So, let’s begin.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, HBO has
released some details regarding the spinoff
Let’s take a look at these details.
“Set thousands of years before the events
of Thrones, the project chronicles the world’s
descent from the golden Age of Heroes into
its darkest hour.
A logline from the network teased the plot
without divulging any specifics: “Only one
thing is for sure: from the horrifying secrets
of Westeros’ history to the true origin
of the White Walkers, the mysteries of the
East to the Starks of legend… it’s not
the story we think we know.”
First of all, I just want to say I am really
happy that they chose to go with this prequel
instead of the other ones.
As I had told in LL’s comment shoutout and
as you might have guessed from my crazy theory
videos like my Stark Blood theory, Craster’s
sons theory, Harrenhal’s curse theory, Why
there are No female Whitewalkers etc. theory
videos, that the North and The Starks, the
Whitewalkers and the Children of the Forest
etc. are my favourite part of this series.
As much as I love the dragons, I love these
Judging by the details HBO released, I guess
it’s safe to say that this spin off will
show events starting from the Pact which started
the “Golden Age of Heroes” to its darkest
hour aka the Long Night.
I already discussed these events last year
in my “Clues in History” videos, where
I said the history is repeating itself.
But what do they mean by the “Horrifying
secrets of Westeros history”?
The true origins of Whitewalkers is obviously
how they were created by the Children of the
You know what this means?
We might get to see the events of the Dawn
Age leading up to the creation of the first
whitewalker, i.e. if they decided to show
the war leading upto the pact.
Which also means we will get to see the Night
King’s real face aka the first man from
Bran’s vision and leaf again in this series.
The Mysteries of the East could include the
story of the first Azor A’hai and maybe
also the mysteries of Asshai.
As for the Mysteries of the Starks of legend?
According to HBO, it’s not the story we
think we know.
Do you remember my Stark Blood theory video?
I am even more confident that it might be
I said in that video that the Starks Blood
That Bran the Builder knew the WWs will come
again, so he took precautions, and established
3 things to stop the Whitewalkers.
I’ll post the link to that video in the
end, in case you wanna check out the whole
Anyways, it means not only we will get to
see the Long Night, we will also get to see
the the war for the Dawn, the founding of
the Night’s watch etc.
We will also get to see Bran the Builder building
Winterfell and the wall with the help of the
Children of the Forest and the Giants, and
setting his the house words “Winter is coming,”
and the quote, “There must always be a Stark
in Winterfell” for the bloodmagic.
If you have watched my crazy theory videos,
you already know all about that.
I’ll post my video on the Bloodmagic in
this series soon.
I also think some more mysteries will be revealed
in the end of Game of Thrones Season 8.
It might have to do with the Isle of Faces,
the Children of the Forest and the Starks.
After that, these reveals could be a part
of the spin off series.
According to HBO’s Casey Bloys, “this
series would NOT air until at least one year
after Game of Thrones.”
And as for when Game of Thrones Season 8 will
HBO’s website only says it will return in
After this spin-off series, the next Spin-off
could be about the Andal Invasion leading
up to Aegon’s Conquest.
What do you think?
Anyways, it’s time for the comment shoutout
Todays comment shoutout goes to 99999Janice,
who said, “We know that the actress who
plays Missandei finished her filming for season
8 very early.
She could fulfil either of the love prophecies.
I still think that Dany will be betrayed by
Varys at some point.
We just don’t know what his motives are
Thanks a lot Janice.
I completely agree with you that Varys might
betray Dany eventually.
I also have a crazy theory for why he would
I’ll discuss it in detail in my Varys’s
As for Missendei, it’s an interesting theory.
It’s hard to imagine Missendei betraying
Dany but she could fulfil some other parts
of the love prophecy.
So, what do you think of these theories?
Which stories do you think they will include
in this prequel?
