Winds of Winter: ‘Major, EARTH-SHAKING events at The Wall and Oldtown’? – Right here’s why 1

Now a brand new idea by SerKurtWager on Reddit argues that Bran the Builder constructed the Hightower as a magical battery for The Wall.

And their finest guess is that The Faceless Males will destroy each with the Horn of Winter.

The theorist writes: “Trying into what’s to come back in Winds of Winter, main, earth-shaking occasions are shaping up at Oldtown and The Wall.

“As of now, these locations are linked by one factor – Samwell Tarly, a Evening’s Watch member who (based on the probably theories) occurs to be carrying across the Horn of Winter.”

They continued: “Except Sam manages to make it again to the Wall over the course of Winds, it appears possible that (if the Horn isn’t a purple herring) will probably be activated and blown whereas in Oldtown.

“However this paints a quite anticlimactic image if the blowing of the Horn is absent from its dramatic payoff.

“Nonetheless, wanting into the lore, there’s one other large connection between these areas, one that would come into play in an enormous manner.

“Each are outlined by impossibly massive feats of magical structure. And each of them had been, based on legend, constructed by the identical man – Bran the Builder.”

They added: “Everyone knows why the Wall was constructed. However the goal of the Hightower, like a lot else in Oldtown, stays a thriller. For hundreds of years a regular lighthouse sufficed. Why out of the blue use sorcery to create this huge beacon?

“Once we take a look at the historical past of Home Hightower, we discover the implications of a task just like the Evening’s Watch – Their phrases: ‘We Light the Way’. Their sword: ‘Vigilance’.

“Nonetheless, Home Hightower has lengthy since deserted any connection to the Outdated Gods or Age of Heroes in trade for monetary acquire and safety. They’ve forgotten their very own goal, a story-telling conceit very a lot according to Martin’s model.

“My proposal is that Bran the Builder raised the Hightower and the Wall as a part of the identical venture. The Hightower capabilities as a magical battery for no matter spell holds the Wall collectively. The place higher to place such an engine than the literal furthest level on Westeros from The Others’ area?”

They concluded: “However whereas the Hightowers could have forgotten this, the Faceless Males haven’t. We all know they’re in Oldtown for some purpose.

“I posit that, with the Others on the march, they’re right here to discover a technique to unleash the ability of the Many-Confronted God/Nice Different by destroying what’s holding it again. And Sam has unwittingly introduced the one weapon that may do it proper to them.

“I foresee that Lord Leyton will unleash a magical protection able to defeating Euron (who must lose a battle to progress his character). “However whereas town is celebrating, a worse catastrophe will strike.

“Whether or not it’s ‘Not-Pate’ or Euron himself, somebody will blow the Horn. The Hightower will fall and with it, the Wall, unleashing the ability of the Nice Different onto Westeros as soon as once more.”

In the meantime, one other well-liked idea reckons that The Winds of Winter will likely be extra of a horror.

Reddit consumer GenghisKazoo argues: “Count on some high-concept, bizarre, horrifying s*** to occur in TWOW.

“And count on the man who GRRM added three new Greyjoy POVs for and wrapped in apocalyptic imagery to be intimately concerned in it.”

The Winds of Winter could launch in 2020.
