Where my Game of Thrones fanatics at? It might just be me, but last week's episode kinda let me down. Maybe, I was still thinking of last year's Hardhome, and I wanted to see a spectacle. Like, Drogon, Viserion and Rheagal burning The Masters' ships at Slavers Bay. Or, maybe seeing Arya actually killing that awful, Waif.
I'm so friggin' stoked about the upcoming episode and everything that could go down that I decided to write an article (obviously)! The most likely twist (is it a twist?) is Littlefinger sending the Knights of the Vale to help Sansa and her army out.
Also, one of Ramsay's banner man switching sides at the last moment (Um, um, it'll come to me). Let's theorize some crazy sh*t that might happen when some Northern Bastards battle for Winterfell!
THE DEAD WILL RISE
I'm going to start off with the least bonkers of my theories. Common sense would dictate that The White Walkers would hold no power south of The Wall. Well, what would happened if Bran's at the wall and it messes with The Wall's mojo? Let's say the battle is won and Ramsay is slain by Jon. The Starks are victorious! All of a sudden, a bunch of people rise, and there's a zombified Ramsay.
WHY IT WOULD WORK
How else will Jon Snow convince people that The White Walkers are coming. Plus, it'd crazy to see everyone unite to fight the dead. This probably won't happen, but it's so much fun to theorize!
ONE OF DANY'S DRAGONS WILL COME TO KILL THE DEAD AND JON WILL RIDE A DRAGON
All right, W.T.F am I thinking? You already know what dragon I am referring to, right? Rheagal will come and swoop Jon up, with Ghost following them on the ground. Speaking of Ghost, he better not be there when the battle commences. I can't handle another death of a Dire Wolf. Lastly, what a way to confirm, R + L = J!
COULD IT WORK
It's all up to the Red Lord, I mean, R'hllor.
RAMSAY FILLETS THE ENTIRE STARK ARMY
The Starks lose the battle and Ramsay places each one of their corpses around Winterfell to end the episode. Honestly, this is what'd happen if that bastard wins this battle. I know, I know -- we don't want to see this, but remember, tis Game of Thrones.
WILL IT HAPPEN
It better not.
BRAN PULLS AN AVATAR
Wait, is this how Rheagal will come to Jon's rescue? No. This is also super-bonkers, but you never know after Bran downloaded Westeros' history just like Neo did in The Matrix. I'm still puzzle how the Stark's Dire Wolves made it across The Wall. We know that the Wildlings climbed The Wall, but in very small numbers. Maybe these wolves are the last ones to be hunted south of The Wall? Or, there are a population of animals that knew better then to go north?
COULD IT HAPPEN
THE ICE DRAGON RISES AND WUN WUN IS KING OF THE NORTH
EVERYONE BUT THE KARSTARKS WILL TURN ON THE BOLTON ARMY
The North remembers. Ya'heard that Ramsay? The Karstarks are a bunch of dicks, and this would be so rewarding to see everyone get behind the Starks of Winterfell once more. Now, I'm not sure how this would go down, but it totally should. Maybe, I am a sick Dire Wolf, but I want to see the Boltons get massacred.
So, do you think any of these theories might come true? Probably not. I firmly believe that if the dead will rise in The Battle of the Bastards; then everyone will go Hodor and lose their minds (too soon?).
I mean, Bran does have the brand of The Night's King, right? What happens if the The Wall was there solely to keep The Walkers magic in check (and behind the wall)? All I know, I can't wait for Game of Thrones, this Sunday night!
