The Latest Game Of Thrones Theory Is The Most Awful, But Believable One Yet
Warning: This post is dark and full of spoilers (from season eight, episode two).
If you're a Game of Thrones fan, you'll know that there are more theories about the series than there are characters (read: there are lots and lots of theories out there).
Some are a little far-fetched. Others, plausible. And then there are some that sound worryingly probable.
And it seems that the most recent murmurings on the Interwebs fall into that last category.
If you watched last week's episode, you would have seen your faves in Winterfell preparing for war (probs death) with a collection of scenes that weren't dissimilar to those in Titanic as everyone waited for the ship to sink.
One of the things we heard mentioned over and over during this last ep, was how Winterfell's crypt is the safest place to be. Tyrion, Sam and a whole bunch of women and children are set to hide out there as the war to end all wars rages above them.
According to the views of a lot of fans, it wouldn't be ridiculous to assume that the crypt might just be the WORST place to hide, because it's filled with dead Starks. And you all know what the Night King does to the dead -- he brings them back.
As Bustle shares, Reddit user ABeautifulMuddle has suggested that this idea is hinted at in the books with Jon Snow dreaming, "he saw that the vaults were opening, one after the other. As the dead kings came stumbling from their cold black graves, Jon had woken in pitch-dark, his heart hammering."
Could this mean the living Starks will have to kill their undead Stark family? Talk about gut-wrenching.
The theory, which isn't exactly ridiculous, is picking up traction online:
But we all know how GoT likes to surprise us... so who bloody knows where this season is leading.
