Game of Thrones season 8: Are we going to find out that the Stark are the bad guys in history?
A few months before the release of Season 7 of Game of Thrones, a crazy theory explains that Jon Snow, Arya Stark and others might actually be the big bad guys in history …
And if … Yes, this is the moment speculation and when it was announced to you that Sophie Turner had almost confirmed its presence in season 8 of Game of Thrones , it is now to the intrigues of the whole saga that We’re going to be interested. As usual, the theory that fascinates us comes from Reddit and talks about the “good” and “bad” in history, especially the Stark and the Targary. It is often said that history is written by the winners and a surfer in particular wondered if this is not what happened in Game of Thrones . According to him, Jon Snow and the Stark would win the war and would tell the story, History by Samwell Tarly by modifying the facts a little to justify their accession to the Throne. In order to visualize all this, the Reddit member imagines Sam writing the story – the series and the books – with Jon Snow or Sansa Stark over his shoulder, embellishing the facts, Of the style “good idea to have invented a Targaryen origin, Ned slept so much with everyone that it was necessary to invent something to restore his honor and make me more legitimate.”
This would mean that those who eventually win the war would try to justify themselves with a positive narrative – a technique widely used in history – and that many major events would otherwise have unfolded. One can imagine for example that Eddard Stark was really a traitor who tried to take the Throne to Joffrey and that it is indeed the Stark who poisoned him by pointing the Tyrell with his finger . The internet user also explains that Maester Pycelle often uses this technique and that he often embellishes the facts to make the Lannister pass for heroes and the Stark for traitors. Obviously this theory is difficult to accept since it makes our darlings pass for tyrants, and several elements make that ” It will probably not be true. But it must be confessed that it corresponds quite to the “bitter-sweet” end that George RR Martin promised and that this would be a famous twist.
Yet like all theories, this one has some flaws. The first is the most obvious: making us believe that Jon Snow, Arya Stark, Ned Stark and the others were the heroes of the story while they are actually worth no better than Cersei Lannister and Company . Besides, it would mean, since Sam is also part of the story, that someone must also write his story and that it would be an even more complex mise en abyme. Finally, in spite of a certain attractive aspect due to its originality, this theory would somewhat end up in the mode “all this was only a dream” that many series, films and books have already used and which are often very disappointing For the fans. We admit that we would have the ” Impression of being fooled and that one is not sure to appreciate such an end … Anyway it remains a theory and there is very little chance for it to prove true . While waiting to learn a little more about the end of the series, find out in which series the actor Iwan Rheon will play after Game of Thrones ! And you, what do you think of this theory?
