It is perhaps the most important question in the fandom, how will Game of Thrones end? Instead of coming together will Jon and Dany be enemies in the end?
Who’s the main character on Game of Thrones? In Season 1 we would have said Ned Stark, but now, it’s not clear. Well, the best argument now is that there are two. The book series is titled A Song of Ice and Fire, and as you probably realized long ago, we have two characters who match those descriptions: Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryen.
Essentially it seems the series will, at some point, become a clash of ice and fire, and who better to embody those two elements than the man who has “Snow” as his name and the mother of dragons?
Many theories have it that Jon and Dany will fight together in the end, maybe even get together, because wouldn’t that be nice and wonderful? (Except that she’s probably his aunt. But hey! Targaryens are into incest.) That isn’t exactly George R.R. Martin’s style though, unless they were both brutally murdered at their own wedding.
So there’s another theory, one that states that Game of Thrones will end with a struggle between these two popular characters, which makes sense on paper, but have you actually looked closely at the theory? We go in depth into the Jon vs Dany theory, the evidence for and against it and make our predictions as to how it will go down.
Basically the story boils down to a fight between two sides: R’hllor (Melisandre’s Lord of Light) and the Others (the White Walkers). We’ve seen both sides in action and let’s face it, neither seems like the good guy. Honestly which side do you choose? The White Walkers slaughter humans in droves, while Melisandre uses the Lord of Light to birth a demon baby that kills people, and both of them sacrifice children.
So this theory is made up of a couple of different fan theories brought together, and built on the idea that the White Walkers could be the good guys. Basically, that the White Walkers only kill people because the people of Westeros are violating an ancient pact, and wish to bring balance to Westeros. (Remember the seasons are out of balance, summers can last a decade and winters a lifetime, and Martin has said that will be solved by series end.)
If the White Walkers are good, we are also given to assume that the reincarnation of Azor Ahai (who at this point we believe to be the savior who will end the reign of the White Walkers and the Second Long Night) isn’t born because the White Walkers are waking up again. The White Walkers wake up because the reincarnation of Azor Ahain is born and they need to counter it. Also, the Wall was built not as a defense for the realms of men against the White Walkers but was built by the White Walkers as a weapon, for hidden within the Wall is a fully formed dragon, an Ice Dragon.
In this theory, Dany is the reincarnation of Azor Ahai, but like her father the Mad King, she is going insane. The Mad King burned people alive and was going to burn King’s Landing to the ground with wildfire until Jamie Lannister put a sword through his back and Dany is on the same path. She will bring destruction and death to Westeros and the only thing that can stop her are the White Walkers.
This theory postulates that R+L=J is correct, and Jon Snow is the son of Lyanna Stark and Rhaegar Targaryen making Jon, you guessed it, a Targaryen. It also says Jon will lead the White Walkers against Dany and her dragons in the final battle. The Horn of Winter will be blown and the Ice Dragon hidden in the Wall will wake up and aid the Walkers in the battle. Jon will defeat Azor Ahai, the champion of R’hllor, Daenerys Targaryen and bring balance to the world by wiping out most of mankind. All of this will lead to the destruction of King’s Landing which Dany saw in her vision in Season 2.
