It's time for some 'Game of Thrones' game theory!

We've pulled together 30 of the best "Game of Thrones" fan theories on where the George R.R. Martin-based series is headed.

Theory No. 1: The "Game of Thrones" universe is but a glint in a giant's eye.

This theory has its roots in the episode "Lord Snow" where Robb Stark notes that Old Nan once told him "the sky is blue because we live inside the eye of a blue-eyed giant named Macumber."

It's all a big dream, literally

Giant theorists think more hints to this potential twist have dropped through the years. One of the biggest is in "Sigils," a teaser trailer for season 7, which closes with a giant shot of -- wait for it -- a blue eye.  

Other fans think the eye hints at the arrival of the Night King. Maybe only Old Nan knows for sure.

Jon Snow is Azor Ahai

Called the "biggest" fan theory about "Game of Thrones," this one holds that our resurrected hero is "The Prince That Was Promised," aka Azor Ahai, a legendary, fire-sword-wielding savior figure from the books whose name has not yet been uttered on the series. 

Kit Harington told the Huffington Post his character wouldn't "pay much attention" to being the prophesied one.

Daenerys Targaryen is Azor Ahai

This theory is nearly as accepted as the Jon-is-Azor theory. There's even a Redditor who has made a color-coded chart that shows the princess as the odds-on-favorite. It shows her hitting all the right Azor notes, including a shared talent for bringing stone dragons to life.

Davos Seaworth is Azor Ahai

The reformed smuggler is viewed as something of a dark-horse candidate. But an elaborate theory makes a case that the series has hinted at the so-called Onion Knight's destiny going back to when Davos retrieved a cooled, but once-flaming sword from the sand. The theory goes on to give Davos credit for bringing Jon Snow back to life, an act that could be described as having awakened a dragon from stone.

Jaime Lannister is Azor Ahai

This "crazy" theory posits that a High Valyrian translation error has led us to believe Azor Ahai is the Lord of Light when he's actually more like the Lord of Gold. Jaime is, of course, the most golden "Game of Thrones" character, given that he literally has a golden hand.

Samwell Tarly and Jon Snow do *not* reunite

Sam and Jon are the best of friends, but they haven't seen each other in... a while.  

Some fans hoping for a reunion had those hopes dashed by an Instagram of the actors who portray the characters.  

"Briefly, but happily, back together again," read the caption on John Bradley-West's Instagram page.

"Game of Thrones" watchers read the "briefly" part as a sign that the actors (and their characters) are not sharing scenes together.

Tyrion Lannister betrays the Lannisters

This theory -- which looks more than solid at this point -- features Daenerys attacking the Lannisters' Casterly Rock. It then supposes the attack was based on insider knowledge provided by one of the royal family's own: Tyrion.

Bran Stark will lead the Night King through the Wall

The young warg doesn't mean to bring the leader of the White Walkers -- and his army -- into the Seven Kingdoms, this theory says. Bran's arm, marked by the Night King in season 6, will act as a GPS device and show them the way inside.

Cersei becomes the Mad Queen

In the "Game of Thrones" universe, there's already been a Mad King.

The Cersei theory supposes that, now that Jaime's beloved sits atop the Iron Throne, she'll go down the same path and order the fiery destruction of King's Landing. After all, she's already blown up half the city.

Jon Snow learns who his parents really are

We now know once and for all who begat Jon Snow: Lyanna Stark and Rhaegar Targaryen. According to a pair of theories, Jon, who assumed the title "the King in the North," will soon know the truth, too. 

The smoking gun, as it were, is a season 7 publicity still that some think shows Jon at Lyanna's crypt.

Jon Snow will be a dragon rider

Now that Jon has been confirmed to be a blood member of the dragon-friendly Targaryen clan, he's all but considered a lock to join his Aunt (yes, aunt) Daenerys into battle on one of her three flying beasts. 

Jon's riding skills are even said to be glimpsed in the season 7 trailer. Tyrion is seen walking toward the edge of a cliff, and looking upward with mixed emotion. The next shot is of one of Daenerys' dragons. The theory holds that Tyrion is reacting to the sight of Jon riding the winged beast.

Tyrion Lannister will be a dragon rider

If you accept that Jon Snow will be the second dragon rider, and Daenerys is, of course, the first, then the perhaps the fiercest speculation is centered on who will be the third. Who will fulfill the prophecy of the three dragons

Tyrion is considered a good bet because even though he's a Lannister, some theorize he's actually a Targayen, possibly a son of the Mad King. Also, Daenerys' dragons don't hate him.

