We’ve been following these Game of Thrones fan theories since the beginning of Season 8. Now that the show is over, it’s time to see if these Game of Thrones fan theories were right or wrong.
I generally don’t try to guess what’s going to happen in TV shows or movies. First of all, I’m usually wrong. Second of all, I just want to go along for the ride. Sometimes I’m interested in analyzing plot points and character development (see Media Medusa), but mostly I just want to sit back and lose myself in a really good story.
Busy? Pin this to your Pinterest board for later.
So when it came time to check out some Game of Thrones fan theories, I turned to someone else to put together a list. I found a list of 30 Game of Thrones theories on Esquire. Yeah, 30! Some of them were outrageous, some of them were sure things. But there were a few that I thought, for sure, were way out in left field that turned out to be true! (Hence, why I don’t even try to guess what’s going to happen in movies and TV shows.)
This is a live video from May 23, 2019 where I check off which Game of Thrones fan theories were true and which ones were a bunch of bunk. The fan theories are listed below the video. Watch the video to find out if they came true or not. I didn’t list the results on the blog so people can avoid spoilers.
