The last season of Game of Thrones is pretty far away and one way fans can still go crazy over the show are the fan theories. The show is perhaps the most watched show in the world right now and with such a huge fanbase, there’s always news of new fan theories. And it looks like there’s a new fan theory for the fans to talk about.
The Justin Thomas Show has posted a video on youtube that says the Home of House Stark, Winterfell is the real Lightbringer. For those who don’t know, Lightbringer is the weapon that is said to help in defeating the army of the dead. Watch the video for yourself.
If you didn’t watch the video, fear not. We’ve got you covered. The video talks about the history of Azor Ahai and how he used his flaming sword, Lightbringer to defeat the old school white walkers. But that’s not all that the video talks about. For those who have not read A Song Of Ice And Fire, the back story of Lightbringer’s origin is an interesting one.
The book says that Azor Ahai labored for thirty days and thirty nights until the sword was made. But when he went to temper it in water, the sword broke. Next he took fifty days and fifty nights to make the sword, and to temper it this time, he drove the sword through a lion’s heart but the sword broke again. The third time, he worked for a hundred days and nights and made his best sword. This time, he drove the sword through his wife Nissa Nissa’s breast, combining her soul with the sword and thus creating the Lightbringer.
The idea that Winterfell is Lightbringer is an interesting one, and The Justin Thomas Show has evidence to support his theory. The theory involves Bran the Builder, the man who built Winterfell, The Wall, The High Tower of Oldtown and Storm’s End. According to the theory, the name of each structure indicates their function – Hightower is literally a hightower, Wall is literally a wall, The Storm’s end stops the storm in bad weather and lastly, Winterfell is where winter fell. Winterfell is where the army of the dead were defeated the last time they tried to kill everyone.
The theory isn’t complete yet. The theory then goes on to tell that just like Lightbringer broke twice, Winterfell has also been broken twice. First time was when Theon Greyjoy took over the castle. Iron Island represents water. The second time was when Bolton’s were in control of Winterfell, who were told to do so by the Lannisters. Lannisters represent the Lion.
For the third time, we have to go to another popular fan theory – Jon Snow Or Daenerys Targaryen, either one of them is Azor Ahai reborn and that one would kill the other to save everyone. We already know that there’s going to be a major battle in front of the gates of the Winterfell, from the set photos revealed last week. Could it actually be that Winterfell is the real Lightbringer. Tell us what you think of this interesting fan theory in the comments below.
