A Short Set of Season 7 of Game of Thrones Theories

SPOILERS AHEAD… Don’t read this theory until you’re all caught up…

Some brief theories about what I think we’ll see in Season 7:

One thing I think will happen for sure: One of Daenerys’ dragons is going to be killed, and the Night King will raise that thing for his own army. And the Wall? If that falls to a dragon’s breath, that’s a whole lot of water that’ll suddenly flood everything in sight.

Sometime… maybe we’ll have to wait until Season 8… Jaime is going to try to kill Cersei. Whether or not he succeeds or not is a different question. I really don’t see either of them surviving until the end.

Who do I think will sit on the Iron Throne at the end? Tyrion.

What do I hope we don’t see? An Undead Hodor. That would be terrible.

How LOST Will End

As the time for series finale gets closer, people have asked me how I think LOST will end. I’ve never had any insider information for any of this, so if you’re looking for definitive answers, hang out around the ABC studios, because that’s the only place that has them right now.

And even they won’t have the definitive answers. The series show runners, Damon Lindelof and Carlon Cuse have already stated that there’s going to be a lot of theorizing about what the end of LOST means, in typical LOST fashion. They’re even going so far as to go into a “blackout” phase when the show ends, and won’t be giving any interviews to try and “explain” things.

This all points to questions that won’t be answered at the end of the series. My hope is that they won’t be the BIG questions; what fans really want answers to are what happen to the main characters. If they don’t answer that, I think people will be disappointed.

Enough of that.

What do I think is going to happen? If you’re a longtime reader of this blog, you’ll know I’ve thrown a lot of theories out there. Some of them have stuck, and some haven’t. At one point I was pretty convinced that the smoke monster was a cloud of nanobots. We all know now that it’s not, and it was a decent theory at the time, but….

What I’m saying is, take the following with a grain of salt. We’ll see how close I was when the series ends.

The Sideways Timeline.

I believe that what the writers have been doing this season is showing the aftermath of the events in the “real” timeline we’ve been following since the beginning of the series. In other words, they knew that people would want to know what happened to the characters after the show ended, and that’s what we’ve been seeing for this entire season in the sideways timeline.

I think the “resolution”, if you can call it that, is that all of the characters who were on the island will come to realize they did have another life on the island, and the events that took place there have resulted in the timeline they’re in now. Whatever happens in the “real” timeline from here on out will be remembered by the people in the “sideways” timeline, and they’re just going to have to live with it, because that’s the life they will have from now on.

The one thing (as of this writing) that supports this theory is that Desmond has a strangely calm “air” about him on the island. He appears to realize that the events on the island are going to unfold in a certain way… and that’s just the way it is. I believe he realizes that he realizes that no matter what happens, the true destiny of people on the island will be in the “sideways” timeline.

Eloise’s reaction in the “sideways” timeline supports this as well. She called what he was doing a “violation”. A violation of what?

I’m guessing that it’s a violation of an agreement that someone makes in the “real” timeline. That agreement is likely to be something like: You have a choice. You can continue in this timeline and let things play out as they are (which is likely to be bad) or you can make a sacrifice, and give everyone in the “sideways” timeline a new life.

I’m just throwing that out there. What the sacrifice is, I have no idea. It could be Desmond giving up his life on the island, it could be someone volunteering to take over as the Man in Black to keep his power under control, it could be about anything.

It’s just an idea.

LOST – Dr. Linus – Theories and Observations

Spoilers ahead

Some thoughts about tonight’s LOST – Dr. Linus:

Dharma did exist on the island, at least long enough for Ben and his father to be there for a while, and for them to leave.

It was great seeing Alex again.

Ben sure digs a nice neat burial plot.

Richard confirmed he was on the Black Rock before.

Somehow, Illana knows all about the candidates. She says there are six, which I presume are Sun, Jin, Hurley, Jack, Kate and Sawyer. I think there might actually be a seventh, but more on that later.

So we find out that that Jacob’s touch make it impossible for the person who was touched to die by their own hand, and I would say from what the young boy who appeared to Locke a few episodes ago, Locke can’t kill them either. He tried to get Ben to kill Illana, because he can’t.

Ah, and all the theories about Widmore being the one that Jacob was referring to when he said someone was coming to the island, were right. Seems like he’s the one that will get the Man in Black off the island.

Now, remember all those people that Jacob touched? Think you know everyone? Hurley, Kate, Sawyer, Jin, Sun, Sayid, Jack, Locke….and Ben. Yep, Ben. I think I mentioned this in an earlier post. Anyway, it certainly means a lot more now.

In fact, it could very well be that Ben might end up being the most important person on the island. What if HE was the person that took over for Jacob? He devoted his entire life to the island. Who better to keep it safe, and to be there to keep the Man in Black in check?

I’m just going to throw this out – What if the only way the Man in Black can leave the island is to transfer his powers to someone else? Who would that be? My guess is Widmore. He and Ben might be the two new replacements for MiB and Jacob.

Finally, I’m glad Ben survived. He’s a great character.
