I really don’t care if this doesn’t go with the theme of the blog. That being said, follow me after the jump for insane crackpot theories of A Song of Ice and Fire by George RR Martin. Mega spoilers below.
I’m going to break split this up by character and where they will end up when all is said and done.
Jon Snow- R+L=J comes true. Jon is legitimized by Robb and rallies the North. He will marry Dany and sit on the Iron Throne. Saving Westeros from the threat of the Others. Controlling the dragons and ushering in a new golden age. His heritage is either revealed by Howland Reed, Benjen Stark or discovered in Lyanna’s tomb.
Bran- He will replace Bloodraven. He will warg a dragon and be a major player in stopping the Great Other and the ice zombie invasion. One of three dragon riders. I don’t understand why people think he will control the Others and become the bad guy. The Others are trying to kill him and if he is replacing Bloodraven, why would Bloodraven’s cronies be attacking the heir to the weirwood throne? It doesn’t make sense. The Others are the bad guys.
Rickon- Lord of Winterfell when he comes of age.
Sansa- Lady of the Vale, will conspire to kill Littlefinger after she finds out that Petyr was the main reason Ned Stark lost his head. Most likely with Nestor and Bronze Yohn Royce. She will marry Harry the Heir after Sweet Robin is killed by Baelish. If not, she will possibly marries Aegon. The show wrote Aegon out, so I don’t know if this will pan out.
Arya- With her list of people to kill slowly dwindling, she will become a Faceless (wo)Man assassin and kill Ramsay Bolton who is currently married to fake Arya. Also, she might kill Cersei if the Iron Bank sends for the FM for a contract to get their debt.
Stannis- Goes out in a hail of gunfire stopping the Others, because it was the proper thing to do. As rightful king, he saves the realm but loses his life in the process.
Davos- Smuggles Rickon back to the North for the lords to rally around. Kills Lady Melissandre then retires to live the rest of his days with his wife and surviving sons, still worshipping his Seven Gods.
Jamie- Lord Commander of Jon Snow’s Kingsguard after completing the 180 degree villain to hero arc. Snow trusts Jamie after a successful mission of Brienne and Pod to find Sansa.
Tyrion- Lord of Casterly Rock. Becomes Dany’s trusted advisor and helps train the dragons. Later becomes one of Jon Snow’s closest friends. Remarries a whore.
Cersei- Loses in the trial by combat (Gravedigger kills Ser Robert Strong). Punished by High Sparrow to become one of the Silent Sisters. Or killed by Arya for not paying back the Iron Bank.
Tommen- Held captive by (ward of) Jon Snow to ensure Lannister cooperation.
Myrcella- Marries Prince Trystane and helps rally Dorne behind Dany when she realizes her uncle Tyrion is fighting for them.
The Hound- Is the Gravedigger who fights for the Faith in the trial by combat finally killing the Mountain who is reincarnated into Ser Robert Strong by Qyburn.
Margaery – wins her trial by combat. Loras defeats Lancel (who fights for the faith). Remains at court married to Tommen as a hostage for the Tyrells.
Loras- One of Jon Snow’s Kingsguard.
Sam- Becomes Lord Commander of the Night’s Watch.
Brienne- Delivers word to Lady Stoneheart and Jon Snow of Sansa living safe in the Vale. Returns to King’s Landing to become one of Jon Snow’s Kingsguard.
Theon- Dies helping Arya defeat Ramsay. Arya gives him the gift of mercy.
Victarion- Kills his brother Euron and goes mad with power. Dies trying to use the Dragon Binding horn.
Asha- Lady of the Iron Islands after she discovers Theon’s fate. Helps take down the Boltons.
Dany- Finally moves towards Westeros with her dragons and army to find that Aegon has been paving the way with the Golden Company. Her, Jon Snow and Bran make short work of the Others riding dragons.
Aegon- Lord of Dragonstone. Actually Dany’s uncle. No idea why this is a question. How could Varys know that Aegon would grow up with Targaryen features? He switched infant babies. Legit claim but Jon Snow’s blood unites the kingdom and he follows his older half-brother. How can he be fake? If Jon Snow can pull off a baby switch, I think Varys can. Jon Snow literally knows nothing and Varys is the master of whispers. Possibly marries Sansa.
Lady Stoneheart- Uses the Brotherhood Without Banners to eliminate the rest of the Freys. Gives Robb’s crown to Jon Snow. Is finally at rest when she finds out that 4 of her children are still alive. Makes me think it is a non-issue since the show is not using her.
Edmure- Lord of the Riverlands, continues to be married to Roslin Frey despite her blood ties to the Red Wedding. It’s assumed she had no knowledge of the plans and was also kept prisoner.
Varys- Whereabouts unknown. Manipulates events from the shadows.
Those are the characters that I feel are most important as of right now. Obviously my predictions will change if we ever get The Winds of Winter. I’m just posting them somewhere so I can say how right I was when the books end.
