Spoilers are coming!
Throughout Game of Thrones’ eight seasons, there have been some truly heinous fan theories. The Night King being someone other than Westeros’s Grim Reaper? Never proven. Khal Drogo coming back to life? Still waiting. Bran Stark actually coming in clutch for once? LOL, don’t hold your breath.
Now, one Reddit user has a new fan theory that may derail the entire show, and it involves none other than Sansa Stark. So, this user must’ve been binge-watching the whole series leading up to the finale because they shared a frame of the title sequence from all the way back in season 1 that will have you convinced they’re on to something. As all fans know, the GoT intros usually have hidden meanings. The bit we’re talking about today, though, has Maisie Williams, Sophie Turner, and Richard Madden’s names next to house sigils. Maisie (Arya Stark) and Richard (Robb Stark) both have the Stark sigils next to their names, for obvious reasons. BUT! If you look at Sophie’s name, there’s a dragon next to it, which this user thinks could mean she’s secretly a Targaryen.
If Sansa were a Targaryen, that could definitely boost her influence and maybe even give her more of a claim to the Iron Throne. Even though Daenerys Targaryen and Jon Snow are both Targaryens, are older than Sansa, and would probably edge her out in the “claim” game, she’d still have a good shot at it. Plus, the people in the North already love her more than Dany and aren’t mad at her for teaming up with the Free Folk (ahem, Jon), so they may be more willing to accept her as the queen of everything. TBD on what the people of King’s Landing would think.
This theory hasn’t been addressed at all throughout the show’s run, so it’s hard to believe the showrunners would ever write this in for the last two episodes. Although, they did put a Starbucks cup in the last episode, so anything is possible at this point.
But some other Reddit users also said HBO let the cast pick their favorite houses at the start of the show, which would explain why the dragon is next to Sophie’s name. And if you look at season 8’s title sequence, the sigil next to her name is for House Stark. Basically, you can consider this myth/theory busted.
Regardless of her lineage, Sansa would still make the best ruler in all of Westeros. Send tweet!
