This Wild ‘Game Of Thrones’ Theory Has Everybody Talking. Could It Be True?

A wild “Game of Thrones” theory about the Night King and Jon Snow is generating a ton of attention online.

As I usually do, I was surfing the web when I stumbled across the theory over at BroBible, and it is sure to get you thinking. Reddit user AnghkoR speculated that the only way to kill the Night King was for Snow to sacrifice himself in order to get stability over the white walkers. They wrote:

The only way to “defeat” him is that (and this was just one possible way this might happen) someone has to “pull out” the dragonglass in his chest which was used to create him in the first place. By doing this the Night King would “die”, but unlike what happens when someone kills a “normal” white walker, none of the creatures the Night king “created” or turned would die. Instead they would lose the mind controlling effect the Night King has on them and they would start doing whatever the fuck they want, i.e. rampaging around the country.

To prevent this scenario from happening someone has to take the place of the Night King by stabbing himself with the previously extracted dragonglass-dagger. By doing this the person (in our mind Jon Snow) would sacrifice himself for the greater good, gaining control over all of the wights and walkers. He then would lead them back over the wall back into the north where they would stay like it has been before since the last long night (like a beast in a cage).

I’ll be honest here. I didn’t see this as a possibility at all, but I’m here for it now. What would be more inline with who Jon Snow is than sacrificing himself in order to save the entire kingdom? Nothing is more Snow-esque than that. (RELATED: ‘GAME OF THRONES’ STAR HAS SOME COMMENTS THAT WILL MAKE FANS VERY HYPED [VIDEO])

But Snow shoving dragonglass into his chest might throw a massive wrench into all of our hopes that he ends up with Daenerys at the conclusion of the epic series. We didn’t spend seven seasons getting here so that they wouldn’t end up together, right? I mean, that sex scene between them was arguably the most charged moment of the entire series. I’m just not sure I can live in a “Game of Thrones” world where they don’t end up riding off into the sunset together, even if I recognize how unlikely that is.

On the other hand, sacrificing his love life and an opportunity to rule with Daeynerys to save everybody else is so classic Jon Snow that it hurts. Look, I’m convincing myself this outcome is possible with every word I type.

I think we can all agree that we mostly just really need season eight to start ASAP. It’s been way too long since we got new episodes, and everybody is dying to know how one of the greatest stories ever told will end. It’s scheduled to be released at some point in 2019, and that day can’t get here soon enough. Let’s get it done and find out what Snow’s fate will be.
