[pmc=related] After eight seasons, “Game of Thrones” fans will finally see if their long-held theories will pay off. Dozens of important characters and a complex plot have made diehard viewers try to foresee plot twists for years. With the original R+L=J theory confirmed, meaning that Rhaegar Targaryen and Lyanna Stark were the real parents of Jon Snow, fan speculations have ramped up for the final season.

Here are a few theories that even the grand maesters can’t predict.

Tywin - Lannister - Fan - Son - Tyrion

Tywin Lannister was never a fan of his son Tyrion, who killed his mother in childbirth, and frequently called him, “No son of mine.” Eagle-eyed “A Song of Ice and Fire” readers noticed suggestions that the Mad King Aerys II Targaryen was actually Tyrion’s father, which would make him a brother to Daenerys and Rhaegar, and the symbolic third head of the Targaryen dragon sigil.

Threes are important to the Targaryens––Daenerys and King Aegon had three dragons, and Dany heard a prophecy in the books saying, “The dragon has three heads.” However, it seems more likely in the show that Jon Snow is the only secret Targaryen.

Kingslayer - Queenslayer

The Kingslayer might end up a Queenslayer.

Maggy the Frog, the witch from Season Five who prophesied that all of Cersei’s kids would die, also predicted in the books that she would die at the hands of her little brother (her “valonqar”). With Cersei a few seconds older than her twin brother Jaime, that leaves him and Tyrion as her potential killers. As we saw in the season eight premiere, Jaime left King’s Landing to aid the Winterfell forces against the white walkers, surely angering his sister. The Hound and the Mountain may not be the only siblings who battle to the death this season.
