When it comes to conspiracy theories, Game of Thrones has a seemingly endless supply of twists and turns that leave fans breathless with excitement and dread. [Warning: Spoilers Ahead!]
With Episode 4 being especially game-changing (the Starks are in Winterfell! Bae-nerys finally fried people!), new theories are running rampant on the Internet. According to Elle writer, Matt Miller, one of the newest theories has to do with who will ultimately betray Daenerys Targaryen.
For those who have not read the books, there is a prophecy stating that Daenerys will be betrayed three times — for blood, gold and love. Daenerys in the show has been betrayed two times already: Mirri Maz Duur (blood) and Ser Jorah (gold). This leaves betrayal for love, and the top two suspects are Tyrion Lannister and, surprisingly, Missandei.
For Tyrion, it has to do with brotherly love for Jaime Lannister, who he last sees almost get scorched by Drogon. Seeing as the episode ends with no one knowing for sure whether Jaime died or not, there is the possibility, according to Miller, that Jaime will be captured by Daenerys’ army and held prisoner. Tyrion might end up freeing his brother out of love and debt, since Jaime freed Tyrion when he was imprisoned at the Red Keep for Joffrey’s death.
Less convincing but still intriguing, Missandei might betray Daenerys out of her love for Greyworm, who is trapped at Casterley Rock right now, or out of love for something else (which seems very unlikely considering how she stood up to Davos and John Snow when asked if she would abandon her Queen).
Either way, Khaleesi better watch her back.
