Will Jon Snow lead the army of White Walkers back up north of the wall? (Theory)
I know the theory that Jon Snow will ultimately become a White Walker is not exactly new. It was proposed in the context of end of Season 5, when Jon had died, before being brought back to life by Melisandre in Season 6 premiere. The most interesting bit about Jon's character is that he has both Targaryen and Stark lineage, with the confirmation of R+L=Jon theory.
It’s known in this series that the Night’s King was a Lord Commander of the Night’s Watch who fell in love with a White Walker. However, some believe the Night’s King was a Stark and is linked to the Stark line through blood magic. According to the legend, that’s one of the reasons why the Starks must always rule the North. In that regard, just as Dany has dragon’s blood flowing through her veins, the Starks have the icy blood of the Others in theirs. While we’ve only seen living babies turned into White Walkers, with corpses being risen as mindless wights, Snow’s bloodline could allow his body to successfully become a White Walker leader.
That means while most likely him, Dany and Tyrion wi...
Will Lady Stoneheart (Revived Catelyn Stark) be in Season 7? (Theory)
Lady Stoneheart is the zombie Catelyn Stark in the books.
While Arya and Brienne sparred — as Sansa watched from above — in Sunday's episode, one observant viewer thought they may have spotted Mama Stark returning to check up on her two daughters."If you watch the sparring scene in [season seven episode four, “The Spoils of War”] between Arya and Brienne, when Arya asks, 'Didn’t you vow to serve both my MOTHER’s daughters?' – at the word 'MOTHER' you can see a woman in a long green dress [with] long auburn wavy hair with her head down walking past the background gate, resembling Cat," wrote Reddit user GrennsGal. "If it’s unintentional, it’s awesome. If not, more awesome. Catelyn cheking on Brienne keeping her vows."
7. Dany's war council, which was almost exclusively women in Episode 2 is now exclusively men, as the women have been killed or captured. A real slap in the face to those who were hoping that GoT was going to be an epic step forward for feminism.

Rhaegar is Azor Ahai. Jon Snow is Lightbringer aka The Prince That Was Promised (Theory)
Since we are collecting all the top theories here, I thought I'd drop this one I found that's going viral on the web. It's the first comment on this Youtube video by user Bael Bard: youtube.com/watch?v=O3o2LqFZcGU. Funnily, it was posted 2 years ago! Here's the theory:
Rhaegar is Azor Ahai. Jon Snow is Lightbringer aka The Prince That Was Promised. There were three attempts to create the sword according to legend. " He labored for thirty days and thirty nights until it was done. However, when he went to temper it in water, the sword broke. The second time he took fifty days and fifty nights to make the sword, even better than the first. To temper it this time, he captured a lion and drove the sword into its heart, but once more the steel shattered. The third time, with a heavy heart, for he knew before hand what he must do to finish the blade, he worked for a hundred days and nights until it was finished. This time, he called for his wife, Nissa Nissa, and asked her to bare her breast. He drove his sword into her breast, her soul combining with the steel of the sword, creating Lightbringer" Here is three attempts:
Continuing the thread of Azor Ahoi theories, let's t...

The real 'Prince That Was Promised'
What do you think about this theory? :)
According to George R. R. Martin, the prophecies are not to be taken literally. With that in mind, Reddit user REDLOVENOW drew some parallels between the story of Azor Ahai and Tyrion's story. He stated that Tyrion was tested by water in the Battle of Blackwater Bay, but he was shattered when he lost all the power in the city. The next test was the lion himself, his father, Tywin Lannister. But killing him broke Tyrion once again as he lost his purpose. And he also killed his beloved Shae who can fulfill the role of Nissa Nissa. It was then when Tyrion Lannister began his journey to find his real purpose again in the form of Daenerys Targaryen, the embodiment of fire. In The real 'Prince That Was Promised', Tyrion is trying to convince his Queen to ally with Jon Snow, thus bringing the ice and fire together. And we also know from "A Clash of Kings" that a song of ice and fire is the song of "The Prince That Was Promised." Finally, let's not forget the look the Red Priestess gave to Tyrion in Volantis when she was talking about the savior. You can check out the scene down below.
