New theory that popped up tonight:

We know that the Mad King stored a bunch of wildfire underneath King's Landing and was threatening to "burn them all" that's why Jaime had to kill him. In the present, the city faces a potential siege from White Walkers, against which those stores of wildfire could be very useful.

Perhaps the Mad King's "madness" was a result of him being periodically warged into by 3ER. 3ER's brain gets a little mushed from the time traveling. At the time Robert's rebellion is at the city walls, 3ER (inside Aerys) mistakenly thinks that he's using the wildfire to defend the city by killing the walkers.

Suiciding King's Landing to kill all the Walkers would actually be an understandable strategy if it meant the end of the war.

Another theory from tonight:

The burning symbol at the end is obviously important to NK. It's the same symbol we saw the dead wildling bodies in S1E1. And it's also the symbol we see when we get the overhead shot of the Isle of Faces where NK was created.

Perhaps that island is the NK's destination. But since it's an island, the NK can not get there until the Long Winter where the lake is frozen over (so he can walk since he can't swim).

I managed to miss these theories somehow then. I've read the books and been over the discussion boards. If they are new to me, then they must be new to other JSPers who are more causal fans than me.

I mean I am pretty sure the mad King theory popped up basically everywhere the second the hodor episode aired.

The children of the forest and the isle of faces has also been the most prominent "wtf does the NK want" theory since forever.

I am not throwing shade if you want to discuss the theories, but don't pretend you just thought of them.

theory on the final scene of the show:

Sam is alone late at night, writing down the story of everything that happened in the kingdom (which is the maester's job)

He takes off his necklace (master's chain) ... and turns into GRRM

Can someone explain how Tormund and the watch are still alive? Did the Night King and his army not go past the wall after they tore it down? Why would they spare all of those people. And then in the trailer for next episode it shows Tormund made it all the way back to Jon. Again... how is that possible? The Night King's army should be between the wall and Winterfell at this point, so how would Tormund and the watch get back to Winterfell without encountering the army of the dead?
