'Game Of Thrones' Fan Notices Something Odd In The Way Characters Die

'Game Of Thrones' Fan Notices Something Odd In The Way Characters Die

WARNING: Season seven spoilers, like winter, are coming

If there's one thing that Game Of Thrones is known for - well, apart from deaths, incest and sprawling, epic storylines - it's definitely fan theories.

There've been hundreds of 'em down the years, from the plausible to the just plain batshit. And as the show nears its conclusion, with only one season left, it's unlikely the flow will stop any time soon.

If you don't know what I mean, here's a handful of some of the more recent ideas to be explored by the show's enormous fanbase:

Take another look at Ned Stark's death to stir up some memories, and see if you can link it all somehow...

Deaths are ten-a-penny in the show - they're almost as common as fan theories - but now it's emerged that there could be a pattern to the way characters die.

Redditor razobak09 recently posted about how many of the characters' deaths seem to present an homage to their most important moments in the show - all the way from Ned Stark's beheading to Littlefinger's death by Valyrian dagger.

He wrote: "Ned Stark used his greatsword Ice to behead the Night's Watchman; he was beheaded with his own sword. Joffrey gave the command to execute Ned; he was killed in a way that took away his ability to speak.

"Tywin ordered the Red Wedding, where numerous Stark men were killed by crossbow-wielding musicians; he was killed by a crossbow."

Although razobak09 does admit that Joffrey's death is a stretch, there is no denying that there could be something in this theory.

If you needed further proof, there's more.

"Roose Bolton killed Robb Stark with a knife to the heart; he was killed by a knife to the heart," the redditor continues.

"Walder Frey ordered Catelyn Stark's throat cut at the end of the Red Wedding; he had his throat cut by Arya."

Still want more?

They continue: "Ramsay Bolton was fond of people to his hounds; he was fed to his own hounds. The Sand Snakes were each killed in a way that mirrored their own style: Nymeria was strangled by her own whip, Obara was impaled with her own spear, and Tyene was killed by her favourite poison."

And what about Littlefinger's betrayal of Ned Stark, and the Valyrian Catspaw Dagger used in the attempt to have Bran Stark assassinated, which was then blamed on the Lannisters and sparked the Lannister-Stark conflict? Razobak09 added: "He was executed by having his throat cut by the Valyrian Catspaw Dagger."

If anything, it shows how detailed the show's writers and creators have been in their meticulous planning and adapting of the George R.R. Martin novels.

Certainly convincing, no?
