Alright, be prepared for crazy ideas and theories. I haven’t read any of the books that Game of Thrones is based on, so all of my theories are based off of the show and some YouTube theory videos like “The Last Harpy.” I’ve warned you though, so if you continue to read my post then you like seeing new perspectives on this show like me.
First off, I do believe more and more into the Jaqen H’ghar is Rhaegar Targaryen theory. Lots of videos talk about things like the rubies being knocked off Rhaegars breast plate by Robert Baratheon when he was killed. Rubies, possibly like the one that Melisandre has around her neck to hide her true looks from everyone. Another part of this theory is the fact that Rhaegar, obviously, loved Lyanna Stark. Does Arya remind Jaqen of Lyanna? If I also remember correctly from the show, Sir Barristan tells Daenerys that Rhaegar didn’t like fighting. Who’s a character that is suppose to be the head of a group of killers yet you never see him fight. Have any additions to this theory?
Thoughts on the second theory I wanted to bring up, the Lord of Light and Bran Stark. The Last Harpy said something on his YouTube video along the lines of “get the aluminum foil ready,” but take a second to think of some facts and possible outcomes. The Lord of Light followers are convinced there is only one god. Jaqen H’Ghar says there is only one god. Even Syrio Forel back in season one says there is only one god. If you take away the name of the gods, they all have something in common. Syrio Forel says, “There is only one god, and his name is Death.” Could death be the Night King? The Night King that has lots of theories coming forward that he could be Bran Stark through some Greenseer way. Jaqen tells Arya that there is only one god, and she knows his name. Everyone, like me, immediately jumps to connecting him to what Syrio says, but what if he wasn’t talking about death? What if Jaqen actually meant there is one god and you know his name, as in it’s Brandon Stark. There are also theories on The Lord of Light being Bran. Some theories say that Bran told the Mad King to “Burn them all!” Maybe…through his Greenseeing, he connects with Red Priests and Priestesses about the importance of fire and burning people. The religion is said to be old, and possibly it’s been miss-translated from burning the undead to burning anyone? In the 0.0001% chance all of these things line up, Bran would somewhat be the god of Light and Dark, Life and Death, the one God. I know that this theory is very far-fetched and crazy enough to stop reading, but I have one more theory if you’re interested.
My last theory I’ve started to come up with that I haven’t really seen any videos about, is that the White Walkers are actually trying to protect the Starks. Ok, you can stop reading if you want or you can get a little crazy with me for a second. The Starks have not been harmed by a White Walker yet. I know that’s not much of a stretch considering Bran and Jon are the only ones to interact with them, but think about Bran’s vision. In Bran’s vision north of the wall, he sees the white army and the Night King. (The Night King, I believe, is a Greenseer as well which is why he’s able to interact with Bran.) Bran turns to see the Night King just feet away from him and leans back in surprise. The Night King then grabs his arm as if to catch him, or in the same way someone would if you were trying to leave and they wanted to tell you something (mostly creepers in a bar). He’s feet away from Bran and grabbing him, but his weapon is still holstered on his back. Wouldn’t he take this chance to stop Bran from seeing his army in the future? Or if he’s wanting to get rid of all humans, wouldn’t Bran be just another human to get rid of? You may bring up that they chase him out of hiding, but Bran is still never harmed…everyone else is instead. Don’t say “hold the door,” it’s still too soon. You might bring up Hardhome and Jon being attacked there. I can’t argue this one much because he is attacked. You can notice though, the look of the generals face when he notices a Valyrian Steel sword and the Night King takes notice as well. Did they not know he was a Stark? He is only half Stark and he was in a Wildling camp. After this, the only other time I can think of Stark/White Walker interaction is when the All-Stars go north to capture a White Walker in season seven. Jon is battling White Walkers trying to get away, no backing here. Though, the Night King did stare at him with hundreds of White Walkers in between them. None of which attacked Jon. Jon then fights off a number of White Walkers and is tackled. Were they just trying to stop him from killing the Walkers? Don’t mind the holes in this theory, I’m just wanting to bring a new perspective to the Game of Thrones world. Maybe someone with more knowledge and insight can expand on this theory, or shut it down entirely. Who knows.
Either way, thanks for reading and let me know if you think I’m crazy and need to rewatch the entire series again, which I will either way, or if I could be on to something. Please leave vulgar language out of comments. I am a children’s book author and have children checking out this sight from time to time. Have a great week! House Stark for the win!
