There's no other way to say this, other than to be as clear as we can be:
Do not scroll down any further if you do not want to be spoiled about the way Game of Thrones concludes.
We mean it. And we love page views here at The Hollywood Gossip, so we'd never say this unless it was true and urgent and necessary.
Earlier this week, however, a lengthy post on the r/gottheories subreddit was quickly banned by moderators “due to multiple reports that it is likely from a leak.”
Still, however, this banning took place long after plenty of readers had stumbled upon the theory -- which does sound like far more than a theory.
At the very least, this sounds like a plausible way for the series to end.
Can we guarantee it? No.
But you should stop reading right now if you do not want to read through a bunch of seemingly legitimate Game of Thrones spoilers.
Okay? Got it? You've been warned. Here we go...
Remember What Emilia Clarke Said on Jimmy Kimmel Live?
"Find the biggest TV you can," said the actress behind the Mother of Dragons, telling the host Episode 5 is even more "insane" than any that aired before it.
And Now Maybe We Know Why
According to this Reddit post, Arya, the Hound, and Jaime Lannister all infiltrate King’s Landing through the sewers in Episode 5 -- and Jaime is imprisoned in the Red Keep.
At Dragonstone, meanwhile, Daenerys realizes that Varys plans to betray her.
So Dany puts Varys and Tyrion on trial, leading to Varys being burned alive ... while Tyrion is spared.
Sansa vs. Dany
Dany also discovers that it was Sansa who revealed Jon’s true identity, setting up their conflict on the series finale.
To the Possible Rescue
During the Battle of King’s Landing, Yara Greyjoy’s fleet joins in the fight.
See Ya, Evil Loser!
Along with Dany on Drogon, Team Supposed Good Guys are able to surprise and kill Euron.
Panic Sets On
At this point, desperate and afraid, Cersei goes ahead and frees Jaime, retreating into the queen’s chambers with him and the Mountain.
Can We Join You?
As soon as Euron is gone, the Golden Company breaks contract -- which does make sense because the show has told us they often choose the winning sides based what is a good investments.
Then $hit Gets CRAZY
Meanwhile, characters such as Jon, Grey Worm, and Davos rush through King’s Landing to the castle, prompting Qyburn to try and use wildfire to burn them all.
From here, the deaths come fast and furiously.
Jaime stabs Cersei in the stomach to kill her, echoing Talisa Stark’s murder at the Red Wedding... only to pull off his face to reveal it was Arya.
The Hound also bursts in to fight the Mountain, thus fulfilling Cleganebowl and murdering his brother.
We All Go a Little Mad Sometimes
Daenerys then becomes the true “Mad Queen” and burns down hundreds of civilians and soldiers, along with the Red Keep.
Together Forever... Sort Of
The Hound overcomes his fear of fire to save a wounded Arya, presumably dying in the process. Afterwards, everyone is then convinced Daenerys is unfit to rule.
Cut to the Finale...
... and Dany accusing Bran, Samwell and Sansa of treason, forcing Jon Snow to reluctantly proclaim himself Aegon Targaryen and the true heir to the throne.
A Tough Decision
Jon is then allegedly forced to kill Dany and Drogon himself ... before relinquishing the throne to characters such Sansa, Tyrion, Gendry, etc. It's unclear what they do with the idea of a monarchy in the Seven Kingdoms.
Jon reunites with Ghost at the Wall (!!!!!!!) while Bran uses magic to rebuild the hole in the Wall.
So, It's a Happy Ending?
Not exactly. These spoilers conclude by saying Jon searches for Tormund even further north, only to find dismembered Wildling bodies arranged in the White Walker spiral.
But you can check out the very real trailer for this Sunday's episode above!
