This 'Game Of Thrones' Fan Theory About Jorah Could Change Everything If True

It's only a few days until the next Game of Thrones is out, so I'm guessing you've probably already seen the latest episode - that is episode one of season seven - but if you don't want the show ruining, then I'm warning you right now: DO NOT READ AHEAD.

Instead, maybe enjoy this article about A Dad's Hilarious Nando's Sauce Prank To Stop His Kids Eating His Doughnuts gets his mates to the pub, or The Story Of How A Smuggler Went From Being In The Navy To Banged Up In Morocco, or How Legalising Cannabis Could Be Great For The Economy.

What I'm saying is: get the hell off this page right now because spoilers (like winter) are coming.


You may or may not have noticed that in the last episode that the book Sam was reading showed that he is researching the cure for Greyscale, with Jorah locked away as he suffers from the illness.

Reddit user 'redragebar' has now taken a punt at what might unfold if Sam manages to cure Jorah. The prediction is that after he gets over the illness he will travel to Valyria to uncover the secrets of Valyrian Steel.

Here's the fan theory in full: "Sam leaves for the Ruins of Valyria to search for information about the creation Valyrian steel. He read about the Doom of Valyria and in the process finds the cure for Greyscale, a maester seems to have known something already via Shireen. He meets Jorah, not quite fully consumed yet, and helps to cure him. Jorah, now immune to Greyscale, enters Valyria and finds the secret to Valyrian steel.

"Unfortunately, he also brings tomes with history of the ruin, which Sam discovers is tied to Rh'llor, and Jorah realises that Dany is bound to commit the same destruction, but he tells no one. Dany aids in the destruction of the White Walkers, but Jorah finally learns to put honour above love and has to act against Dany to save Westeros from her madness."

Of course it's only a fan theory, and it should be taken with a pinch of salt, but it doesn't sound too unlikely. If so, it would have huge implications for the rest of the series. It would also mean that Jorah was the unlikely hero, destined to save Westeros from white walkers.

Elsewhere in GoT, Ed Sheeran's cameo split viewers' opinions earlier this week:

Luckily for Ed, the show's director Jeremy Podeswa offered a spirited defence of the singer's brief appearance.

"I'm a bit surprised that people have made that much fuss about it," Podeswa told the Daily Beast.

"The truth is, everybody on the show is famous now, so it doesn't mean anything to me. It's about, are they appropriate for the role? Are they doing a good job? And it was yes, yes, yes to all those questions with him.

"He is a lovely person; he's really down-to-earth. If you didn't know that he was a pop star or an entertainer of any kind, you would think he's just one of the guys. And he is. He really just wanted to do a great job."
