10 Game of Thrones Fan Theories Better Than The Show

    Here at Screen Rant, there are few things we love more than hearing an awesome new fan theory. In the fantasy world of Game of Thrones it seemed like pretty much anything was possible. You can’t fly a dragon without encountering an ancient prophecy just vague enough to be promising. There are tons of great characters, interesting arcs, and tantalizing plot points. So it’s no wonder we had tons of great ideas about what would happen during season 8 of the show.
    Well. . .that was definitely something. No, we’re not going to complain about everything that wasn’t perfect but today we’re going to honor some of the best fan theories that would have been way more awesome than what actually went down in the show. We loved the idea of Jaime Lannister being Azor Ahai reborn but it seemed like the whole Lord of Light thing never really worked out. There were tons of theories about popular characters like Daenerys Targaryen and Jon Snow but the show featured no shortage of throwaway plot points and misdirection where they were concerned. We had also predicted everyone from Arya Stark to Varys would take down Cersei Lannister but no mere human had the honor when push came to shove.
    What was your favorite idea for the show that didn’t manage to make it into the official canon? Share it with us in the comment section and then click on the subscribe button to get access to the latest and greatest videos from us here at Screen Rant.

    It's not just that almost all fan theories are better then the actual show ending, it's knowing they intentionally avoided these better endings just to "subvert expectations."

    Dany should have lived, Jon should have taken the thrown, and had an epic battle with the night king , bran should have used his powers for good rather than selfish reasons and Jaime should have stayed with brienne. The end.

  • Kastiel Candora

    My theory for the long night battle:
    They should have had a Stark's vs White Walkers stand-off, the Night King is close to killing Jon but Bran takes control of the Night King and by controlling him he controls the undead army (why did the Night King obsess over killing Bran?).
    They then use that army to attack King's Landing.
    And other stuff....

    i also read a theory about when bran went back in time and the night king touched him
    that was the moment bran died and the night king took over
    now fast forwarding to the end of season 8 seeing bran alone looking at the sea
    slowly standing up and raising his hands
    all the people who died in the battle and were slaughtered by dany and her troops rise and start killing the last people alive brutally killing them
    jon still being alive cuz he was send north en drogon still alive could further the story

    ofc i read also the comment on this theory saying that drogon probably wouldnt follow jon
    still liked this theory though :p

    JAIME WAS NEVER SUPPOSED TO REDEEMED!!!! God I am so over hearing this. Just because you liked Jaime doesn't mean he was supposed to end up being the good guy! He was always a grey immoral character that had a very confusing life. But everything he did was to get back to Cersei. It was always Cersei. Get over the fact that Jaime was supposed to end up being a good guy hero. He wasn't ever going to be that

    Fav theory - Bran The Night King.
    They lose Winterfel, many redeemed and beloved characters die.
    But they do destroy the army of dead, but Night King isn't there.
    Later we see the Night King decimating and undead-ing ALL of King's Landing and Cersei dies (duh).
    KL has over a million people in it, that's a much larger army for the Night King.
    He then starts conquering and raising dead towards the North.
    Bran believes he has a way to end it all; change history.
    First he tries the Mad King, he caused his insanity. 2nd he gets everyone to build the Wall as Brandon The Builder, but tries to make it stronger.
    Finally he has to go back even further, but he needs the Godswood to do it. He links with that "master" tree and takes the body of a First Man when they were at war.
    This led to the Fae Girls making the Night King, and Bran became trapped.
    This explains why NK was trying to kill Bran, to end the nightmare.
    Dany dies in the final battle with NK, but not before giving birth to a child.
    Bran is horrified by fact that Bran is the Night King, slays his brother, and Night King dies.
    In the end, Jon takes the throne, but shortly after melts it down, declares every kingdom no longer a sub of King's Landing, and forever ensures peace.
    He does retake his position at the Night's Watch but not before removing "criminals only, no choice, life sentence" crap. He makes it a voluntary service to the realm.
    And Night Watch's goal - to ensure the dead are truly dead. To guard the realms of men.
    Best part? Dany dies fighting for the country she swore to protect, she NEVER becomes the "WTF Mad Queen".
    Jon's reveal has MEANING. Bran able to affect the past with Hodor and Eddard has purpose and dire consequences, but MEANINGFUL.
    The show was instead rushed and we got what NO ONE wanted.

    All of these were great theories, except for the one of Arya wearing Jaime's face to kill Cersei. That would technically mean she has to kill Jaime first. Also no one deserved to kill Cersei more then Jaime did. It would've been the most fitting conclusion to both their characters.
