Ranking The Major "Game Of Thrones" Fan Theories, From Least To Most Likely

Get the Full StoryTyrion Lannister is NOT a time-traveling fetus.

Game of Thrones is back for Season 7, and people have a LOT of theories.


Tyrion is a time-traveling fetus

The theory: Tyrion is actually the son of Daenerys and Khal Drogo, and was transported back in time by the Dothraki witch, Mirri Maz Duur, and delivered by Joanna Lannister. Tyrion will go on to marry Daenerys — his own mother — in a parallel to the Greek tragedy of Oedipus.

Andy: Listen, I’m not gonna sit here and pretend that this theory is even remotely close to likely. But I have to commend the Redditor who came up with it, because it’s not only creative but kind of ironclad in its own twisted logic. 0 10

Jenna: This is definitely the most creative Game of Thrones theory I've ever read. But lol, no. 0 10

Ned Stark is alive and a Faceless Man died in his place

The theory: When Ned Stark was executed, it was actually a Faceless Man disguised as him perhaps even Syrio Forel who died. The real Ned Stark escaped and has been waiting for the right time to return.

Andy: Oh, hell no. First off, the show seems to have set up the rule that Faceless Men can only disguise themselves as people who have died and had their bodies “prepared” though it’s true that Arya saw her face on Jaqen H’ghar’s face right before she went blind . Second, why would Ned be hiding out while his wife and children started dying one by one? 0 10

Jenna: There is no way Ned Stark would stay in hiding through the War of the Five Kings and beyond. It's not his way. Plus there's no real evidence to support this theory and, as Andy points out, there's some evidence against it. 0 10

Likelihood: 0 10
