15 Shocking Speculations For Season 6 of Game Of Thrones


Season 6 of Game of Thrones is less than a month away, and already many theories and speculations have seen fruition given that there is barely any source material from the books now to get references from.

Nonetheless, by examining HBOs First and Second Trailers for Season 6, and judging by the many released official photos, some pretty interesting theories were concocted by fans around the globe, along with some stunning artwork to go with it at times. Here are 15 that we believe sound either plausible, or interesting enough to occur if the case.

15 – The Tower Of Joy Will Reveal R+L=J? (Or Not?)

One of Bran’s flashbacks will be him watching his father, young Ned Stark, at the Tower of Joy at the end of Robert’s Rebellion. That scene, which was recalled as a dream from Ned’s perspective in the very first book, has been the source of many theories over the years. What was the promise he made to his dying sister while she “laid in a bed of blood” (A great metaphor for death at Childbirth)

Maybe R+L=J, that Jon Snow is the son of Rhaegar Targaryen and Lyanna Stark? Maybe she had twins, as depicted in this fan art, the other twin being Meera Reed. Since the only 2 survivors of this battle were Ned and his loyal bannerman Howland Reed, maybe this theory is close to true as well…

    So The Mountain is back from the dead and what’s the one sure way of killing an undead person in GoT? Fire. And what’s the one thing The Hound is scared of? Fire. And who does The Hound hate the most? The Mountain. And why does he hate him? Because The Mountain shoved his face in the fire. But what’s the only sure way to kill his charming brother? Fire. It’s all heading towards a fiery conclusion!

    Is it just me, or does Davos grab Longclaw in that bit? Here’s a crazy idea…Davos gets hurt, drops Longclaw, somebody else picks it up and stabs it into Davos’ pure and devoted heart, thereby accidentally producing the new Lightbringer.

    Most of these are hardly shocking. Most of them are natural and logical progressions and assumptions.

    Seeing as trailer 2 shows Davos elsewhere, I think it’s safe to say nothing is happening to him at Castle Black
