GoT theories - overview
This is a list of theories about the next and final season of Game of Thrones. While the premiere of season 8 lies at least one year (possibly more) in the future, there is already a lot of activity in the GoT community, even though we all have our personal *Jon Snow* in us, because we know nothing.
Theories are forged, discussing the fate of the remaining main cast and the possible outcome of the two major wars which have yet to be fought. Some of them are more believable and plausible than others, but most open up interesting perspectives on the show's final season.

Jaime Lannister is one of the most interesting characters in Game of Thrones. This is mainly, because he has evolved such a lot.
After he parted ways with his lover-sister at the end of season 7, he is now on his way towards the north. This opens a lot of potential for speculations and theories.
A theory that gained new momentum during season 7 is this older theory about Brandon Stark and the Night King.
Understanding it can be a bit difficult though, since it centers around time loops or temporal paradoxes, a scenario more popular in science fiction than fantasy. Nevertheless, fascinating stuff.
Some theories about Jon who is now officially no longer a Snow, but a Targaryen.
So, obviously, he is one of the most represented characters in theories, because he will certainly play a major role in the eight and final season and we can assume, he will also be a main protagonist in the show’s finale.
We all know by now what the R+L=J theory states. But where did it come from?
People may think this theory developed during seasons 5 and 6 of the show, but in reality, it is much, much older.

Some theories about Tyrion Lannister who may or may not play an important role in the final season..
Quite a lot of speculations center on Tyrion, who always was one of the deepest and most interesting characters in the series. Neither exceptionally good nor evil, he is seen by many as a selfish and in most cases not very loyal person. He is also an excellent politician and a cunning strategist and we know he drinks and knows things.
This is a popular theory, claiming that Jon is indeed the Prince that was promised.
It’s an easy-to-support theory, because it is based on relatively solid foundations and this quite plausible. It is not without flaws though, but since it is based on a legend, some flaws are to be expected.
