For the crazy television show cultural movement that is Game of Thrones we have been in uncharted waters for quite a while now, with the show surpassing George R.R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire books last season in a few places and this season is just entirely new. That means that fan theories have moved beyond the old faithfuls (R + L = J) and now people are speculating about anything and everything that could go down in the future. Now that we know more about Bran’s visions and what his role in Westeros sort of is, the theories about his visions and ability to impact both the past and present have made those visions incredibly important for fan theories.
The latest in fan theories comes from BuzzFeed and is centered around Cersei’s self-destructive behavior and how she can’t seem to shake a run-in with a fortune teller from her youth. The theory is built around this YouTube video from earlier this year that posits that Cersei will become “The Mad Queen” and attempt to burn King’s Landing to the ground.
