Though there are all kinds of different Game of Thrones theories out there, theres only one that was promised.
In the world ofGame of Thrones, we learn about the prophecy of The Prince That Was Promised. To keep it brief, thousands of years ago there was supposedly this hero who saved the world from darkness. The prophecy says that the hero will be reborn and may even come wielding a magical sword called Lightbringer to save the world once again.
Its about time, too. From the Season 7 promos, its clear the White Walkers are on their way, and theyre probably bringing a lot of crummy attitudes with them.
Its widely theorized that this Prince is actually Jon Snow (Kit Harington).But what does he think about all the chatter?
The King in the North has spoken … and he doesnt care.
When The Huffington Post asked Harington about the theory, he said:
I think you have to wait and see what happens this year, and if we find out anything more about Jon. I think Jon would hate the term The Prince That Was Promised. If someone turned to him and said, Youre The Prince That Was Promised, he just wouldnt pay much attention. Thats what I love about him, so I dont really care about it either. You know, I think thats whats great about him. Hes got very little ego on him.
So Harington doesnt care about being The Prince That Was Promised. Thats sooo something The Prince That Was Promised would say …
As for waiting to find out more about Jon, the evidence surrounding this theory is already there.
According to quotes from George R.R. Martins A Song of Ice and Fire novels the inspiration for Game of ThronesThe Prince That Was Promised is said to be born beneath a bleeding star.
In Season 6, we see young Ned Stark (Robert Aramayo) discover his sister Lyanna (Aisling Franciosi) dyingin the Tower of Joy after giving birth to Jon Snow. Stark leavesSer Arthur Daynes sword, Dawn, at the end of the bed. This sword is supposedly made from the heart of a fallen star and still has Daynes blood all over it, hence the bleeding star.
The camera definitely wants you to know its there.
If thats not enough, in the same season, Melisandre (Carice van Houten) outright tells Davos (Liam Cunningham) that Jon Snow is the one.
As Davos points out in the scene, Melisandres been wrong before.
You said the same thing about Stannis the Mannis! he says. (Were paraphrasing.)
Still, theres pretty much Snow doubt about it. Harington told us that Season 7 will break boundaries.We doubt its going to break promises.
Jon Snow is hair to save us all!
Game of Thrones Season 7 premieres July 16.
