Game of Thrones Season 7 has ended, But still, there are many questions that Game of Thrones is never going to answer.
These aren’t the big mysteries but these points are left unanswered in the series. Let’s take a look at these questions:
1) Why was Sam ignored by White Walkers?
In Game of Thrones Season 2, Sam was engulfed by a group of White Walkers and wights. He was not carrying any weapons with him. He hides behind a tiny rock but he had an eye contact with the White Walker leading the troops. There is no reason explained that why they didn’t attack Sam.
I read a few theories about it but none of them seems convincing. One theory says that it was a photography trick and White Walker didn’t saw Sam but he looked at the rock. That might be true, but that means none of the wights saw him either, now that seems impossible.
Other theories say that White Walker wants to leave a witness to spread the word of their arrival. And same happened in the opening scene of Game of Thrones. But given that they’d attacked a huge group of Night’s Watchmen, at least a few of which must have managed to escape, I don’t think one man by himself in the middle of an open wintry field would be all that valuable to them.
2) Tyrion never retaliated against Littlefinger for framing him for the attack on Bran. Why?
Many characters in Game of Thrones are playing the long game(like Varys and Littlefinger) but Tyrion is not one of them. Though he is intelligent and clever he never thought of playing the long game. In fact, his weakness has been restlessness.
Back in Season 1 when an assassin tries to kill Bran, Littlefinger framed Tyrion for Bran’s murder attempt which leads Catelyn Stark to kidnap Tyrion and put him on Trail. This leads to Stark and Lannister conflict. Eventually, Tyrion finds out that he was framed by Littlefinger.
But when Tyrion returns to King’s Landing, he never talks about this with anyone. He just forgets about it like it never happened. There is a possibility that Tyrion is looking for the right time to take revenge.
3) How did Arya survive that stabbing?
It’s really hard to believe that Arya survived that stabbing. In the world where warriors like Robert Baratheon and Khal Drogo died due to injuries, so how would Arya survived that Stabbing by Waif. Her injuries looked so severe that many fans assumed that it wasn’t actually Arya and she had traded her face for someone else’s face.
But it turns out be not true as it was Arya who crawled out of the water. It’s still not clear how she survived that brutal stabbing.
4) Why did Warlocks give up on getting revenge on Dany?
At the House of Undying Daenerys and her Dragons burned Pyat Pree to death, which indeed destroys the Warlocks. But in the beginning of season three, Dany Dany is nearly killed by a young assassin — her blue lips and magical tendencies serving as a clear indication she’s allied with the warlocks. Then, she escapes.
This means that warlocks are still around in some capacity and they want to harm Dany. But after that, they have never seen again. Are they still lying in wait? Will they attempt to take revenge during Daenerys’ assault on Westeros — or maybe even after?
5) How did Melisandre stay young the first time her necklace came off?
That shocking season six premiere in which we came to know that “The Red Women” a.k.a Melisandre is an old woman and she is using magic to keep herself young. Now it looks like the magic is present in her Necklace. As when she removes the necklace she becomes old.
But in a season 4 episode, she takes bath with her necklace off. This question is not answered in the series but there is a theory related to that. During the scene, we get lingering shots of the potions that Melisandre is pouring into the bath, indicating that the magic may not be in the necklace itself, but rather that the necklace is her metaphorical “armour” keeping everything together.
6) Why Jon Snow’s Body wasn’t burned by Night’s Watch?
After Alliser Thorne and other mutineers murdered Jon Snow they just left Jon’s body out in the snow to bleed, this gives Davos an opportunity to pull him inside and wait till Melisandre arrives. The standard procedure for a death in the Night’s Watch is that they put the dead body on the pyre to burn. But didn’t put the body of Jon Snow on the pyre.
7) Why the hell did that one episode ends with a punk song?
Game of Thrones Season 3 episode “Walk of Punishment” ended with a rock cover of “The Bear and the Maiden Fair” by the Hold Steady. It was the only time the show ever did something like this in the entire series. I think it was a major misstep because that episode ends with Jaime losing his hand. It was a powerful and tragic moment as that set his entire story in motion. A rock song at the end of the episode completely ruined the moment and its intensity.
