Theories. Theories. Theories. If there is one thing that Game of Thrones fans take great pride in, it’s crafting the most bizarre, jaw-dropping theories. Some of which turn out to be spot on. R+L=J, anyone? And that’s all that’s really left to do since HBO gave the heartbreaking announcement that Game of Thrones Season 8 won’t premiere until 2019.

It’s time we painstakingly analyze every small, minute detail available to us. That means scouring the web for clues in leaked footage or in previous episodes.
