret after Dany and Jon declare they are getting married, or they at least tell Jon who doesn’t have a chance to tell Dany before the end.
Jamie ends up at the end killing Cersei to fulfill the prophecy in the last battle. He survives to become the 1000th Lord Commander and restore the wall and honor to the Night’s Watch
Bronn survives and gets The Twins when it’s all over, as Tyrion is good to his word to double what he is being paid (1 castle)
The Hound survives and stays with Tyrion, who retires as Hand of the Queen and goes back to Casterly Rock as it’s Lord. He changes the Lannister’s wealth from gold to wine, as he opens his vinyard there and becomes rich by supplying the 7 Kingdoms. Remember there’s always a Clegane to help a Lannister, so The Hound goes with him.
Cleganbowl never happens because they hate us
Gendry survives and is legitamized by Jon/Dany
Bittersweat ending is that Dany gives birth to a child, maybe even twins, but dies in childbirth or shortly after. Jon becomes King of the 7 kingdoms, but loses another love of his life and raises his children/child
In the battles, all the dragons die. However, in some last scene it’s discovered that they laid eggs before the last battle.
The eighth and final season of Game of Thrones is slated for release in 2019. It’s anyone’s guess what will happen in the last season of the show based on the novels by George R. R. Martin, as the show long ago outpaced the author’s novel output. Martin’s sixth novel, The Winds of Winter, is predicted to release this year.
