Ugh, we think we’re gonna be sick… (And it’s not because we stayed up all night drinking wine like Tyrion.)
A new and crazy-popular Game of Thrones theory surfaced on Reddit last week, and it’s making it very hard for us to do anything but think about how we’re going to bawl our eyes out after the final episode.
The theory, posted by Reddit user nosefouratoo, claims that we’ve all been distracted by the Night King and the big battle of Winterfell so much, that we forgot what’s truly at stake. Case in point: The Night King versus Cersei, or the Night King versus the Starks—or just the Night King versus the living in general—is not the main focus of the story of Game of Thrones. Instead, they’re all just red herrings for the true outcome of the series.
The final season is building up to culminate in a giant battle between two of our fave characters: Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryen. (Nooooooooo!)
