This past Sunday’s Game of Thrones was a doozy, to say the least. Dany fulfilled all those Mad Queen theories by literally burning down King’s Landing. Cersei and Jaime died as a result (or so we think). I’m still reeling from it, TBH.
And get this: There’s a theory currently floating around Reddit positing that Tyrion, Dany’s trusted aide, knew everything that was going to happen. How, you ask? Because Bran Stark told him.
“Bran told him in season eight, episode two off screen, when Tyrion sat down with him,” Reddit user AegonStarkgaryen writes. “Bran can see glimpses of the future. He has had visions of the future in the first few minutes of season six, episode six, just before he and Meera meet Benjen.”
The user continues, “Tyrion tries desperately to change the course of action he knows is likely to happen, which Bran told him about already. He was adamant about two things: the bells ringing mean surrender (please accept the surrender) and the city falling by the next day, even though the odds were quite evened, as Jaime said.”
But how do we know Tyrion actually had information? Well, pay close attention to a few things he’s said directly to some key players on Game of Thrones. As AegonStarkgaryen points out:
“She’s going to die. Unless you convince her to change her course of action.” — Tyrion to Jaime
“The city will fall by tomorrow.” — Tyrion to Jaime
“Escape. The two of you, together.” — Tyrion to Jaime
“Please, if you hear them ringing the bells, call off the attack.” — Tyrion to Dany and Greyworm
“If you hear the bells, they’ve surrended. Call off your men.” — Tyrion to Jon and Greyworm
All of these quotes hint that Tyrion knew something was brewing and tried to warn everyone about it. Bran’s powers are mysterious and not well-defined, so it’s more than plausible he was the one to give Tyrion the tea.
Wild, right? This is definitely something to chew on going into GoT‘s series finale on Sunday.
