Number 8: Who is Azor Ahai?
This theory surrounds a prophecy the legendary leader who once saved the world from darkness – Azor Ahai – will be born again. They’ll be born ‘amidst smoke and salt’ and ‘shall draw light from the fire a burning sword, Lightbringer’.
Fairly obviously, the two most popular candidates for the role are John and Daenerys – largely because of Jon’s kickass swordsmanship and Daenerys being born at the height of a storm.
There are a thousand and one blogs explaining why either of these two could be Azor. So, instead, we’re going to focus on another candidate, who’d be a lot more of a curveball … The Hound.
This theory comes from two defining moments in Sandor Clegane’s. The fire that burned him as a child – Aka smoke – and the Battle of Blackwater that almost killed him – aka salt. Plus, it would be a hell of a plot twist to see the Hound, who’s normally thwarted by his fear of fire, saving the day with a flaming sword. You can’t say there wouldn’t be an amazing ending