There will be an ice dragon

This theory suggests that one of Daenerys Targaryen's three dragons -- most likely Viserion -- will die and be resurrected as an ice dragon by the Night King.

The ice dragon will fight with Jon Snow

The ice dragon theory also posits that the zombie will, oddly enough, fight for Jon Snow and the North. The King of the North, who was also resurrected, will be able to tame the ice dragon and ride it.

The Night King will be a dragon rider

If the ice dragon theory is right, then the Night King would be able to mount Viserion and even the odds with Dany's two dragons.

There’s an ice dragon in the Wall

With hints that the Wall will come crashing down at some point, this theory suggests that the Horn of Winter -- found by Samwell Tarly -- will awaken an ice dragon in the Wall, causing the structure to collapse.

Euron Greyjoy will control a dragon

Earlier in season 7, Euron Greyjoy promised Cersei a gift in exchange for an allegiance. Could that gift be   Yara's ships? Or is it the Dragonbinder, a horn that can supposedly control a dragon?

The Cleganebowl is happening

Fans have been waiting for the Clegane brothers -- the Mountain and the Hound -- to battle to the death since the two fought in Season 1.

If the Hound's vision from the season 7 premiere is to be trusted, then the two could finally clash at the Wall.

Bran is Bran the Builder

Bran the Builder -- also known as the first Brandon Stark -- built the Wall and Winterfell centuries ago. This theory suggests that the second Bran wargs into the past to construct the Wall... and tells people his name while he's there.

Bran is the Night King

In this concept, Bran wargs into past and into the man who becomes the Night King as the Children of the Forest begin their ritual. Bran is then trapped in the Night King's body.

Bran caused Aerys Targaryen to go mad

With Bran's powers to warg into the past, could he have caused the Mad King to actually go crazy? The belief is that during his viewing of the past, Bran will call out to Aerys Targaryen, causing him to hear voices.

The union of fire and ice

Many fans believe that Dany the Dragon Queen and King of the North could get hitched.

The two are most likely related, sure, but that hasn't stopped Targaryens in the past.

The return of Gendry?

Remember Gendry? He's the illegitimate son of Robert Baratheon, who was shipped off on a boat earlier in the series. Rumors are swirling that Gendry could make a triumphant return, teaming up with Jon Snow and Thoros of Myr in season 7.

Jaime Lannister will kill Cersei

This is a widely popular theory. And it's one that Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, the actor who portrays Cersei's twin sibling and lover, Jaime, doesn't necessarily buy.  

"It's probably too obvious," Coster-Waldau has said

Jon Snow will kill Cersei

This is a less-popular theory, but it's a good one. Like the Jaime-kills-Cersei supposition, it's rooted in a scene from the books wherein the witch Maggy tells a teenaged Cersei she will be choked to death by "the Valonqar." The latter is said to be High Valyrian for "little brother."

The Jon-kills-Cersei theory holds that anyone who is a little brother could be the culprit, including one Jon Snow.

Tyrion Lannister kills Cersei

Perhaps the only thing less surprising to "Game of Thrones" fans than Jaime Lannister taking the life of his sister would be Tyrion Lannister, another of the queen's brothers, doing the deed. Like Jaime, Tyrion pretty much fits the Maggy prophecy to a T.

Arya Stark will kill Cersei

Add a Stark to the list of suspects of our potential murderer. For one thing, Arya has a kill list. For another, as explained in The Independent, Valonqar could actually mean a more inclusive "little sibling." It all depends on who's doing the High Valyrian translation, we suppose.

Arya Stark kills Petyr Baelish

This Reddit-borne theory holds that the smarmy Baelish, aka Littlefinger, plots the demise of Jon Snow only to get offed himself by Arya, who supposedly has returned to Winterfell ready to take care of business.

Arya Stark is dead... and has been dead for a while

In season 6, Arya kills the Waif in a darkened alley... or does she? The Arya-is-dead theory holds that it was actually the Waif who prevailed, and then assumed Arya's identity by wearing her face. This turn of events is hinted at, believers speculate, when Jaqen H'ghar tells Arya (or should we say, the Waif?) that she has "become no one."

Ed Sheeran gets out alive, probably

For the record, the British singer-songwriter has said that he doesn't die in his role on the show... but the show isn't over yet, is it?
