Game of Thrones Season 7 just got over. But, people are already talking about the possibilities in Season 8. The final season of the hugely popular HBO show is expected to break numerous records in terms of viewership. Meanwhile, fans are speculating about the incredible things that might happen in the next season. They are aptly calling these #FakeGameofThronesSpoilers.
Let’s start with Ned Stark, the original gentleman who was beheaded pretty early on in the show. When everyone thought he was the “hero,” King Joffrey ordered his execution. According to recent speculations, Ned Stark is alive. To be honest, they never showed his beheading on camera. So, this speculation has been there for many seasons now.
Game of Thrones has always managed to surprise and shock its fans by coming up with the unexpected. When the show ends with Season 8, fans are expecting an all-time high in terms of surprising elements in the plot. One of the “fake spoilers” suggests that Lyanna Mormont kills the Night King and all three dragons single-handedly. And, she takes the Iron Throne after that. If this happens, it will surely be an extraordinary twist.
Another speculation about GoT Season 8 is that two arch-rivals, Daenerys and Cersei, will become best friends and share the seven kingdoms equally. Now, if you know Cersei even a little bit, you are not going to believe this can happen.
This must be one of the unlikeliest possibilities on the show, especially when Cersei had already started plotting against the Mother of Dragons by the end of Season 7.
According to another speculation, the entire show has been a dream for Bran Stark. In Season 8, he finally wakes up to realize it. There are speculations about Jon Snow as well. Snow, whose real identity has been revealed to be Aegon Targaryen, is speculated to kill the Night King by melting the ice around his heart with a hug.

The speculations continue as there are rumors that the entire plotline of GoT Season 8 has been leaked. The leak has been declared as illegitimate on a Reddit page that elaborately explains why it can’t be real. The actors get the script only a month before the shooting schedule.
Since the final script of the next season has just been completed, it is highly improbable that it is leaked at this point of time.
