Jack Gleeson may no longer be on Game Of Thrones, but he’s got a pretty good theory about how the HBO hit will end.
Over the weekend, the Irish-born actor (best known for playing the sociopathic King Joffrey Baratheon) hit up NYC Comic-Con and dished about what he thinks will happen during the final episodes of GOT.
What’s crazy about this pretty thoughtful theory is that Jack left the show back in season four — oh, and doesn’t actually watch the cable drama either. In regards to his departure from GOT, Gleeson shared:
“My dad always said you should never be the last to leave a party. Then everyone is sleepy and cranky, and it’s awful. You should leave late but not too late so that the energy is still there. I feel like I left at the right time.”
Fair, fair. And while his initial excuse for not watching was that he didn’t enjoy watching himself on screen, nowadays the 24-year-old feels like he has simply fallen too far behind. He continued:
“There’s too much to catch up on. I haven’t a clue what’s going on there. It’s crazy. In my mind, all these characters are still alive, and everyone’s in this place, and those people are in that place, and they have these motivations and now everything has been screwed around so much. It’s a completely different show.
Maybe I should get into it. I hear it’s good. It always wins Emmys. I hear the acting is really good in it. Maybe I should give it a shot.”
HIGHlarious! Although Jack may be out of touch with what’s going on in Westeros, he is listening to his fans who tipped him off on the profound hypothesis. So what’s this popular theory? Well, Jack explained:
“This isn’t a spoiler, because I know zero about the show and I literally know nothing about what will happen. [A fan] came up with this theory that they told me… someone’s going to melt down the Iron Throne because it has the Valyrian steel that will overcome the White Walkers. I think that’s kind of a cool idea the monarchy is literally dissolved.”
What do YOU think of this theory? Do believe Jack and so many others have figured out the ending??
