This Insane 'Game Of Thrones' Theory About Ser Davos Is Probably Happening


Season six episode eight of "Game of Thrones" proved largely disappointing for many "GoT" fans. Yes, Arya is finally leaving Braavos, Jaqen and the Faceless Men, but for her to recover from a seemingly fatal stab wound and kill the Waif feels a bit unbelievable.

In addition to Arya's remarkable comeback, the Blackfish met a very anticlimactic end, and Daenerys swooped in on Drogon as Meereen fell under siege. Sure, The Mountain ripped someone's head off, but even that wasn't very exciting.

Arguably, the most riveting part of Sunday night's "Game of Thrones" episode was the preview for episode nine. Looking ahead to next week, we know the "Battle of the Bastards," between Jon Snow and Ramsay Bolton, is coming.

However, while this upcoming fight looks like it's going to be one of the biggest events to take place in season six, it might not be the biggest takeaway from the preview for episode nine.

If you watch the video above, you'll notice Ser Davos looking at what appears to be a pile of burned sticks, and, according to some users on Reddit, this could be Davos discovering exactly where Shireen Baratheon was burned to death.

Later in the preview, you can also see Davos charging wildly with his sword, and there are those who think he's charging at Melisandre, rather than a member of the Bolton army.

Davos will presumably connect the dots it was Melisandre who insisted on burning Shireen, which is why he'll be so determined to kill the Red Woman.

Will Davos survive episode nine? There are those who think he will because he's one of the few people in Westeros with information on how to cure greyscale. We know Jorah is searching for a greyscale cure, and a meeting with Davos could be a way for "Game of Thrones" to have multiple storylines intersect.

Guess we'll just have to watch the "Battle of the Bastards" and see.
