    "I love to play the video games and this one is about war so there is much action to be had. The name of it is the Total War: Arena and it is soo good! You can even play it for free, online with other people that are also online. It is a war simulation game and boy is it a fun one, you should play too!"

      Jon Snow is a Legitimate Targaryen

      R+L=J is the now confirmed theory that Jon Snow is the son of Rhaegar Targaryen and Lyanna Stark. What the fifth episode of Game of Thrones seventh season, "Eastwatch", now points at is that he is not only the product of this union but is actually legitimate. This is revealed when Gilly stumbles upon the information that Rhaegar had his previous marriage to Elia Martell annulled and officially married someone else in a secret ceremony in Dorne. Of course, this leads to believe that is was Lyanna who he married before Jon was born, making him the rightful heir to the Seven Kingdoms.

      Bran is the Night King

      This Game of Thrones fan theory states that Bran is the Night King. This would have happened when the Children of the Forest pierced a man's heart with dragonglass creating the first White Walker. If this is true, Bran would have been warging into this man, and when the dragonglass pierced his heart, he became stuck in that body, becoming the Night King himself.

      Tyrion is a Targaryen

      This Game of Thrones fan theory holds that Tyrion is the illegitimate son of Aerys “The Mad King” Targaryen who was infatuated with Joanna Lannister (Tywin's wife) and used to take unwanted liberties with her. The evidence that supports this theory is that Tywin hates Tyrion and tells him he is not his son. In the books, Tyrion also has light blond hair and different colored eyes, always dreams with dragons and, in the series, when he finally meets them, is able to touch them.

      Jamie Lannister is Azor Ahai

      Azor Ahai was a warrior who fought to end the Long Night. Also called the Prince That Was Promised, he possessed a flaming sword called Lightbringer that he forged by sacrificing his wife Nissa Nissa. This Game of Thrones fan theory argues that Jamie Lannister might be Azor Ahai reborn, with his near death experience in the lake being his rebirth amidst smoke and salt. He could also be the one who murders his sister, fulfilling that part of the prophecy. Aditionally, Reddit user, byrd82, states that Valyrian words for gold and hand are aeksion and ondos, while Valyrian words for lord and light are aeksio and onos. This could have led to a mistranslation and the erroneous creation of a religion, with the prophecy actually saying that the true savior is the “Gold Hand”.

      Bran makes Aerys Targaryen go mad

      This Game of Thrones fan theory states that Bran Stark is the one who causes Aerys Targaryen to become The Mad King. This happens when he realizes that others can hear him during his visions from the past, but doesn't understand that they cannot fully understand him. He attempts to reason with Aerys, but the King only hears whispers and is eventually driven mad by it.

      "Bran has already messed with the mind of one major character by traveling in the past (Hodor), so it would actually be plausible that he is the cause of the Mad King going crazy. I personally think it's due to Targaryen inbreeding, but Bran hasn't been getting much screen time lately and things are ramping up. Bran is still getting the hang of things, and I could see him making the mistake of attempting to communicate more with Aerys in the past and causing him to lose his mind."

He seems to be the main hero acting as a catalyst to save the world by currently attempting to bring people together, and birthing dragons from stone could be seen as a metaphor for dragon's glass, I think his role is already well established."
